Bike shops are meant to serve local cyclists.
It was more evident than ever during the pandemic, when they were deemed and essential service during the lockdown.
In Sheffield there's on average just 1 local bike shop (lbs) for about 50,000 people, so complaints about lack of parts availability and long queues for service and repairs are normal.
It is therefor worrying that local bike shops are increasingly under threat and prior to lockdown many were closing down, which is a real problem for families who are looking for reliable and affordable options.
