On Your Bike near London Bridge station (south side of London Bridge) might fit the bill: www.onyourbike.com/stylesheet.asp…

There's a (slightly out of date) list of other bicycle shops in London to browse through here: timeout.com/london/aroundtown/features/1713/…

I can't think of any bike shops in central London which sell beer glasses or other own branded items except for bottles.

For non-chain shops; Bikefix in Lambs Conduit Street has an the largest range of bents in London, Condor in Grays Inn Road is probably the best one to start with

Adding my thanks.

I'm going to London in May and part of the shopping plan is upgrading of biking equipment.

Tips for stores with good offers are welcome.

Why not expand it a bit, and get him some London Underground underpants with "Mind the Gap" on them? Or something a bit classier.

The London Transport museum in Covent Garden has a shop that you can go to without going into the museum itself.

Otherwise, there are free cycling maps of London that you can get sent to you.

We've got 2 separate questions here.

Sam_Bell: I bought my own bike from Condor Cycles, which was recommended by Mr Cellophane, and you should definitely visit it. Otherwise, a good chain of bicycle shops is Evans Cycles who often have sales, they have a lot of shops in London

http://www.evanscycles.com/

Bike Works is a charity in east London that has a shop, but that is very small. It is particularly good for Londoners wanting second-hand bicycles.

It depends what you are looking for. The main cycle shops in London are OnYourBike next to the London Dungeons or Cycle Surgery and Evans which have branches of various sizes around London. I find the best deals are on the Internet.
