    A Classic Mistake?

    This is a sad tale and a warning to all... I recently sold my '96 Marin Bear Valley mountain Bike. Much as I liked it my back was suffering even with a shorter stem. So I decided I needed something a bit more sensible. The good lady was away visiting family and I was home alone with a bottle...

    Sold ***SOLD*** 1996 Marin Bear Valley SE

    I've been informed I've underpriced this so I have amended it. 1996 Marin Bear Valley SE. Some scrapes and chips on the frame but otherwise good condition, original except Saddle and tyres. Not used since September 2020. To be honest it's a bit too big and streached out for me now. I need...

One of the problems was the front (right hand) brake lever adjuster was the wrong type and where it's been forced in the threads were stripped in the body so a replacement is needed. Didn't want to spend a lot, looked on Amazon and found a...

    Raleigh Moonrun (AKA The Skip Bike)

    I know there's not much love for these old low end Raleighs, but here it is anyway. "Free Bike. Rough but a shame to throw it in the skip" the ad said. It was only a mile down the road so... Nearly got a Hernia getting the bottom bracket out and seatpost was a right royal pain in the bum...

    Seatpost Woes

    I rescued a Raleigh Moonrun from being dumped in a skip because I wanted a cheap project while on part furlough. It had been sat outside for a long time and the seatpost was solid and down as far as it could go. The first course of action was to soak it in penetrating fluid then try it...
