Thanks Jez, is that somewhere between secondhand and One Careful Owner? I'm good for Nitrus Oxide at the moment.

As it says on wiki -

Actually this definition is better:

"Old, but well-cool bike stuff discovered hidden away at the backs of bike shop cupboards"

Yup, Jez's description is on the money! :D

A friend of mine has bought an old bike shop and is now trying to find the keys to get in. Supposed to be loads of "bike bits" in the cellar!
Keep you posted.....

I am going home ( France ) next week . some of the shop there have been in business for a long time , so really hoping to find some gems as well . it is a very rural area, and the retro madness hasnt reached it yet . A big club of cyclotourist ( old people with lots of money to spend on bikes ) means that there was a lot of nice bikes around in the early 90 .
