Guys,

I find myself without a bike temporarily ...

Does anyone know of a complete bike , ideally ready to ride , or perhaps just needing a service ? I'm too old for fixie and my trip home is all uphill so I definitely need gears. Best size for me is 25 inches. Don't want to break the bank but around £200 ?

Cheers

John

A big bike, this solidly built Verhoeven (Ishiwata tubing, made in Japan), suitable for riders with in inseam of around 94cm (37").

It's in great condition, paintjob is good, chrome too. Comes with a complete Shimano Golden Arrow groupset, with Shimano 600 brake levers. Rolls on a beautiful set of FIR wheels. Extra funky bartape too :)

10 speed, runs really well, only really needs a new front tyre, think it is a 25" frame. I'm 6ft and it fits me well lots of room to spare

Not sure if the Verhoeven is sold to Shake down, if not then I have this bike

Great condition bike for general riding and commuting to work.
Full mudguards front and rear.

I'm 6ft and I have to raise the saddle but would suit 5ft 10

Front and rear lights run by a dynamo

New Bar tape and brake blocks

Bottom Bracket stripped and re greased.

Ready to ride away

Runs smooth

£95
