I see! Makes more sense now!
I will look into it in more details.
Thank you for the screenshot.
For the business use I'd imagine it'd be closer to £38 than £18.
£38 x 12 = £456 which is the number I was quoted.
They want to promote cycling, reduce congestion, improve air quality then they charge you more than a car for insurance.
Makes no sense but makes them money!
I will keep taking the risk and have no insurance against theft (I already have personal insurance via British Cycling and goods in transit with my business insurance).
I'd be interested in knowing how much your insurance is.
When I tried to get my Douze e-Cargo bike which was around £4,500 new, all insurance companies hit me with a £450 annual premium + £250 compulsory excess.
It is a mental amount as it is more than my car, motorbike and house insurance put together (all in Zone 2 London).
Fingers crossed, three years on, I still have my bike and I have saved £1,350 on insurance...
My brother just picked up this Motobecane tandem in France for me to bring it back to London.
Looks like it needs work so will be asking questions soon!
Best value compromise.
Glad to hear the bike user is happy!
I think the shiny one would work best as the clamping system looks thinner and should allow fitment of "vintage" saddles.
PM coming for pick up and I will freecycle mine too.
I am looking to swap seatposts, purely for cosmetic reasons.
The bike has late 80's / early 90's Columbus SLX New steel frame so would like something more classic looking.
Currently fitted with an inline 27.2mm Promax alloy one with minimum setback. Quite a large clamping area so will not fit classic saddles with "hidden" rails (like San Marco Rolls or Selle Italia Turbo) but works fine with saddles with rails on show.
Looking for something silver with some seatback which isn't too battered. Ideal situation would be a 3ttt that matches the stem / bars.
Happy to meet around town to swap.
