The USP of this family-run London legend, in business since 1948 and still in excellent health, is its own range of road bikes, built to order on a bespoke basis. Having chosen a model, prospective purchasers are propped on a fitting jig and measured for the correct frame and components, with clued-up staff adding appropriate parts according to the buyer’s budget. But while Condor is heaven for the serious road cyclist, there’s plenty for casual riders too. The basement showroom also has some off-thepeg bikes from other manufacturers, and the range of accessories on the main floor is perhaps the best in town.
Condor Cycles is number 33 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.
