Closet bike

Hello forumeers.
I have always had a bike of one type or another in the loft but never really use it though I was keen when I was a younger chap. Always love messing with bikes but I'm a bit out of date these days.

Just the other day I bought a bike from a charity shop as a fixerupper - couldn't resist it. I am having a problem with the Shimano gears (6 speed) - there is no B tensioner screw and I can't get the derailleur clearance to 1st gear that I'd like. Any suggestions? it is a Tiger Foldaway.

Seems a fair bit of new techno but the principles remain the same.

Yeah man. The frame geometry, for example, is the same as back in 1940. Toodles.

Well here I am again.
After I fixed up my Tiger Foldaway I moved house and then sold the bike to buy a very costly 20" folder with disc brakes and full suspension on an alloy frame. I liked it, made some changes then for various reasons I sold it but I felt lost without a pedal bike so here's the thing - I bought another Tiger Foldaway cos I liked my first one so much!! Furthermore. I prefer the Tiger to the other Rolls Royce type of bike - weird eh!!
