    Pro-Flex 755

    Not a clue on pricing, tripping over it so it's got to go....wee dent where forks swung round and a few chips, needs elastomers too as those are Land Rover bushings which are solid as flip but actually make for a decent rigid ride...overall good though, LX and Deore bits...what do yees think? Ta, P.

    £25 Kona Lewisham

    Thanks for making me think there was a Kona model named 'Lewisham' , put me in mind of the 1989 GT Wabznasm, that did.

    Kona Roadhouse

    No it's 'Gloss Raw' i.e. clearcoated over the steel, not painted - that's how you can see the golden fillet brazed smooth 'welds' joining all the tubes...*EDIT - may be better to email Kona and ask them what to do rather than have a go yourself, they may well have treated the raw steel with...

    Kona Roadhouse

    Yep bit of rust, and nothing to do with the fillet brazing - the clearcoat was prob chipped when the bottom bracket cup was put on...take the cup off, sand the rust off by hand (doesn't look more than surface really) then bung a load of aerosol clear coat over it, should be grand although will...

    Selle Italia Storica, anybody used one?

    Probably going to get one of these in honey today to replace my Spoon...only 40 squid in Planet X...just wondering if anyone has any experience with them as I can't find much online - Ta, P.

    Show me your self coloured bikes

    853 wing-lugged blue+white Claud Butler I overhauled in understated Ral 4010 Telemagenta for those inconspicuous surprise attacks...accidents will see you coming and get out of your way, so it's the safest colour you can get if you can handle the migraines

    Unrideable steering driving me up the wall...

    It's psychosomatic, you'll get over it....seriously though, get taking some paint off - doesn't look too bad there but could be worse underneath.

    Bright ideas for spreading dropout - not widening OLN?!

    If the wheel is straight as it stands now then I'd advise you to leave it alone...once you start bending it you may end up pulling it one way then pushing it the other to get it lined up again which will weaken and crack the steel quicker than you think. Just pull the rear end apart with your...

    Its been a funny old few weeks

    Welcome home, darling...the most sensibly-priced seller on the site, ye've helped me out afore by selling me a couple of silly-good bikes for peanuts when I had nothing - enabling me to get up out and off my own sorry hole, so thanks for that! We've got your back fella x

    Muddy Fox titanium....unused....

    No, Sinner - you're absolutely right my man! Mad-awful componentry for a frame that nice, agreed! For fear of also being burnt at the stake, I usually start off my auctions mad-high and come down oh-so-slowly until I get a bite...everyone else is at it, and I need to keep my hamsters in...
