Bike repair shop that won't break the bank

Hey all,


I could use a little help on my bike (have a flat tire and, I think some gear issues) and was hoping for some recommendations of bike shops in the Cornavin area that could help me out without being super expensive.  Any place with English speakers is a definite plus!


Thanks!

In Geneva, the only bike shop one should even consider going to for repairs of the sort you need is Péclôt 13.


They have 3 locations; the one you'll want to go to is in the neighborhood just north of Geneva's main station, les grottes. They speak English. 


As far as I know, all other bike shops, perhaps in the entire country, strive to cater exclusively to a class of clientele ready to invest vast sums of chf in the latest in cutting-edge cycling innovation, untroubled by any potential bank-breakage this might entail.

Also try Genev'Roule, right at the back of Cornavin station. I think technically they only repair their own rental bikes, but if you have a minor problem and you smile nicely...

Those guys at peclot 13 are friendly but on 2 occassions that I took my bike there it came back with some other small problems.


I found a guy offereing a mobile service and very cheap too!


He's called Brian and he speaks English, he can come to your home or work place. He was great, very friendly and not expensive, I really recomend him.


You can reach him here


0764937970 WhatsApp  or  BT0764937970@gmail.com


 


Most other bike shops In Geneva charge about 70- an hour

1. On Youtube you can find everything for free.


2. If not, my friend can do it as well cheaper than Peclot I believe.
