It's much loved, but after two plus very happy years with it, I've decided to buy a brand new bike on the cycle to work scheme.

This Claud Butler is a really lovely bike, with loads of understated English style - it gets a lot of compliments and admiring glances and it's lovely to ride.
There's still LOADS of life in it; there are no problems with the frame and the gears are working well.

Ideally it would go to a home where someone who knows about bikes can bring it back to its true former glory! Whilst it's definitely good to go, it could do with the following:
fixing up of the paint job in a few places (see picture)
service/upgrade of brakes
saddle replaced (the concor one in the picture I'm keeping, but I'll put another one on for selling)
new pedal crank on one side (replaced in an emergency with inelegant solution!)

Q: Hi Vicky I will be leaving Cambridge around 4 so all being well wth traffic I could be with you by 5.30. Does that work for you? By: Richard Keen Posted On: 22/01/2014

A: Hi, sorry I should have said what time I'd be back - I wouldn't be home any earlier than 6 (definitely back by then, though). I can check later with my partner though who works from home and he could probably be around. We can probably leave at 6.45 rather than 6.30 too. Will you be able to access emails tomorrow? Or leave a number and I can give you a call, or mine is 0781 4492014. Answered On: 22/01/2014
