Gotta love working in the trade, almost every day is like Christmas :D

Guess we get about that many parts about every 2 weeks.

Hoooge delivery coming tomorrow, store room is pretty full & we're a man down (IOMTT), guess I'll be working up a sweat :roll:

Got a free kids helmet on the last order we had, guess they mis-counted :lol:

We only do Campag to order, as we do more MTB's than road bikes, it's all SRAM & Shimano, with a hint of Syntace 8)

Just had a delivery from Juice Lubes today, managed to get a few samples for myself :wink:

we are building shed loads of road bikes to order. more than MTBs. bread and butter is the "shopper".

still need to do the fork service area. I need a sink.

Two other LBS in the area have a good market share of road bikes & are well known by the roadies, we prob only have 12 road bikes in the showroom & sell maybe one a week.

This week we sold a £3.5k time trial bike :shock: but usually £300-£1k MTB's are the bread & butter stuff
