My Dad wants to buy a bike, he lives in Brentwood but work in Chelmsford. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good local bike shop?
Hi Jack, what type of bike is he looking for and at what budget? At the bottom of brentwood high st there's Bike Trax. They do some really nice bikes, everything from carbon racers to full sus MTBs. They're honest and have always sorted me out with little spares etc for nothing and give good advice.
Chelmer Cycles are a great shop in Chelmsford, great independant with top service.
Another vote for Chelmer Cycles - although for repairs/servicing track down Spokes - Silky does a great job at very reasonable prices.
If your in Brentwood, there is a wicked little bike shop on Kings Road. He specialises in old road bikes and is run by one guy. Really reasonable prices and really friendly.
Where abouts? I never knew there was one there
Going towards the Station, it's on the left just after the parade of shops/restaurants on the right finishes. Next to a fancy dress shop I think.
Looks cool but can't quite figure out the hours of the shop, seems a bit sporadic. Probably busy riding his bike!
Another vote for Chelmer Cycles. Good guys and great servicing. Have used them for some quality wheel rebuilds.
