I rented an electric bike to tour St Andrews while my husband played golf. They delivered it to my hotel And picked it up later that evening. Dawn and Jack were friendly and helpful. The Gazelle bike was excellent. It is the best way to spend a day it St Andrews and the most fun you can have on 2 wheels! I will definitely rent again the next time I visit.

Well I was just about to go on a group ride, when I realised that when I replaced my chain I had threaded it between my jockey wheels wrong. It was still rideable but made a very annoying noise. The man was very helpful and quickly fixed the problem, he also indexed my gears to perfection. I was on time and didn't miss the ride.

Halfords

3, 14 Kingsway W, Dundee DD3 8RX, UK – 01382 834620

Usually very good service - often you can get jobs done straight away - but the department seems to be kept on minimum staffing so you may have to wait some time for attention (or for the job to be completed, which is fair enough). The cycle people are very helpful, friendly and appear very knowledgeable. Only problem is the lift, which is a nightmare when you've got a large bike or whatever - and probably don't bother with Slime treatment for your tyres - it didn't work for me.

Despite several negative reviews, we had a very pleasing experience when we went to collect our bike. On the other hand, we were speaking only to the bike servicing staff and they were extremely nice and helpful.

Second Cycles

44 W Henderson's Wynd, Dundee DD1 5BT, UK – 01382 690317

Perfect and rapid service going above and beyond the call of duty. Excellent value for money. Had a bike sent up in a box, they build it with very fast turn around and was indexed perfectly. Better still, bike actually arrived without saddle and pedals (a fault of the sender) and these guys subbed be a spare to keep me on the road while we waited for the originals to be sent up at no extra cost. By far the best service in Dundee.

The guy is a solid mechanic and brings bike up to a good standard, and sells them for a reasonable price I bought and old road bike off him and the brakes were not as sharp as I like them. I was not within the 28 resale date/free check and he fixed the breaks for me. I would highly recommend this shop to students above other bike shops and the high scheme on campus!
