I can reveal that the bikes used in the flying dove bike sequence of the olympic opening ceremony were in fact Dawes bikes with purpose created mechanisms and a friend of mine was one of the riders. He is only now able to talk about it as it was kept a tight secret beforehand. I wonder if Dawes were used because of our sponsorship deal and whether all purchased or supplied free

Should do david, just going into work today it was amazing to see how many people have taken to the saddle!! Hopefully a decent August weatherwise coupled with the olympics and sales have a very good chance to recover.

The tv news already expects the nation to go cycling crazy now....even before the Olympics velodrome events have started. Hope the team GB stuff sells out now.

Very interesting article. Link below. What(if anything)are Tandem doing to exploit this explosion in cycling ? ------------------------------------------- 3.7m Bikes sold last year. Cycling given a massive boost. Cycling brings in £3billion to British economy. 20% rise in cyclists by 2015. A true step change in British cycling. Membership of British Cycling doubled to 50,000 Gvmnt must embed cycling in all road policy decisions. Dept of Transport needs to make cycling central to its transport strategy. Britain could become the best cycling nation in the word. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/have-bradley-wiggins-victoria-pendleton-and-co-1144238

They instruct their agent ( broker prob, but might not be) to bid 85p in the market. In other words they say ( to the MMs effectively) that they will buy anything sold at 85p. MMs could sit on the bid at 84p and try to make a turn, or on at 85p and take some kind of commission ( or TND have said they will pay above 85p. MM gets as close to Co's bid price as can just to drum up the business and force sellers out of the woodwork. That all assumes that it is the Co that is behind this firm bid of 85p for 10,000. Might not be. Do not think is MMs covering a short position as just not been the buying to leave them short ( even allowing for Co's buying)

This lovely weather will be giving management another excuse as to why sales have fallen. What are they doing about it? Have they thought about selling bikes where the sun shines more often? or is that too simple. Surley there biggest market is in China. Fold up bikes are very popular there such as the Brompton range. Ironically the Chinese buy them because they are made in Britain and don't mind paying for the quality. Bromptons can't make them fast enough.

Never, where u get yr numbers from ?????? In 2005, cash minus loans, minus invoice discounting etc was net debt of £2.6m..........not yr positive cash of £2.4m. Back in 2000 net debt was almost £10m. Since then, In 2006 was net debt of £0.7m; 2007-2010 agree with yr numbers. The year to Jan 2011 cash of £0.1m and y/e Dec 2011, the most recent, net debt of £1.1m after the share buyback. So: 2000............debt (£10m) 2005................debt (£2.4m) 2006................debt (£0.7m) 2007................debt (£1.9m) 2008................cash £0.1m 2009................debt (£0.5m) 2010................cash £1.2m Over that period, rounding the numbers, debt has come down by £1m per annum and the finance cost down from £490,000 in 2005 to £47,000 in 2010. Since then the buyback cost £1.24m, hence the fall back into debt The company has been consistently cash generative ( even if not highly profitable, or increasing revenue) and the debt position has been transformed from a highly indebted company in the early 2000s ( it was £16.9m of net debt at one stage)to a company that had cash to use for a buyback. I am not agreeing with the price paid to buyback the shares, however, TND remains an extremely cash generative company. My hope has always been that this cash can be used to move the company forward or at least pay out a decent chunk of it as divi.

What are those figures relating to ? Profit, cashflow and returns to shareholders are the key measures. On turnover the bike division is the only one that can be truly judged as the rest will be lumpy due to licences and fashion !

Interesting about Halfords. Some posters were a bit cynical when Tandem mentioned the wet weather having an impact on sales. Halfords mentioned it was weather related. This confirms to me that it is a valid reason and so seems to me that Tandem management are doing a good job in difficult times. Share price doing rather well also compared with the slaughter on rest of the AIM market over the last few weeks & vs Halfords. He said the slip had been entirely from its cycling ranges, which had been hit by the wet weather. "We feel optimistic that it is just a blip and not a structural problem and we are moving forward." Matthew McEachran, an analyst at Singer, said: "It just looks terribly weak. The shares have got clobbered, but I think its probably justified." Mr Wild said that the Olympics, where the British cycling team are expected to win a clutch of medals, would prove that the interest in the sport had never been stronger, and the recent fall in sales was entirely weather-related.

from Halfords Within Leisure, Cycling like-for-like revenues increased 9.7%, reflecting a strong performance in both Premium Bikes and Cycle Accessories Retail sales in FY13 have been very disappointing so far. In particular we have not seen the usual seasonal demand for Cycling and Outdoor Leisure products. with the $ gaining strength it looks like the perfect storm to reduce profit even further

believe they were made aware that their holding was over 3% after the last buybacks. they are not new buyers and if anything will end up being sellers whern the acquisition goes through
