Thanks in advance!

I am also looking for insurance. But I just want to insure my house contents as I live in the most burgled area of the uk.

Anyone got any decent insurers? Assuming my bike and whatnot will all be covered too.

There's no specialist trials bike insurance, that's for sure.

Also - specialist bike insurers are just crooks.

Stick to adding it to a home insurance policy.

Your uni halls should be covered with a room policy. Mine was covered up to £15,000.

I had contents insurance with Endsleigh throughout my time at University, which included bikes up to £400 (I think). They seemed to provide a decent service when my phone got smashed.

Mines around a similar size. But just found out the halls I'm staying in has indoor bike storage so depending on how safe it is I will just put it in there.

Mine was the same size but didnt have the worktop/desk thing. I just gave the cleaners a box of sweets at the start of term so they didnt mind.

Move the chair by the desk and looks like you can fit 2 or 3 easily.

you could always stash it under the bed if there's room. Undo the stem and it'll go nearly flat.
