    Hi, I'm keen on the extras if you'd be willing to split? Which computer is it and what size are the tyres please?

    Have you any shoes or cycling clothing you're selling too?

    Thanks

    I will leave splitting extras for time being steve as they are more of a sweetener for the deal , tyres are 700 x 38 , comp is just a basic £10 job off the internet .

    Hi I am interested, how does this perform on the roads, is it fairly fast, have had a couple of mountain bikes which were awful, so have been toying with the idea of either a full blown road bike or one like this?
    Regards:)

    Well I am no experienced biker but prior to this I had a mountain bike with 26" tyres and before I retired rode to work in summer and as you say found it hard work .
    I chose this as my intended usage was to be mainly road/trails and in the short time that I have used it , there is a noticeable difference in performance to the better .

    Thanks that helps, I am fairly local to you so if needed could I come up and have a spin? Would leave my car for security:)
    Only problem I see is that I have owned several bikes which look much like the one in your picture, lovely looking wall art in my garage:rolleyes:
    I'd rather cut to the chase therefore and would make an offer of £250 collected, for the reason above I'm not looking to pay more, as no doubt I'll find myself selling with 20 miles covered for a loss:facepalm:
    I realise it's less than your looking for, but would it not be better to have £££ notes in your hand than a bike on the wall?
    If no good to you then GLWTS and thanks for your prompt response:smashin:
