I'm thinking of getting a beer scooter.. i.e a reliable newish bike i can tour the local pubs with, while I play with my other project cycles.

Does anyone know a retail outfit that sells NOS bikes? What I'm think of is getting a bargain 2005/6/7 model MTB.

cheers

martin

You could have a peek at winstanlys. Personally can't stand em but they have had old stock in the past.

Thanks, but should have said..

beer is important to me! I live a fair way from the good pubs, so I want a bike that just works.and is light.

My aim is to get a £1000 '06 bike for £500 or a £1500 for £750,

I'm happy to pay for quality and lightness.

Any of the big retailers CRC,Evans,wiggle,ribble etc can usually get better deal if you call up and haggle or even go into a store

I'll second Pauls Cycles – got my NRS from there a couple of years back (half price), even knocked a bit off a set of SPDs at the same time. Bike comes in a box and needs the bars putting on etc. But no different than any other mail order setup and the chap I spoke to was great.

Highly recommended.
