    Is the price of parts putting you off?

    Wanted Suspension forks with a 23/24 cm steerer

Anything that provides a bounce really and doesn't brake the bank - black in colour would be great - just something to give a little extra softness to gravel and trail...

    Any info on this Dawes?

The original Dawes Countryman had a 10 speed set up with the ranger having 15 speed - the one I’m busy first aiding has all suntour shifters, brakes, gear etc but a 3 ring shimano biopace crank - not sure if...

    Thanks for all the offers and ideas but I’ve picked up a Dawes Countryman that was gonna be binned - it needs a bit help and I know I won’t make money on it but it’s a lovely old thing with A Reynolds frame and forks and all Suntour gear ⚙️- I’m gonna have a go at a nice old cruiser bike packing...

    Wanted Mavic 221 rear wheel

    Hey up, I'm looking for as much of a rear Mavic 221 silver spoked wheel if possible. The one I have on my Claud Butler feels egg shaped when it rotates so I'm not 100% sure what is the problem.

    Peachy feedback

    ...recently bought some decals for a resto project on a Claud Butler. Graphics arrived spot on and very quickly and he has since been on the end of a message about how to do things correctly and where to go for other things. To a first timer in this game he's a steady pair of hands and very...
