    UBYK Oxford

    YAY! Bike porn just down the road from me. Will we be seeing any of the BM massive in there on Saturday? I hope to poke my nose in around lunchtime to drool all over the pretty.

    Won't there on Saturday but I'll certainly check it out soon. Will be nice to have a (hopefully) decent shop in Oxford.

    That's a dangerous option, wish you hadn't told me about that

    Oxford really does need a nice bike shop, they either seem to have lots and the most condescending and insulting staff, or nice staff and stock next to nothing. How are the two mutually exclusive?

    Yeah, liked the place a lot, and the staff were really nice when I went in, even made me a coffee. Seemed to really love their bikes, and I'm looking forward to them getting a bit more of their range in.

    Popped in this morning and there were far too many shiny things in there that I want. Had an sb-95 in and a sb-66 carbon as well as a bronson to lust after. They seemed to size me up pretty quick - we had a chat about what I rode at the moment etc then I asked about a cheap carbon 29er and they'd soon persuaded me that I really wouldn't be happy unless I got the arc-c
