Looking for good bike shop for maintenance/tune-up
Posted October 16th, 2010 - 9:26 am by from London, England (Permalink)
Hi everyone

My bike is badly in need of a tune-up (new chain, wheels trued, new tires, etc.). Can anyone recommend a good shop for bike maintenance?

Thanks!
Fiona

Hola a todos

Mi bici necesita afinación. ¿Alguien puede recomendar una buena tienda de bicis donde puedo traer mi bici por mantenimiento?

¡Muchas gracias!

Hi Fiona,
If you want something more affordable you can always try Dectahlon. Personally I would recommend Probike in carrer Viladomat. You will get very good advice and service.
Good luck,
David.

Hi David
I have a fairly high-end bike so I would only go to a specialist bike shop with proper mechanics rather than someplace like Decathlon. Maybe they're fine, but I don't think I would trust them to do the job properly.
I'll go and check out Probike and see what kind of maintenance they offer. Thanks for the suggestion!
Cheers!
Fiona

Hi,
Been there a few times and they know what they are doing. You can go and ask but if you wanna get it repaired you should book in advance. When you call as for "taller"
Good luck,
David.

PS: I don't work there...
