    Ever fancied having a go at roasting coffee at home?

    Kaldi coffee roaster for sale - used only a handful of times before I ended up getting a job at a... err... coffee roastery (the two were not directly related, I wasn't that good at it!). Consequently I don't really have the time or inclination to use it so I'm putting it up for sale at £250 - about half of what it cost new.

    250g capacity means you can get about 200g coffee per roast. The unit is a drum roaster with electric motor driving the drum, so it needs to sit on top of a gas hob - I have a camping stove/hob but need to keep hold of it. If you have a very well ventilated kitchen you could do it there, or just a cheap Campingaz type stove is ideal.

    I've also added an electronic temperature probe and reader which you can have for free - this makes the temperature readout significantly more accurate, and I also have some green (unroasted) beans which you can use to get started.

    Very happy to take some time showing the buyer how to use it and offer any advice I can. Pickup only from Thames Ditton KT7 preferably, but can investigate postage if needs be.

    Any questions just shout.

    Ridgeback World Panorama FRAME & FORKS ONLY size 54 (labelled SM) for sale, £200. Pickup from KT7 (Thames Ditton).

    Reynolds 725 touring frame and forks with some cosmetic wear in the usual places but in good nick and lots of life left - only selling as I upgraded to a carbon bike for touring and cross racing. Comfortable and versatile - I've used on road and gravel trail with no problems at all. It's very lightweight for a steel frame.

    Cantilever brakes. Happy to pass on any of the other components pictured (apart from the wheelset, which I've put on my wife's bike) for a small fee tbc if you want the frame.

    Cannondale CAA8 105 for sale (54cm frame), used but in excellent nick - £500. Available for evening viewing in Thames Ditton KT7.

    I'm selling my beloved first road bike because I've just bought a new one and don't have space to keep both. This is a 2014 Cannondale CAAD8 with Shimano 105 components and a Charge Scoop saddle. Well looked after by myself in between services from independent bike shops, and has only minor cosmetic scratches in the predictable places. It has been safely tucked away each winter so has rarely got wet or muddy.

    Plenty of life left in it, and is all good for all types of road cycling including touring/audax (with saddle-attached bikepacking equipment), and is tough enough to withstand even the most Belgian of cobblestones!

    Ideal for a first foray into road cycling, a fast commuter bike, or as a winter bike for an experienced rider. The size would someone of medium height and medium build - for reference I'm about 5'9.

    Supplied with or without used SPD-SL pedals and bottle cage (removed for photos). Happy to answer any questions and to provide proof of original purchase.

    Brand new and unused set of Kool-Stop All Weather Brake Pads, "for all threaded stem brake systems".

    Don't fit my bike (silly me). One set is out the packet - that's how I found out they don't fit - the other set still in packet, as pictured.

    Cost me £34, will take £20 including UK postage (or collection from Thames Ditton, Surrey).
