From the outside it looks like a run of the mill '£99 special' shop but inside there are all manner of retro odds and sods.

I saw:

Kirk revolution frameset
Spinery wheel
NOS bronze project 2
Scott bars that lemond used, you know the ones that have all the extra bends
More x-lite bits tan you can shake a stick at, camlocks,disco bungs pivot bolts etc
Hope 7/8 speed spacers-loads, i bought 2
Park pizza cutters
loads and loads of other boxes of random tat....

I get the impression that any good stuff is there by mistake, not through the choice of any one in that shop. It's like a Raleigh rep got lucky ten years ago and shifted a load of stuff on them and they've had it in little cabinets ever since!
