    Time ATAC Link available at CRC, or MKS Urban Step-in A showing available at Compton cycles (though not plastic). EZY version supplied from Japan. Or second hand MKS here still?: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/3316­75/
    Have had similar thoughts so interested in how you get on.
    Edit: hadn't noticed you'd already bought the Crankbrother equivalent.

    Do we need evidence the two bikes live in the same shed? And is gluing pigeons now a thing?
    Great photo.

    Are we searching for a van?

    There was an Evans at the bottom of Greyhound Hill, though bet you're long gone now. I'd noticed your previous effort when searching for (unlikely) completed tags out there.

    Everyone knows which Saxon churchyard they're (not) heading to, right?
    So a clue for a route that avoids the dual carriageways: Take the Bridge with no bridge to cross the circle.

    If on bikefix reviews. Took my elderly Birdy for a big service last year, every part&pivot clapped out. Advised to bring on a Thursday (can't remember for which mechanic, Alex?), he got it running like new, including a fix for the poor rear V-brake pad alignment they have. Thanks, hope everyone there finds a new home.

    We are up in the opposite suburbia, but Thameslink often works. Christmas tasks might delay a visit to do some tyre kicking, but we'd like to have a look. At the very least, it might shake out some other buyers. I'll get back to you later via pm about possible dates. Thanks.

    I've been lurking here from the start, watching the cobwebs gather.
    Nobody has even asked about height/suitability.
    So, how tall does my younger son have to get for this to start making sense? (now 5'10" and skinny 15yr, likely heading towards 6'1-2").
