    is there any obvious way to get the pedal apart to access the bearings?

    they should be easily replaceable if so.

    I get the feeling they might unscrew? try that, if it comes apart, measure them, buy new ones, put back together.

    can anyone recommend something good to start growing now and be able to harvest this year? just acquired a plot and going to grow some pumpkins and hopefully onions and potatoes. is there anything else worth having a go at this time of year?

    I would just buy new cranks to be honest. Pedal taps are pricey, you could get a decent replacement for less cost.

    Or try paint stripper if it’s only paint in the threads.

    For the off kilter cranks, are the cotter pins in correctly/right way round?

    Don’t suppose anyone has a bike box they need to offload? Need to send out a bike via courier. Can collect no problem

    I bought this by mistake so just passing it on really... it was a private ad with low res photo, bike looked good and decent enough spec for the money, a smallish frame which is what I was after for my girlfriend. So I drove ages to get it and found its on 650c wheels. So it’s too small for her. Even so I drove for such a long time I couldn’t come back empty handed.

    It’s not a bad bike though and probably be good for a kid around 8-14 depending how tall they are or someone around 5ft.

    It’s a 19” frame with 29” standover height.

    Peugeot Columbus Brain tubing frame, FIR EU-90 650c wheels with zaffiro tyres, Shimano 105 groupset, narrow Profile bars chainrings, 160 crank arms, Cannondale saddle but a chopped down seatpost so it will need a new one if you want it any higher. Decent headset and a solid stem. Overall it’s pretty good condition and I doubt it’s had much heavy use.

    All working but no use to me. I’ve given it a clean and got it working nicely.

    Asking £150 which is cost plus a couple beers for getting it running to a decent standard.

    I’m in Brighton but could drop off around or meet part way maybe or facilitate it being collected.

    Just acquired this Rychtarski lo pro, will likely change it up a bit over time. Only fitted pursuit bars with cloth tape and saddle so far. Set up as single speed but may run it fixed or geared. I’ll be riding it to work in the nicer days when I’m back in the office as well as just for the fun of it.
