New Service Centre Opening in Sheffield City Centre

Sheffield currently does not have a bicycle repair shop in the centre of town, but that is all about to change with the opening of Bike Rehab on the 19th May, 2012.


Mechanic and entrepreneur Alex Gunn transformed the vacant unit on Wellington St, one minute walk from Devonshire Green skatepark, into a fully equipped workshop and bicycle storage unit within a week. With work now complete he is ready to welcome customers. In addition to repairs and servicing Bike Rehab will offer a range of small and useful parts for all types of bikes from commuter and road bikes to mountain bikes and BMX bikes. There is also bicycle storage available for people visiting Sheffield City Centre who want to ensure that their bike is safe and secure. While customers wait for the finishing tweaks to their steed they can sit back, relax and enjoy a mug of tea or coffee. Can’t make it into town? Not a problem, Bike Rehab offers a unique collection and delivery service too.


Alex Gunn, a Sheffield graduate, knows what he’s doing when it comes to bikes. He has ridden dirt jumps, cross country and downhill for most of his life and has been a mechanic for eight. Alex has fixed bikes for a number of shops from as far afield as Whistler to the Lake District. He has firm roots in Sheffield and has had the ambition of opening a repair shop with a good vibe for a long time.


Expect to be welcomed with music or a bike video playing in the background. You won’t find a repair centre as cool as this.


Bike Rehab is opening tomorrow, Saturday the 19th of May, so drop by and say hello. There are a number of special offers available during the opening week, such as 25% off all repairs and free bicycle storage, so there isn’t a better time to say hello and get your bike running smoothly again.
