For those unfortunate enough not to have risen to the highest level of rear end comfort, we sell a range of Brooks saddles. Ranging from the ever popular B67 and B17, to the organic leatherd B67, to the 'aged' B67 (no beding in period). All come in the classic black, tan (light brown) and honey bar the aged which comes in a lovely light biscuit colour. Oh, and the aged, comes in a real nice lightish tan that suits amber/gum/tan wall coloured tyres a treat.
Also avaliable in wilder colours is the B17 and the Colt saddles. Of which I have the Manderin coloured B17 on mine (and I'm over stoaked with its comfort!)
We also stock saddles from companies such a Charge, Passport (with memory foam pading), Esspreso (affordable with a classic look) and Gusset which feature classic, wild and standard (read dull, haha) looks.
All saddles are fitted free of charge as with all accessories.
For those fortunate enough to have treated their rears' to a Brooks saddle, here's a little insight to looking after them.
Apologies for the lack of updates on here. Recently it has been quicker to update our facebook (add us if you haven't) due to the amount of work going on in the shop.
Thanks to a lack of camera this is a rather dull update but hopefully with content to please everyone.
Single speed and fix wheel riders might be glad to hear we've started selling Espresso items, which means theres even more in the way affordable cranks in the shop; wheel sets with sealed bearings, hollow axles, deep rims, a freewheel and a fixed cog and lock ring that weigh in at a measly £149.99 fitted.
If you fancy brightening your steed we've got a panatone sized selection of colours in bar tapes, tyres, chain tensioners, chains, brake calipers, brake cables, even coloured Vans shoe shaped brake pads. Get stoaked.
More people need to treat them selves to Brooks parts on their bikes. Fact. So to cement this fact we've got some reductions on Brooks items in the shop. Also, someone give me an excuse to order some coloured Brooks saddles in please!! http://www.brooksengland.com/catalogue-and-shop/saddles/road+&+mtb/
Keeping up with the awesome theme, for ladies we've got the nice range of the Basil pannier bags and seat covers in. Plenty of colours and patterns to suit your taste. Or if your after a fresh set up we've got the 2012 colours of bicycles from Bronx and Bobbins in stock, and new to us for this year, we are now stocking Scwhin bikes for both ladies and gents.
Watch this, be 'appy.

Now your sitting comfortably stoaked. BMX! Some items are still about and reduced from our little sale back at christmas time, come and get a steal. And while your buying some dirt cheap products take a peak at all the new products that continue to come in on the regular, already this week we've had IMG and Seventies come through and a 4down order is on its way
Being a new year, even though we are well into it by now, we thought we'd better change our ways and start updating the site more.
Had a couple of orders come through recently so I'll start with some pics of some bits that are fresh, and some pics as a reminder/co-ordination advice, courtesy of Gareth.
Carlton converted single speed.
Came in minus its cassette and chain so seemed like the perfect excuse to continue the de-cluttering to show off the awsome lug work.
Hard choice not to spray it but I'm glad because it shows off the history the bike's had plus confirms what it is.
Tubing is Reynolds 531. We've added some brand new double wall Weinman wheels, Schwalbe tan wall tyres with puncture protection. New tubes, new cables, pads, KMC chain and freewheel and Salsa gel cork bar tape. Had a hunt through our spares and also dug out an old Brooks saddle to finish it off.
Happy New Year to all. Hopefully nobody over ate and got used to the lie in's so that it hurt to go back to work (un-like myself).
Just a couple of quick notes to mention that thanks to the awful VAT increase, our prices will also follow suite. We're not particularly happy about this ourselves but in an attempt to soften the blow, all currently in stock items shall remain the same price, with even a cheeky few being reduced. Please call or drop by to find out. (020 8399 8365).
Thanks to the website crashing theres a couple updates that have disappeared so this is like one mega update...sorta...
Christmas opening times:
We'll be closed from 6pm 23rd December and re-open on the 3rd of January at 10am.
Anthem 2's only gone and turned up.
And while your buying that treat for your peepers, check out the rest of our BMX show, from completes, to shirts, to every other little and large item there's loads in and constantly coming in.
A refreshing change to a bike related present is these shirts from a customer of ours. Scope him and some more of his stuff here, www.heuberger.co.uk
Just hooked up an account with windwave. So if your after some FSA or Marzocchi parts (they do do some other companies but there're probably the biggest) let us know and we can order it in for you.
Apologies for a massive lack in updates and more of them for the lack of photos in this one.
Just a quick hello to mention we've finally got black ODI's back in stock.
Plus we've just got some new old looking bits in for people wanting to finish off that single speed or road project including chrome forks, plain white bottles, rat trap pedals and stems.
On the bicycle front we've got some real time warp ladies bikes and a gents tourer. All 3 have barely been ridden and if they haven't gone and i can work out how to post photos in the new way I'll try and throw some up.
Oooh, one final note, if any one would like a real piece of mid-school BMX history and wants to break my heart while helping me purchase a Commer van Im selling my TNT Hwa fong daddy frame.
A quick browse on the internet sees that the gorgeous SE Lager has been brought down in price. So to keep up we've done the same. We cant make it any cheaper but by buying it from us you wont pay any postage fees, you wont need to build it yourself, plus you'll get a first free service after a few weeks riding it. Was £469.99 but we're now mugging ourselves at £399.99
