Went in to buy a tube and some patches today, seems to have changed a bit. They had loads of new cycling clothes on racks that actually looked good value stuff. There were loads of pretty cool looking cycling glasses for a tenner or fifteen quid that weren't there before. They even had a woman a a nnnNNGG(deep breath) WOMAN mechanic spannering a bike! and they seemed proper friendly and helpful. Did I not get the memo about Bikehut turning into a reasonable version of a bike shop?
This one used to have a really cool roadie bloke, obvious cycling obsessive for a spanner monkey, but he got fed up with all the £80 quid bikes he had to work miracles on, and left for a decent shop. I just thought he was a fluke.
