So, most of you will know by now that we are closing down.
A decision has been made that its going to be Sat 16th. (That's this week)
Plan is to open @ 9am, then start the pack up at midday, so not long for a final rummage & a last minute bargain........

If the tape is too much, then we would change to Black. (Full carbon frame/fork,105 mix transmission)

Well, Sunday evening-again, hope some good miles were enjoyed this week....

There are still some fantastic deals to be had in the shop, some bikes & parts are listed on eBay, seeing folk seem to be shy in popping in for a rummage!
What is happening is sad but you must not feel bad about about taking advantage of a good value purchase, your sure to find something that you want/need, & if not have a free coffee on us & share your memory's of 2017 TDF.

Its going to be a real shame to loose such a great local bike shop.

Well it's time to confirm what some of you might know already & some of you may of heard versions of..

I have decided to close the shop at the end of September, as the numbers purely don't add up, & haven't for a while...! Bike sales are down on what they need to be & that being the biggest revenue provider for the business is why I have had to put this in place.

For now the shop is trading as normal, so feel free to book in your repairs & bikes fits as normal. Regarding bikes that are in stock, well it's time for some lucky folk to get a cracking deal.....!

I personally plan to continue in the industry & have a few options I'm looking into, watch this space.

I feel lucky to say that I have had some really great loyal customers over the years, some have become good friends, as far as my team, well words cannot express my gratitude & fondness I have for each one of them, & I wish them every success in the future.
