Re: Coast To Coast & The Best LBS?

My inlaws live over in Stanhope and has the alternative rout up Crawleyside on the CTC, I have used North Pennine Cycles in the past and the service has always been great, and the cost is very reasonable for the work he has done on my bikes over the last couple of years.
