Not about bikes but it makes us laugh.

This is one of my favourite sections from the surf film Sprout

Christmas Opening Hours and a Big Thank You

Christmas is almost here and with the new year brings our one year anniversary. This time last year we were getting the shop ready for opening in the freezing cold and snow with expensive and lavish interior fittings (ha!)

So here we are one year on, and we would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us through our first year. Friends, old and new who have encouraged us and brought us their bikes, and who have kept us laughing (and in jaffa cake supplies) And our families, who have been behind us every step of the way.

It has been a brilliant year and we hope that we can continue with lots more of the same in the coming year.

We have normal opening hours until Christmas Eve when we well be open from 10am til 1ish.

We are then open on Wed 28th, Thurs 29th, Fri 30th from 11am til 4pm, and Sat 31th from 10am til 1ish.

Did you know...

...It was International dress like a dog day? Well technically it isn't, apart from in the small principality of The Bike Hub. We have found that customers don't even flinch if you chat to them with a black nose and you can even get served in The Brunswick without any trouble.

Chris' hat is actually an Ignite D30 trapper hat which has protective panels which is handy for long boarding. Nicks hat is his daughters which has no protection, it just gives him the ability to look like a poodle/Rod Stewart lookalike.

661 Mini DH

While we were all standing in the rain watching the RedBull Downforce event in Swansea last week, there was a MiniDH race going on in the Forest Of Dean. It seems the weather was better over there as well.

For results, videos and more info go to 661MiniDH .

The Swansea University Cycling Club went in force and congratulations go to Max Robinson who won his category. It looked like a really fun event so we will be entering the next one.
