    Well, I may (fingers crossed) be working in a bike shop soon woohoo!! Will cover the bills/ debts that i seem to be racking up extremely quickly at uni, but unlike my friends who work in supermarkets and hate their jobs, this is an awesome job, as a sales assistant/mechanic. Actually, its not just the money and chance to learn a lot about bikes im most looking forward to...its the staff discount :biggrin:

    The only downside is the shop has a major penchant for Orbea bikes which im not the greatest fan of, but i think i can live with that

    So where is this bike shop? Who is the lucky local forum member that will benefit from your staff discount generosity?

    well its in Bristol, i hear theres a fair few members out that way. I wont say too much just now in case theres any lurking manager types out there and i put my foot in it by being too presumptuous (spelling??). Am just playing the waiting game now but im fairly confident...

    Hmm I think you might have given away which shop it is.... not my local LBS but one I pass on a regular basis.
     
  5. Get yourself an Orbea Orca Frazer...(99% staff discount?!?!) It's the thinking man's/woman's Trek Madone :biggrin:

    Enjoy your work.:biggrin:
