- Writing a will: Who would you leave your bikes to?
I’m writing a will right now, taken care of all the big stuff, house, savings and suchlike. Wondering who I could leave my bikes to, I’m thinking distribute them around to various friends but the more I think about it the more I think that they are just unsuitable either because of size or style. Maybe a cycle related charity could make good use of them?
What would you do?Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
I’d leave mine to hora. I’m miles smaller than him so he’d think they’re the right size. But… BUT… He has to commit to them! He can’t change a thing! And he can ‘t sell ’em and buy something else on a whim. They have to feel loved, or I’ll send thunderbolts up from hell to flambé his netheregions!Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Ha, this is weird, I was mulling this over the other night. I have definite ideas where all of mine should go- should probably write it down! All off to specific mates that seem appropriate, think they’re worth more in the right hands than they are sold off. Oh and one of my brothers gets one, but not the other brother, sorry bro.
The only inconvenient one is that I’d really like to give my gnarrest bike to ChrisL, but unfortunately it’s a 15.5 and he’s 9 feet tall. Ah well, it’s the thought that counts- he can use it as a rollerblade.Posted 4 years agowillardMember
I’d not really thought about that. The last will I wrote (service one before deployment) basically said everything to the wife, but the frames are way to big for her and she’d only put a stupid saddle on them.
I think maybe a mate in Devon would like one of them,but the road bike is too tall even for him. Hmmm. Time to think.Posted 4 years agomolgripsSubscriber
I’d be tempted to leave them to STW so that any forum members who are hard up and can’t afford to fix broken bikes can use them.
I could leave them to my biking mate but a) they’re a bit big and b) he views my 7″ travel Patriot with a mixture of pity and disdain.. a bit like I view his singlespeed Mary-barred Pegasus.Posted 4 years ago
