So it was in April this year that we reached 30 years at the same location in Rusholme… we thought some people might like to see some photo relics I’ve dug out of a dusty old box!
SO much has changed, and particularly over the last year or so it’s feeling like quite a different shop. The old faces are still around but the influence of the younger lot and their strange cycling ways are having an effect!
This was the shop and it’s proprietors not long after we opened in 1983
Within a few months they’d picked up this reprobate; you might recognise him…he won’t leave!
80′s Tandem Touring! This laden treat belonged to a certain Malcom Cowle, a popular Withington frame builder some people may know of. (After expanding to the florists next door)
The grand re-opening of 1994!
A very 90′s mountain bike display from soon after the re-opening. A couple of classics in there!
Such a loveley display attracted the local Ram-raiders! They couldn’t keep their grubby mitts off the anodised shiny bits! ….note our Sheffield stands now outside the shop
And this one’s just a classic from an old Flying Doctors club ride. Broken collarbone I think it was – Ouch!
See you soon!
