Bicycle repair shops across the world are closing their doors in a desperate bid to save their business from being swallowed by the mountain biking craze.
The mountain bike industry is on the verge of extinction, with many shops either shutting down or having to make drastic cuts to their business in order to stay afloat.
But while there are plenty of alternatives to riding your bike on the mountains, none offer the same level of reliability and dependability as bicycle repair shops.

They’ve done this by reducing the number of components they use, and switching to cheaper materials.
However, this has led to some bikes becoming less reliable over time.
“It is really important that people realise that if they are going to buy a new bike that they should be doing it for a few years,” said Peter Williams, head of product marketing at Bicycle Repair UK.
It’s important to remember that every bike we buy is going to have a limited life.
When we buy a bike, we’re buying it for the purpose of having it for years and years and maybe decades to come.
If you’re buying a new bicycle, you should be investing in it and you should also be doing the work to make it a better bike for many years to come, Williams added.
Bike shops have had to look at other options to keep their business alive, including investing in bike-specific bike parts, such as stem brakes.
Many of the manufacturers that manufacture the parts for bikes also sell them to repair shops to make money.
A new hub is sold to a shop, where a new set of wheels are made and then passed on to a new shop that sells them to a customer, who then gets to keep them.
Some shops also invest in specialist bicycle repair centres, where they offer a range of services including fitting and fixing the bikes, repair, maintenance and maintenance training.
In the past, some shops have used the money they make from these repairs to buy equipment and services such as bikes to repair their bikes.
Now, with the bikes being more expensive than ever, many of these shops are closing down.
Peter Williams says: “People are spending more and more money on bikes and that means they are buying more and less.”
Bicycle repair shops are the backbone of the mountain bicycling industry, and this is why they are the number one industry in the country, according to the British Cyclists’ Association.
You can’t fix a bike if you don’t own it.
I think the biggest concern that people have is that they don’t have the equipment that they need to fix their bikes and I think they would be better off buying a bike and doing it themselves, Peter Williams says.
One way they can do this is by buying bikes from other bike shops, or buying used bikes that are in great condition.
This gives them a much better idea of what they’re going to get and they can decide whether they want to buy the bike that is in good condition or a brand new bike.
We need to make sure that we do a better job of ensuring that all our customers are getting the best deal possible, Peter says.
The best way to keep your bike reliable is to buy it from a shop that has good servicing, Peter agrees.
Buying from a reputable shop means you get a reliable bike for a reasonable price, and it’s worth getting the latest parts to replace broken ones.
And if you’re looking to buy your own bike, the best advice is to get an experienced mechanic.
Peter says that most mechanics are more than happy to help you get your bike fixed, and can even give you advice on what you need to do to make your bike better.
Get advice on fixing your bike from a mechanic who has experience repairing mountain bikes, Peter explains.
Getting a mechanic to repair your bike is the best way of getting a reliable, affordable and reliable bike, says Peter.
