Where are you?
We’re a bike shop very near Kentish Town West station - and an easy walk (or cycle) from Tufnell Park, Kentish Town and Camden Town tube stations.
Do you sell bikes?
We’re a bike workshop - repairing bikes is our specialty. We sell parts and accessories in our shop, and the only complete bikes we sell are Frog Bikes for children. If you're older than 12, tell us what kind of thing you’re after while you’re in for a repair and we’re happy to point you in the direction of our favourite bike shops. We also sell the excellent Emu Electric Bikes.
Do you service hub gears?
Yes! We don’t shy away from what some bike shops think of as complicated repairs. We service hub gears (including Sturmey Archer, Shimano Nexus, Alfine and Rohloff) - great for Dutch bikes or Bromptons.
Do you service Bromptons?
Yes - we are happy to service all models of Brompton.
Which parts do you stock?
We sell Kryptonite locks, Schwalbe tyres, Shimano, Sram, Campagnolo etc. We also sell lights, racks, pedals, brake pads, bar tape and handlebar grips...and pretty much everything else you’d expect. If we don’t have something in stock, we can order it in for you.
How long will it take to service my bike?
If you think your bike needs a lot of work, it’s best to call in advance to book in a service in advance. Drop your bike off in the morning and we’ll have it back with you at the end of the day. Or if we think it’ll take longer and we need to keep it overnight, we’ll lend you a bike so that you’re not at the mercy of London transport!
How much will my repair cost?
How long is a piece of string? We won’t do work on your bike that we think is unnecessary - so we’ll do a bicycle health check before we recommend a service. As for repairs, we will check the bike over and call you with a quote before we do any work so don't worry about unexpected costs!
How do I know what you’re doing to my bike?
We’re happy to run through what we’re doing for your repair with you in detail - and explain any technical language.
