    Those of you willing to try your luck for a larger model, they're at Phil Corley cycles in Milton Keynes.

    They come about this time of year, every year.
    Every team gets rid of the the team bikes at a price that reflects the use. Even British Cycling has a 2nd hand bikes page on the website.

    I was in there today, but managed to resist temptation. They had ex team Mavic Ultimates with tubs and cassette for £999. I had a good look and they seemed perfect. Not sure I could explain another set of wheels though...
