Well Mr P you inspired me into having a long hard look at all the bikes in my garage with a view to having a cull for at least 3 or 4 minutes.

Sadly that all went south last weekend as a nice looking Canadian Meile road bike popped up on FB the other day and no sooner had I seen it than it was in the back of the Tesla and on its way back to my garage. It's way too big for me and I have absolutely no need for it whatsoever but I couldn't leave it there could I?

Our Jimmy's Lotus has won a stay of execution..... he's pleaded a case with his Mother with such emotional blackmailing lines as "But Mum, it was a Christmas present!" :xmas-wink:

Moved an 20 year old Dawes Kara Kum frame set onto a mate . It had hardly been used .
Stripped it for parts . He has already rebuilt it for his grand daughter, so a good result all round .
Only 3 more to go .

Well done....
I've now reached the magic 20 mark gone today, (the intervention crew gave me that as my first target) the remaining 5+ might take a little more time...... I sort of like the idea of getting down to a healthy 30 bikes between the four of us.. just not sure which ones.... :facepalm:
