Cycle Republic strengthens partnership with Shimano

Cycle Republic has opened two new Shimano service centres in London, at the retailer’s flagship shop in Fenchurch Street and its store in Canary Wharf.

The workshops will offer customers a unique servicing and repair experience managed by certified and trained colleagues. All centres provide same-day servicing and repairs, and are fully equipped with an enhanced range of Shimano components and parts including pedals, group sets and brakes.

Last year Cycle Republic opened its 21st new shop in Gateshead, located directly opposite the intu Metrocentre. Within the 5,500 square feet retail space, the retailer enhanced its workshop proposition by partnering with Shimano to open the first dedicated Shimano service centre. 

“After the successful opening of our first service centre in Gateshead, I am delighted to be working with Shimano once again,” said Peter Kimberley, Cycle Republic managing director. “The workshop is the heartbeat of our shops for our customers, colleagues are really excited with the opportunity to provide our London customers with a competitively priced and unparalleled service experience.”

Shimano UK brand manager Geoff Giddings added: “We are delighted to work with Cycle Republic on this partnership, they have embraced our vision for the Shimano Service Centre in Gateshead, and it is fantastic to be extending the opening of an additional two centres across their London shops.”
