Anyone know a good bicycle repair shop

Lakshan SJ
By Lakshan SJ

I have a mountain bike that makes a scrreeeching noise when I apply the brakes. Local bike shops only know to change and fix things. I dont think they know much about geared mountain bikes. I had to tell him more than five times to fix it properly and he still charged me extra for his mistake.

Please let me know where do you my fellow cyclist go to repair/maintain your bikes.

britexpat - You're right. I totally forgot to mention i have a bike with disk brakes

It all depends on the type of brake .. The screeching is usually caused by the rubber or pad not biting properly on the rim or disc. You should be able to tell by the wear. It probably just needs adjusting

Try spraying the gears with WD-40 and see if this works out.

Just put some oil on the gears and tighten the brakes
