“We had 100 bikes when we began. That was 45 minutes ago and we have sold half of them already.”
Notes: Full disclosure, this is my local Cyclo store. They know me, and I know them. A regular customer. We were chatting the other day, just three days ago, and they were a little worried about their bike sale. They had about 10 bikes.
Once the day arrived, they had their quota, though. Over 100 bikes, from vintage putt-putts to carbon fibre road bikes, they were all there.
Cyclo has been doing this for a few years now, and they are creating a fabulous reputation in finding new owners for unwanted bikes.
Missing were bikes for children. But that was deliberate. They had a second location, just a kilometre away, where they were offering small bikes to a new generation of riders. But that will be tomorrow.
