I opened my first bike shop in Bradbury Street in 1992. In 1994 I moved to
new premises at 515 Kingsland Road and started Barclays 4 Bikes...
...for the last 25 years I have provided high-quality new and second-hand bikes as well as fixing and repairing all manner of intricate problems...
Now I have to move again - to a smaller shop. I'm downsizing but continue my pledge to serve the local community. Thank you for all your support.

Barclays 4 Bikes began life on Bradbury Street Dalston, London in 1992. Initially called 'Better Bikes', I changed the name when I moved to new premises at 515 Kingsland Road, Dalston in 1994. After 25 years at 515, the shop has relocated - but just down the road - to 466 Kingsland Road.
After a successful career as a touring musician spanning 15 years, I decided to change direction. As a child I was well known for mending my friends' bikes in my family back garden. So in '92 after enough life on the road I turned my thoughts to my second love - mending bicycles. I now runs B4B with a small, friendly team.
B4B sells new and second hand bicycles and we'll mend anything with wheels and no engine - including wheelchairs, pushchairs and skateboards.
B4B is an integral part of Kingsland Road and the Dalston community.
B4B offer a comprehensive range of bicycle repairs
