What are the best / most reliable bike shops to recommend ? For road bikes in general, no model in particular.

I used to go to Racewerks, but then my favourite uncle just retired :( Don't know who else I can trust, everyone tells me that bike shops confirm will try to cheat female riders.. 

Also, is it normal to just walk up and and approach any person in the bike shop for help when you bring your bike there for servicing?

I always just went straight to my uncle. But after he retired, like nobody else in the shop seemed friendly and approachable. Very awkward to ask any person standing around for help, dk if it's normal 😅

@S651hbf thnx for sharing, i find that it is normal to be taken for a ride but bike shops when u r just starting out.. u have to visit a few until you find one that u r comfortable with... everyone ha

I spoiled my gearshift pedal when I knocked into a curb and just went to the first motorshop I could find at Bukit Merah area,  I changed my engine oil, deformed gearshift pedal,  battery and seat cover for I think 100+ ( not more than 150), I subsequently changed a normal duty chain to a heavy-duty chain but the price I paid for comparing to shopee was overpriced (by 100% more). Honestly not trying to be a cynic but I always think these shops will makan u if they think u new, it's the nature of wanting to earn profits easily, best to learn yourself and hands on abit.

Sorry I didn't give u an answer, only way is to try different shop for the same product and compare price, and the uncle might be friendly but if he makan u without knowing u won't ever know so basically them being nice doesn't mean they will give good price n all

the problem is when u change new bike.. and your bike shop is not familiar with that particular model.. then u have to start the search all over again.........

bikeworks specialise in race bikes.. waste garage specialises in vespa, so on and so forth.........
