Carradice Found

March 14, 2018 — Leave a comment

We have more Carradice bags now in stock.

Made in Lancashire

I like this luggage which is made in Nelson in Lancashire. The business is small – and one of the nice things about the bags is that the person who makes the bag signs the label!

Carradice Found

We stock Carradice saddle bags, bar bags, and panniers other luggage. Pictured below is the Bike Bureau which is great for carrying laptops and papers.

Other bags are more suited for cycle touring.

More e-bikes in stock!

We have always carried e-bikes – pedal bikes with small electric motor to help you on your way – but now we have many more e-bikes in stock.

A lot of people would like to cycle but are put off by hills or cannot face their relatively long distance commute – an ebike could be the answer. You still get exercise, but that extra help can get you going further or faster.

All of our bikes should get you to or from a job in Central London (assuming an 8 mile ride) – but we recommend something with a bigger battery if you are cycling daily (eg Raleigh Motus or Captus).

It is well worth riding a number of bikes to get the feel of different systems and frames. Some people prefer the cheaper bikes so it is worth trying at least two.

Lectro Bikes

We have some great Lectro bikes starting from £999 – well under the recommended retail price. These bikes are not as sophisticated as some, but work well and are fun to ride!

More e-bikes in stock LEctro

Raleigh bikes

We have lots of Raleigh e-bikes in stock including Stardas with the Shimano Steps system and Motus with Bosch Active Line. These bikes are great for riding in town or country for commuting, shopping or leisure.

At the top of the range we have the Mustang Comp Electric – drop bar bike with light frame and Shimano e-bike system.

Raleigh Mustang Comp Electric in stock

The Strada Elite adds a bit of colour to the range!

Other bikes in stock include the folding Stow-e-way.


Test rides available 7 days week

Bring some ID for a test ride – we are open every day. Sorry 14 and over only – under 18’s must be accompanied by someone over 19+

Raleigh bikes can also be bought via the Raleigh website – select delivery via Blue Door Bicycles.

Have your say on the future Quietway7 cycle route design through Gipsy Hill.

When: Thursday 24th August, 6.00pm – 8.00pm. In order to ensure everyone gets to hear from the designers and feed in their views we are organising the meeting in three slots. The designers will sit with each group for 40 minutes taking them through the designs and then answer questions.

  1. 6.00pm – 6.40pm
  2. 6.40pm – 7.20pm
  3. 7.20pm – 8.00pm

If possible, please indicate what time you may arrive by e-mailing Luke on so that the organisers can have an idea of numbers for each group.

Where:  Emmanuel Church and Community Centre, 96 Clive Rd, West Dulwich, London, SE21 8BU

What? A chance to sit down as part of a group with the Quietway designers to give your views and raise concerns.

There will be a family cycle ride from Crystal Palace to Ride London on 29th July.

See poster for details!

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!
