They've got proper mechanics in there who should know their stuff and thus should seperate the good stuff out from the chaff and ebay it. If they dont and you spot it then buy it and sell it on. Afterall they're already getting the kit for nothing and punting it back out without guarantee for cash so they're not losing out. They've also put their prices up with a organised system of charges so although still great for bargains they're not suffering financially.

agree with velo they still get their money- I was there a while ago and should have bought a couple of alpinestar stems to then punt on but in the end didn't :?

I have not decided, maybe put it on something late 80's such as my MF Alu Pro. I cant see myself getting any early 80's mtb gates within my price limit :roll:

Damn you Kaiser, I dont need any more bikes.................but your right it would look good on a tourer :roll:

I now have 18 bike frames, I must get shot of some, its getting ridiculous :lol:

Anyway, today I got out on the 456, didn't get out untill 5pm mind and got home at 7pm in the dark. I did however have a great time and discovered yet more single track, oodles of single track I didn't know existed despite living around here for 41 years now :oops: There is lots of narrow rutted, rooty, muddy single track in the woods behind Glencorse barracks which is only a mile from my work, fantastic 8)
Curiously Glencorse Barracks is where the local infantry battalion for you west coaster types, the HLI, is head quartered, weird :?
