Anyone split up from their Wife and left some bike kit behind?
Shopping around for some pedals on fleabay the other day, I came across a listing for an odd-box of bike kit including pedals etc, which was old kit left by ex-husband by all accounts. I interpeted this as being as the divorce had obviously happened, a long time had passed and this was just needed out of the house…we agreed a price, paid and a shoe box full of bits duly arrived.
Once I’d opened it though, it occured to me that this was some poor chap’s bits and pieces that I’d bought, because for whatever reason he hadn’t collected, or for all I know, been allowed to collect.
I would like to try and re-unite the owner with his kit, but realise this is a long shot – does anyone know of who this may be; there are bike pumps, gloves, SPD cleats & pedals. I only paid £16 including delivery, thinking that I’d just flog everything apart from the pedals I wanted and make my money back…however, seeing it I know this is just wrong; not sure why it didn’t occur to me when I bid – going through that moral self-examination at the moment!
I won’t list the makes & models etc unless confirmed by anyone claiming to be the owner, but the key is that there is a pack from Evans cycles for a Felt bike in there – confirming details of this bike with description of the kit is enough for me.
If you, or know anyone who’s this kit may be, please drop me a line so I can re-unite them with their stuff; I don’t want anything for the stuff, but if it needs to be posted, a contribution to cover postage would be welcome.

where do second hand bike bits come from? visiting eastwood tip some years ago, i spotted a frame, it looked ok so asked the tip bloke for it. tuned out to be a Terry Dolan frame with a mixture of campag record and veloce, no wheels. it looked like it had been in a crash, had a scrape down the saddle and on the crank. i had it checked and put some wheels in it and still use it. i often wonder where it came from, any ideas? oh yes hebden bridge areaPosted 5 years ago
