    I have a road bike frame/fork and a few other bits which are all usable. Other than taking them to the tip/recycling point, is there anywhere that could make use of them?

    I just don’t want to take to the tip unless I have to.

    Cheers.

    there are a few place around the country that will take bike parts and re-use them to build bikes for folks who can;t necessarily afford brand new – they also allow people to learn new skills building bikes up. Where are you based?

    Tips near me (Leeds) will take decent stuff and sell them in a shop they have in the main one, assume money they make goes back into the council.

    My local tip has a drop-off point for bikes / bike bits that are then collected by a local bike recycling charity

    As well as the charities that collect/fix/sell bikes to the less well off here there are charities who also / instead  send old bikes/parts over to Africa. One of them –  ‘Re-Cycle’ –  has drop-off points in some branches of Halfords.
