I'm on my way to London in a couple of weeks, and was wondering if anybody here could recommend a good local bike shop in London. I thought I'd take a look at some panniers, as selection of front panniers seems to be somewhat limited where I live.
Addresses or web links would be greatly appreciated.
To err is human. To moo is bovine.
Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
There are 3 bikeshops near to the centre which are really worth a visit.
Bikefix http://www.bikefix.co.uk/ (Lambs Conduit St)
and Brixton Cycles http://www.brixtoncycles.co.uk/
are very good for utility cycles.
Evans (www.evanscycles.com)is good for touring kit (Waterloo branch).
Condor Cycles is more race-oriented but make lovely light-touring bikes and have a superb wheelbuilder
Also join the London Cycling Campagn for useful tips, maps, workshop access and discounts.
There arent any other bike shops I could recomend.
