Space 48 has been appointed by online bike retailer Winstanleys Bikes to design and build its new e-commerce website.

The Manchester agency will build the site using the Magento platform and will also look to bring its user experience up to the level of its in-store shopping experience.

Wigan-based Winstanleys, one of the largest bike suppliers in the UK, is aiming to become one of the top 10 online bike retailers in the country.
