Founded by Gianni Piva in the 1980s in the Italian town of Montebelluna, Northwave is owned by the Piva family. It wasn't until the 1990s that products on cycling shoes began, having previously been a snowboard equipment manufacturer. 1993 marked their first MTB shoe, and in 1996, Paola Pezzo won the first XC MTB Olympic gold wearing their products. Succes on the road followed shortly afterwards, with Ivan Gotti's victory in the 1997 Giro d'Italia, followed by a second Olympic gold for Pezzo in 2000. Subsequent iconic cyclists to have won using the Northwave brand include Cipollini, Gunn-Rita Dahle, Boonen, Gilbert and Cancellara.

Start Fitness (or Start Cycles!)
Start Fitness (otherwise known as Start Cycles) started life in 1991, founded by a group of fitness enthusiasts. Primarily based in the North of England, they stock a whole host of products, from running to football, but more importantly (from our perspective!) also a reasonably wide selection of cycling gear. In particular, in recent months they've been selling road and mountain bikes at huge discounts, so if you're after a new bike then this is one of the first places I'd recommend looking (Handy quick link to their Bikes & Frames in order of discount!). I've never personally ordered from them, but several of my website's visitors have got in touch with positive feedback after snagging a bargain.
They have three main stores located in Newcastle, Durham and Darlington, but offer UK delivery via their website at (Clothing is currently £2.95 P&P, Footwear is £4.95). You can read more about their history here.
