For a short time I worked at 'The North West Mountain Bike Centre' in Cheadle back in 1995.
They've still got some pretty cool stuff hidden away upstairs.
I was there as one of the underpaid weekend staff around 1995/96! I remember a fair few manitous, Jmc's bikes, the lts being released, andys ac triple clamp converted efcs! and a lot of other cool stuff hidden away!
Worked the whole of one summer to fund a Chris king on 117 ceramic front wheel... Great days though!
