Praise your LBS?
There’s a lot of threads all over the forums etc about how some LBS’s are struggling due to online retailers and people doing their own maintenance etc so I thought it would be a good idea to have somewhere to praise your LBS.
Not sure if there already is this sort of thing here?
Firth Cycles in Queensbury, Bradford.
Brilliant staff and always helpful and competitive prices! I do most of my own work but if there’s ever a job I can’t do myself (wheels/headset) this is the place I’d go. Barry (owner) is a top bloke and knows what he is doing that’s for sure.Posted 4 years agoaazladSubscriber
Not strictly my LBS but local to where I work…
Bicycle Doctor in Rusholme, Manchester.
Currently rebuilding a set of wheels for me. Fantastic service and thoroughly nice chaps. I would much rather give my cash to these guys than to CRC, Wiggle, etc. Just a shame the parts stock is a bit limited (as it is with most LBSs).Posted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Stonehenge Cycles, Salisbury
Lovely, lovely people. A family run shop which really feels like it. Always some great banter, but tempered with perfect advice and superb stock. They stock stuff you need and enough stuff you want,too!
Oh, and they have a Ginge. And a Scoobs. 😉Posted 4 years agoRosssMember
If i’m at home, Swinnerton Cycles Cannock chase and Twowheelsonly, Tamworth have been helpful or more than one occasion. I’ve yet to find anywhere at down here in Newport/Cardiff but Done Skene looks promising.
Bike Chain Ricci, Redruth is my Cornish sortofLBS. Superb staff, Mechanics can fix anything, good stock and occasionally Sam’s kind 😆Posted 4 years agolungeSubscriber
As risk of starting the great Stourbridge bike shop debate…
Race Co Cycles, Stourbridge. A good shop run by a good guy who does have the odd habit of winding people up.
Two Wheels, Stourbridge. A treasure trove, great mechanics and very knowledgeable staff. My go to shop even though I’ve probably spent more at Race Co.
John Atkins, Leamington. Top shop, lots of bike porn and very helpful staff, they sorted out a warranty issue I had with minimal fuss. I like them.
I should really pop into Bache Brothers though, not been there for a long time.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber

Coming up to a big 4 day race this weekend, opened early and late to accommodate all the servicing requests (despite trying to pack at the same time to do official race support) price matching, great deals, friday night beers. Just held an info/nerve settling session for anyone heading off racing this weekend after work. Can’t ask for much more.BenHouldsworthMember
CrossTrax in Leeds.
Always helpful, great mechanics and great value.
Dropped my bike in late one Saturday afternoon with no notice and they shortened my hoses and bled my brakes within the hour then only wanted a tenner.
Even if something was cheaper online I’d pay more just for their service.Posted 4 years agoMackemMember
Ciclopolis, Romo – near Bilbao.
Always do a good job on the servicing, decent prices. Their bargain bucket keeps me going in gloves and socks. Nice lads, always keen to point and poke at bits they’ve never seen before. Always have stock of stuff you want straightaway like pads, tubes, cables etc. And 3€ for some sealant and to mount your tubeless tyres within 5 minutes of going into the shop is pretty damn good.Posted 4 years ago
