Since lockdowns started I found fixing road bikes to be my new favourite hobby that has kept me sane and happy. If you have any old unwanted or unloved bikes you want to part with then get in touch with any photos and prices you want.
Based in South Manchester and will happily collect. Thank you!
I have had this one about 15 years at a guess so cant complain especially as its done a lot of miles but I just noticed a crack coming away from the weld by the clamp. If I lift up on the end of the bar the crack noticeably opens up so I am lucky it hasnt fell off yet.
If they still make them I...
Would it make more sense to purchase a frame only, then move wheels and group set from my Merida to the new Ti frame?
I would probably need a new seat post and stem and bars.
One bike would go if I got the Ti so this kinda kills 2 birds, the group set and wheels are relatively new just over 1yr.
There's an excellent YouTube channel created by Pam and Gilbert, a couple of folding bike enthusiasts. Loads of really useful information that's exceptionally well presented. The lates upload compares the performance of a Brompton compared to a road bike, interesting and informative.

I’m thinking of buying a Planet X Spitfire but the wait is at least 3 months.
I’m waiting on LBS for a CAAD13 but they have no forks. I’ve lost patience now.
If anyone wants to sell a small aggressive geo road bike to put me on let me know.
Hi everyone. I have recently got back into riding. I currently have an old rigid mountain bike with 15 gears and 26 inch tyres. I have been increasing my distance and I do realize that being a bit overweight and starting from scratch I will be a bit slow. When I am out on my rides I see a lot of...

I am looking for suggestions on how to add some bling to my black Triban RC500.
I am thinking adding some colour by changing the stem bolts, headset cap and spacers and bar end caps and bar tape to orange.
I had a look, and it is possible to find each of the bits separately, but not being...
I've got Shimano Claris shifters. The shifter connected to the rear derailleur is not shifting back towards gear 1.
It is currently stuck on gear 8 (smallest gear) if I adjust the barrel it does shift back to 6th & 7th but no further
The leaver does not seem to engage to go back up the...
Maybe unusual to some but I prefer MTB pedals on my road bike. I just find the shoes easier to walk in at cafe stops etc.
I'm now looking for new but a bit more flashy and road shoe looking. (purists will say "buy road shoes then!)
Liking the ratchet or Boa system and seeking red/black and white...
I’ve bought myself a Marin Gestalt one by gravel bike a few months back and I’ve finally realised my back just isn’t up to the geometry. I’m thinking of getting a mountain bike for the relaxed riding position but don’t want to be spinning out on my frequent road trips.
The last couple of days the temps have been in the mid to upper 30 degree range. I spend my winter on my trail bikes and stay away from the road, because of all the salt and sand they use. But the itch to get on the road bike is strong and seeing that it wasn't to cold it was off for some winter...
Obviously I’m not the only one to notice but bike prices have soared , Canyon, Trek , Giant , all have put £200- £500 more on certain models of their range.This is compared to only a few months back, and now due to the pandemic a lot have sold out, has the demand and availability put the leading...
My running friend Steve has picked up so many bad injuries he wants to turn to cycling & Zwift.
I’ve noticed there’s horrible rubbish wrecks on fleabay for big money thanks to C-19.
I told Steve I’d keep an eye out for him. He’s on a tight budget been on ambulance switchboard plus he needs all...
My chain came off ,inboard and broke 6 spokes (I believe ) stainless.
Has any reader experience of the price of fitting new spokes ? (L.B.S)
Also truing the rim ?
The wheel is not a very good quality ,so if expensivee I might buy a Shimano wheel set (the cheapest )
Thank you for any...
Purchased new in 2015, I've enjoyed just one outing on this quality full carbon frame road bike. Not long after I bought it, I did a few laps of Knockhill Circuit clocking up 10.73 miles in total. And that's been it. The rest of the time it has been carefully kept indoors in my...
I started cycling in May and really enjoyed getting on the road after 30 years.
I'm looking for winter road bike recommendations,as most cyclists I've chatted with have a summer and winter bike! My budget is £1,500.
Ideas much appreciated.
Okay been into a couple of bike shops and getting given conflicting frame sizes For a road bike I’m 5ft 8.8 but being just a fraction off 5ft 9 one bike shops telling me a 54 frame and others saying 56 frame. Looking online too it says a 54 frame but just short of 5ft 9 not sure what’s best.

Well it's been over two weeks since I last took out the road bike. Not much on the trail bikes either because lots of projects around the house. Looking to put it on the market in the future, so riding took a back seat. So today I just had to get out and I was eager to pull out the road bike for...
I own a road race bike and it's fitted with a toeclip pedal, the problem is that this toeclip is a real hustle to get in and out of which I often have to because I live in the city and therefore I was thinking about buying flat pedals. The problem is that I am on quite a tight...
I currently ride a recumbent trike but looking at getting back into uprights. I've got a specialized tricross in the shed but I'd like something a bit faster and also I think it's too big for me. I'm 5ft 2", the tricross is a men's bike and is 49cm and I find the reach a bit long. I sat on a...
