Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. I'm new here and want to say hi and at least introduce myself before flogging a bunch of stuff. I thought it would be rude to just jump in and list stuff for sale when no one knows me. I am happy to wait the obligatory number of posts before listing stuff for sale
Quick background; I'm a long time cycling enthusiast, nothing major like competitions or races. I just like cycling. My wife had a bad accident late last year and she really used to like cycling (she bought tons of kit and at last count eight bicycles...) Since the accident she has not cycled much and definitely does not want to cycle on the road anymore. I'm slowly getting her back into mountain biking but if she doesn't want to ride anymore I won't force her.
She has expressed a desire to get rid of a few of her bikes as they're just taking up room in the garage (and study!) and I thought rather than putting it on gumtree or some other dodgy site I would prefer to engage with other cyclists and see if anyone wants anything.
Once approved (both by her, and by yourselves) to list the bikes and bits of kit such as rollers, spare pedals, cycling bibs, gloves, jackets and shoes (dear Lord the shoes! So many pairs of shoes!) I shall put pics etc on here and see who likes what.
Just to give you an idea, we're looking to sell her two cyclocross bikes (Cannondale and a Bianchi), single speed (Kona Paddywagon), and urban hybrid kind of thing (Cannondale Bad Boy) for a start. She wants to keep her Cannondale Supersix, and Cannondale Slice but they may also end up for sale eventually as i can't see her getting out on the road anytime soon. She just loves those two bikes and doesn't want to let them go.
I don't have pictures at the moment but the bikes are all a few years old and in very good condition.
Also to set everyone's mind at rest, the bike she had the accident with is NOT for sale as I have scrapped that and not reused any of the components on any of the other bikes.
Apologies for the long post. I shall do the normal thing and lurk for a while now
