    Customers?

    But then it doesn’t open for a few more weeks yet I’m sure…

    Something missing from the front of the new store, any one care to guess.

    Ok, if you arrived by bike what would you like to do before you go browsing inside!
    (Please consider that this new store is only a stones throw from Chav central)

    Graham if they wanted bikes littering the place why would they have decided to locate the store in the middle of an industrial estate that is to be blunt a **** to get to by bike! (for most of the people in Cheltenham.)

    Its near the M5, i think that is more important than the needs of cyclists…

    I can’t remember the last time I went to a bike shop that had “bike Parking” outside.

    Don’t people take bikes inside anymore, well apart from that place in Thetford where the guy went mental at me for taking my clean bike in 😉

    Evans at Manchester Deansgate has bike parking inside just through the door, handy when the other week I took my lock but forget to take the key with me 🙄

    fairly certain that Williams in Cheltenham have bike parking as well,

    And considering that the shop is along way from the town centre it isn’t going to get many people walking there. Either ride or drive, does seem odd not to have bike parking in that context, but it may be that they just haven’t got round to installing it yet.

    Bike racks for customers who have ridden to the store will be sited inside the shop as they are in most if not all Evans stores.

    I’ve not noticed bike parking inside the Brum Evans, got some right looks when I leant my bike up against a wall in the upstairs bit

    Anyway, real cyclists only browse Evans & then buy from a proper shop don’t they?

    “as they are in most if not all Evans stores”.
    Speak with a member of staff and they should be able to help you out with parking your bike ( subject to space limitations ) inside the store.
    “Real cyclists”
    You mean people who pedal their bikes as opposed to those who take them on the bus?
    “A proper shop”
    You mea- …… I’m bored now.

    Would you really want to leave your bike outside there even locked up?????? :roll:.
    IHN right by the roundabout swindon road/Kingditch lane junction,next to Bensons Beds.Mostly in Runnings road.
    I think the staff will have there hands full trying to keep the stock from vanishing of the racks 😉

    The Evans store in Bristol is the same. Does seem odd to have no bike rack even when thy have a space right by their car park. Couple of times it would have helped me out

    Nottingham have a couple of racks inside the door. And a very useful track pump for making sure that mid commute puncture repairs are properly up to pressure.

    I’m guessing that planning permission for bike racks on a busy pavement may not be that easy to get, given the Nottingham stores location – and there are bike racks 100 yds down the road anyway.

    Morecash, it is in an industrial estate very little pedestrian traffic big car park though.

    I’ve always found Evans to be pretty good tbh. I’ve always taken the bike in with me, they’ll price match lots of stuff, and they’re usually pretty easy to get to after work (most lbs seem be closed once i’ve left the office!).
