Bike shops are becoming fewer and further between. Keep saving a shilling buying off ebay, from firms working out of a spare room. Then one day, try getting a crank fitted through a computer terminal...
Genuine, enthusiast run bike shops need your support. The ones that will adjust your chain free, pump your tyres up free with a spring MOT, lend you a bike when yours won't go, enjoy a chat and a cuppa with you because they too love bikes.
Because if you don't Tesco will be happy to have your trousers down, 'every little bit' helping their profits, turning biking into 'retail experiences'.
Biking is much more than that, and as a group bikers are a bit special. Let's keep it that way. Go and give old Twatface's Motorcycles a quid extra for that battery before he's gone!
