Today I resigned from my job at a local bike shop to...
PURCHASE MY OWN BIKE STORE !!!
HEAVIEST WW PROJECT YET
It's about 50km away, so it'll be a bit of a ride or drive everyday - but it'll be MY OWN SHOP!
I've worked in retail for a long time, and have managed and worked in small audiophile HiFi shops, large home electronics stores, computer franchises and, of course, a bike shop. So, sales and management wise - all is good.
Best of all, a passion for cycling and getting people out to ENJOY riding. Not neccesarily competitive, fast or technical - but just to get people out there on bikes.
If they enjoy building a sub 6kg bike - mate, I'll be happy to help! But, if they are after some hard to get vintage part for a restoration project I'll be equally intruiged...
the store logo will be -
I take that shop over on the 19th February 2007, and have plenty of things to sort out in the next few weeks!
Here it is -
It's in a regional Western Australian town called Collie - mainly Coal Mining, Power Stations (Electricity Generation) and Alumina Bauxite refinery. 50km inland from the coast about 200km south of Perth.
Plenty of MTBing around, and was the centre for road and track cycling in the state up until about 30 years ago.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings. I hope the moderators don't lock this thread - I just want to share my happiness and excitement!!
