Have ok'd this with John, basically looking for people to donate any cycle tools for a charity. I will be teaching homeless people and some resettlement people all about cycle mechanics inc wheel building.

We got a stand from Lidl the other day, but need cycle tools and any small consumerbles, like cables/ scaffolding pole for lever bars/ a vice/crimps etc. A truing stand would be awesome as whould a straight wheel with good nipples (but worn out braking surface, so unwanted) as would any cheap tidy unwanted bikes for them to learn on.

If you could pm me 1st that would be great then if your items are suitable, I'll give you the green light to either post small items or take larger items direct to the hostel if your local. Any big items can be collected by them depending on distance.

Anything however small could and would be used
:D
