My (ex-) Scott Yacora, rattle can paint job, to match the tag-a-long that it towed (hence the funny looking rack), sold along with the tagalong to a friend

My Saracen PowerTrax, currently stripped down to just the F&F, and for sale. Too small for me at 19" CtT and 20" CtC.

My 2009 Ridley Triton-T, built up with full Ultegra. Most deffo not for sale, I love this bike.

My On-One InBred 29er Monster Cross/tourer. built up myself earlier this year bought as a package from On-One and I added groupset, saddle, bars and dynohub. It is fantastic for long rides, very comfy (I did the first day of The Way of the Roses on it in September)

My holdsworth Avanti, now dated as an 1982, due to it being 531, and not 501 as later bikes were.

I got back into cycling in my mid-twenties, having had a bad accident involving me, my bike and a motorbike, when I was in my teens. In my mid-twenties I had put a load of weight on and needed to lose it all again. I went to my LBS (then called Blossomgate cycles) and bought a Marin, the model name I cannot remember. After 3 weeks I took it back to upgrade it to a Marin Pine Mountain. that bike stayed with me for the next 10 years, until times were hard and I needed to sell it to pay the mortgage. A year after buying the Pine Mountain I treated myself to a Mount Vision Pro. that stayed with me until about 18 months ago when I needed to sell it for the same reasons I sold the Pine Mountain. TBH I liked the MVP, but, if I had the chance, I would buy another Pine Mountain tomorrow, would have to be the sparkly Forest Green colour though....
