    Just popped into Decathlon in Sheffield. Apparantly they do a week or 2 where they sell off 2nd hand gear. Nice bit of recycling?

    Wouldn't say I saw anything brilliant. But i did see some that with a bit of TLC would make decent commuters. There were some names in the racks as well. Dawes, Giant, Trek, Peugeot.

    Seen some places do similar, but charge silly money. In this case they seemed OK. Almost picked up a kids Raleigh for £5, till I came to my senses (they've got enough already!)

    Not just cycle stuff. Skiing, camping. They'd got several machines that looked nearly gym sized.

    Don't believe this is exclusive to the Sheffield store.

    Hope the infos good for someone.

    Stockport's got the 'event' on in a Marquee at the front of the store - mainly basic bikes, not too great condition, but cheap, although one or to reasonable kid's ones.
