    hi I’ll be traveling to london on saturday for a mates party in brixton, i’ll be traveling into Kings Cross and want to buy some brakes and a chainring, is the cycle surgery round the corner any good or perhaps the waterloo branch of evans?

    Why not try Brixton Cycles?

    If you’re going into Kings Cross then (although it won’t be of much help for MTB stuff – although haven’t been in since the recent extention an refit) a quick wander up Greys Inn Road to Condor Cycles would be fun – from there you can turn right and wander up High Holborn to the big cycle surgery

    Cycle Surgery in Camden?

    There are two Evan’s within 250 yards of each other in Waterloo (one opposite the station and one on The Cut) which are both pretty good shops to have a browse around. No experience of that Cycle surgery but they always seem to be good shops also.

    Would it not be cheaper to buy what you want online? Evans are not cheap even with the LCC 10% discount.

    I used to use Brixton cycles though, and can highly recommend them. It’s a co-op so they always give a good service. It’s also right next door to a skate park which is fun to watch and whizz around on early morning commutes like i used to. 🙂

    Thanks guys i think i shall be able to take in a few of these, it’s always odd looking on maps and thinking how often i’ve been just round the corner and not known these shops were there.

    MrTall well I’m traveling into london anyway and am prepared to pay a little extra, obviously I’m not gonna do myself out of any more than a pony.

    the Kings X Cycle Surgery on Pentonville Rd is geared (!) towards commuters
    the Condor shop is a bit of a treasure-trove

    The best Cycle Surgery in London in my opinion is the Strype Street one – more mtb-orientated. But it’s off your route, it’s near Liverpool St station. depends how much time you’ve got, I suppose.

    Is Condor open on a Saturday? Might be worth a call to check.

    You’ll be able to get what you need in the cyclesurgery kings cross.

    (CycleSurgery employee, so a bit biased – let me know what you need and I’ll check for you james dot robertson at cyclesurgery dot com)

    Dont forget Cyclesurgery will price match things if they can. I got them to price match some Altura Aack 3/4’s which was great.

    Condor is open Saturdays I think. Brixton Cycles is ace though. 🙂
