Campagnolo Seat Post Clamp – FREE

Monday March 28, 2011

Wiggle ImageI have a Campagnolo Seat Post Clamp (worth £13) to give to anyone who needs it.

I bought it from Wiggle but bought the wrong size.  This clamp is for min 31.6 – max 31.9mm posts.

I’ll post it free to a UK address only.

The catch? Please donate at least £5 to charity via the link below. 

BUT before you donate, tell me that you’re going to (, I’ll reserve the clamp for you  and then I’ll let others know (here) that the Clamp is no longer available.

Money goes to the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association (which I cycled in aid of a year ago).

Trek – 2 Years Ago Today

Wednesday February 9, 2011

Two years ago today, 9th February 2009, I ordered my Trek 4300 from Evans Cycles.  Wow, that time has gone quickly.

I just found the PDF print of the web order on my USB flash drive yesterday whilst cleaning it out.  £349.99 was the cost of the bike and an additional £44.03 for the Cateye cycle-computer.  I picked both up from Evans at Gatwick a couple of weeks later.

This all reminds me that I still haven’t got the bikes out this year and that I’ve had an entry on my to-do list to give both bikes a quick service since the beginning of January.  Must get around to that… Perhaps this weekend… Hmm…


New Dahon Bikes For 2011

Monday January 3, 2011

Dahon have updated their site with the 2011 models today.

I quite like the Speed P8 but I don’t think my budget will stretch to a new bike this year!

I’m going to give my two bikes a quick service this month and get them ready for a year of increase cycling.  Both (Dahon and Trek) need a dust down and a quick mechanical check and then they’ll be ready for the road.

Must add that to my list of things to do…

Dahon D7HG – FOR SALE (not mine!)

Saturday March 6, 2010

A regular Dave On Dahon reader, commenter and friend is (unfortunately) selling his Dahon Vitesse D7HG.

Sad news but I’m sure that there’s a good home out there for it!

The photo below is the bike and it’s being sold on eBay, starting bid is £100.  Grab a bargain and nip over to eBay to place your bid.  This is a great bike and you definitely won’t regret the purchase.

He’s working out how he can pack and ship the bike if an International buyer wants to bid.

Good luck!
