Top bosses of bike giant Wiggle have been appointed as directors of Chain Reaction following their merger.

The multi-million-pound merger of the Co Antrim online bike giant Chain Reaction Cycles and international rival Wiggle received clearance from the Competition and Markets Authority in June.

Now, fresh documents filed to Companies House for Chain Reaction Cycles Ltd show Wiggle's chief executive Stefan Barden is among three bosses at the company who have been appointed as directors. It also includes the firm's chief financial officer, David Giles and Brian McBride.

Chain Reaction was founded as a bike shop by Chris Watson's parents, Janice and George, in Ballynure in 1984.
