I should probably introduce myself... hello, my name's Pete and I'm in the process of opening a new bicycle shop on Evelina Road. The process is taking rather longer than expected but I'm hoping to open up in the old florists, "Hello Petal" at no. 118, once they move out. I run Rat Race Cycles, currently a mobile bicycle repair service specialising in corporate group servicing, wheel building and custom builds. While that's going well, we're increasingly being asked for clothing, accessories and off-the-peg new bikes, so opening a shop seems to make sense. We've already got quite a few customers and friends in and around Nunhead, so it looks like a good place to set up shop. I've lived in SE London for the last 12 years, renting in East Dulwich before moving out to Catford to buy our first flat. I've always liked Nunhead and I hope to contribute to its improvement and become part of what seems a very pleasant community; my wife and I are planning to move back into the area in the not-too-distant future. So I thought I'd open up this thread to answer any questions you might have, and to say hi.
