Positive comments for Bike shops that you would recommend.
I find it very hard to fault the service from Merlin Cycles.
Very competetive pricing and great communication.
Had a very positive experience recently when I had to change a set of Xt brakes under warranty, got the impression that nothing would have been too much trouble for them.
Now my regular not-quite-local-but-the-nearest-thing shop!Posted 5 years agobolMember
Streetlife Cycles in Norwich. A proper LBS. A bit random compared with the corporate chains, but does all the things a good local bike shop should, plus they’re happy to build you a bike from your bits (for a fair price), and are all keen riders. Always something interesting to look at too.Posted 5 years agoRosssMember
All the guys and gals at Mammoth Cycles and Swinnerton Cycles Forest Centre have always been brilliant. So much so that when I’ve paid my holiday off I’ve decided that im going to go and spend over the odds on some new bars and stem rather than going to CRC. Which have been faultless too but i’d rather go in store.Posted 5 years agoandypaul99Member
Pedalon : not my local bike shop but very impressed with the service. ordered a complete bike with them but called first with a couple of questions, one of which they didnt know the answer to and i got the dreaded ‘ ill give you a call back in 5 mins’ , two mins later the guy called me back with the answers. ( that never happens with my LBS) , my bike then arrived 4 days earlier than the sales guy estimated. Bike was expertly packaged and im over the moon with it. I’ll definately use them again. brill.Posted 5 years agopatriotproMember
Members have every right to post up negative experiences and this doesn’t automatically make them “crap”. 🙄
However i will second BETD Goldtec and raise you the big bad CRC who have nearly always been good and when they’ve been less than good, they’ve always been prompt to rectify the situation. Communication has also been very good from them.
Another one is Spen Velo (lbs) who I’m sure is in the business simply for the love of tinkering with bikes. Chris who owns it puts the same effort into his work (passion/hobby) whether it be fitting a new cable or a full build. I do genuinely feel lucky to have him as the lbs owner.Posted 5 years agogonetothehillsSubscriber
A big +1 for Cycle Centre in Congleton. Very fortunate to have them as my LBS and I know they’re pretty hot on the mail order front too. Also found good service from Merlin, 18 Bikes and On One / PX. I think the key in these places’ success is the people who work there know their stuff, ride bikes and price sensibly. Just my 10 cents…Posted 5 years ago
