Cycling shop founded by Harry Hall (1929-2007) in Manchester between 1955-1957 (depending on source). Hall was a well respected mechanic and in the 1960s through his race contacts in Europe he sourced Continental cycling gear including wool clothing from Moa, Santini, De Marchi and Beelen Sport, and shoes by Giochotti. The shop provided race support to cycling events across Britain from the late 1960s to the 1980s, also sponsoring professional British riders.
