I can get to Hook, provided pickup is during a working day.

I can also deliver to Devon, same rules apply.

small frame, but listing says 24 inch wheels - really?
looking at the photos I would be hard pushed to say one way or the other.

Good on you, I couldn't get my last minute bid in as it was lower than yours. I'd be interested to know if the toptube actually is 58cm as I was told - it seems very stretched out for a 15.5" frame?

Cheers
Matt

The lady who’s bike it was had it made for her by Dave Yates as part of a race team for a company called Jelly Bean?? Back in the early 90’s. Were Jelly Bean a manuf of mountain bike accessories? I’ll have a measure up when I get a chance
