It may help you along a bit with any sale if you state where you are as you cannot reply yet to personal messages (pm).

No problem. All you need is someone about 7 feet tall !

There's a hint there. If it's yours and it's how you ride it as seen in the pic, how tall are you ?

We know, and Ian loved it... but age and arthritic knees have intervened. Had it on eBay and Gumtree with no nibbles. We think it’s the frame size. Oh well.

Or it could be the price :-)
It does look huge. How did you measure the 25"?
