Cycling Moan at cycle shop  

Just had a really crap experience having bought a bike from London Fields Cycles in Hackney. Given to me with faulty crank (pre delivery inspection anyone?), repaired using odd coloured pedal stems and took 6 months to get matching ones. They were mystified that I wanted my brand spanking new bike to look like a new bike with matching pedals. By the end of it they were f**cking rude and refused to discuss it any more. Equally mystified when I suggested a set of brake pads might be nice in the way of compensation - they actually refused before I persuaded them. I'm sure they've got their story ('it's not our fault Trek took so long sending the parts') but I am really p*ssed off with them and this is my way of feeling better about it.

Unhelpful and rude gits. I only went there to support an independent retailer. Next time I'll just go to Evans :-(

Cycling me too at Brick Lane Cycles  

Had a similar experience at Brick Lane Cycles. PHONED (!) to say I was going to be late for pickup so would collect first thing next morning, hope that was OK ?? :-

"Well not really there is a 」5 charge."

Not a good response to someone who was trying very hard to get there.

To be fair this is an enthusiasts' shop: it was evident even in the short period that I was there that people who are real cycling enthusiasts, are using this shop.

However for me for a person who knows a bit about bikes but doesn't cycle over mountain peaks every weekend I found the customer service from the non-native English speakers pretty frosty and to be frank -rude. This could be a culural thing that I misinterpreted, but then I've got nothing to go on:

Cycling  

there is 'twowheelsgood' bicycle shop just next to oddbins in crouch hill. a little bit too expensive though and quite long waiting time to have a job done. the best one I ve discovered so far is on seven sisters road about 300 yards from finsbury pk tube station on the right hand side towards holloway. They do everything quite promptly and there is no fuss if you bring bike back. For sure the one to recommend. It is called Finsbury Cycle I belive and has got plenty of bicylces outside . Can't miss it. Good luck

Cycling Van drivers  

Is it me or do Van drivers drive way too close to cyclists in rush hour? i have had them overtake me so closely that their wing mirror has hit my back and shoulders!
please van drivers, if you read this, you may be in a rush, but please, dont drive so aggressively, there is more to life than gaining 10 seconds on your journey by overtaking that cyclist so bloody closely!!!!!

Cycling Safe parking?  

Hello, I was hoping someone could put me on to where I can find some safe and non-destroyable bike parking ideas. No longer can I store my bike inside, it's just not a good thing in the hall, but not so hot on the idea of sticking it out in the garden either due to those who like to nick said transport. Anyone got any helpful ideas other than building a special little house for my bike?

Thanks.

Cycling Cycle hooks to solve parking dilemma  

Hi, I have seen some amazing cycle hooks that you put on the wall so that you can hang your bike up in a hallway without it being so in the way. i think it was probably in the London Cycling campaign magazine, but I can't remember who stocks them. Might be an idea.

Cycling Beginner cyclist needs help with route suggestion :)  

Hey guys!

Ive just started cycling and was wondering if anyone could help me out with a cycle route. I live in Preston Road, and go to uni near Oxford Street, I tried the TFL website and they suggested going through the canal, which I'm reluctant to take at night because I'm worried about safety! Is it even safe to go through the canal, (Grand union Canal) at night? I was also wondering how long it would take with the suggested route (in miles or time)? Sorry for the long thread but Im REALLLY nervous and I want to take the best possible route i.e. the safest and practical, especially since I will be taking this route everyday.

Thank you so much!

Cycling Route to East India  

I cycle to work and have just changed jobs, I live in Peckham and need to get to East India Dock, does anyone do this route? I have looked it up on the internet and it's telling me that I should go through the blackwall tunnel..! Surely not!

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Cycling Cycling to East India  

You are right to be sceptical, it is not possible to cycle through the Blackwall Tunnel. However if you head to Greenwich you are allowed to "walk" your bicycle through the foot tunnel to Island Gardens and ride from there to East India.
