Fell off on snow. I'm OK but bike has bust footpeg and brake lever. Got a lift home but had to leave bike. RAC will pick it up and leave it dealers for £150. Any suggestions? I don't really want to ride it until bike shop has checked it out.

Friend with a van?

..or a short term van hire should be a lot less than £150?:mellow:...some places will do 4 hr van hire rates.

Hope you have found somewhere safe to leave it and locked it up securely. :winkie:

Good news that you are ok and that the bike sounds like it has only minor damage.

van

could hire a van i guess but how the hell would i get it in? Local bike place says they collect, and if it's going there anyway I'm thinking maybe cut out the middle man and get them to pick it and take it back? Have to leave it over night though..

Have a disc brake lock I could go back and put on - reckon it's worth it?

Don't know what it's like where you live

but in Kent you can hire a big enough van for an hour for £14, from B&Q. Not tried it but it's written alll over the van so it must be true.

Take two young hooligans and a hefty stick with you and the job's done. Check out bike theft on youtube. It looks really easy to do.

Seriously though, glad you're not hurt and I hope you get it rescued quickly.

Don't want to alarm you ...but that doesn't sound good...wouldn't take much for a couple of blokes to haul it into a van! :huh:

If you can't get it shifted yourself soon the RAC idea might not be so bad....otherwise it's 'fingers crossed' it will still be there in the morning.:mellow:

Every little helps ..but like the steering lock it won't stop anyone hauling it into a van...... a big padlock and chain anchored to something solid would be better.

Does your

dealer do recovery?

My local bike shop do recovery (don't know the price, but I'll lay money down they'd charge less than RAC).

At least you're in one piece though.
