Bikes for sale

in Daily updates, Oxford

For too long, the Wadham College bike shed has been seriously cluttered with seemingly abandoned bikes. Now, bikeless residents of Oxford have an opportunity to benefit. I got this message from the college a few hours ago:

We’ve arranged with College to have a mass cull of the old bikes littering the bike shed, hopefully with a huge auction of old bikes in the back quad on Saturday 7th Week / Sunday 8th Week. Quality bikes that just need a little love and repair will be sold from as little as £1 each, so tell all your friends!

People looking for a decent hybrid at a good price should also consider buying mine. It won’t be going for £1, but it will probably sell for substantially less than I have spent on buying and improving it.

Who gets the proceeds from the auction?

Get a bike box and ship your bike to Ottawa, you will need it.

Wouldn’t almost any bike have saleable parts worth more than 1 GBP?
