    For Sale 1996 GT Bravado 20" *price reduction* or swap for smart trainer

    Hi All, Having finished this project, I've immediately got the itch to do something else, so putting the Bravado up for sale to add to the funds. 😬 It's a 20" 1996 with mostly period correct parts, save a 1x10 Drivechain which makes the bike a great ride by modern standards. Would be very simple...

    For Sale 2005 Cannondale R900 triple. VGC REDUCED TO £500

    Hi, Testing the waters with this one. I bought this last winter to go on the old turbo trainer I have, but having ridden it on the road for the first time last week, I think it's probably a bit big. Particularly as I have a frozen shoulder to need something short. I'm not likely to use it much...

    Help! BB advice

    I'm hoping the retrobike hive mind can help me. I recently bought a GT Bravado and some middleburn RS7 to go on it. BETD said I'd need a 118mm BB, so I managed to get a Shimano UN300 which slotted into the frame like a dream, but unfortunately is too short! 😩 I can't find a 122.5mm Shimano one...

    1996 GT Bravado - finished with new pics!

    Here we go again! I'd promised myself (and my wife) "no more retro bike builds!". But then on the day I bought my Malverns ticket, up popped a beautiful blue GT Bravado, (thanks Conrad). I was smitten and having previously done a Xizang, an RTS 1 and a few i-drives, I fancied a bit of GT steel...

    Gt RTS BMX!

    This may have appeared on here before, so apologies if it has, but it's a GT RTS BMX! I'm guessing these never made production?

    Complete Wheels - XT M730/732 hubs, Wolber rims, Smoke/Dart

    Hi All, I have had these for a while thinking I may start a project around them, but I haven't got the time to do it, so I'm selling them on. This is a fantastic early 90's wheelset complete with Smoke/Dart tyres which have barely turned a wheel. I will leave the 7 speed Shimano HG cassette...

    2006 Pinarello Galileo 57cm complete bike (NOS frame)

    Hi all, I'm normally here to talk retro MTB, but I'm staying into the other side, so be kind! :lol: I'm selling my Pinarello Galileo from c. 2006/7. The frame was NOS when I acquired it from eBay a month or two ago. As such the frame has done less than 25 miles in 14 years and is therefore...

    1993? Ozone/Bigfoot E-Stay complete bike

    Hi All. I bought this from a Retrobike user over 10 years ago for my wife, (she liked the colour). unfortunately it wasn't really that comfortable for her, so it has barely been used since. I've now built something that is more modern and she is riding that, so this one needs to go. So here's...

    "Retro Inspired" 2018 GT Zaskar

    Here's one to split opinions! :lol: I love my retro bikes but got frustrated at sinking loads of cash into beautiful bikes that I was then terrified to ride in case I broke/ruined them. Some will say I should have just ridden them, but I couldn't bring myself to do it after spending so much...

    1993 GT RTS 1

    So ever since my mate had an RTS back in 93 I've wanted one badly. I've had several i-drives and a Xizang, but never an RTS. So I started looking for a purple one and found the perfect frame but having paid top dollar for it I discovered it was cracked. I'd started buying purple parts before I...
