Exhibitor Profile: Condor Cycles
Condor Cycles have been ridden to World Championship gold medals, ridden in the Tour de France and have perhaps most importantly been the choice of many figures in the public limelight ranging from judges to pop stars.
At Condor the aim is to provide everything that bicycle ownership entails from advice, bike fitting, components, and clothing to fixing a puncture on a Monday morning.
Our success over the last sixty years has been dependent upon being aware of current and future technologies. Ongoing market research and close relationships with key componentary manufactures has enabled Condor to offer the latest products, tried, tested and assessed before appearing on the stores shelves.
In 1948 the majority of race bikes were bespoke. In today's market place, a bespoke bicycle is a rarity. At Condor, it is what we have done everyday for sixty years. From competitive to fitness rider, commuter, new or returning cyclist the right bike opens up a world on two wheels.
As more and more marques take their manufacturing to the Far East, we continue to produce our frames by hand in Italy. Frames are constructed from our own selection of tubing, manufactured to our own design requirements. We utilise the right materials to produce frames dedicated to each riding purpose.
The bikes take inspiration from our rich heritage, providing bikes for top sportspeople competing internationally, not to mention many public figures. Few brands can claim to have their bikes ridden by household cycling names including Tom Simpson and Bradley Wiggins.
Condor has survived tough economic climates in a number of decades because at its core Condor and its staff have a passion for cycling.
The current Condor range spans all aspects of cycling. Road racing, road sport, commuting, cyclo-cross, time trial, track racing, single speed commuting, audax and touring.
Bicycle sales are made through the store on Gray's Inn Road. Condor sells to a global customer base shipping frames and bicycles to America, Europe, Japan and Australia.
Bicycles are put through strict testing at point of manufacture then by staff and professional team riders. The aim to produce performance road bikes not just for athletes but for consumer alike.
The signature frame in the road race range is the full carbon Condor Leggero. This model is used by the Rapha Condor race team and has helped riders to significant titles including Dean Downing 2008 National Criterium Champion and Kristian House 2009 National Road Race Champion. The Leggero is a full blooded race bike that proves it has both responsive handling on a tight criterium course but also longevity and performance across gruelling hills for a road race.
Elsewhere in the range Condor utilise their expertise in steel. The Condor Fratello offers comfort without compromise and has become the best selling model within the range. The versatility of the Fratello sees it out during Audax, Sportives as well as pounding London streets on a commute.

Few shops have the ability to cater successfully to the commuting public as well as the racing crowd. Condor does it and has a stand-alone bike brand which compares to the best in the world. Great shop, superb bikes. Legend.
