  • I've got some 28s going spare. Two sets, one folding and one wirebead. Also got some AliExpress lights banging about as well. I'm near London Bridge, can drop off if you're not too far from me.

  • Thanks for your donation Shing. Passed the lights and tyres on last week.

  • Thanks to everyone who has donated so far. I currently have 3 bikes in various stages of completion, one just needs brake blocks and grips. Any donations welcome, OP updated.

  • Can’t nab them until maybe early next week as at workshop ,got virtually new pair of Specialized ‘cross-road’ 26” semi slicks ,pair of ‘Mr Tuffy’ 26” tyre liners ,cpl of new 26” inners ,cpl of pairs of mtb brake blocks and used but complete semi modern ‘normal’ cantilevers brake sets[front and rear] from avid[first iteration of ‘shorty’ I think]and shimano[they might just do one cantilever now]and I hope a set of ‘basic’ trp ‘v’ brakes

  • Tyres, tubes and brake blocks would be great! Let me know when you have them and we can meet up

  • I’ll rummage for some parts at home and pick up tyres when at wkshop which will be Sun/mon I hope

  • Posted a complete bike offer in another post, but have some bits to donate too - beater seat + seatpost, various old type seatposts, pedals, cassettes, chains, etc. if this initiative is still going on?

  • I have this you can have.

  • Hi all, I'm still open for bike donations, and last weekend reached the small milestone of 25 bikes serviced (full rebuilds in some cases) and given away to NHS staff. My waiting list is growing and now it's darker I need to give people lights, plus locks as someone has come back to me after her free bike was nicked. Grr.

    SO I've started a crowdfunder here


    Your help will go towards the mounting collection of half built bikes missing wheels, cables and saddles filling up my studio, PLUS buying some decent bikes for tall and small people who have been on the list too long. Thank you! Peace and love x

  • Hey I have a 3x 170mm crankset and 9sp cassette for freecycle in SE24 or posted at cost. @IrPOWERranger thought they might be useful to you.


  • Hi @William I got frames and parts if you still doing your NHS bike sheme work.

  • @Eseman @billygoat28 Thank you both for these kind offers, but I am winding the project down now as I'm taking on too much and there's no space at the workshop.

  • Well done for your good work.

  • 👏👏👏
