Welcome to Blue Door Bicycles cycle shop Crystal Palace!
We are a friendly cycle shop Crystal Palace Central Hill, South East London (close to the top of Gipsy Hill). We open 8am – 6.30pm Monday – Friday, Saturday 9am – 5.30 pm, Sundays 10am – 5pm. Our Online shop (run with Raleigh) is open 24/7 . Our premises have been a bike shop since the 1920s and we are pleased to be building on a cycling heritage built up for almost 100 years at the same site – see www.centralcycle.co.uk. Blue Door Bicycles aims to be welcoming to both experienced cyclists and those new to cycling. We sell bikes and accessories and repair and service bikes. The brands we sell include bikes from Dahon, Dawes, Koga, Raleigh, Tern, Pashley – and our own Talbot Frameworks. We stock parts and accessories including Brooks, Carradice, Continental, Hope, Schwalbe and Shimano. For for details of what we sell click here. We are now producing hand built wheels and frames on the premises. The wheels are branded ‘Talbot Wheelworks‘ and the frames ’Talbot Frameworks‘ – recalling the Talbot family who ran a bike shop at 7 Central Hill from 1949 until 2010. We look forward to seeing you!
