Spoke, a bike shop in London’s north, will close its doors after 10 long years.
The shop, which opened in 1996 and was a major source of pride for spokes, has been the subject of multiple legal battles over the years.
Spoke has been fighting a legal battle with rival bike shops in the city, which is trying to get the shops to merge.
The court case, which has seen spokes sell over 1,000 bikes in the past decade, has also cost the shops millions of pounds in legal fees.
Spokes is the only London shop to survive and continue to sell bikes, while other shops have been forced to close due to lack of business.
The owner of Spoke told The Independent the shop’s closure was “a complete shock”.
“We’ve been here for 10 years and we’ve been through the trial and tribulations of that,” he said.
“We’re now in a position where it’s probably time to close.”
I don’t know what’s going to happen but I’m looking forward to the future.
“The shop was founded in 1996 by former spokes rider Stephen Spoke and his wife, Suanne, who both live in the north London borough of Croydon.
Stephen Spoke had been a regular in spokes for more than a decade and the shop was originally named Spoke Cycle Co-Op.
However, in 2013, Stephen and Suanne moved the shop to Stellenbosch in the Netherlands and opened it up to a new range of customers.
In 2014, Stephen sold his stake in the shop, and he was replaced by his partner, who also owns the shop.
Spinks bike shop has been in the UK since 2002.
It’s also been sold to a Dutch company, and in 2014, it was rebranded as Spoke Bike Co-op.
But the Dutch company that owned the shop has since gone bankrupt and the owners of the shop are now in talks with a Dutch partner to buy the shop back.
Spoked’s closure comes after spokes cycling is at the centre of an ongoing legal battle between spokes and the City of London over whether the shop can remain open.
Spurs spokesperson Matt Wills told The Times the decision was disappointing, adding that the shop is still selling bikes to customers in the capital.”
The shop has done a great job, it’s been here more than 10 years, it still has customers who are coming back for more,” he added.”
But it’s the owner and the owner’s own family that are going to be the most hurt by this.
“Spokes will close on October 4 and a replacement bike shop will be built at Stellenbeg, near London Bridge, in time for the new year.
The news comes a day after spokes cyclist John Hutton was fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £1.6m in damages by a court in London after he and another cyclist were killed in a collision.
Spikes new owners are currently negotiating with the court, which could result in a judgement against spokes and possibly the bike shop.
