Wandering round Halfrauds on Sunday afternoon with my younger brother (after having been to Royales and watched him gawp at the full sussers)
I spyed a GT i-drive XCR in 2008 guise with a red price card, it was marked down from just under a grand to £799 then down again to £596, right I thought to myself.
Asked my bro if he liked it, he had a sit on it, ride round the carpark and said he really liked it, so out came the bartering head.
Said to the Bikehut kid are you open to offers, he said no but we can do accessories, great just what we need, more stuff, so across came the manager.
I said what will you take, he replied with "I've already knocked 200 nicker off it mate" so I said how does £500 grab you, cash here and now, he said alright then, winner!!
They offered to have the other bikehut kid check it over before I took it out of the shop, but when he coudln't figure out how to get it in the workstand, I said I'll take it as is, along with a 12 month gurantee.
Bundled it into the back of the car and left the shop with one very happy younger brother and later a slightly bemused set of parents when we rock up back at theirs with a new bike in tow, he hee
