Bike buying advice

by baracas77   August 30, 2013  

G'day all,

Wondering if I could get some advice from you guys. I've been living overseas for the last 6 years and sold my road bike before I leave with a view to upgrade on arrival back in the UK. Thing is, I haven't a clue where to look. I know there's a good few online shops but I'd rather visit and test as all I know is that I want something with Ultegra (possibly Di2). Had a Spec Tarmac before, but I'm open to looking at other brands.

I'm in South London, so question is, does anyone have any recommendations for competitive pricing/good service stores?

Thanks in advance.

Simple for me. Stick with specialized. When my bike got written off by a car in February the Kingston branch got me rebuilt and back on the road in a week after being messed around by the original bike vendor for weeks. Good luck !

Depending on where abouts in South London I would recommend Apex Cycles in Clapham, always good service and will listen to you and sell you what you need/ want.

Cheers guys, in Croydon (luckily temporarily!!) so both those are doable.

Are they good in terms of price?

I am sure most retailers will do deals on 2013 stock around this time of year !
