|I'll be in Reading, UK next week on business. Can someone give me some names of bike shops worth visiting? Actually I want to buy a new saddle. Any websites I can review before I leave?

|I wouldn't bother with Reading, apart from getting in and out of there as soon as you possibly can!
All that said, I don't think you'll beat net prices for saddles etc - though Condor is worth a visit anyway.

|Unfortuntly it's business & Reading is where I'm staying. Can anyone recomend a bike shop nearby Reading that does rides? I just spoke with the folks at BikePark & they have rides but & I have to get into the city.|

Try there - they are the local guys.
Failing that - come over to us in Guildford on a Sunday morning (20 miles away):

|OK I heeded the advice & changed my hotel to London, Hyde Park section. BikePark has a Surry hill ride on Sunday. Muncher thanks for the inputs you guys might be a bit more hard core then this middle aged rec rider. Does Condor have a web addy?|
