Bicycle Repair Man (monty Python ref)
The Nut Fettler
The Bike Botherer
if you are a mobile business… the Bike Ambulance
Bicycle Repair Dude (this one says it all, does what it says on the tin, chilled, laid back, no funny puns that are funny now, but not what you would want to hang you future and business on… I rate this one)
The Cycle Surgeon
The Cycle Shamen.
Yep Bicycle Repair dude is my favourite, but quite a few there to get you thinking, can you tell I have had a couple of pints and used to work in marketing?Posted 8 years agogavinskiMember
If you want something that everyone will get – then probably most of the good ones have been taken, i like bicycle works (Edinbugh, but probably others too, there’s probably no problem with a name like that being re used), but why not a name that’s not bike related – i like TLC cycle repair above – you can have whatever you want as the meaning of the acronym, so you can play about with it in the shop or online – but it’s still clear what you do from a passing punter yellow pages type thing.
If you go for an ‘in joke’ you risk people missing what you do, but might be good if you want to appeal to high end customers. I’m failing to think of anything really good – the only stuff i can think of is numbers:
32-16 bikes (might be useful as you could get it as the last 4 digits of your phone number?)Posted 8 years agobpMember
You may want to include your location in the name, assuming your customer base will predominatly local, or at least use the general area or county you are expecting to service.
Keep it simple and not too cyryptic or with too many puns or most people won’t get it – even if you’re really proud of the name. Get the word bike or cycle in it somewhere, and something that says you do repairs not sales. Many of the above are clever, but most could be applied to a number of different businesses.
They might be a bit boring, but the are the ones that work are the ones that tell people exactly what your business is in 3 or 4 words.
‘The Wigan Bike Fixer’
‘Sheffield Cycle Repairs’
‘Surrey Bicycle Maintenance’

thanks people truely brilliant suggestions…still laughing at some of them. Currently just a guy in a garage but have a steady flow of customers so hoping it continues.
Still at uni so can’t do it full time (plus i still have lots to learn about bikes) so names that don’t pin down location too much are good.
Currently under Chudleigh Cycle Reapir and Servicing but wanted something more light hearted and shorter… the short list so far is….
The Cycle Shamen
Tea, Lube and Cake (TLC)
The Bike Pit
The Sultans of spin
The Fettling Room
The greasy pump
Feel free to post more will take me a while to decide i think 😀

See how long before all the illiterate/dsylexic Daily mail readers turn up with the pitchforks and burning torches?
LMAO… funniest post ….. ever! Just make sure you get your shop insured against illiterate Sun ‘readers’ (like there’s any other kind).
My contribution to the inappropriate innuendo selection is ‘Pumps and Hose’ (as in Pimps and Ho’s)…. hmmm ;~Posted 8 years ago
