- Bigfoot Bikes dead and nearly gone
He’s told folk I’m in touch with that he is being evicted. If you knew the recent past history, you’d know that was par for the course.
I’m stumbling along thanks Karin. Got an extra busy 16 days straight of work at the moment…might ring for a chat when I’m thru with that.Posted 5 years agotorihadaMember
Who’s bigfoot bikes?
Small bike shop in SE London/Kent borders (Hayes). The main draw was the club. The road section has got huge. The MTB side fairing less well, mainly due to riders progressing and organising their own thing. I first started riding with BFB when Sparky was at the shop and the original owner still owned it. A group of us still use the shop as the starting point for Sunday XC rides. Sadly the shop lost its way, weird stock choices and servicing didn’t cut the mustard. There seems to be a battle going on at the moment regarding who owns/controls BFB club.Posted 5 years agoWeaselMember
The MTB nightrides are still going every Tuesday folks, and we are getting Thursday’s back on track (more due to weather/laziness), plus weekend rides including the Surrey Hills next week.
Check the forum for details!
The club is independent of the shop by the way!

Tell us more
Nothing to tell. No longer a member. A group of us who first started with BFB moved on. We progressed from the early days when we were all clipped in, thought carbon was the future & thought you’d never need more than 4″ of travel to now: hooning around the Alps, DH days and getting a taste for Whistler. We still ride local XC (we started from BFB shop this am) but we all know each other’s abilities and are immune to the mutually obscene language/slagging/banter.Posted 5 years ago
