Blimey charlie!?!! I've had some neat stuff from skips / dumps before but that tops the lot... I suppose the reason you get so much decent stuff is because you put a bit more time & effort into it, so i'm off down the tip right about now! :P

It's a great find you lucky fella - but - makes me wonder if there's been any bikes gone missing in the local roadie community lately.

Surely anyone who has even the smallest knowledge of bikes wouldn't just chuck this sort of stuff? Where's the frame? It must have been built up at some time.

Theres a lot of crashed bikes that just get dumped via the big Cambs roadie community. The guys that dropped this lot off were quoted as saying ' thats the last time that bikes gonna be ridden!' a

and anyway, surely it would be sold on rather than taken to a local recycling facility...?

Yup. and although it's hard for most of us to get our heads round there are folks out there who think of a bike as simply a tool to do a job. When it doesn't do the job as well as a new tool, then it has no value, is no longer worth spending money on and will just be chucked away.
