    I'm getting to know Michelle quite well, having placed an order on 27th December and still waiting.

    Thanks all, I did take deadly on board but opted for a Beinn 20 and a Beinn 26. It took me 2 years to build my Holdsworth to my liking so the kids will probably thank me for getting off the peg.

    Is there anything with no gears (or very few gears) and light-weight for 8, 10 & 12 yr-olds? Islabikes is the nearest I've got, doesn't seem to be any competition.

    Why do major manufacturers presume that after the age of eight you need 27 useless gears and would rather do weight-lifting than cycling? My present kids' bikes weigh twice as much as mine, with me on it; they're made of girders.

    Bugger. I was just about to ring Witcomb's who are just round my corner to ask for a mudguard eyelet (one of my BJ one's fell off) and to do a chrome job on the chainstays. Is there anyone in London who can do this (particularly the second bit)?

    At least Barrie built me a set of wheels for an old ebay Holdsworth. Can I sell them for £1000s now?
