    Cripes. The seller says they have just been made redundant so can't blame them for trying. I see mint ones have sold on eBay for 500, maybe that would have been more ahem realistic...

    I have the very MTB thing hanging off my stand at the moment ... alloy frame, 18 speed with fairly entry level mix of Shimano and Suntour bits ... picked up from the side of the road with a buckled rear wheel and a "for free" note hanging off it. Replaced the six-speed twist grip but having hells own figuring out how to calibrate it so all the cogs engage. Me, I never really got past down tube friction shifters.

    Maybe he's looking at a new career as a spin doctor. And look at the stupid £1 under 1200 price point.

    Perhaps he meant £11.99?

    With a full garage and enough frames to keep me busy for a fair time , i decided these were not special enough

    Given your garage, the bar for “special enough” is set fairly high!

    You never know, the Beast from the East might've put a few people off
    lol me too and I bet I've only got a fraction of the bikes you have (since most of them are in bits currently, "fraction" would seem to be the right word :rolleyes:)
