If this type of topic isn't allowed in the area groups section then I apologise & feel free to move it.

I am looking to buy a new retrobike & if possible to help narrow the field down I wondered if any lincs area riders would be kind enough to let me have a short test ride any of the bikes in my shortlist below, beer (or cake) tokens can be exchanged.

Bikes I'm looking at are steel framed, size req'd is 17-18"

Kona Lavadome, Cinder Cone, Kilauea
Orange P7, C16
Specialized Rockhopper, Stumpjumper

Thanks!

I have an 18" Stumpjumper.

I've just got a Zaskar that will need a BB and headset supplying and fitting.

I'm sure we can work a deal based on this :lol:

If you can be arsed to come to grantham your welcome to play on my 94 cindercone , It's tiny though and I'd need to put a rear wheel in it . It's probably not set up to your liking either .

Perry Cheers for the offer, when you say that it's tiny what size is it?
