Can i borrow a bike please?
#1
I have sheared my rear axle in two and the replacement won't be in the shop for a week so does anyone have a bike i can borrow please?  I don't mind what it is (although the idea of having a blast on Mike's singlespeed does appeal) but ideally it'll be close to Canterbury so i can pick it up and return it (clean) easily

Thanks in advance you kind, kind people!

P.S. payment will be in the form of a pint or some homemade brownies
P.P.S. i will treat it very carefully but should the worst happen i would of course pay for any breakages!

Ive got one, its red and has 20inch wheels, you can also take it on peak time trains easily so getting to the spots should be easy.

You can borrow my Orange Crush. It is a 15.5 inch frame though. I've got to bleed the brakes again as well.

I have an 04 Enduro you can use.
There's nothing wrong with it at all Wink although I'm not that close to Canterbury and the shock is tuned for a more, ahem, portly rider!

Seriously, it's just sitting there in the bedroom until I get the bike shed sorted out so the Wife would be delighted to see the back of it for a couple of weeks Wink

hello matey, sorry about delay, been away and not seen this thread. You can indeed borrow the singlespeed but it is equipped with a ludicously short seatpost at the mo, despite our ET-esque statures I think it will be a bit too low for doing any real miles on. Although Andy has said that he is feeling unfit and so maybe there will be a more relaxed pace to this ride?


It's a bit diddy, the saddle is about 4" out of the frame at full extension and the frame is only a 16", I am in the process of getting a new longer seatpost but it is a weird size (26.8mm) which i have to order. And the forks are now much better than these naff ones.

Keep it foolish...

I have an 18" GT (I thinks its a GT?!) in the shed, I reckon it to be the same weight as a sherman tank though. If you want to borrow a back wheel (if this is of any use to you) then you're more than welcome to.
