+1 for Wilsons on City Road also.
He's a Sheffield legend is Tony Butterworth - I didn't even realise he was still going - but if he is then I'd definitely trust him to sort it out for a fair price.
To be honest, bikes aren't that difficult to fix. I'm no bicycle mechanic but I bought one of those Haynes bicycle manuals and they are absolutely brilliant for teaching monkeys like me how to do bicycle repairs. Might be worth investing a few quid in one of them and having a go yourself? Be cheaper in the long run anyhow.
