CityX visited the store on July 8 following reports it had closed down.

According to reports, the store closed down two weeks ago, with one person stating on a Google review that it was ‘closing for the last time’ at the end of June.

It stated: “Great place but unfortunately closes its doors for the last time this week.”

The business, which sold a range of new and used bikes, has not responded to CityX for more information regarding the closure at the time of writing.

In March 2017, 128-130 Carholme Road had planning approved for the erection of a building to accommodate 14 self-contained apartments with 14 associated parking spaces, with the approval stating work must begin within three years of the date of the approval.
