    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?)

    Too lazy to fix your bike yourself bring it in here and I’ll charge a small fortune for a simple job, sucking through teeth guaranteed.

    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’

    etc, etc, etc

    Good luck!

    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….

    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 ;~
