Because generally the club are not the cheapest supplier for many parts and rightly or wrongly, this ingrained perception of club spares has that effect


It would be nice for members to support the club rather than make such comments, may be one day you will need a part from the club that no one else has invested in.

Not everyone has limitless funds! I live on the state pension now and look for the cheapest price in everything I buy whatever it is and in the case of bike spares if that is the club then that's fine but if not that's fine too. I do in my weekly food shopping as well, Christmas presents, clothes etc,etc. I am sure most on here unless they are rich do the same and wouldn't spend more on items in your food shopping just to support a certain shop. If I needed something from the club and they were the only ones who had it I would buy it if I had the money but there is no harm in hunting around to save a few bob which is often the case. No point in getting on your high horse about it it's life and most people I know would do the same. I was merely stating why I think others look to other suppliers first and giving and honest answer to a relevant question.

Far from being on my high horse. I'm merely pointing out the facts. The clubs parts service is run just like any other other clubs, being that it relies on the support from dedicated members who wish to see the marque survive and the bikes in continual use. Without members support then any clubs parts service will go the way of the local high street shop! A case of use it or lose it! As a small business the clubs parts service has very little buying power and cannot place orders in high enough unit quantities to command the best going rate. Coupled with the fact that our overheads are substantially higher than other competitors our prices are naturally going to be slightly more.

The club is run and administered by a few volunteers and 2 paid staff. The volunteers are dedicated and enthusiastic with the sole aim of keeping the marque alive. If all members adopted the same approach of continually going for the cheapest option regardless then we may as well shut the shutters now. However as our far flung overseas members are not in such a fortunate position as those in the UK we'll continue for as long as is possible. They aren't in such a fortunate position as the UK members and therefore rely on us doing what we can are grateful that we do it. It's true we don't always get it right and for the lowest price, but at least we try!
