Local bike shop campag specialist in S.Gloucestershire/ Cotswolds/ Bath/ Bristol
Hi I'm trying to find a LBS in the Cotswolds/South Glos/Bath/Bristol area that can cope with servicing my campagnolo equipped Bianchi. I've tried several bike shops and thus far none of them have done a great job. The trouble seems to be primarily with indexing the gears and adjusting the brakes as the bike inevitably comes back suffering from poor gear changes and, occasionally, with the brakes touching the rims - basic stuff you'd think! So far I've tried:
Striking Bikes (Gloucester) (a Bianchi dealer!!!) - brakes touching the rim,
John's Bikes (Bath) - poorly indexed,
Ride 24/7 (Cirencester) - poorly indexed,
Independent Bike Works (cirencester) - poorly indexed and badly adjusted brakes (though they did an excellent job on my SRAM equipped TT bike).
It's not a bike problem as I can readjust the brakes and sort out the indexing myself and it's fine, which makes me wonder why I bother paying for a service! I'm off to Majorca in March and have to get my bottom bracket replaced before I go and I don't want to be worrying about the quality of the job. Can anyone recommend an LBS for whom Campag isn't a foreign language please? Ta!
