    I'm sure you're already aware but I believe it was Jamie from SBC Cycles who made me aware of radar keys which can be used to open canal and some park gates on paths.

    Pretty sure you can buy them on amazon

    Larry vs Harry sell a Bullitt cover but it is very expensive for what it is

    Large waterproof motorbike cover should do it

    Jacob, my birthday is still a long way away, sweet of you to plan my present so far in advance.

    It is a Medium, pretty certain it is 54.5cm square, however just spoken to the owner and he's going to use it at home (previously a coffee delivery bike) for the rest of summer and likely sell it towards the end of the year. Will post on here first with details when it is for sale

    Omnium kid transporter attachment.

    I've ridden an omnium cargo with a person and their bike sat on the front a few times, the load seems high up when you first try it and sometimes when you slow down but once you're rolling it's easy.

    Omnium have an e version with Steps e8000 which wouldn't brake the bank (£3850)

    or the eBullitt e6000 is currently on 10% sale at some stockists (including us at Velo Domestique)

    plus if you happen to run a company/sole trader/partnership etc then you could be eligible for this eCargo bike grant so could claim a further 20% back. We've helped customers do this and get an e6000 Bullitt for around £3300

    Inbox me if you'd like more info/help

    They are pretty fun tools to use and I would hope a frame builder would use it to make one of these:

    Speak to Jamie at SBC if you're keen for a Bullitt he's your guy.

    I'll post back up here when I know more about the Omnium, let me know if you're interested and I can find out details faster for you

    Not sure that's a great deal for a rusty old bender...

    Bullitts start at £2460 with Nexus and £2750(ish) for Deore
    or you could get a framekit for £1560 and put together the rest of the bike with 2nd hand bits for under £500

    I know someone who will soon be selling a 2nd hand Omnium Cargo with Sram Rival and a few other higher end bits on it for around £1200

    Where are you based?
