Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

Just read that, after following your link on BookFace.

Awful!

Yes - I saw that - not that I use CRC much as I can get most stuff trade* the last few items I ordered from CRC actually came from Wiggle`s warehouse at Wolverhampton.   The swallowing up and demise of CRC was never in doubt in my mind from the moment Wiggle bought it, but the way it has been handled - if the BikeBiz article is true - seems to be poor . . .. but then Wiggle has always been an awkward outfit even from before the Bridgepoint take-over - the lack of phone number to speak to a human that may actually help was a real pain.

* some stuff, especially Shimano, is cheaper from CRC than it is from the official UK distributor Madison (OK the CRC stuff is OEM in plastic bags not pretty blue and silver boxes - but so what!)
