• Happy to help with servicing and fixing. I'm AL5. I'm not a pro but I can do most things.

  • I still have a brompton I am not using for my commute and happy to lend to someone. I'm based near Reading / Maidenhead.

  • @TourdeThanks can we get this to someone?

  • Thanks both! I will DM you Zed!

  • I've got an american version of a santander cycle someone can have. It's legit and was used as part of a bid process to replace the current bikes a couple years back.
    It's lighter than the uk version but still a tank and I've removed the decals

    I'm in croydon, so great for mayday staff

    Might have missed the boat as I've only just seen this

  • I have two kids bikes outgrown by my friends twin girls. They need cleaning up and servicing.

    Happy to donate for key workers' children.

    Collection from E17 or could arrange to drop off locally.

  • Hey!! I’m sure someone would love it, are you happy for me to share the picture on our social media and an explanation about it etc?

  • Absolutely, please do

  • Hey Chas, I have had a couple of people at around 5 feet tall, how small are these? They can sometimes work for adults. My mum rides an Isla Beinn 26" :)

  • Hi William, I think these are 24" wheel bikes so likely to be too small for a 5' adult, sadly.

    Edit: Halfords website suggests up to 4'9". If someone wants to try, no problem at all.

  • 24 inch wheel bikes can be a good fit (better than a small frame on a larger wheel) for women around 5 feet tall, but will usually need a longer seatpost fitting so the saddle is somewhere near level with the handlebar. A female-specific saddle might be a good idea too.
