Obviously this is a complete tragedy as I now have no way to get around and it's a nightmare. But this morning I went through the Bristol Pound directory looking for Bike Shops and Services and found Really Useful Bikes.
I sent Rob an email with my photo and my life drama and he very quickly came back to me with my options, I spent most of the day being really utterly busy but he gave a go at trying to source a new wheel/rim and came back with a problem (thanks to Trek) and an alternative solution.
So I've now just got to grab a handful of cash and arrange to sort everything out (I have a draft email that has sat in my outlook all day!) and we're back on the good and ready again!
This is exactly the reason I like the Bristol Pound, it connects you with local businesses who are much better than their larger counter parts and they offer a better service that is worth going the extra mile for. Without it I would never have found Really Useful Bikes as it's out of my "home area" and I'd have probably ended up paying the 80£ asking price from one of the shops in my area.
