    I'd love you to have them. The plan is to meet at our place around 7pm & then we will leave at 7.15pm. There's drinks & nibbles but no food - so come fed but not watered. Scherrit will try hard to finish his fitting by 7pm . . .

    Looking forward to seeing you then - will show you drawers.

    I'd like to find a home for 2 sets of storage drawers. I bought them when I was living in New York - but don't need them any more. The frames are silver aluminium colour & they are very lightweight & on casters. The drawers are translucent white. They are in very good condition

    The tall drawers are about 1.5m tall and have 5 deep drawers. The shorter one is about 1m tall and has shallow drawers that are a bit larger than A4. They would be really good for storage in an office - or even for underwear.

    Just please be sure you do want them & are prepared to collect them before next Thursday.

    Collection is from North Ealing (sorry, no pictures or I would have put them on ebay)

    Sorry - it's not for sale anywhere I don't think. I got it when I did my mechanics course - they had them made specially. It's the sort that holds the BB & the front fork. It also has a small tray for tools. Weights about 5kg I should think - would easily fold up to go under a bed.

    Part of my clear-out has revealed my lightly used bike rack. It's a couple of years old & in excellent condition. Sorry, I don't know what brand it is - but I bought it from the Roof Box Company.

    It mounts on the tow hitch of the car - you just drop it on, apply the clamp and that's it. Very secure and easy to fit. If you need access to the boot, the entire rack and bikes tilt out of the way. The rack will hold 2 bikes - you can carry pretty much any bike on it - it doesn't need to have a crossbar, and it doesn't matter if it's huge or tiny as the bikes rest on the wheels and the cups slide in & out to accommodate different sizes.

    The rack has full lights and has a mount for the number plate of your car - so it's legal throughout europe.

    We only replaced it because we needed a rack that took more bikes.

    £55 (sorry, too lazy to take pictures and ebay it). Collection is North Ealing.
