Re: Resale value of Btwin 500 Triban SE ( whole or parts )

Very helpful and sound advice from Cugel. I've not yet tried to sell anything on eBay but will do at some time in the future and will use that guidance as my blueprint for success.

I think you need to provide a bit more detail such as age of bike, condition, approx mileage etc. Also how much is a new model now?

Re: Train reservations

If you're a regular train traveller isn't it worth investing in a Brompton? Then there's none of this hassle of booking your bike on the train.Taxing, insuring and servicing a car would be half the cost of a Brompton before you've even driven the thing.

Re: Train reservations

Last summer I had a nightmare trip. My journey involved three separate trains to reach Pitlochry. I could not book online so made the reservations on the phone. Unfortunately they omitted booking the bike on the first (LNER) part of the journey. They refused to allow my bike on the train thus rende...

Re: Seat Reservations with Cycle spaces

Yes, I agree with that mjr. Trouble is, Cycling UK are now totally ineffective in bringing pressure and influence to bear on this very important issue. It's the reason I won't be renewing my membership when it is due in September.

The only reason the incompetent and greedy privatised train operators don't charge for bike spaces now is that they would be contractually obliged to guarantee the space booked. As it is now, the customer may well have booked and reserved a bike space but the train operator states that they are not ...
