Bikes for sale

A selection of pre owned bicycles for sale by The Cradley Cycle Works.

Claude Butler in Green.

Photo031 Well, what do you reckon to this then? This Claude butler has come in for resale and it looks as if it would make a solid commuting machine for the coming months.

Aluminium 7005 frame with steel forks 21 speed shimano gears with combined rapidfire shifters and brake levers. 26 inch wheels with off road tyres

Avid  ‘V’ brakes

Frame looks to be around the 16″ to 17″ mark so would suit the more compact rider (well the wife’s jut tried it and at 5’3″ she fits it quite well at a low seat post setting so would be quite versatile as far as sizing goes.

Best of all, it’s fitted with a Rido mk1 saddle. These look like a Tesco cheap and nasty basic saddle but, trust me, are the most comfortable saddles around. Many long distance tourers have used them in preference to more conventional looking saddles as they sre, mile for mile, the most comfortable saddle you can get. Think of it as a Brookes for the 21st century without all the breaking in, leather care and tensioning polava that you get with the ‘traditional’ saddle but with all the comfort!

This will be checked over before sale but don’t forget, this is a used item and will obviously show signs of wear and tear. Why not e-mail me on cradleycycleworks @ gmail . com or ring me on 07564 003 864 for a looksee.

Opening offer £120.

Cant be fairer than that for a good solid commuting bike.

Trail/Hybrid based on Claude Butler Urban 500

Well, here’s another beauty from the Bowels of the Cycle Works!

Based upon a Claude Butler Urban 500 frame in Aluminium, this bike has been the subject of a wide range of upgrades to make it into quite a lovely all purpose bike, ready for the weekend jolly or longer distance commute.

Fitted with 700c lightweight 28 spoke wheels and all purpose tyres more suited for road and occasional trail/canal towpath use.

Avid ‘V’ brakes with upgraded multi weather brake blocks.

Stem with adjustable angle to make it one of the most comfortable bikes I have ridden for a long time.

Shimano triple chainring and wide ratio gearing: This bike will climb anything that’s put in front of it or makes the post work hill climb a doddle!

Carbon fibre front fork. Forget heavy front suspension forks weighing you down. This alternative is so much lighter and gives the bike a far more responsive feel yet still removes that road/light trail “buzz” from your hands meaning you can ride comfortably for longer.

In conclusion a wonderful all rounder that could just be every bike you want for day to day.

This will be checked over before sale but don’t forget, this is a used item and will obviously show signs of wear and tear. Why not e-mail me on cradleycycleworks @ gmail . com or ring me on 07564 003 864

Priced to sell at £200
