Shop visited: Continuously.
Three years ago I ordered my Dahon Speed Pro TT from D Fudge & Sons Ltd aka Fudge’s Cycle Store. At the time they were the only one who did Cyclescheme.co.uk at same time having one in the shop for me to try.
Looking aside the fact that I didn’t get along with the Dahon, I only got good service from Fudge’s. Even when my frame got a crack, I just emailed them with a photo of the crack. After a few emails to and fro I was told that was a frame waiting for me. I was lucky that it was with in the five years frame guarantee and that I managed to get hold of the last frame.
We cycled up there with Chutney (the Dahon) on the trailer and were told that it would take 30min to transfer the bottom bracket and forks. We headed to the nearby pub and sat in the sun, while we waited for a SMS from the shop to let us know that it was ready to pick up.
30 odd minutes later we got the SMS and we headed back to find my new frame ready to pick up. Simply brilliant and great service. The good news is that I got new version of the frame, which have reinforced the bit I broke and it have v-brakes too.
Fudge’s Cycle Store is one of the oldest if not the oldest bicycle shops in London. It also have what is probably the biggest choice of folding bicycles ranging from the classic Brompton’s and Dahon’s to Pacific Carry Me Mini Folding bikes.
As local bicycle shop well worth a visit.

Always a service with a smile, even when it is somewhat chaotic at rush hour. The SMS to let you know that your bicycle is ready for pick up is a great idea, haven’t seen that before.
