I'm really struggling to get luggage to clear hoses and such on my mountain bike and I'm not willing to throw money at it to effectively put plasters over the issue so here goes. And at the end of the day it's a 130mm full suspension bike that's great at what it was made for and I'm happy with that
Looking for a cheap bike to build up for bike packing I'm 5'11, I've been looking at steel framed hard tails and even 90s bikes but living in Cumbria and most people not willing to post I'm struggling to make some progress, my overall budget isn't massive probably £300 to £350 I'm handy with spanners and competent with bike mechanical work so willing to buy a heap of parts and build up.
Was considering making a monster cross from a 90s steel framed bike
Would consider something like the one inbred etc with a suspension fork or rigid but ideally disc brakes to make it a asier for a bar bag to be fitted without fouling cantilever cables.
I do have my road bike for sale currently too which is a Vitus ultegra spec disc brake road bike if anyone would consider a trade/deal
Really want to get out there without being in fear of mangling my carbon frame lol
