Title: Secondhand racing bike wanted
Post by: Debbie Hatt on January 22, 2013, 06:02:29 PM
Does anyone have or know someone who is selling a secondhand racing bike?  I am quite keen to try out road cycling but am not too keen as yet to part with shedloads of cash!  Many thanks.

Might be worth asking Barbara Gambrill Deb, she did have one

Thanks Sharon, but I think that may be the one that Karen bought off her!  Thanks anyway though x

I am thinking of selling mine or swapping for a decent hybrid.

Thanks Andy, I'm a complete utter novice when it comes to bikes and equipment etc.  What type of bike is it and how much are you looking for?  Thanks.

Hi Debbie, not sure if you're sorted on the bike front yet. I have an old Raleigh Racer (spray-painted Raleigh Banana from the 90's) that is yours for £50 if you want it. I was going to put it on Ebay but you'd save me the bother. You're welcome to try before you buy and i can email you a couple of pictures. I don't think it would do long-term but might give you a taster. Don't worry if you're not interested. Cheers, Alex

Hi Alex - I had spoken to Andy Stevens at the w/end as he has one to sell and thought perhaps I should put things on the back burner as I'm marathon training at the moment and it's not a good time.  However, perhaps I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth so to speak.  Perhaps you could email me a picture at debbie.hatt@sky.com.  Thanks.
