    Ex demo GoBike X9 on ebay.co.uk

    Green GoBike X9 from C. H. White (Malmsbury) 625 or higher
    N.B. it's one of the earlier models which has the cables routed above the BB which gave big probs snagging on fold up

    Hey Chop,

    Maybe I'm getting too attached to my GOBIKE, but I believe you are overdoing the criticisms. When folding the rear wheel, gripping the cables along with the top bar of the frame eliminates any problem of cable snag.

    respectfully,

    respectfully,
    When a bike is advertised as new (just mud on tyres from photo shoot) I thought it would be useful to someone buying it to know it is not the last model. i.e. The cables snag, 625+ for a bike you need to hold the cables out of the way, do you also have 'to hold the front brake cable out of the way' in order to stop it pinching in between the fork leg and link? And , then there's the fact that even if they could track down the vapourware accessories, the web site stated that the proposed mudguards etc. did not fit early models.

    And for the price I paid, the support I haven't had, the spares & accessories that haven't materialised, & the non adjustable air shock fitted, the missing rear arm pivot........etc I don't consider that 'overdoing criticisms'

    If you 100% happy with yours, then I'm happy for you. Just don't hold your breath if anything goes wrong with it! LOL!
