London bike retailer Cycle Surgery is opening two new branches over the next month one on the Fulham Road and the other in Upper Thames street in the city - both are on busy cycle commuting routes. The one next to Cannon St train station on Upper Thames St is in the former premises of a VW car dealership and sits directly on Cycle Superhighway 7.
The 3,800sq.ft. City of London shop and the 3,000sq.ft. premises also in the process of being completely refitted on the Fulham Road will prioritise commuters and the quality of the workshop service. According to a spokesman, "We always pride ourselves on our workshops and both will use the latest tools and technology to service and maintain bikes for commuters and local residents alike, while customers will benefit from the expert technical advice our knowledgeable staff will be able to give to riders of any persuasion."
Brands stocked to cover the commuter, road, mountain and folding bikes categories will be Specialized, Trek, Brompton, Shimano and Endura as well as Giro, Mavic and Garmin to represent the more specialist part of their offering.
Both shops will include branches of Runners Need, also part of the Snow & Rock group. This will come in handy on the annual London Marathon day as the Cannon St Station shop sits directly on the route.
