    When your average cyclist that I know kicks the bucket, all that's left is a big collection of old fashioned bikes that the young team wouldn't be seen dead in. (if you pardon the pun) You may think it's cutting edge carbon right now but when your gone some wee weirdo, is raging at you cos you didn't bin your own crap before you shuffled off this mortal coil.

    If you know what you want then put it in your will. Saves anyone arguing about it later.

    I'll state that if I have anything usable it should be donated to a cycling charity.

    I suppose if none of my friends wants them (I’m bigger than most of them) then someone will offer to flog them on gumtree or see if anyone in the club wants them.
    Doesn’t worry me. I tend not to accumulate too much stuff since I left th UK, despite having way more space. So the mrs won’t have too much else to get rid of.

    I like Skol I'm adamant I haven't got any PPI....

    Not bothered.

    I was always an admirer of Spike Milligan, and he reckoned if you bounce your last check, you have timed it about right. :laugh:

    Mines will be sold long before they become worthless to pay for all my Werther originals.:thumbsup:

    Well if it's Carbon Fibre the best you can hope is someone will hang it on the wall. Would anyone risk riding a ancient Carbon Fibre bike?

    Just make sure the person looking after your affairs when you are gone knows what you actually paid for the bikes and not what you want them to believe you paid.
