We offer a wide range of products and services: bikes, parts, clothes and accessories. We sell good brands at sensible prices and when you buy an adult bike from us, we offer you a free first service after you have had it for 6 weeks. Our adult bikes start at around £250 – we sometimes have second hand or special offer bikes less than this but our experience of cheaper bikes is that they are generally not worth the money.
good bikes with a fine pedigree including Dahon, Dawes, Diamondback, Pashley, Raleigh (including electric bikes) and Koga – see Bikes in Stock page to see what we currently have in the shop. We usually have around 100 bikes in stock. If you want us to build up a bike to your specification, we can help with this. We can supply frames and forks separately including road, cross and MTB frames from Kinesis. Also made on the premises are Talbot Frameworks bike and wheels under the name Talbot Wheelworks.

We do not sell cheap bikes since, as much as we like our customers, we don’t want them back to complain that the bike doesn’t work! However, we will try to keep in stock bikes from around £250.
We have now teamed up with one of our suppliers, Raleigh, to offer online shopping for many of our products including bikes, clothing and parts. Click here to go to the online shop. Don’t forget that we offer a some items in shop rather than online.
For no longer hire bikes – sorry..
We also offer a full servicing facility with a professional workshop and properly qualified staff. Please call the shop to book as the workshop can get full – 0208 670 9767.
We build high quality wheels under the name Talbot Wheelworks. We can source Mavic, DT Swiss and Shimano rims and a variety of spokes and hubs from manufactures such a Hope. Our wheelbuilding is carried out by Justin Russell and we market the service under the title ‘Talbot Wheelworks’ – Talbot was the name of the family that ran the bike shop before we took over.
We offer a wide range of services and repairs. Regular services (brakes and gear and general check over) are £55 plus parts. Other options are available right up to complete strip-down and re-build. We will also put your new bike together for you should you buy a bike delivered in a box – £35 for assembly and safety check (£5 extra if you need us to dispose of the box). Please not that it is not possible to service some cheaper brands of bike due to the quality of the components.
Recent feed-back from Desmond MacMohon
I recently took my bike in for some repairs and was very pleased with the results. The work was done promptly and at a good price. The technicians are excellent at Blue Door. They are very knowledgeable and effective. I can’t recommend this shop highly enough.
An earlier job was re-building a Roberts bike and we were pleased to get this note from the owner:
‘Hi, just want to thank everyone at Blue Door for the fabulous job of building up my single speed Roberts. From a collection of seemingly disparate components has emerged a stunning bike which attracts compliments everywhere it goes (even from non-cyclists!). A special mention must go to Dave for his saint-like patience in dealing with a very, ahem, particular customer.
We also received the following email from another customer:
Many thanks indeed for the service of the above last week. I took it on quite a challenging ride 113km King of the Downs and I am afraid I was the only part that let the side down as the bike performed faultlessly.
Many thanks again,
I’m sure Paul’s personal performance was much better than I could have achieved! (D)
