We are still surveying bike shops in London, and today I thought I would stop by a shop just around the corner from where I live –>> Recycled Bike Shop in Surbiton. The people working there looked cool, however, as I walked out the door, leaving, and after answering lots of questions of why I would come to their shop and getting a NO when I asked if I could take some pictures, I heard the manager say “next time tell them to fuck off”. Soooooo Iwill not be buying my next bike at that place!
Regarding the architectural aspects, it is a nice little shop selling second hand bikes and new bikes too. The do repairs in a small workshop at the back, and sell bike stuff in the front. A part of the shop is an extension of a private house, and the store runs the full depth of the house, approximately 11 metres.
Lots of bikes, not that much space. The bikes are “displayed” outside every day.
