Big tourer going on eBay. Not mine
68 cm Jan Janssen on Marktplaats
Anyone for a 24" steel (R 531) with some vintage campi gear thrown in for little money?
(hope the self-promotion is OK) trying to offload my old 64cm giant:
Does anyone have or know of a 62cm-63cm Eddy Merckx Corsa, MX Leader or similar frameset?
If you know of one, please give me a heads up.
Keep safe. Thanks.

I'm looking, idly, for an XL/XXL 29er frame for cheap. I want someone to replicate the magic of the carbon 9er that sold on here a couple of years ago for 50 quid
I have a 6'8 friend looking for a gravel bike. He's a big guy so will need to be a super solid (preferably steel) frame and wheelset. Any ideas at what kind of bikes he should be looking at, or if anyone has anything going...?

Spotted this 26" Mercian frame on Ebay : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/165054850388?hash=item266e092554:g:CtwAAOSwh~1hKMDv
Anyone got much experience taking their big steeds on flights abroad?
I'm hoping to get over to France next year for some hills and im wondering if common bike boxes will fit the likes of a 64cm bike in them or if im going to have to start getting inventive?
TIA for all feedback
I've travelled a few times with bikes, you'll have to take both wheels off and seat post out. I'd also ask the bike shop for a big cardboard box as it makes it easier, of course! But you shouldn't have trouble.
Thanks for the advice rj. Good tip on the cardboard bike box as a backup!
I used pipe insulation (held in place with electrical tape) to cover as much of the frame and exposed bits as possible plus a few bits of sheet polystyrene. Made a right old mess when I was packing but arrived in the US in one piece.
Ah I took that as cardboard box. My bike also fits in a bike box alan without problem. I think you can be relatively comfortable that it will turn up un-damaged but they are expensive
I used to fly 4-5 times a year and used a cardboard box with plenty of padding and additional cardboard sheets. Plenty of online guides on how to pack. Wheels off, mech/hanger off, suspension compressed to protect stanchions. Disks off.
@rj @velosaurus - Well i'd better get my flights booked then. Thanks for all the tips guys, as ever much appreciated!
