Hub Cycle Shop,Sandgate,Closed
#1
Rode past this shop today on my road bike ride and noticed that it had white blinds across the windows.A quick check on the internet comfirmed that it closed for good a week ago.With Activ in nearby Folkestone and Biketart not that far away,it must have been tough competition.

Not surprised really, cant ever remember seeing and advert for them or any promotion to speak off. It was always a tall ask to try running a cycle shop and coffee shop at the same time. Plus trying to sell vintage Raleigh Burners alongside hybrids and C2w bikes in an area with not a lot of footfall.

Saw this on FB last week when they were selling off the last bits. It's a shame, but their was just too much competition from Activ, and they never seemed to have much in stock, i went in there for bits a few times and came out empty handed. They presumably couldn't order stuff in without knowing they will sell it.
Also notice that Activ now just do bikes in the shop.
