    I moved to Singapore last year. The guys who shipped our stuff said i didn't even need to put the bike in a box, but i did put it in a cardboard box from a bike shop for a little extra peace of mind. As was said, if you're shipping all of your possessions in a container there's absolutely no reason a Bonza won't fit. Are you looking to air freight everything instead?

    I’ve always had good service from the folks at Woolsey on Acton Lane, again not Ealing but not too far from it.

    Sold.

    Cheers for all the bike love—I’ll probably spend the next few years trawling for one with a taller head tube!

    Yeah, can do. I’ll send you over some more detailed pictures of the saddle this evening.

    I bought the frame last year as a project but haven’t made much progress—I guess having a child will do that. Now we’re moving abroad for a bit so I need to free up some storage space, and I’m coming to grips with the fact that the front end is probably going to be too low for me, anyway.

    I believe it’s a mid-90’s frame in great condition—the welds are super neat, as you’d expect from a Merlin. The fork has had a bit of rubbing just below the crown, but it looks to be cosmetic, not structural. Dimensions are below. The bottom bracket is Ultegra and hasn’t been used, the stem and seatpost came from the forum, as did the saddle (a Specialized Romin with carbon rails and a scuff on the NDS nose). I have a front mech clamp that I’ll throw in, too.

    TT c-c: 55 cm
    ST c-c: 52.5 cm
    ST c-t: 56 cm
    HT: 11 cm without headset, 14 cm with external headset

    I’m currently packing and sorting things for the aforementioned move, so I would appreciate collection from West London, but I do have the box the frame came in so would consider posting. £450 excluding postage & fees.

    New: the newest (I believe) public art installation in the neighbourhood, on a road equal parts ecclesiastical and agricultural.

    Old: Recognised this from my run commute, so thought I would introduce ducklingrabbit to the fun of bike tagging. It’s “Tree of Life” by Carrie Reichardt, next to South Acton Overground station.

    Does anyone have any experience with the section 5 process whereby leaseholders have right of first refusal to purchase the freehold of their building when the freeholder is looking to sell?

    We live in a block of 80 flats, many of which are rented out, and I’m on a chatting in the hallway basis with maybe two of my neighbours. I’m wondering if it’s best to canvass for other interested leaseholder-occupiers first, or whether I should get in touch with a solicitor myself. Some of the horror stories upthread about bastard freeholders have convinced me that this is something I should pursue! Has anyone been in a similar situation?

    This Easton came on a frame I bought and I’ve no use for it—£10?
