Elev12k - Population of the island is approx 40000 doubling in the summer to approx 80000. Main facilities!? Not really any to speak of. The main high street is failing, we have one major supermarket (other smaller ones dotted about). The main attraction is the beaches I guess
Very pebbly! Unfortunately I'm not very near to the main beaches but near to the harbour
There is currently a new Supermarket being built (Morrisons) in the Queenborough region and there are plans to redevelop the harbour pretty much which I am located in the heart of.
Not really thought about eBikes. A couple of my suppliers deal with them so I could supply them on demand. It's not something thats really taken off over here.
New cycle paths have been introduced in the recent year or so. It's actually fairly easy to ride around away from the roads.
Regarding stock. Yes I was thinking that I want to sell products I believe in even the BSO repairs have to be good repairs. If I use inferior but cheaper parts i.e steel rather stainless cables my repairs will seem shoddy and effect my rep.
I don't expect to sell loads of bespoke builds with Campagnolo or Dura Ace groupsets although I could be surprised I guess when I cast my mind to the cyclists I know already.
