- Help! Honest bike shop nr reading needed.
My friend is in desperate need of an honest bike shop near reading (he lives in Goring). I built him a Merlin ht for a bargain price. Thanks to his current local bike shop he’s now spent much more.
Can anyone recommend somewhere?Posted 7 years agobikewhispererMember
I used to work in the workshop at AW cycles. They’re an honest bunch!Posted 7 years agoboxxer7Member
Bought my frame from AW cycles and they were very helpful, have also used them for a warranty claim too, all done mail order. Couldnt be happier.Posted 7 years agostufieldMember
+1 for AW Cycles, they were great in bike fit and shoes for my road bike.Posted 7 years agomaujaMember
The guys at pedalon are a good bunch, shop is in Tadley so probably as easy to get to from Goring as going into Reading.Posted 7 years ago
Thanks for the recommendations I’ll pass on to my friend.Posted 7 years agonjee20Subscriber
Pedal On, ‘Trax and AW are all spot on, you’ll not go wrong with any of them. Pedal On and Trax are worth a visit just to mooch!Posted 7 years ago
Mountain Mania not recommended then?Posted 7 years agoska-49Member
If he ever heads over to Newbury the guys a Banjo cycles and BikeLux are great! Strongly suggest not going to Supernova cycles. Over priced and poor service.Posted 7 years agoKevsterjwMember

in Pangbourne? Shop has gone. AW are good, I use mountain high in wallingford.Posted 7 years agotonydMember
+1 Mountain Trax. I’ve spent hours in there talking about tyre choice, gear setup, <insert boring bike related subject here>, in the past and they love it 🙂Posted 7 years ago
Kevster – I thought Mountain Mania had opened a store in Goring High Street, and presumed that was the local bike shop referred to in the OP.Posted 7 years ago
I’ve never used the Tring or Didcot branch, so no opinion on them either way…madhouseSubscriber
+1 for PedalOn in Tadley, top guys and on my experiences they always give good advice even if it’s “we’ve got last years one on sale if you want to save a few quid”.Posted 7 years ago
Thanks for the additional votes. Yes I think it was Mountain Mania, the less said about them the better!Posted 7 years ago
I should have done this before I built him the bike.Posted 7 years agopstevensnzMember
Yep, Mountain Mania have opened a store in Goring High Street, but I’m not sure what they’re like…
I’ve used both Mountain Trax and Pedal On quite a bit and recommend them both. If its just servicing you’re after I also recommend purple bike shed in Fleet (nearish to Reading!).Posted 7 years ago
