  • Maybe the Brown Bomber was involved in an advert for Dayton Cycles?

    Good detective work chap. Plus on the flickr stream I note Rob has a cat called Cassius, methinks a boxing and cycling enthusiast - it just gets better! :D

  • I used to have a cat called Cassius. I hate boxing though.

    Although you didn't also have a picture of Joe Louis on your website. Boxing is a great sport IMHO :)

  • When I get the money, this is the shop I'm going to go to first.. Really really nice Peugeot tourer in my size :S

  • Looks like a nice mom n pop type shop. Gon' chiggidout at some point.

  • why must these bikes torment me!

  • I live just above Rob, and can only recommend him highly. He's a top bloke and has helped me out loads of times with my bike.

  • Anyone been to this refurb/vintage only bike shop in stoke newington - any good?

    Its off blackstock road, along from the weird sylvanian families shop.

  • Lots of frame on that site but no prices listed.

  • repost

  • Yes, been there, great bloke, but as tika said, repost--use the search.

  • Lovely, lovely man... He deserves our trade... And a repost...

  • ... and bumping old threads by using the search. :D

  • If you search 'sargent' as a title thread it turns up nothing

    If you search 'sargent' as a post it turns up "my neighbour is a prostitute" amongst other threads

    The search function around here is pretty crude

    Lovely shop btw

  • I found nothing on a search for sargeant and co, i also did not know this place existed until i saw this thread and it looks like a cool shop. Will try give it a visit.

    I have not been on the forum very long, neither has HOTPLATE going by the number of posts he/she has put up. Tika and Oliver Schlik are obviously veterans so if they have seen something before they should keep there 'repost' posts to themselves and allow the rest of us to use the forum to find out new stuff and ask questions. If having new blood on the forum offends the old timers sensibilities then i'm sorry, instead of a nursery for new members maybe we should all be made to sign up to a compulsory LFGSS Identity Card whereby we have to show reciepts for the first bike we owned to prove we have been riding for over 5 years, also total mileage ridden fixed, photocopies of spoke cards, total skid length completed and why not put our DNA profile on as well.

    Morning rant over and long may the forum continue to be a fine resource for ALL who use her.

  • Searching for Sargent (not titles but posts) only brings up one page of search results, and this is the thread you're looking for:

    http://www.londonfgss.com/thread9641.htm­l

    This doesn't have 'Sargent' in the title because when it was started, the shop wasn't called 'Sargent & co.' yet.

    The original thread was here:

    http://www.londonfgss.com/thread7633.htm­l

    That thread doesn't come up because it only has the web-site address in it, and because Rob initially couldn't decide on a name for the shop. But it's linked to from the previous one, which isn't very long.

    Sorry if it comes across as unwelcoming, but it is a general experience of using the forum that proliferation of duplicate, triplicate, etc. threads creates confusion and a lot of additional work. That's why it's usually good policy to use the search, and if it doesn't throw up the result you want, to ask in an existing related thread whether a thread already exists before starting a new one. GA2G also keeps good lists of just about everything, so the 'definitive list of lists' thread is a good starting-point.

    Hope this helps!

  • For the record, i did in fact search titles before posting this but didn't find 'owt.

  • We'll let you off off...this time ;-)

    I live 30 secs away from Sargent, wicked place. Lovely cat too. A bike workshop isn't a bike workshop without a cat.

    Welcome to the forum. Hope you can relax on the 'newb' v oldies vibes. It's really not as important as you might feel from your current perspective, speaking from my own recollections of 'arriving' here compared to the reality of it in the following months. You are welcome to use the place as yuou see fit, start new in jokes, start your own groups and do what you want to do here.

    Have fun.

  • Calm down, Omar

  • opening times? or is it not that kind of shop...
    cheers

  • I asked for the use of his lockring spanner there recently, and because he couldn't be bothered (he was sat cleaning some wheels), he said it would be a tenner. I asked if he was joking. He said no. Very polite about it he was, but so I understood that he wanted me to get lost.I won't be going there again. In contrast, BLB changed and fitted my new cog, free of charge, and wouldn't accept money. Funny the different experiences we all have at these shops.

  • It's not that kind of shop - although Rob tends to be open most days, times/days may vary - try calling ahead (probably best not too early). Contact details on the website.

    haha failed the hipster tenner test i see.
    i also live 30secs away from rob, genuinely nice man, always free and easy with the tools/cider if you catch him in the right mood.
    Cannot recommend him enough, but yeah, opening times are sporadic(but most days at least for a few hours). I've often tried to pay rob and him not accept money, maybe you were being obnoxious?
    Go there and buy stuff.
