  • So we are moving to an era where people will simply sell on their £2000 bike and buy this year's model because maintenance is not available at local bike workshops (and they don't have the skill to do their own maintenance)? Silver lining for people who can do their own...

    This was Mountain Biking in 2017

  • In Glasgow we have @BrickMan doing his thing with storage, fix your own bike and being a Bullitt dealer, Willy Bain runs probably one of the busiest workshops in Scotland and the north of England and doesn’t sell a single bike (afaik) and Torvelo are focusing on proper high end servicing but are also selling Moriarty branded chi carbon frames and wheels.

    The last shop I worked in was a dealer for one of the ‘big 3’ and sold the usual Altura clothing, Cateye lights and shite that you can find online at 50% off with 5 minutes of googling. Unsurprisingly gone out of business.

    I reckon the day of high street cycle retail in it’s traditional form is well and truly done.
