Buy bike bits at Blue Door Bicycles

A friendly local bike shop on Central Hill in Crystal Palace, Blue Door Bicycles was set up by David Hibbs - a former transport civil servant who worked for many years on railways - and Dave Barfield on a site that had been home to a cycle shop since the 1920s, most recently the Central Cycle and Auto Stores which closed in 2010 following the death of owner Jeff Talbot and about which David runs an admirable tribute site.

Blue Door is the typical jack-of-all-trades style independent shop that those who are going to compete in the modern market place, and as well as its well-resourced bike showroom and shop there is also the necessary workshop and even a juice bar and coffee bit with free wifi. When your author dropped in recently the service was excellent, the prices were reasonable and nothing was too much trouble, which was welcome given the lack of attention often given in some bicycle shops.
