Prefer it to the last version.

Small comments:
•  Your editorial text div on home page seems to be cutting off the bottom of the last line of text
•  The footer is ugly stacked like that.
•  Your use of em-dashes is at odds with contemporary British style, makes you look American or decades out of date.
•  Having the News link to go a page that hoiks your blogger page in as a frame looks a bit ungainly :D
•  Do you need the double navigation for your content filtering options? E.g. left column you have links to price brackets and product type, which directly duplicate the functionality of your drop down boxes at the top of the main column. Maybe have it once and make it awesome rather than twice but weak.

Mmmh also. You have a lot of offer deals on your products, written out as sentences, followed by some buttons. I sort of read this to be the product info followed by the add to cart button, but that does not appear until later, maybe format it to look more like an offer and have the 'Add to cart' button closer to the images.

The checkout button in the header has poor internal contrast. The beige colour contrasts well with the black, but then you have white text on a beige background within the button :-\ (edit, see 5th post instead re: buttons)

That is some excellent feedback chap, cheers!

Would you prefer the footer to be horizontally laid out?

Yep. Probably don't center it either, nothing else is centered.

It is more of a problem on the home page where you have the logo SCP underneath it as well (on other pages this is missing, make it consistant imo), makes for a very tall footer that is mostly empty space.

Er also homepage text you have the line height set equal the font size, which is resulting on some clashing (eg the 'g' of 'globally for orders over £60' is colliding with the '0'). Increase the line height. Elsewhere on the site it seems to be set at 1.5em for running text, which looks more comfortable.

On the offer detail 'Here's how' link text on product pages the link is running on to include the space after how. The link should end after the w not the space, as the running on underlining looks odd currently.

More significantly, the formatting seems to have broken towards the end of the product info pages. Customer reviews sort of runs into customers also viewed/bought, needs space or one of your lil rules. The left hand nav column also appears empty.

The beige/white button text seems to vary a fair bit browser to browser, looks fine in FF, hm. Anyway, the button colour does not seem to be systematised across the site. Header checkout button is biege, then the proceed to checkout button is blue, but the edit cart button is beige with blue text, and the search go button is blue, etc

I'll stop now.

Was looking through parts for The Khazari and one of the bikes shows a 28mm tarragin instead!

This is the offending mini:
