    Dft have quoted some figure of 2 killed and 96 seriously injured in 2015 but doesn't explain these - is that where cyclists were found to be at fault? Doesn't sound like it, but gives some nice stats to be misused.

    Bought these second hand myself but never fitted them and now I need the money more than I need to upgrade bits. There is the odd scratch but nothing major and they seem to be doing what they should mechanically. I can post at cost if required, otherwise I can do daytimes in Holborn area, evenings/weekends in Harringay (Manor House/Turnpike Lane) or somewhere between Holborn and Harringay after work.
    I’ll take any interest in order of PM rather than dibs.

    Having a bit of a handlebar clearout:

    Nitto B123 bars – alloy 37cm wide, 25.4 clamp, some scratches but overall reasonable condition
    £22

    Cinelli bars – 38cm wide, I think 26.0 clamp. I forget the model, but the engraving is the double shield iteration. They are pretty scratched up.
    £20

    Black bars – 39.5cm wide, 25.4cm clamp. Not sure what this shape is called but they are in very good nick with hardly a mark on them.
    £10

    Bontrager Race VR-C bars
    44cm wide, 31.8 clamp 125 drop. Very good condition, barely a mark.
    £10

    Bontrager stem – blue/white, 100mm, 31.8 clamp. Very good condition.
    £5

    I have more pics I can send.
    Happy to post the stem but would rather meet up re the bars.

    I was thinking maybe I should have taken it and left a note, but I was going to be fairly unavailable the rest of the day and today so didnt really want to take it on. When I came back to get my bike 20 mins later, the other bike was gone, so hopefully the bag did the trick.

    This is a sort of 'how not to leave your bike' - I was locking my bike up yesterday and noticed that the bike next to mine still had a smartphone in a handlebar mount. I hung around a bit to see if the owner would return then just put a carrier bag over the handlebar sort of as if it had been blown there. I didn't want to take it with me nor leave it in full view. Any other ideas for this sort of situation?
