Tyre fitters in Exeter / Devon
« on: November 07, 2020, 11:51:42 AM »
Can anyone recommend a bike tyre fitters in the Exeter area? My normal go-to Protyre's machine is bust so they can't fit for the next month or so.

When needed, I take mine to the same place as I get my car tyres done. Providing they are set up to handle motorcycle wheels, there shouldn't be a problem.

Have you tried Bridge? They do a 'price match' to other local suppliers/fitters which is advertised on their website, although I have found that they need to be reminded of it at the time of booking. I have never found them able to match Protyre but they will reduce their initial quote if confronted with the Protyre price and you will get 5% on your loyalty card if you have one. I suppose it depends on how urgently the new tyre is needed.

So, in the end I did some work on Google and found Brian at Scoot 'n' Commute in Exeter. His price fully fitted on the bike was less than Bridge or ProTyre supply-only.

Plus he came with his van and collected/dropped off at my home. Couldn't have been easier, and a sensible price (270 Anakee Adventures front and rear)

With definitely call him first next time.
