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.
How we 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

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 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.

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.
