Definitely, nimble. It's not the touristy feel tbh. I prefer it unladen. It's quick and responsive.

I decided, now it turns out foolishly to take it for a spin as it's such a nice day !

Well that didn't go well. I leaned the bike up to lock the door, it fell, hit the step and now is wearing a dent in the top tube. :x

I'm gutted. So now I find myself in a predicament. Sell it as is or strip it down and sell off the parts. I'll have to have a think. :(

I'm spitting feathers.

£295 cash on collection only or I'll sell it off for parts.

The wheels cost nearly that.

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with anyone riding a damaged frame, particularly if it came from me !

I've decided to split it and at least there's nothing wrong with the forks.

A trip to my m8s LBS tomorrow to break it all down and then wait for the dreaded £1 eBay offer. :sad:

And the lesson learnt is:

Don't take a bike out that you're selling!

So.

£250 payment by bank transfer only. Collection only.

If I don't sell it by 10 am tomorrow morning then it's the frame graveyard and part it out on FleaBay.
