All my listings are raising money for Myeloma UK. I am selling my bike collection and some bikes kindly donated by club mates to help keep research into blood cancer going and hopefully provide me with a cure!

This is a1980s classic steel Barron built from the legendary Reynolds 531 steel by Barry Barron. Barry was a well known frame building expert from Lincoln with a great reputation for quality and innovation across a range of solos, trikes, tandems, and tandem trikes. The bike has lived its entire life within my cycling club, and been well maintained and loved by its two owners me included. Its last outing was the 2015 L’Eroica which it handled easily of course. All in all, a rare but very usable classic bike! Overall the bike is in great shape with a few small marks here and there. The paint still shines strongly. Top tube is 56cm centre to centre, seat tube is 54cm centre to top. It has a full Shimano 8 speed groupset with 105 downtube shifters. Wheels are 105 hubs with Mavic SUP ceramic rims (showing very little brake surface wear), 105 front and rear mechs, 105 brakes, 105 brake levers, and a Stronglight 50/34 compact chainset. Saddle is E4P, seat post Kallin, stem is a nice Cinelli quill, and bars are Deda. New tyres fitted; Schwalbe Lugano 25mm colour matched.

Looking for £230 Ono. Prefer collection (near Newark, A1) or meet up although will consider postage if required. Bike is on eBay.

Still available,
If so there's no chance you would consider a part-ex for singlespeed On-one Pompino? Plus a bit of cash your way?

Also, what size is the cassette please?

Cheers,
Dave
