    Best of luck to the Evans staff.

    The guys in the Cardiff branch seem to know their cycling onions...be sad to see them close.

    Whichever shops remain open will no doubt start to stock the same kinda cycling tat that Sports Direct sells.

    Crikey...that would be a turn-up for the books!

    Seems they're planning on selling them at a decent price too, although they're not selling wheelsets. All the links I found went to error 404 pages...gotta love the html error code in relation to the Zipp range

    They had kinda substandard stock and though I got cloddy from them, it was all a bit bland, and they didn't research good affordable-ish electric bikes. Just trek all the way it seemed. But best wishes to the staff.

    Team Sports Direct... well actually the ladies Drops Cycling Team is looking for a headline sponsor... 250k would be a mere snippet for Mr Ashley. He could actually muscle in on mens world tour too.

    The Zipp wheels seemed to sell out quickly from SD, over a day ago. Makes me wonder if they'd already started selling off Evans stock before the deal was official.
