First bike with any form of suspension for about 4 years, first ride will have to wait until tomorrow I've been out in the sun for too long getting angry at internal cable routing.

Re: Bargain Alert Thread

Not really understanding the overlap. One's a mountainbike and the other isn't. However, I do appreciate that On-One have been fitting drops to Bootzippers and punting them as some type of gravel bike.

Oh FFS I have no self control :lol: :lol: :lol:
I gave in, I wanted a bootzipper but I've got a straggler so there would be quite a bit of overlap.
Just need to find some bargain forks and wheels now.

Cheap scandal frames

Quite tempted myself, but I fancy the bootzipper.
Guess I'll just have to wait for the planet X crazy pricing structure to be in my favour.

Re: What you done t' your bike today

That is superb. I actually made a weird guttural noise when I saw the pic. The gumwall tyres pushed me over the edge. Orrsum bike. Thanks, I'm really looking forward to getting out on it, I had a straggler but unfortunately had to sell it a few years back to repair a van. It's the only bike I've ev...

Re: What you done t' your bike today

Managed to get an early finish from work, so I stripped my genesis and scrubbed everything clean and started to build up my new surly frame. Unfortunately fading light means it won't get finished until tomorrow.

Re: selling a bike, then regrets and buying another

Yep, sold my surly straggler around 4 years ago as I needed the money to repair a van, it's the only bike I've ever regretted selling and I've missed it ever since. I've just put an order in for a new straggler frame and can't wait for it to arrive, as nice as my croix de fer is it's just not a stra...

Hi Ian,
