just to get you started, Lazzaretti is a nice shop, fairly central (near piazza Fiume), they have cipollini, colnago, pinarello, bianchi, passoni, cannondale....

will be visiting them over xmas...haven't lived in rome since a teenager so am sure there are plenty of others, but this was a classic...

price-wise i should think you can do better, but it should have a decent amount of top end stuff

english version of the ww

http://www.ciclilazzaretti.com/eng/

should also mention that this shop has been there since 1916!

Use the :search: ... this has come up several times before. Here is my response from 2009... these shops are all still around. The original thread. I second Lazzaretti as the most traditional shop in town, with quite a good selection. Location friendly and all that...

Here is a map with the great majority of the bike shops in Rome: http://www.slowbike.info/assistenza%20bici.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Here is what I suggest:

1. Cicli Lazzaretti - http://www.ciclilazzaretti.it; - is probably the best known shop in central Rome (good if you are on a short leash - will the significant other let you hang out at bike shops during your visit to the eternal city?). The website is basic, the shop is top notch.

2. Cicli Liberati - http://www.cicliliberati.it - on par with Lazzaretti in terms of 'history' here in Rome. A good shop, more 'local' than Lazzaretti.

3. Pro Bike - http://www.pro-bike.it/splash.asp - nice shop, a bit pricey, but much more of a MTB than road shop.

4. Biker Zone - no website - via Allumiere, 21 Tel. 06 7826440 - a good shop with very, very, very good prices. But you need to know what you are looking for (the owner does not suffer fools lightly and rides his road bike religiously three hours every day on his lunch break) and the choice is a bit limited (whatever is available in the shop is well priced though).

5. Cicli Petta - http://www.cicli.it - a very well stocked shop outside of Rome, in the seaside neighborhood of Ostia Lido. Disclaimer: my ex-team and where I spend lots of cash. Not the cheapest, but very well stocked with a fantastic selection in terms of components, clothing, and accessories. Big Colnago and Pinarello dealer.

PM me if you need more info.

Second disclaimer: I am in no way associated with any of these shops (although I probably should have become a partner with Petta given the cash I have spent there :mrgreen: ).

Good to hear. Let us know whether you are allowed to visit any shops and if you do end up supporting the local economy with some purchases!
