Juha - apologies ... I don't always make it into the European forum when I stop in and visit the lunacy of BF.
Shops I'd recommend include:
Cycling.lu (name of shop and website address) in Bertrange run by Tom Flammang who rode for Cofidis. More upscale cyclo-cross and road bikes with very good MTB (or VTT here in Lux) support. But Tom can get anything and the service is the best. Great shop for the bike -- he's now got a few guys wrenching bikes besides himself and they are all good for the stuff you can't DIY.
Vélo Sport Center on rue de Bonnevoie right in Lux city (south side of Pett. valley) very good inner city shop with some good bikes, great for spare parts, and ok selection of not so expensive clothes/accessories
Any of the Velocenter Goedherts -- one in Lux City near English speaking church in Gasperich, one on rue de ? Walferdange? heading up north -- best place for quick and somewhat inexpensive parts and supplies. Occasional good deal on bikes I'm told.
Cycles Arnold Kontz -- south end of Lux city past Gare ... not a walkable place -- good for bits and parts -- some good city bikes and reasonable prices
Trisport Niederanven SA -- located in Niederanven (further out of town) -- also the place for Triathlon gear
Bike World in Walferdange -- good selection of bike stuff, parts, and clothes (expensive though - clothes can be had cheaper in France at Decathalon or via websites from Germany).
Ostergaard's much further out in Mersch - haven't been myself but others really like this one
Almost all shops have a commuter/touring tilt as many bikes here are sold for folks to meander around the upper and lower city.
