New Bike Pictures.

Post by trob6 » Thu Oct 10, 2019 10:21 pm

Well I finally got my Sonder Broken Road with the Prong fork and I'm very happy, its light (11.5kg) and goes like the clappers. I went to the Long Mynd and the Stiper Stones at the weekend to give it a test, did a couple of green lanes too, it was quite damp underfoot to say the least but the bike just ate up everything I rode over I'm quite sold on 650b plus now
There was even a horse!
I will be going to south Wales in a fortnight for a couple of days riding and a bivvie , cant wait!
Not sure if I've put the pictures up properly they just seem to be links but I followed the instructions, perhaps someone can enlighten me.

Nice bike :-bd

Did you try to post the pics from the desktop site or the app? I couldn't get the link to work using the app. You need the bb code pasted in-between the [Img] bits.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now

I am on already I joined a few weeks ago but I'm not much of a facebooker although I do like the page as it like this site with no silliness that sometimes takes over forums.

Wheels are the standard Sonder rumpus
650b plus and the tyres are wtb ranger 2.8 light and fast rolling and they really are!
Been trying to get the pressures right and have got 18 front and back at the moment which seems pretty good.

Yes it's 27.5 plus and 2.8 , I had a test ride on one and was impressed with the way it rode , I had the 29 inch wheels as well but i found them harder to keep going and im happy with my choice.
