    Thanks, I appreciate that, but I'm not Oli, and this isn't a game of how low can you go (it's a market). £255 plus twenty for the forum is the starting price. It will doubtless sell for less.

    Noted! It's less than what I bought it for, brand new, but I didn't do any market research which is my bad. I'll update it now. Cheers

    The best non-Brooklyn BMW money can buy. Ultra practical, fairly light, I've had two pompinos and loved them endlessly. Only selling as we need the space and I have a Surly so this doesn't get the love it used to.

    The lacquer has peeled in some spots so there is some surface rust, but the bike is of course structurally sound. It's seen a lot of use but always been maintained and kept indoors almost all the time (it was in storage for about 8 months). A lovely beater and if you decided to re-do the paint and jazz it up, would also be superb. Has the capacity to fill any SS/fixed niche, braked or brakeless.

    The handlebars are the only thing I'd replace, and that's purely aesthetic (apart from the lack of bar ends...!) - they were a cheap and cheerful stopgap. I have some GT flat bars i can throw in for free - think you might need a different stem though.







    Currently on the SS freewheel but also has a fixed cog on the other side. Apologies for the blurriness of the pictures, my husband took them.

    £275 and I'll donate £20 to the forum- either ride it away in Watford, or I can get the train to meet you in Euston. Bank transfer is king, cash prince regent. You can pay by paypal but only without fees.

    at the risk of triggering some PTSD, i have a kitchen recommendation to ask... i guess homebase will not make the cut! we've recently moved into a victorian end of terrace which had the same (now elderly) lady owner for 41 years. i'd be lying if i said i didn't feel a little overwhelmed but i'm going to take it one room at a time and keep the same style throughout. first up is the kitchen.

    it's a bit of a crap space, sort of a galley but doors not in the centre of each end, slightly off to one side, so annoyingly difficult to have units which go right up to the wall. i don't know any tradespeople, i would like it to be inexpensive but i guess i have a budget of about 4-5k including fitting, i need floor to ceiling units rather than boxy standalone OTP ones, to make the most of the space. who would you recommend? i am aware there are sales on at Wickes etc until early Jan which has piqued my interest and i would be keen to take advantage of same

    on a related note, @tbc i'm also just about to do this with my floors! very interested to see how yours turn out. are you having to seal any gaps and if so did you use wood slivers or the M shaped silicone filler?
