:oops: guess i did :facepalm: but the madness i was thinking is i need a cheap hack bike while i source the xt parts for my raleigh technium build, and also a bike i can perminantly bolt a child seat to so i can take my little one out with me from time to time and as summer is coming my older kids want to ride their bikes to school, ok i guess there are better bikes up for grabs and some of you guys may say yuck to a carrera but it was the splatter paint that got me and the fact its still on original tyres and brake blocks say its little used and best of all £25 on a hack as got to be worth it even with the stuck seat post :D at least i will be out this summer now even if i dont get the raleigh finished :wink:

Looks smart. Gs was dire, but we can't be selective in our recall of history, and provided the triggers work the ensemble should function well enough. Looks lime a good buy for the spondies

Oh my god, I can't believe you just bought a carrera krapatoa. They were very reasonably priced for there spec back in the 1991 though, and very reasonably priced 20 years on it seems :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:
