2012 and The London Cycle Workshop is off to a flying new start…

Welcome to the website of The London Cycle Workshop, and a very happy new year to all customers past present and future!

Over the Christmas period we were shut between Christmas and New Years to give the shop a smart new re-fit. We have pulled down the old suspended ceiling to take it back up to it’s original full height.  This meant installing new lighting which gives the shop a warm and welcoming feel, (not that it wasn’t warm and welcoming before mind!). We have done away with a counter and have replaced it with a simple workbench at the back of the shop which adds to the new sense of space, and have build a series of glass display cabinets to display stock. A series of small changes really have made a huge difference. See the pics below…

It was a good few days of hard work from The London Cycle Workshop team, including family members and flat mates! A big thank you for all of your efforts, we couldn’t have done it without the team effort! And a thank you also to St. John’s Hill lighting for supplying the lighting fixtures and giving us advice, (website here).

Updating and upgrading the shop is a never ending process as we strive to make The London Cycle Workshop the best independent local bike repair shop it possibly can be. It’s getting there! And as with the shop we are constantly adding to the array of parts and accessories that can be found in the shop. Check in to see what’s new including the rotating displays in the display cabinets. As always, we value the feedback and comments of our customers to make sure we are in touch with their needs.

Shop fitting aside, it has been business as usual so far in 2012 with the workshop staying steadily busy every day. The workshop procedure and prices are all the same for 2012 and more details can be found on the workshop page of this website. We have also been doing more and more custom bike builds of all shapes and sizes, check out the gallery page for some pictures of the most recent builds.

With January has come a shop milestone, as of the 2nd of January we had been open and trading for a whole two years. It may be young in bike shop terms but it means a great deal to all of us that work here and strive to continually make it better and better as a shop. And of course, that means a big thank you to all of our customers for their continued support, after all without you we couldn’t have got this far.

Well that’s all for now, back to work. More to follow soon. And do drop by to see the new look shop, we are very proud!
