Bristol Bicycles / Jakes Bikes closing down

I had my bike booked in for next week for a service, and I've just had a call from them to say it won't be possible.

Their website says


We are closing down.

We have had to take the difficult decision to close the business after 14 years of trading.  Sales have not recovered to pre-pandemic levels, but costs are rising, and if we stay open we will no longer be able to pay the bills.

Thank you all for your wonderful support over the years.  We had some of the loveliest, most loyal, friendly, grateful customers we could possibly have hoped for (you know who you are!), and suppliers and business partners too.  Thank you all.  It is with heavy hearts that we have to say that we will close the doors for the final time on Wednesday 30th March.
