CRC is very good.Last thing i ordered was a headset and it arrived next day.
Means getting it fitted this weekend instead of next week.
The headset priced cheapest elsewhere was £65. CRC was £31

Very good pricing in general with some spectacular clearance sales.

I'm not saying they aren't a fantastic place to shop but I really wish I could keep my business local. However the stock they hold is truly amazing and you can find things there that no LBS can afford to have in stock. Their warehouse must be bloody enormous.

It is :shock:

It's just down the road from where I work, so you could say it's my LBS :lol:

Has an indoor karting place next door to it too, great fun :D :D :D

I do this also
At freeflow bikes having a crank and headset cups removed=£5
At Willy Bains having a stuck crank removed,and the headtube reamed on my pure7 for him to fit my new headset.

Shos cant compete with online and the only 2 shops i use one are freeflow bikes,that has a large online shop so can compete with most online sales and the other only does repair and servicing work[doesnt sell bikes and limited bits] So both are kind of covered and i feel happier buying online and having them do the stuff i dont have the specialist tools or knowledge for

Willy Bains

My amazing powers of deduction tell me you can't be far away from me. You can't get a better LBS than Willy Bain.
