Vale Bike Hutt

Another LBS gone: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bike-Hut ... ?ref=br_tf

In fact not just another, but the best in Wellington.

I did my best, spent as much money as I could, but to no avail. :(

Bummer.

Makes me wonder though, how has Burkes kept going all these years? What's their secret?

Burkes bins? They have a pretty wide range. Plenty of bling, but also loads of kids bikes, gym equipment, accessories etc.

Very sad to see Bike Hutt closing under these circumstances though... :(

Shitballs. Mike's a genuine enthusiast for cycling in all its forms, and deserves success for his effort and all the inspiration he's provided to the Wellington cycling scene.

Hope he finds something good to look after himself and his family with.

That's really shitty.
I'm gutted for Mike and his family and Mark, Jason and their families.
I hope everyone finds something good to move on to.
Also a big loss for the Hutt Valley and the wider Wellington cycling community.

Also, since I haven't been in to the shop for a while, is it ruder to turn up to the liquidation or not go?

I presume the money will go to the debtors and not Mike
