This kickstand is extremely helpful when the bicycle is fully packed front and back or when used with a child seat as the front wheel cannot tilt sideways. Lighting: • B&M D-Lumotec Oval Senso at the front • The front light has a selector switch to allow selection between permanently on, permanently off and auto. On auto the integrated ambient light sensor will automatically activate the light once it is dark. • B&M 4DToplight Multi at the rear. • The rear light can be operated as a dynamo powered back light or via the two included AA alkaline batteries.

Frame lock/immobiliser: Axa Defender RL frame lock with option to plug in an extra cable or chain to secure it to an immovable object. Lock comes with two keys, one foldable one normal. • I would prefer that this bike was collected so that you can see what you are paying for but if required I can post to you for an additional charge. Koga Trekking bars which have leather grips also come with the bike for no additional cost. For local rides I have fitted 28mm tyres but as advertised the Schwalbe tyres mentioned in bike description will also be supplied. This bike was recently purchased by myself to set off for a tour of Scotland but recent events in my life have dictated this will not now happen now or even later.
