Good people, great advice, and they don’t rip you off or treat you like a numpty when you’re still a newbie to this game.
Keen riders, but even keener to see you al enjoying riding too.
Very good stock of fiddly little components too.
Whats a LBS.?
We’ve got halfords. The kid who worked there a few years ago was helpful and a **** good rider. This kid on there now is shocking.
We have a shop a mile or two away that doesn’t even stock nine speed chains.! Manly cater for child’s bikes a super market specials.
All the others are a 20-30 mile round trip. Thats why I have to DIY.Posted 9 years agothomthumbMemberTrailrider JimSubscriber
Shrewsbury has two top lbs’s, Dave Mellor Cycles and Stan Jones Cycles. One’s a Trek dealer, the other’s Giant and Spesh. Both owners come out on the Wednesday night club rides and both will usually price-match tinterweb. For stuff you really need to try before you buy, they’re essential imo. Now that’s a plug for you 🙂Posted 9 years agoWhatafackinLibertyMember
I-Cycles in Innerleithen – Great service, down to earth pricing.
Alpine Bikes: Okay service, though stuff in stock is always an issue.
The Hub at GT: Not cheap, not great for a speedy fix or repair, but quality of actual work is second to none, if you get the right mechanic.
