Bikeshop gone bust

Hi

My LBS on the UK south coast went bust a few weeks ago, owing me 99 in credit for parts they didn't have in stock when I bought my Dahon Mu P8 through the CycleScheme purchase option. I can probably kiss goodbye to my 99, but it's a real shame because they were a very good Dahon dealer and apparently sold loads of folders from their shop and via their website, so it's surprising they went under.
Anyway, can anyone recommend a good Dahon dealership in the Brighton/Sussex area in the UK? Please don't say Evans Cycles - I found their Brighton branch to be particularly poor when I was shopping for my Mu.

Cheers

Johno

Which LBS was this?

Electric Bikes in Lancing are a big Dahon dealer (I hope it wasn't them).

Otherwise Southwater Cycles near Horsham are good and will generally match internet prices.

Best mail order service I've had was CH White & Son.

My LBS went out of business after I bought two bikes with free lifetime tuneups.
