I’m on the scrounge!
Two of my nephews are starting to get into a bit of biking accompanying yours truly for a few rides and enjoying it - in particular the mud! However they are riding supermarket specials and now want things like disc brakes and gears that work…! My sister is mid-divorce so money is scarce.
I've managed to get a bargain Giant terrago disc for one of 'em but the other now wants a new bike even more.... My sister is also hassling me to find her a new bike to go out with them!
So anybody got anything of use in their shed they want rid of? Old complete bikes? Frames? Bits? Anything might be handy.....
Nephew without a bike is 11 so a small adult bikes will work. My sister is quite tall so probably a medium? Free or dirt cheap is best…
I can pick stuff up / pay postage / fettle / bodge.

PS The youngest of the two was impressed with Sam Pilgrim when I took them to Bike Radar .... he then got his skateboard little plastic ramp thingy out and proceeded to crash attempting a jump on his bike and smashed his helmet in half! So maybe roughty toughty jump/freeride/downhill stuff would be good?
