Anyone know anything about Nip-Nip? Seem to be expanding very well.
Bike fit James from the francis cade videos has left sigma sports and taken over bicycle Richmond.
Anyone been to it yet?
Appears to marketing it towards the top end.
Technically not a new shop tho.
Does anyone know which day Micycle N4 are open late? Their website seems to have been temporarily taken over by a forestry service
In fact, does anyone use their workshop membership, and what do you think of it?
Accessing via desktop takes me to the forestry site, but mobile takes me to their regular website. Copy and paste:
8 Ferme Park Road London N4 4ED Tel:0208 347 9180
Mon 8:30 - 15:30 / Tue, Thur & Fri 11.30 - 18.30 / Sat - 10:00 - 17:00 /
Wed & Sunday - Closed
Thank you - mobile redirects for me.
I thought they had an evening they were open to 7:30 or so
Being open later in the day works very well for us in Glasgow, 11am till 7pm four days a week and 11 till 5pm on a Sunday.
That 6 till 7 is my busiest hour most days as I'm the only independent open past 5 ish. Surprised more London shops arent like that.
We open at 8.30 which means people can drop their bikes in on their way to work and we can have them done by 6. We have thought of staying open til 7 but that’s a long day and we just can’t be arsed.
Any London bike shop where I could go in and buy a few m4 bolts and nuts easily?
Any Halfords near you for random nuts/bolt.
Condor on Greys Inn road have a good range of small fixings in the shop too.
Nice chap in Condor pointed me to Clerkenwell Screws yesterday. Can't get there before 5 though.
Anything similar close by?
You can definitely get some nuts and bolts at the SDM Leyland in Holborn, but they won't be 'bike' bolts (i.e. won't have an allen key fitting). Or most bike shops would have some. Round there you have a Cycle Surgery and A Cycle Republic and an Evans (or used to).
Are there any bike shop owners on here? I have a few questions if anyone would be willing for a chat?
Went past this today:
Stopped in for a chat. They have worked on some of my stuff in a previous life. They are good lads and deserve to do well.
Who would have thought that South East London would see a renaissance of good bike shops?
This is good to know! Spotted it the other day but haven't had time to pop in yet!
Just picked my bike up after a service including truing of rear wheel.
Great vibe in the shop. Solid dudes with good advice previously from London Velo in Deptford. I feel as though I'm cheating on my other bike shops though :) but it's just soooo close to home.
That cheating feeling is weird isn’t it?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
