Bike shops in Sheffield

Recommended Posts

Hi I have recently brought my mountain bike up from back home. I have never used it in Sheffield but was wondering if anyone could recommend a reliable bike shop I could use to get it looked over. It is in need of a few new bits and bobs i.e. new tyres, brakes etc. It is a Specialized bike, so a shop that stocks them might be helpful. I live on the University side of town so any shops near there would be preferable.

 

Cheers

No, I believe that's long-gone. There is of course J E James just off Queens Road, but the opinions of the cycling fraternity are a tad divided about the place......

yeah, Decathlon is brill. Just had mine serviced there. Do not go to JE James - the staff are lazy and cannot be bothered to serve anyone!
