Going up to london tomorrow for a few days, anyone recommend any good, large, road orientated shops up there to have a mooch around?

    condor on greys inn road should be on your list, great fun

    as well as condor above, these are places you can ogle some of the less common frames/bikes...

    ...they're not large though is a bit outside london (30 minutes from waterloo, nice places nearby for a meal/drink so can be a morning/lunch trip), but large and has an excellent range of stuff that is not found in most stores (argon 18, castelli, enve etc. etc. etc.) good sram prices
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    waterloo cut evans is the "roadie" store from the evans chain. mostly non italian bikes, groupos, gear, clothes etc..

    theres also cyclesurgery in holborn that has decent stuff. wilier, assos, gear, groupo, giant cube
    Point Reyes
    Raleigh Burner

    yep +2 for Condor (BTW the bikes are downstairs)
    Brick lane Bikes for singlespeed heaven It's on bethnal Green road i think

    Cycle Surgery is a good big shop like an Evans
    You'll find Cycle Surgery and Evans at Spittalfields

    BTW there are Boris Bike stations at all these shops so get yourself on a Boris if you don't have a bike with you. Condor is quite awkward to get to by tube the closest stop is Farringdon then a 5 -10 min walk
    Enough bikes to open a bike shop but always room for one more...

    Simplest way to get to Condor by tube is Chancery Lane on Central Line - you just walk in a straight line along Greys Inn Road from there - not more than 10 minutes. From Farringdon is a bit twisty, turny!

    ...But I don't think they are open on a Sunday, if that is the day you are popping up to town...
