    Cool, thanks. I had seen some concrete planters at the Barbican which I wanted to reproduce but thought you might need special concrete for smaller pieces

    Did you use any specific type of concrete for this?

    Apologies for the cross post but...

    My friend Miles' Omnium Mini has been stolen

    It's a sparkly purple Omnium Mini, stolen in Whitechapel this afternoon/evening

    Please PM me on here if you've seen anyone with it or sighted it locked up anywhere this evening

    Hi all,

    I have two frames for sale, with various components attached, and both come with wheelsets if the buyer wants them.

    First up is a small American made Trek 990, which I had modified by Sam at Stayer. Sam brazed on a seat collar, additional mudguard and rack mounts. The previous owner had a mount for top bull derailleurs brazed on, and potentially extra rack mounts on the rear as well. I painted the frame (badly) in a metallic blue hammered effect paint. The frame was modified following this, so it has some pretty decent surface rust, and some rust showing through the paint. The inside was treated with boiled linseed oil. The frame also comes with a 1 1/8 threaded headset, 1 1/8 stem, bottom bracket and odd-sized seat post.
    I'd like £80 for the frame please
    There is also a wheelset available for this: Vintage WTB hubs laced to some brilliantly beefy SunRingle RhinoLyte rims, with some dirty DMR Moto 2.2s attached. I'd like £40 for the wheelset.

    Some background: This was my dream bike for a long time, and I held onto the frame for a while until I had the money to build it up. Unfortunately, it's just too small (for reference, I'm 5'9") for me, and I had to max out the seatpost to get it somewhat rideable.

    I also have a medium sized Singlecross available, beater condition. A brilliant frame, super light for what it is, however it has a stupid proprietary headset standard and I just can't be bothered to mess around with it anymore. It has a decent cane creek attached, you will need to source a Specialized Mindset headset for it, or play around with spacers online to get it to fit better. There's plenty of info online I'm happy to point potential customers towards.
    It's in fairly ratty condition with plenty of chips and some bubbling, but no cracks or dents. I'd like £50 for the frame. Comes with ebay budget bars, Bontrager stem, new BB, seatpost collar, mini Vs and ratty levers, however it doesn't come with saddle, seatpost, or chainset. I can leave the chain if you'd like it though.

    Also available are some basic felt singlespeed wheels - I've replaced the bearings and they spin nicely now. Freewheels and track cog+lockring are attached, as I don't have the tools to get them off. You can have these wheels for an extra £20.

    In summary: Trek 990 £80 + wheels £40
    Singlecross £50 + wheels £20

    I'm in rural Scotland, so will need posting. Shipping is included if you buy frames + wheels, otherwise factor in an extra £10 for shipping on individual items.

    I think it would be fine - I run a slightly smaller carradice on the front without issues on much smaller frames. I use an old inner tube to wrap and compress the rear bag on my bike which gets pretty close to the tyre.
