  • I'm going to be in Barcelona for a few days next week - does anyone have any bike shop recommendations?

    Thanks.

  • Not quite a bike shop but this is one of the best hat shops...

    SOMBRERERIA OBACH
    Calle 2 / 93 318 4094

  • +1 to the hats.
    The dude is awesome. Endless drawers of hat heaven.
    And cheap as churos too.

  • did some one mention hats :)

  • http://www.espaibici.com/

    There`s a pretty cool french guy behind the bar that rides fixed and most of the mechanics are on fixies as well.

    Fixed wheel culture is not that popular here in Barcelona (I`m here at the moment) and the few chaps into this here are very receptive!

    They sell Deda, Dura-Ace and Miche track stuff at this shop.

    Theres another secret place with vintage stuff as well, but Ill have to find it again...I forgot the address.
    There`s a picture of the window on my blog with a Zeus (Spanish answer to Campagnolo) equipped columbus track frame.

  • Price wise, is it worth picking stuff up over there rather than here?
    Or, as it's less common, does that work the other way 'round?

    BLB rules or less interest=less mark-up?

  • probike is quite good but mainly if you like MTB's (they have some road stuff)

  • Price wise it's a bit cheaper...

    Bag with 5 chainring bolts in London (taiwan) = 5.00GBP
    Bag with 5 chainring bolts in Barcelona (taiwan) = 4.00EUROS

    Ok, it's cheaper here, but there aren't that much variety as in Lunden.

    The complete vintage track bike was going for around 1000 EUROS

    Nice vintage road bike (campy + shimaNO bits, etc) for around 300 EUROS

    I got my MICHE cranks for around 89 euros at Spaibici last X-mas.

  • Oh yeah. It's MTBs paradise here....

  • Resurrecting a pretty old thread...but any further recommendations of good bike shops in Barcelona? Looking for shops aimed at the road bike and fixed/ss (obviously!) market rather than MTB, commuting etc. bikes.

    Also, does anyone know of any good markets or secondhand shops where I might find some decent gear for my first build?

    Ta.

  • Thanks for the suggestions but maybe I wasn't clear enough in my posting - I'm looking for bike shops or second hand stores and markets/fairs selling bike components and kit i.e. places where I can have a browse.

    I'm not looking to buy a complete bike. Nor do I want to deal with private sellers - I'm only there for a few days so can't be arsed arranging meets. Plus there's the whole language barrier issue - at least in a shop I can point at the things I'm interested in!

    Ta.

  • There is a fixed shop there, called: "my beautiful parking/fixed up" address: Calle Cervantes 5, Barrio Gotico ( Main rambla, left in Ferran, right in Avinyo, left in Cervantes and you´re there...

  • Anyone know of a Barcelona bike shop that will box and ship bikes to the states?

  • ^http://www.mybeautifulparking.com/

    talk to these guys, like nuknow said. they speak/write english and are really cool cats! tell'em João sent you

  • Anyone know if you can get bikes boxed at Barcelona airport?

  • It was pretty easy. I just picked up a bike box(paper) from the nearby shop and thats all. U just hop in on the plain and its arrive:) u can pick it up at the very right end of the package gates:)
    goodluck!

  • Went into my beautiful parking yesterday on hols from old blighty. Lovely shop, friendly staff. Lots and lots of lovely bikes over here and great cycle lanes etc....

  • Gonna try a fixed rental from MBP tomorrow!

  • Bump, any new info on barcelona? I'm there tomorrow.

  • Bump. I am currently cycling to Barcelona and will arrive on Wednesday. I need someone / somewhere to help me remove a rounded off seat clamp bolt so I can take my seatpost out to pack my bike to fly home. Can anyone suggest a shop that might be able to help? Anyone living there who can lend a hand?
    Thanks
    Joe

  • Just a quick bump for MBP. They pack up your bike in a box full of foam padding and bubblewrap for 30 euros which you can then stick on the metro a mear street crossing away!
