Can I beg/borrow/steal or even buy an MTB please!!

Post by Pickers » Fri Aug 30, 2019 12:55 pm

As a result of events earlier in the year I sold all the bikes that could be ridden offroad, as well as road ones. I bought ebikes that have served me well, but they're off as well now. I'm therefore precisely one MTB short of actually having an MTB.

I've a couple of trips planned soon, in the event I don't find a suitable bike in the meantime is there anyone brave (or stupid...) enough to lend a bike on an "I bend it I mend it" basis...?
I'm around 5'8", normally look at a medium in most bikes. Based near Stratford upon Avon.
To buy, looking at something along the lines of a Pinnacle Ramin or another Ogre.

Great news back out riding. Would happily lend, but all my bikes are XL sadly. Those Marin Pine Mountains on CRC for £500 (dont forget quidco etc) look good value.
