A top ten list of load speeds of the UK's most popular online cycle shops places J E James at front of the virtual peleton.

Created by Bikes.org.uk, the rankings show just how seriously the market has taken online retail, with the top nine posting load times of under Google's 'fast' bracket of 1.5 seconds.

The top ten, as tested (twice over, using Pingdom.com) by bikes.org.uk are:
