I've had a poke around online but can't find much by way of company history. Anyone have a better idea than me, maybe something in a printed catalogue of theirs?

Any help greatly appreciated!

What are you trying to find out about them?

When the company was started/ first stores opened. Any stand out years/deals, the development of the company as a whole.
 
I heard they were a bit of a dodgy enterprise. Taking on recent post-grads and sucking their brains. Instead of paying them a decent salary, they offer a share scheme / Ride to Work arrangement so you get the idea that you are getting something for nothing...etc.
They are keen on decent cyclists though - particularly ones who have done VSO - developing Europe, East Europe etc. They tend to send container loads of 'unwanted' bikes over and expect the youngsters with local knowledge to fence them help the local community get mobilised. You'll live in a stone shack with a view on the world...mostly through the roof.*

*None of this is true, but good luck Andy! :smile:
