    Hi all,

    I haven’t been active on here for a long while and even when I was my activity was confined to bike building advice and the classifieds section but nonetheless I was hoping I might post in here regarding an initiative I’ve put in place this week to help at risk people with their shopping.

    I’ve been organising a Vegetable box delivery service run by a group of volunteers from the Queens park area in NW London. We’ve partnered with a farmer who supplies a few of the farmers markets in London but who is based in Lincolnshire. The basic structure of this service is that orders will be delivered into London and then redistributed by our network of volunteers. We have two vehicles for deliveries that are further afield that is practical on a bike but for deliveries at an achievable distance we’d like to use bikes.

    This is where I was hoping I might get a lead from this thread. There are plenty of volunteers with bikes but unfortunately no trailers as of yet. Is there a chance anyone knows of any bicycle trailers for hire or that could be temporarily donated to the cause?
    We have deliveries covered for this week and likely next week as well but as demands grow cycle deliveries would be a great addition.

    Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated! :)

    And of course, should anyone know someone in need of the help I’ve included a link to the current form we have set up on Google forms. The order cut off for this week was yesterday so the next delivery will be the Sunday after next.

    I might be selling mine, I love it but it's just a touch too small for me... only used it for a handful of time... perfer a backpack these days...

    Let me know if you do want to sell. Already been thinking about putting in an order for one once I get my bike back on the road.

    I bought this frame a while back in Germany and have been planning to clean it up and get it on the road as a Weekend ride. Unfortunately cash is king right now and on my current work schedule/routine I won't be able to start any new projects for at least a year, thus it is for sale!

    There's not a lot I can tell you about the maker, all I have to go by is the Le Taureau decal which would suggest it is a Belgian build originally. It sports Nervex pro lugs which is one of the features that attracted me to the bike, the Chrome is also in fairly good condition for a bike of this age, having a couple of superficial rust marks which I've demonstrated in the photos. The frame itself seems to be made of good steel, again I'm unable to identify the steel from any decals but upon weighing the frame and forks weigh in at 3kg, 800g of which are the forks. The frame has some superficial rust marks which I've done my best to show in the photos.

    Only the forks are drilled for brakes, the rear is untouched. Rear track dropouts are Campag Brev, dropouts on fork are unmarked from what I can see. All shown in photos.

    I bought this frame with a Bottom bracket (Gipiemme) and Headset (Tange njs vintage). I've since lent the BB to a friend, it's come back with the cups in a bad way, meaning I can't supply the complete BB with the frame any longer. I'd happily include the headset for an extra £20.

    Asking price: £150 (£170 w/headset)

    Any further questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    Le Taureau - CT 60cm
    Frame 2200g
    Forks 800g

    • Possibly columbus
    • Rear dropouts - Campagnolo Brev
      BB shell is Italian threaded

    [/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT][/IN­DENT][/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT­]Regarding pickup, I'm based near Nottinghill gate, so can drop it somewhere central or pickup/viewing from home works too. Dibs n message pls.

    Cheers for looking, Pascal.

    Hm, could you tell me what the spacing is on the rear? 130mm I'm guessing?
