A Different Gear are an independent, not for profit, community-owned bike shop and workshop based in Heeley. They sell new bikes and accessories with a focus on adventure, utility and cargo.
As well as selling new bikes and accessories they also take in donated bikes, strip them down and refurbish them. They are then resold for a fraction of the price of a new bike. Prices in the shop are affordable, with decent adult bikes starting at £120. There's usually a good selection for kids too, meaning you can kit out the whole family.
ADG also shares its passion and expertise for bikes through training sessions, cycling events, a rentable DIY repair space, a second-hand parts library and an e-cargo bike hire scheme. They also provide bike servicing and repairs.
