Hi all -

I've finally decided i could sell my spare TCA-5. It's the big one, the 5 cup model, which Square Mile etc don't stock. I find this a perfect size for sharing (between 2 or 3), or very usable for 1 if you like a mug of coffee!

It's in perfect condition, only used once! Like i say, it's a spare - i have another which I use day to day. It has the burner, hario measuring spoon, and cloth filter with it - these have all never been used. The box is a bit tatty, but the contents are all perfect, looking brand new.

Selling because I need the space and the cash, to be honest!

Would like £75 for it, delivered. If you're within 40 miles of Oxford, let me know and I could maybe bike-courier it to you. If you can collect, that would be even better!

It'd make a fantastic gift for a coffee person, or even just for yourself! Thought I'd offer it here, as i know someone on TMC could get the best from it! :)

Um - I cycle, perhaps too much. For transport and for fun and exercise - not competitively. I sort of think bikes have the potential to change the world (not alone, but they're a necessary part of the equation).

Oh, and I do a bit of bike commuting, and weekend cycling. Did my first sportive last Autumn - 100 miles in 6.5 hours, which I was pleased with.

Anyone else on TMC into cycling?

Sorry about the Thread hi-jack, but if the moderators can do it ... so can I.

TMC= Too Many Cats :wink:

GeorgeW used to be big into cycling, in any case. So was I, but unfortunately that was back in the dark ages when I was into triathlon and marathons and bicycle racing. I loved biking, traveled over a good bit of the continent on my bike that I built myself out of a Koga Miyata touring frame and Campagnolo shifter, brakes, etc. I found that biking AND running were too much for my knees and my physician made me give up one or the other and I gave up biking (on a more serious level). After I had my hip replacement (unrelated to biking or running) I have not been able to do much biking as I have trouble mounting a bike. I would need to get a ladies bike and my vanity has kept me from doing that. I'm going to find a way this spring, however. I really like biking and I live in a pretty good area for it, too.

bruceb: This is very off topic, but what about the newer mountain bikes? Some of those have quite low frames and may be easier to mount. Something like this, perhaps?

I ride a "ladies" bike (stepthrough frame, anyhow) as my everyday town bike! It's fantastically practical. Just a bit heavier and more flexible than a diamond frame. But it lets you cope with panniers and a trailer, which a diamond wouldn't be much help with.

My faster bike is a diamond frame though. :)

Hi James

I would be interested in a TCA-5 as my TCA-3 leaves my office mates wanting more...
However, 75£ is the price new from HasBean (admittedly, it doesn't include
postage, but I can order it when I order greens and the price of postage remains
the same...)

Hi Jossy -

You're quite right! I honestly didn't check Hasbean to see if they sold it, or if so what the price was. I just did a search for "Hario TCA-5", and came up with ... _TCA5.html who had it at £89.99.

How did I forget Hasbean?!

Anyway - and Steve might be interested to hear this - when I searched "Hario TCA-5", hasbean didn't show up anywhere in the results. And Google should show me Hasbean MORE often, if anything. :?

OK - so that being the case - i could go a bit lower - say £10 off? It's just sitting around in its box here...

Hmm, wondering if we should create a separate bike thread. (if someone wants to feel free)
I mountainbike and motorbike. Personally more of an XC hardtail fan. I had a bit of a mammoth rebuild last year, changed everything except the frame, seatpost, saddle and cranks... I never worked out the total cost... on purpose :wink:
I know of a few other TMC members that enjoy lycra... I'll leave them to out themselves :wink:
