    To me it makes more sense to spend money on an m body in nice condition and a cheaper lens to see if you like the system. You can always invest in the ‘magic’ lenses at a later date/ when you’ve found a buyer for that kidney you figure you don’t need..

    I paid £750 for my M2 from red dot camera a few months back which was cheaper than eBay etc. Plus it came serviced and with a warranty so there’s are some good deals out there if you’re willing to wait/ continuously search google haha.

    Selling these as I swapped them out for ones with a mount for mudguards, they came on my Sonder Camino when I bought it and no idea what brand they are. QR axle, disk brake mounts (steel inserts included) and internal cable routing. Tons of clearance, I ran 700c x 38 and 650b x 42 on these and there was still plenty of room to play with.

    Great condition, no structural damage and just a few cosmetic marks from normal use. Steerer is 1tapered and 240mm long.

    I'm located in Norwich so postage is possible, I have a nice big box for them and an abundance of bubble wrap. Looking for £75 posted, any questions just ask. Dibs to be followed by a DM.

    Interesting hearing other people's views on DPC injections. We bought our 1930s semi last year and our survey kicked up damp in the outer walls, the sellers estate agents were quick to suggest a company to do the injections who did their own survey and quoted for the work. What they didn't bother to report on was that the house had been rendered all the way to the floor and soil was pushed right up against the house. I spent a good few days digging a trench around the house and removing the bottom portion of render to expose the original slate DPC, the render being at least 2 courses past it.

    Can't fathom why this was ever done but we're hoping with time it'll dry out, anyone else seen this in rendered properties? Looking at the neighbours they've all got a few courses exposed with a bell bead to finish off the render so no idea how the previous owner managed to ignore the issue so long.
