Condor is a very highly respected shop and framebuilder. About half of the pro cyclists in London- ie. Couriers- ride their frames, they crop up in TT's and races all over the place, and whenever I've been in the shop they've been helpful and knowledgeable. I very nearly had them buld a custom frame for me recently, and didn't only because I got a great deal through my LBS.

Rock'n'Road I've not heard of.

You can't go wrong with Condor - really know their stuff, decent pricing, and always willing to help - certainly one of the best bike shop I have come across.

I've used them a bit and found them very helpful. Just got a set of speedplay pedals from them!! Service is good and product range tip top. It really depends what you're after

If you're after a custon frame, try Chas Roberts in Croydon.

If you just want bits, someone like Deeside or Ribble will beat them on price bigstyle, but you'll obviously have to fit the stuff yourself.

My new Roberts is in the photo gallery and the bits came from Deeside. Condor couldn't compete - still a great shop though if money isn't the object. Got the whole thing for £1900 complete.
Where're Deeside and Ribble?? (nm)muncher
