A lot of bike for very little money.
@AlfaGT @SideshowBob I am not allowing someone to rob him like that, he is a colleague! This was for sale via Yammer at work, and he was asking £450. It is too small for me but was going to buy it for a mate if I could get it for £300 ish mates rates. Didn't want to be cheeky so didn't make him an offer. He then said he'd try ebay. I have alerts set up for mercians so not sure how I missed that going so cheap. Was it a 7 day auction?
Guy has some paperwork for it even!
I also have alerts for Mercians and didn't see it. It is a steal for that money for sure!
@AlfaGT texted the seller anyway just. On that subject, feel slightly bad for the prospective buyer if I get it seller might not want to. Have had some luck with Mercians through the work yammer group, but never flipped for a profit (was tempted as an intern once). A beautiful full campag record one went to my friend's mum a couple of years back and she's since toured Europe on it. 531c and built new for the owner who never really used it in 2000. Think I got and passed it on for ~£400
Wow what a beauty! I'm going to be checking my work Yammer in the morning!
Cheap Jack Taylor tandem originally made for Jack Taylor himself.
Mercian guy had some issues and refunded the buyer which is good
potential bargain tarmac SL5 frameset here - difficult to tell from the pics whether the damage is just cosmetic or something more serious. really just looks like (admittedly bad) paint damage to me
You buying it now then?
Almost looks like the frame has a crease in it (probably not the case). Hard one to buy off pictures
Judging by the cracked Cervelo they've got for sale I'd be cautious.
Not particularly rare or interesting, but could be a good bike out of this for someone?
Looking for something like this. Cheers.
I'm all for buying cracked carbon though usually I go in for cracked tubular wheels. But given that seller seems to know what they're doing, I'd seriously question why they'd sell that frame for £500 instead of having it fixed. I strongly suspect it's as they know it's fucked.
best bikes in the world
i've had that on my watched list for a while but I can't be bringing another bike into my life right now. Which is a shame as I've got a da7700 groupset doing nothing.
51cm Bianchi Super Pista. $599.99. Not too shabby for what is now a rare frameset.
753 fixed going cheap. Quality parts but mismatched build
Pretty rad retro Basso Carbon ending in 40 minutes
It's more a Racingbik than a Basso : one of the first - if not the first - affordable monohull carbon frame.
They've been distributed in Europe under several different names.
That went pretty cheap!
s&s coupled early calfee
'Bike accessories>Stickers and decals' not the best listed ad
