Overview

Quick Overview

The Elephant Bike is a classic British postal bike, saved from landfill and refurbished to top quality standards by a UK charity. The robust steel step through frame is available in a choice of two sizes and three attractive new colours. With easy to use 3 speed hub gears, drum brakes and great load carrying capacity, this bike is ideal for town shopping and commuting. Your Elephant Bike will show some signs of previous use, but will provide years of reliable cycling following its full rebuild.

When you buy your own sturdy town bike, Elephant Bikes will also donate a bike to their social enterprise in Malawi, Africa, where owning a bike can mean securing work, generating an income, or getting an invaluable education. You buy one, they'll give one, it's as simple as that.

Includes the wicker basket.

Description

Details

This bike has been kept in tip-top condition throughout its life as the postal service has a rigorous maintenance schedule. But to ensure that it’s ready to ride, from the moment you open the box (some self-assembly required); it has been fully refurbished just for you. It will still show signs of previous use, but it will give you the same years of reliable service as it gave to our posties.

Here's Elephant Bikes on how they prepare your bike:

"Each bike has been stripped down to its bare essentials; it is then shot-blasted and re-coated in your colour choice. Your bike is carefully re-built, using quality new parts where necessary. Finally it is professionally cleaned and ride-tested prior to dispatch. We cannot eliminate every sign of its age or previous use, but your bike will be checked to make sure there is no remaining rust or obvious flaws. We’ll also check that parts that are supposed to move, move smoothly and bits that are not supposed to move - don't!

Specifically we check for:
Tyre tread- at least 50% of original tread remaining, no splits, cracks or other damage.
Gears- will change smoothly
Brakes- tested for stopping power in wet and dry conditions.
Supplied with one rear red reflector and integrated pedal reflectors only.

Elephant Bike Specification:
Frame - durable steel 22 or 18 inch step-through design frame.
Gears - 3 speed, trigger shifter, low maintenance hub gears. Heavy duty steel cranks.
Brakes - tested for stopping power in wet and dry conditions.
Saddle - Designed, padded and sprung for comfort. Quick release saddle adjuster on the steel saddle post makes it quick and simple to swap users.
Wheels and Tyres - 26" rear and 24" front alloy rims with 13 gauge spokes with 1¾" tyres.
Load Carrying - 20kg on rear carrier. Additional 20kg if you select the optional front carrier.
Overall weight approx. 23kg

Which Frame Size?
Choosing the right frame size for you depends on your height, inside leg measurement and your reach. You are welcome to phone us on 01543 888494 for advice, but as a rough guide:
The smaller frame is recommended for riders with a 27-35 inch inseam (inside-leg), and the larger frame for riders with a 31-40 inch inseam. Riders sized 31-35 inches can adjust either frame to fit.

Delivery
Price includes free UK delivery but please be aware there are surcharges for certain postcodes.
The following Scotland postcodes will incur a £25 surcharge:

Your Elephant Bike will arrive boxed and carefully wrapped, but getting an elephant in a box is never easy! To make it possible, we turn the handlebars in-line with the frame and we remove the pedals (please don’t worry; we will include them in the same box). We’ll give you, free of charge, some handy little bike tools so you can easily fit the pedals and turn the handlebars and attach the front carrier if ordered… then you’re ready to ride.

On completion of your order we will email your registered account email address to confirm your order and to provide an estimated delivery date. We normally deliver within 14 working days of your order. If you require delivery for a certain date please contact us BEFORE placing any order so we can confirm your delivery date. Your Elephant Bike will be carefully wrapped and packaged and delivered to your door to UK mainland addresses, please contact us prior to ordering if you require delivery to a postcode where normal delivery exclusions apply. We will provide you with tracking information and you will be required to sign for your delivery."
