Our New Klarna Alternative

Peak Ascent Cycles is no longer offering Klarna. We are now an FCA registered business and will soon be offering finance options with our new partners V12 Retail Finance.

Peak Ascent Cycles thanks Klarna for their services, allowing our customers to consider different payment options when purchasing their bike. However in recent months we’ve identified potential gains for our customers in using other credit providers.

We’ve taken the decision to improve our payment options, by registering with the financial conduct authority and successfully applying to offer v12 retail finance. The V12 Retail Finance system has been developed over the past 10 years in close collaboration with their retail partners. It offers easier application processing and faster credit decisions across all channels – whether in-store, mail order or online. 

We’re currently finalising which finance products will be available at Peak Ascent Cycles, and we’re hoping to go live as we move premises in June 2021.

Sign up to our newsletter if you would like to be notified when V12 goes live – please use the form on our contact page and ensure you tick the box to be added to the newsletter.


V12 Retail Finance Limited are owned by Secure Trust Bank PLC.

V12 Retail Finance Limited are registered in England and Wales 4585692. Authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Big shout out to Peak Ascent Cycles for an emergency repair whilst out on a... charity patrol in Buxton today! As part of the Stockport Spider-Men & Friends, we have been patrolling Buxton in costumes trying to bring cheer to folk during Lockdown, whilst simultaneously raising awareness and funds for the mental health charity- Papyrus. But today our wagon broke down, I knew I could rely on Peak Ascent to help out and he did it for free!! SK17 6EU It’s not the first (or last, soz) that I turn up hoping they can sort us out there and then- they’ve never let us down! The service is amazing, the prices are SO GOOD and I love visiting with my big Dutch style bike or my husbands original 1950s Dutch postal bike which are both totally unsuitable for Buxton 😂 An eye roll and a giggle but never a no! I can’t recommend this shop enough!read more

Patrick Healy, Peak Ascent Cycles

I’ve already spent three decades riding bikes! 

It’s sparked a passion to open my own bike shop and create a place to meet and help like-minded enthusiasts.

Peak Ascent Cycles is about sharing my love for all things cycling. It’s an opportunity to give back what cycling has given to me over the years.

I’ve created this article which gives a brief overview of my cycling journey.
