The Rose St markets now sells vintage bicycles. Amazing how 20 year old junk is now ‘vintage’ and hence valuable. The aesthetic reinterpretation of old bikes is most interesting. I mean no criticism of the Rose St markets, but if you want an old bike without the hype, you could also try the CERES Bikeshed.

    Beware to all buying funky, rattly step-throughs. My “vintage” bike, found in a council pick-up and repaired, gave me a nasty shock last week when the entire crank fell off. Hilarious because I was fortunately on a quiet street. Not sure what would’ve happened if I was closer to work.

    Ceres is a great tip, as is BAC Bikes if you’re south of the river. Guaranteed to get something roadworthy at a good price.
