    I didn’t like the stock easywheel that came with it, it didn’t roll very smooth at all. I replaced it first with a smoother one from bikegang but the bolts kept coming loose. Bikegang were very good and sent me a whole new unit but in the meantime I added the double mudguard easy wheel, it was very cheap UK stock from Amazon - they’ve stayed put. The rubber tyres on them do keep popping off though so I’ll be putting the bikegang one on soon. The other easy wheels are Joseph Kuosac ones from Bikegang, except I’ve put them on an extendable thing that I bought from Amazon. Love the extendable thing as it stops the bike from falling over quite so much

    Yes but I deleted the photo as thought better of putting a bicycle serial number online just in case! You’re bang on though, serial number starts 0503

    @Rhobbs Do you mean it’s newer than 2004 because of the lwb?

    Thanks for your help, as ever

    The frame, handlebars, seat post, brake levers, wheels, crankset are all as when we bought it. I fitted a new rear mudguard probably about 6 years ago when the first one was too cracked. Pedals and a few other bits I can’t remember have been replaced over the years. It’s still solid, the brakes are just a little soft and there’s a bit of rust to the seatpost sleeve. I’d personally keep it but the wife doesn’t like keeping things that aren’t gonna be used for the next couple of years.

    So it’s newer than 2004. Awesome, thanks all

    This is a screenshot of frame numbers (not serial numbers) I found on Facebook... such an enjoyable but annoying conundrum lol.

    Re-reading the paragraph though, it looks like you’re right @not4sale

    That could be true but I thought the serial numbers from before a certain date do not correspond to dates in this way? I could have made that up though.

    Actually it may be older still. The frame number is 207349 so it could be as old as 96 perhaps? We bought it second hand about 12 years ago and it was an old bike then... so that might make more sense. Found a picture of old frame numbers and build dates from a book

    Any idea the age of this? I’m thinking it’s 2007 or 2008. Will be selling as I bought the missus a new flame lacquer as a Christmas surprise (and after a few days she’s decided that, yes, she is keeping the new one despite loving this old one and still riding it... but sees no point having yet another bike in the shed that’s not ridden as much!)
