have had a few questions re this and its condition

well being honest i would budget for some new tyres , poss chain and cass as when pedaling every so often it feels like a stiff link but all look ok ?

so in relation to above open to offers
 
Great. Very interested. Need to pop over to view once festivities are out of the way. Will PM you.
 
Thanks for the bike biggs682. Couldn't resist and took her for a spin for 15 miles when we got home. Ride is like a dream and would agree that the intermittent "knock" is probably the BB. Was more pronounced on the hills. Will be fitting the 7 speed cassette I have, to give me a bit more gearing because it was a tad to high for me.

Off to the LBS tomorrow to get the BB, new saddle and some new peddles so I can clip in.

Really happy.
