The Hard Stuff
new stuff lurking below! (July 2012)
During '68 or thereabouts George, Terry and a couple of other club members discovered the Sander Brothers, a pair of 60-something bachelor brothers who spent their whole lives in brown dust coats in a bike shop near the Bowling Alley on Brighton Grove in Newcastle's west end. It was called Sanders Cycle Corner. It was on a corner, see? Inside that shop it was like a cross between Doctor Who's Tardis and Aladdin's Cave on steroids. And this was before steroids were invented. They had absolutely everything you could fit on a bike. So we did, almost every Saturday. We spent hours in there browsing and chatting to the old blokes, who were never short of suggestions for possible new experimental kit. Pennies in the bank to leave to their favourite charity.
