£2900 gift voucher
Bit of a strange post this but I had a bike stolen last week and have now been told via my insurance compnay I have £2900 to spend on a new bike.
I have 3 already and the one stolen was excess in my collection so not really after anything new, so this is a great offer.
I would rather have the cash but cant I have to purchase a bike or 2 bikes or components etc so I am just seeing if there is anyone looking to buy a bike worth this value – from me brand new but at a discounted rate.
I.e you want a scott genius 740 650b – prices at £2399 but only have £2000
Ill buy it and sell it on to you for £2000 CASH
If anyone is interested please do PM me email is in profile
This is 100% genuine no scams involved I just need to swap the “gift voucher” for cash

Strange they’ll give you more credit than the bike was insured for. Trouble you’ll have is unless you can transfer the Wheelies credit to someone else (through them) then you’ll get warranty issues that will scare a lot of buyers away from bargain bikes of that value (a warranty is worth more than £400 to me on a £2k+ bike). If you can’t transfer it then I’d be expecting around £2-2.3k for credit for you to buy a bike on someone else’s behalf.Posted 4 years ago
Yeah, wheelies valued it against the spec i gave them and although listed on PRESTIGE policy as £2000 which is what i originally paid for it before re build, wheelies pushed for the full spec value.
Im looking at getting the 2014 rockhopper evo £1000 to just sell and giant trance 2014 650b to re sell.
Seems like a sound idea to me
alternatively if someone wants to give me £2500 they can have their pick from the website upto 3k 😉Posted 4 years agocarlosMember
Wheelies couldn’t supply me with a replacement frame and instructed M&S to pay me. No problems
This, bike was covered on M&S at the time and they handed over pretty much all of it straight to my bank account.
Could have done without the myther of it being stolen in the first place but it was dealt with very swiftly and smoothly from claim to payoutPosted 4 years ago
There are many various things I could have done different better etc.
Of the 5 sizes available Large is the middle.
I have always had large bikes and never had an issue selling them so i thought Large would make sense.
Re the warranty, nothing will be coming registered at all to me – have checked this and they come blank, for me to register on receipt from what Wheelies have told me – this is common place for them as many people just get a bike to sell rather than keep.
The warranty will be with receipt with manuals all in the box when posted to the new owners.
Also these are listed on the Ebay and have over 75 watcher on each so fair amount of Larger riders available.
All im trying to do is raise the cash but thanks everyone for thoughts and advice 😉Posted 4 years ago
Yeah the Crave over the Trance, LBS shop said buy stuff you would like to own as I know what I like and they know I have good taste ha ha
I have never liked the Trance’s or Giants in general so opted away from it, plus everyone is starting to join the 29er revolution and not overly convinced that 650b will last!
My opinion anyway but im sure a lot of people will object.
With reference to the guy who has removed the posts from the FS forum they are on there way to me today so yes they are owned! and I didnt post an ebay link just mentioned that they are on ebay! Thought that was ok in the rules?Posted 4 years ago
