How tight is that?

You get some right tight-fisted people out there. Here is an example of how mean spirited people can be.

I have started to have a bit of a clear out. Not in the biological sense I may hasten to add, but a bit of a Spring clean of the shed and attic. Hence I have set up the following advert on e-bay:


Wheelset no longer needed after upgrade on a town/hybrid bike.


They still run ok and have not got many miles on the clock, but have the wear and tear from the potholes and bumps on today’s roads.


Good enough to have been kept as spares they are going out after a Spring clean the shed. They are too good to be binned, but too bulky to be kept as spares, as I am becoming a fair weather cyclist and now also have another bike.




Rims: ETRTO 622×20 6061-T6 700c


Cassette: Shimano MF-TZ31 14-34T SUPER-LOW MegaRange


Hubs: Standard issue GIANT with Quick Release Skewers


Please note that these are collection only.


Now the bidding has been set to start at 1 pence and there is a big banner showing the charity logo for Red Nose Day saying that 100% of the proceeds of the sale go to the Red Nose Day appeal, yet one person out of the 11 people that have viewed these wheels so far has put it on their Watch list!

Whaaaaat? There is some tightwad out there somewhere who is waiting to jump in last minute and get a penny bargain? Listen up whoever you may be. They are a cheap pair of wheels and a good deal if you can get them for a few of quid, even if you just salvage them for spares. However that is not the point. Get into the spirit of the auction will you please!
