  • I've used one of those quad chainsets, they are ridiculous and stupid!
  • What make is that bottom bracket tool on page 4?

    I know Cyclo does this one http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=32408

    Think about getting a long bolt that will fit though my cartridge bottom bracket tool to hold it in place to stop it slipping.

    Did Wiggle oblige with the free Haribos? :lol:
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
  • nicklousenicklouse Posts: 50,675 Lives Here
    who is this wiggle you talk about?

    any freebies would be good.

    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

    Yet they still manage to find the one you want
