To celebrate the coming of Summer we have lots of Summer Specials in store. Many adult bikes have been reduced in price – some by hundreds of pounds.

We try to offer good value all year round – but with quality adult bikes now starting at well below £300 you can bag a real bargain.

Summer Specials – not just hybrids

We keep a wide range of bikes in stock and have special prices on hybrids, road bikes, folding bikes and touring bikes. Don’t forget many of our e-bikes already have prices below the recommended retail price!

Buy with confidence!

We build and thoroughly check every bike before it is put on display.

Before you buy a bike from us we want you to test ride it – we can lend you a helmet if you need one.

Once you have your bike we want you to bring it back for a free 6 week service so we can adjust brakes, gears etc. Some bikes come with additional free servicing for the first year. Where or not you have free servicing you can be assured we are here 7 days a week to offer mechanical support  and back up.

We have been a bike shop for almost 100 years – we are not intending to go anywhere any time soon!

Do you have children who’d like to improve their cycling skills? There are free classes available in Croydon bookable here.

Bikeability is today’s cycle training programme. It’s like cycling proficiency, but better! It’s about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling.

Basic riding to independent journeying

There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills, no matter what is known already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees from the basics of balance and control, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads.

Bikeability is also available in many local schools. Don’t forget to get your child’s bike ready for the lessons – we can help with servicing and repairs – as well as replacements if your child has grown out of their old bike.

 

Litelok now in stock – Sold Secure Gold lock weighing only 1.1kg.

The Litelok is a new product that uses a composite band rather than a steel shackle or chain/cable. The material – Boaflexicore® – is really tough and married to a Squire designed lock mechanism is it a great way to keep the thieves at bay.

Litelok comes in a number of colours and is sold in singles and pairs. Multiple locks can be joined together to make a longer loop.

Litelok is made in the UK and was initially funded as a Kickstarter project.

May Bank Holiday

We will be open 10am to 5pm on Bank Holiday Monday 1st May.

Alternatively you could go for a bike ride….

Koga Signature bikes are customised to your requirements. You pick frame size, gear system, belt or chain drive, lighting system etc but you will probably want to see a real Signature bike before you create your own so we have demo bikes for you to see in store.

Our latest Koga Signature Demonstrator is quite a bike! Fitted with Rolhoff gears and a belt drive it is a robust, high spec bike suitable for touring in the most demanding of environments.

Belt drives are clean and maintenance free. They are also tough and light. Coupled with the internal hub gears you have a combination that will take knocks and not complain or let you down.

Fully Equipped!

Like many Koga bikes, the Koga Signature Demonstrator comes with high quality hub dynamo lights, front and rear racks and mudguards. We particularly like the lights – not only are they bright and practical – there is something almost magical about making your own light!

Koga Signature Demonstrator

To see the bike ‘in the flesh’ call into the shop – we are open 7 days a week. Bring some id with you and you will be able to take the bike for a test ride.

Do you want to get your bike checked over before Spring is properly sprung?

We are offering free safety checks Thursday 20th April. Book by phone 0208 670 9767 or try your luck and pop in.

We are open as usual 08.00 to 18.30 but final time for a check is 6pm.

 

We have a fresh supply of new Koga bikes arrived in Crystal Palace. Highlights include the Sportslady, Beachracer and XOver.

Flat Bar road bike

We have a great flat bar road bike for women – the Sportslady – in a variety of sizes. This lightweight bike looks great, goes fast and is great fun. Test rides available – though please call first as with all of the new Koga bikes, some are still in boxes and will need a bit of assembly before they can be ridden.

Crossover bikes

This year’s Beachracer is a great looking cyclocross style bike tuned for the dunes and beaches. With wide Schwalbe tyres and Tektro Spyre disc brakes this bike will go fast on sand – but is great on other surfaces too. The 2017 green colour scheme will turn eyes as you speed past! £1,399 – call for test ride 020 8670 9767.

The Xcross is another good looking cross over bike. This bike is fitted with Shimano and Schwalbe tyres and is at home on sand and plenty of other surfaces.

More bikes

We have more Koga bikes on display in store and are expecting Koga Signature demonstrators in stock shortly including a belt drive option. All Koga bikes are hand built in Holland by one technician who signs to say that the bike is ‘good to go’ – reassuring quality control with a human face!
