For sale one much-loved, hard-working Workcycles FR8. We bought it about four years ago and since then it must have done our hilly school run over 1000 times, as well as many swimming pool trips and a fair bit of heavy shopping.
I need something a bit more nimble if I'm going to keep up. This is the 8 speed version with Nexus roller brakes and full family kit of front and rear carriers, front child seat, long carrier, rear cushion, foot pegs and guards.
We originally used it with a Qibbel baby seat on the back then briefly a G30 rear seat before ending up with the configuration you see here. The second backrest is our addition to give the rear passengers a handrail (and bell). It can carry three children in comfort and safety and if you're in Amsterdam, a couple more hanging on. Condition is very much used, but well looked after.It has stood outside for most of its life, as the FR8 is designed to do. The bike itself is unbothered but some of the bolts and fittings are showing rust.
I have tried to show this in the pictures. You can see where my kids' feet go as they climb on, but the paintwork is generally in good condition and the frame is completely sound. I couldnt get the hub gears serviced here and we were using the bike every day, so last year I replaced the whole rear wheel. The original is still here if you would like it, and in good condition except that the gears still need that service.
Later I also replaced the rear roller brake after failing to reassemble the old one, so the back end is all quite new. The kickstand I replaced early on.The original was a bit wobbly and they started fitting a wider Ursus stand so we did the same. There's a bit of surface rust on that too. Tyres and tubes are nearly new and all Schwalbe. The saddle is a bit worn but perfectly ok. The rear dynamo light doesnt come on but the front works so there's a bit of wiring gone somewhere. We never relied on those anyway as it's all dark country lanes round here. I have removed the fairy lights from the crate. Sale includes good Cateye lights, crate and all the fittings you can see here, keys for the built-in lock, and the spare rear wheel if you want it. I will have to remove the front wheel, turn the handlebars and do something with the crate, so a little bit of reassembly would be involved. The bike belongs to my business so VAT is included in the price and a VAT receipt can be given.
