List of local bike shops

Thinking of buying a new bike? We appreciate that in these times the idea of saving some money and buying a bike from an online retailer sounds like a good idea, however we would ask you to consider the benefits of buying your bike from a reputable dealer face to face

 

  • You get professional service

  • You get a bike which fits you first time, and you have a better chance of ending up with the right bike for your needs and budget

  • You get the bike set up properly and all the bits are in the right place and all the bolts are tight

  • If you have a problem you can take it back and get it fixed

  • After a few weeks use all bike need a little tweak here and there to keep them running smoothly, this first service is normally included in the shop price of the bike

     

All the bike shops listed below will give you a good deal and professional service, it's worth paying a few pounds extra for service and peace of mind.   If you buy a new bike online or have purchased a second hand bike from an online auction site then we suggest you contact one of the mobile cycle mechanics listed below and have your bike thoroughly inspected before you ride out.
