I love the website Freecycle!
This morning I gave a load of the kids toys away to a newly established
childminder -
this evening I gained a Dawes Kalihari ladies bicycle!
Apparently retailing at £230.....for absolutely nothing

Splendid! I'd take a look at the angle of that saddle though, it looks like a recipe for "intimate discomfort" from here.

I had to drive over the bridge to collect this, so there's 1.50 in toll fees, then there's the diesel and wear and tear on the van (they live down a one track lane at the far end of Millionaire's Hamlet) - so not quite the bargain it may first appear! The woman who parted with it said it needed new tyres (because they were flat) - it doesn't even need new tubes! I cannot believe that people are giving this stuff away - she was apologetic about it not having a pump, but 20 quid helmet came with it too.

ladies tend to like an angled saddle Hari, they don't have all the "baggage" that we have.
