My employers, Halfords, have finally woken up to what they could be. We started as a bike shop over 100 years ago and we are finally going back to respecting all cyclists as valued customers. We are currently updating a number of our stores and seperating off the cycle department and bringing in more desirable stock
In fact so good is the turnaround, I have applied for one of the new positions of Specialist Cycle Mechanic. It's a demotion for me from my current position of Bike Manager (that role doesn't exist in the new style stores) and pays about £5k extra and I get to fiddle with and sell bikes each day.
