New Bikes for Spring

We have have some new bikes in over the last week which can be viewed here.  These include a Cannondale M500 MB from the early 1990s.  The quality of the frame is always outstanding on Cannondales with the trade mark smooth welds.  The paint work is in reasonable condition.  Its turned into a very light bike at 11kg.  Would be suitable for tall (6foot+) gentleman.

The Giant Expression came in as a donation from the skip.  It was minus the cranks which are filled with some Mighty cranks that we had lying about.  The Nexus 3 speed and hub brakes make this a low maintenance commuting bike complete with mudguards.  

Other new bikes include several Ladies Raleigh bikes.

Ken's folding Bike

Ken showed us his folding bike that he constructed from Columbus tubing some years ago. He made 4 all together with different features (gears, drop bars etc). This is the lightest at 15lbs and is quick 'n' nippy. Fold is useful for train and car journeys. Is it better than a brompton? its certainy lighter although the fold is not as neat.
