It's the dark time of the year, and I have piles, so riding my bike(s) is out for the moment. Instead, I have been working on a design for a friend for a semi-recumbent folding trike. This is a toughone, with a lot of tinkering involved, but what struck me was the simple validity of Mike Burrows' design philosophy when building recumbents (and any bicycle, by extension) that the best way forward was the FRT, or Fat Round Tube.
At Bicycle Business in Lancaster I sell second-hand bikes. Nice second-hand bikes. I believe good quality used bikes are better than bottom-of-the-range new bikes - more enjoyable to ride and moresatisfying to own. Classic steel road bikes, sturdy British tourers, elegant city bikes, retro-MTBs - they're the sort of used bikes I have for sale. All the bikes in stock have been carefully refurbished, serviced and cleaned, with any worn parts replaced.

Ihave been a keen cyclist, in and around the beautiful Trough of Bowland, for 28years and I have always serviced and maintained my own bikes including building them from scratch.
