Greetings from Athens!
I was wondering if you might be able to point out a few bike shops in the greater London area that tend to stock vintage items. I am heading over in February and unfortunately only know of the larger stores such as Evans and CycleSurgery. I'm building up a NOS Battaglin ASP Team as a commuter and am in need of a higher stem. The Pazzaz one I have now makes me feel like I am on a cafe racer.

Cheers!

Could be worth popping down to Condor Cycles in Greys Inn Road, one of the bigger Campa shops in London, although they have lost a bit of their charm since they moved into that large new shop.

Thanx, I will call on them. Managed to locate the store on the map so should be no problem.

This place is great for old road bits! Right on the end of the tube in Hainault but well worth a visit. Out of the tube station turn left for a few hundred meters if memory serves.

Cheers
