A cheap computer repair shop in Liverpool has been inundated with messages of support from fans after the repair of their own bike computer was spotted on sale on eBay.
The shop in the town of Blackpool, north-west England, has been running a charity bike repair scheme called The Bike Fix since 2011.
The charity runs bikes in the shop, which is run by a team of volunteers, with the goal of making bikes in good condition and to encourage people to donate to their causes.
The repair service is open to anyone in the UK who is unable to afford a new bike or has lost their bike.
It runs two days a week from 9am to 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays, with staff on hand to help.
The team’s bikes have also been donated to local charities, including the British Red Cross, the Scottish National Health Service and the National Lottery Fund.
The Bike Repair team were inspired by a campaign by the charity BikeFix, which gives bikes to local charity groups and encourages them to put them back in the shops.
The idea was to get more people involved and to make bikes in excellent condition, and to get bikes out of the shop more quickly, said Paul O’Connell, who runs the shop.
Mr O’Donnell said he saw a need for a bike repair shop because his own bicycle had worn out on several occasions.
He said he has used a spare bike for many years and it was in good shape, but had been on wheels for almost 20 years.
He had used it for several charity rides before this one and had been told that he could not afford the replacement parts to fix it, he said.
“I had a couple of bikes that were in great shape, and they’d just been thrown out because they were too big for my own use, but the idea of helping someone else get a bike fixed was really nice to think about.” “
Mr O ‘s bike was repaired and the team have donated it to the British National Health Services. “

Mr Smith said he had never had a problem with his own bike and had had a number of bikes repaired before.
“This one has been a pleasure to fix,” he said, adding that he is very happy with the results.
“It is a bit of a mystery why the repair service in Blackpool is doing this, but it’s a wonderful way to help local charities.”
A team of three volunteers has repaired bikes for a charity, and have donated a spare to a local charity, the Bike Fix team.
The service has also been used by a charity group, BikeFix UK, who are using their bikes to raise money for the charity.
