Sargent and Co publicly apologise

We would like “unreservedly apologise” to Adam the Pashley Tandem owner whose thunder was stolen from right beneath his nose.

I recently wrote that Rob rebuilt Adams’ tandem, this is not the case. Rob did some work on the B.B and it was in fact Adam himself that restored the bike.

Sorry Adam.

Nothing to do with us

The sun is shining and the flowers are happy

The worlds nicest bike stand

The blue bell is the sweetest flower
That waves in summer air;
Its blossoms have the mightiest power
To soothe my spirit’s care.

Watch out bike thieves about

As I am not a bike thief and I don’t hang around with any I am unsure about how they operate. What I am sure of is 2 of my friends had their bikes stolen last night (both bikes were in different parts of London).

I reckon as the weather is good robbers are well up for it, it’s prime selling season and they get to go out on the rob on a warm summers evening.

Each and every one of them

So people be on guard, lock it up somewhere busy, use good locks, use 2 locks, make sure their isn’t much space between the frame and the bike stand when it’s locked (so they can’t saw it without ruining the bike).

If you go down the police station you can get your bike security  marked so if the police get a big haul from a gang they can track your bike back to you, it’s a free service.

And biggest thing, don’t buy nicked bikes and parts, if no one buys them, no one robs them, simple innit.

To all bike thieves

Frames for Sale on Ebay

We have a few frames on Ebay.

Here is the link.

The Hetchins is on there…it’s a very pretty, I don’t want it to leave, I like looking at it. As you may well imagine it is drumming up quite a lot of interest, the Hetchins are coveted by collectors across the globe, a new to market Hetchins is big news in the dark world of Cycle Spotters.

All I can say if you do fancy a punt is watch out for those people with Bidnapper, they get you every time (I could get Bidnapper myself and play them at their own game).

Beware Bidnappers at large!!!
