Not really news so much; it is time to STOCK TAKE aaargh


But it is necessary. It means our ordering is accurate and we stand a good chance of actually having all the parts we need to fix all those bikes that role in and role out (a bit more smoothly) of our shops each day.

Each shop is a two day affair. Fortunately our Kennington Workshop has been done already so means:

Dulwich shall be closed on the 25th and 26th of September 2018.

Streatham Hill shall be closed on the 2nd and 3rd of October 2018.

Thanks, as ever, for all your patience. Balfe's Bikes.

We shall be broadening our range of online sources soon, at the moment we have the core-four: Full Service, General Service, Single Speed and safety Check.

To celebrate we have created a 15% off labour code:

Balfe’s Bikes launches courtesy bike scheme

Our customers need never be without a bike again as we launch a unique courtesy bike scheme — and it’s totally free.

The scheme gives you the opportunity to borrow a bike while you’re waiting for your own to be serviced. This means you’ll be able to carry on as normal with your daily commute, shopping trips or school pickups. While we look after your bike, you can carry on as normal!

And right now we’re offering it as a completely free option at our three shops in East Dulwich, Kennington and Streatham. This means that if you come in for a service, we won’t charge you a penny for your courtesy bike. Just come back and tell us how much you enjoyed riding it.
