We don’t recommend one shop over another as they all have different strengths. All we will say is support your LBS as much as you can or one day it may not be there – we’ve recently lost Edinburgh Bike Co-op as one example. If we’ve missed a shop out let us know – leave a comment.
Hidden away in Hope, 18 Bikes has a wide range of stock and can be handy if you develop a problem whilst out riding in the Hope Valley. Mostly hourly trains on the Hope Valley line will get you and your bike there and back.

AE (Albert) Butterworth’s is on Abbeydale road so don’t get confused with the two. This is a very traditional cycle shop, and supposedly has the best prices in town so doesn’t give any extra discount. If you are dropping your bike off, there is a bus stop over the road which will take you back into town.Tel: 0114 255 2165
Tony Butterworths is on Catchbar lane in Hillsborough, (just behind the football ground). Known to many as just “Butties” this shop used to specialise in racing cycles, but is now an all round cycle shop with a slight bias toward racing cycles still. They’ll never let you down if you need an emergency repair and have even been known to help you get back on the road when you haven’t got any money.Tony retired some years ago and spends most of his time in Spain.

Cycles in Motion
Cycles in Motion started as a mobile bicycle repair service, which they are still doing. However they also have a workshop where they can undertake larger projects such as, frame brazing (disk mounts, pannier rack mounts new cable routing, etc), Ski bike builds, full restoration of classic steads and wheel builds.
Starting this spring they’re also offering a range of guided mountain bike rides for every ability and in a range of locations from round the Peak District to the Scottish Highlands.
There’s plenty more info on the website http://www.cyclesinmotion.co.uk
If you ever want to come down and have a chat please feel free the kettle is all ways on.
Decathlon superstore is close to Sheffield Hallam University on Eyre St. They sell complete bikes (some of which are their own brand) and spares (with a continental bias). They also do repairs and fit spares, although the workshop is on the opposite side of the shop to the bike area. They sell low price spares and accessories and you tend to get what you pay for.

F. W. Evans
A well-known chain with a wide range of stock including Bromptons and maintenance service. On Queens Road.
Halfords is a little way past JE James and is a large motor car accessory warehouse. It has a reasonably large cycle section that can throw up some component bargains. Halfords can be handy if you suddenly need a part at 7.30pm in the evening as it has longer opening hours than most specialist bike shops. Health note – Halfords sell equipment that allows motorists to speed without being caught. If this annoys you then maybe you should avoid this shop. Tel: 0114 2551096
JE James is near the city centre going out on Bramall Lane , close to the Sheffield United Football Ground, One half of this shop is leisure cycles and the other part specialises in expensive mountain bikes and road bikes. Tel: 01142 550557. They also have branches in Chesterfield and Rotherham.
Langsett Cycles is on Infirmary road and is reasonably close to the University of Sheffield. They are on the Supertram route but unfortunately at this moment you can’t take bikes on the Supertram, although you can drop your bike off for repairs and take the tram back into town.Tel: 0114 234 8191

Other Shops with Bike Spares
Note Coles (John Lewis) no longer do bike spares and tools in their sports dept. If you are stuck in town and need some parts try Argos, Wilkinsons or Sheffield University Students Union shop. All of these may stock bike locks, tubes, repair kits and lights. Sometimes you can get bike spares at supermarkets such as Netto, Tescos and LIDL. LIDL and Aldi have themed ‘weeks’ announced in advance on their websites, some of which include a selection of cycling accessories; there can be some real bargains, but be warned that some people come in early on the first day of the sale to hoover up all of the decent stock to sell on eBay :-(Sainsburys Archer Road had some bike spares the last time we were in)
Cycle Promotions sell remaindered and new bike bits and occasionally visit Sheffield, setting up shop at Concord Park – frequently just after New Year.
Wortley cycles operate a Cycle Hire and Repair business in Wortley, S35 7DB.
