Needed advice regarding a rear derailleur issue, and got very helpful, fast and affordable service. Left with all my gears in tip-top condition, with full details of work carried out and effective remedial action for the future. Brilliant work by Calum.

Bike Hire
Visiting my sister and brother in law I left my own electric bike at home down south. We wanted to ride out along the canal and around Appin so visited Foss at Off Beat Bikes. They soon got me sorted with a beautiful new electric bike and I covered an easy 46 miles in brilliant Scottish sunshine ( I know, I was exceptionally lucky all week!) Everyone there very helpful and knowledgeable and I would certainly recommend.

Went and rented bikes last minute and without warning on a busy holiday weekend. They had to bikes ready for us to go and we were on our way in under 20 mins. Amazing kind and chatty staff and actually genuinely interested in their customers and really helpful with tips, sizing and places to go and ride

Holiday Saved, they fixed my partners bike within hours! (Just in time as the shop was closed on the Sunday and Monday)
Every other shop nearby didn’t have time for us.
Stocked up on all of the bike essentials, lots in store.
Thanks to the team A LOT. Enjoy a photo of Jack very happy with fixed bike.

Sometimes bike shops can be slightly scary places. This shop has some daunting machines in the window (great electric mountain bikes and the sort you'd want if you were going down the Nevis Range) and I was concerned that they would laugh at me going in to hire a few hardtail mountain bikes for a family day out. Nothing could be further from the truth. The staff were very friendly and able to suggest some routes that suited us. They talked us through every twist and turn and clearly wanted us to have a great day out. The bikes were well-maintained and seats were quickly adjusted to ensure they fitted. Armed with locks, spare tyres and a tool roll we were ready. Had a great time cycling along the coast then out to the Caledonian Canal on their 'Castle, Canal and Coffee' route.

Needed a repair to my sons bike urgently to ensure we could continue with our holiday plans. Phoned Off Beat Bikes who answered quickly and were able to help us out as soon as we arrived. Great service from Calum who was very knowledgeable and helpful. Great value repair too. Very tempted by the amazing range of bikes for sale so we could be back soon!

Im so extremely happy that I chose to hire My bike at OBB! Even though I arrived just before closure they took time to give me advice about roadbike tours. I came back next morning and they helped me with everything, fixing a bike, adjusting it for My size, made sure I could use My bike shoes ect. Also gave me advice of where to eat during My way. Most of all they Did it with a smile! Ive hired roadbikes in other places too but I belive this was the most service minded staff Ive met. And the tour they suggested was completely perfect for me!
It was Easy to find them, the purple shop in the center along the high street, 5 min walk from the trainstation. Very good opening hours!!! Offering everything from mountain bikes to roadbikes. A good price when Im thinking of what a great day and experience I got, it was almost the same price as other bike shops, slightly cheaper, around 30p full day. Thank you for everything!

The day on the bike was my highlight in Scotland. The team was very helpful in describing a great route designed just for old people and what we saw was marvelous. I got an electric bike that made the trip even nicer, This was a great pick for us.

I cannot speak highly enough about the service offered by Off Beat Bikes:

Whilst in Scotland I did 3 days bike packing on WWW, cycling from Fort William to Tarbet on Loch Lomond. Popped in to OBB and was met with:

- Super friendly staff
- Provided with a NEW fat tyre Whyte bike which was perfect for the job
- for bonus was kitted out with NEW bike packing gear and excellent advice
- excellent value for money!

Strongly urge anyone half interested in cycling to go in and meet this terrific crew.

Many thanks,

Peter Tuck Australia

Arrived in Fort William (from Inverness) with bike problem last Friday just as shops were closing. Off Beat Bikes made no fuss in checking it out and had it all fixed professionally and economically for me to collect next morning. A superb bike shop in every way which deserves continued success. Thank you!
