    We bought a matching pair of Raleigh Evo 7 folding bikes for using in the motorhome earlier this year and have used them twice and we were very happy with them, BUT we then bought a puppy and have not been out on them since - can't take the dog on the bikes! So we are selling the bikes and keeping the puppy.

    We paid £199 each for them (total £398) from Halfords and are asking £300 for the pair.

    Details are:
    Frame: Lightweight alloy folding frame
    Folded dimensions: 45cm x 78.5cm x 70.5cm (WxLxH)
    Gears: 7 speed Shimano gears
    Brakes: Aluminium V-brake
    Wheels: 20" Alloy rims with city tread tyres
    Finishing Kit: Raleigh Comfort Saddle, PVC dual density ergo grips, mudguards, rear carrier, chrome seat post
    Weight: 13.7kg
    Chainset: 3/32"X46T Steel Chainring Silver
    Forks: 20" Steel Fork
    Frame Colour: Grey
    Tyres: City Type
    Saddle: Raleigh Comfort Saddle
    Seatpost: Steel 27.2X400mm
    Stem: Folding
    Suspension: Rigid
    Pedals: Folding
    Rear Brake: V-brakes
    Rims: Alloy
    Front Brake: Alloy V-brake
    Gear Shifters: Microshift Twist
    Frame Material: Alloy

    We are based in Manchester for collection, but if needed we can send the bikes out using a courier - but you will have to pay the carriage cost - wont cost much as we have business accounts with Interlink, Uk Mail and Parcel Force and will sort out the cheapest carrier.

    :Sad:Scek I hope you are successful, but I sold mine earlier this year and only got £120 for the pair ...... I tried everywhere to sell them ... same as yourse and both mine were still brand new ... had the polythene wrapped round them.:Sad:

    No-one on ebay or anywhere seemed prepared to pay out. I think another well-posted funster got £130 for a pair of theirs ... used but excellent condition.

    Hope you have more luck.:thumb:

    You could always do what we did, two puppies, two folding bikes and a "doggyhut" trailer, the dogs soon get used to it.

    Folding bikes

    Just seen this on the forum. I'm assuming by now you've sold the bikes. If not please let me know. Will the bike be big enough for a 6 foot 2 inch man?

    Best wishes

    Grh54, you may be better sending a PM (private message), otherwise you will be waiting to see if the poster notices your post.

    You just clic on the posters name on the left and clic send message.

    Good luck.

    In my experience people want a bargain. If there are no takers it is probably price related.
