Barry - best of luck, I hope it's a huge success for you. The premises look cool to match the kit you are selling.

Hi guys,
Thanks so much for all the nice words - you are far too kind
We had a great night - and a sore head the next day!
Lee managed to come and say hello on Sat morning which was v nice
And a huge thanks to Stefan for flying all the way from Germany for our little opening (he also brought me a nice present - see pic 2)
Here are some of photos
I am particularly pleased with the bike stand we have had custom made - it is a polished steel replica of a LW standard wheel - a customer runs a fabrication facility and measured the exact dimensions of his own wheels!

Would love to welcome all WW's to the studio- come and have a coffee and lets talk cycling!

Looks good Barry! a kind of walhalla.
According to picture 4.jpg.
A signed shirt of Erik Zabel would also do good on the wall. :wink:

That is a great present Stefan brought you, Barry.

The first images of the shop look very promising. I like the custom bike stand, but it looks like I will have to see it in real to get a clear view on it.

Good luck, again!

Barry, show the Weenies the rearwheel of your fitting bike.

They´ll love it 8)

(and change the handlebartape on your own bike you lazy boy)

Whenever you're in London, go and visit Hoxton Square. It's a great neighbourhood, very arty... it features one of Londons nicest little art gallery's, White Cube (I saw an exhibition by Damien Hirst, impressive).

Bespoke Cycling couldn't find a better place to house his studio.
