The staff is very professional and they always provide a great service, i keep coming back. Have been to Cycle surgery before where they adjusted breaks, they started rubbing the next day! So I went to On Your Bike and they readjusted them and didnt ask to pay. Was really impressed. Would not service or fix my bikes anywhere else. Five stars.

Great bunch of people. Very knowledgable and helpful - the services they offer are priced the best I've come across in Birmingham. Thanks a lot.

Cycle Surgery

14 The Priory Queensway, Birmingham B4 6BS, UK – 0121 236 8280

Booked a back on the road service for my Retro GT zaskar race today and got new chain, brakes and good advice from Shaun in the cycle surgery all for a good price. The long opening hours also make it perfect for people working to pick bikes up at a time convenient to suit. Will be using them again for my Cube soon. Thanks

Will was really helpful with my (self-made) mechanical issue. Couldn't have asked for more.

Cycle Hire

Cycle Republic

I do hope management read this as the team at Cycle Republic Birmingham were outstanding and an absolute joy to deal with! Big shout out to Duty manager Richard who was knowledgeable, kind, polite and he and also Luke who opened up late and stayed over an hour extra!!!! just so I could collect my beloved new hybrid. I was not rushed and felt really at ease with these very experienced bike people! Its worth battling through the city centre and its now my go to place. I cannot thank them enough after having a very poor experience with another major bike retailer they have come to my rescue! Perfect service could not have been any better and I will be telling EVERYONE about it! Richard also rocks a fantastic beard! I hope this review is not in vain and they get the accolade they deserve!

Huge thank you to the guys at Cycle Republic Birmingham. After a disastrous commute forgetting my helmet on the ride in this morning, they've lent me a beautiful one for my commute going home in the dark tonight. Thank you guys for ensuring I get home safely tonight; really appreciate it!!!

Cycle Chain

Birmingham B16 8DW, UK – 07986 727832

They have two locations, one next to the Sealife, and the other one indicated here on the map. You should definetly call before visiting the shop because they may be one or the other location. Otherwise they do have a good selection of bikes. Bought one of their cheapest (around £60) and it has served me well for my everyday commute during 3 months (then I left B'ham, the bike is still fine!). If they don't have what you need in stock, they may look at the ones not repaired yet and get it fixed for you in a week or so. You can also purchase a lock at the store if you need one.

Never open just went there and it's not open 9 - 5 lies
