  • I don't agree. Amazon, Wiggle, Bike24 etc are fine for repeat purchasers who already know what they want. What is destructive of bricks-and-mortar though are new prospects who go in to see the products and ask the questions, snap a few sly pix, then go off and buy online. This is how Amazon has destroyed the bookselling trade. But bike retailers that genuinely offer an 'experience' and become a 'destination' should survive and prosper — eg Condor Cycles. (I have no relationship with this company other than as a customer.)

  • I'm more talking about high street retail in general.

    For the bike trade I've already mentioned destination bike shops.
