Keen and enthusiastic about all types of bikes, i've taken in £4k+ bikes for a service and £100 bikes for service, and the results are fantastic. Steer clear of the chump from Sidmouth Cycles, he's a real wheeler dealer trying to con anybody that doesn't know about bikes out of money! Go and see Jim instead, I've been mega impressed... More

A little gem of a bike shop. Jim is always helpful and willing to advise. For new parts or servicing, I wouldn't go anywhere else!

This is a proper shop. Time has stood still, what a shame all service shops are not run like this. Jim cannot do enough for you. We would not go anywhere else.

This place is run how all service shops should be run. Completely reasonable prices set by a man who knows his trade. No attempt to inflate prices. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

What a nice, helpful man. Nothing is too much trouble and he really knows his stuff. His name isn't Mr Fish but he'll answer to it!
