my bike's almost done!
bike forum ffs
Nice. I like mine though.
Its looking seriously BMX-like. How much is it going to weigh? I assume a lot less than my jump bike.
I haven't had it up on the scales yet, but it's kinda heavy. I think it's pushing 18kg/~36lbs right now and I still have to fit the saddle, saddleclamp, bar and rear disk caliper. oh, and I want other grips too. and hookworms
Nice - got the clothes to match?
Will's the lad with the armor plate I need shin guards, elbow guards and a decent helmet. the XC stuff I've done before only warranted light gloves and a race helemt.
Heh, I've not got any pics with my armour on...it does look very silly, though I'd be dead if I hadn't been wearing it when I went downhilling.
You need baggy jeans, elbow guards, shin pads, and a skate-style helmet...a Giro Semi-MX is quite good if you can get it. And remember, the armour goes under the clothes. You look more 'core that way.
my gf claims I look like a teddybear no matter what I wear
Not when Teedles is sat on it.
it only hurts because its true
im still on my old 2002 Kona bike, does me well for falling down hills
you ever gonna ride it teedles, or is it more "real life art" kinda thing
I actually rode it yesterday! just to see if it wouldn't instantly fall to bits mind...not having a saddle on it is a slight hazard
it's heavy as fook....at least 5kg more than the XC bike oO
This is mine...
Heres mine -
God help me if she sees this
Give it back though. I haven't finished mounting the rear shocks.
Or some pish.
you *will* be dead when she see's that
I need a bike. Need to lose weight. Not now though.
You see, I did think of that joke, but Trem is obviously way braver than me to a) post a pic of the wife sleeping and b) refer to her as a bike.
Bollocks removed at dawn for you Trem boy!
Here's my bike
Your bike is a thin version of Tom.
Not a big fan of that style TDC, although it looks nice
Ginger is a very special club, and you're not invited. :kissit:

TdC...isn't that fortunate? *books sofa*
you're welcome to crash out on my couch if you want I think I actually have the weekend off then too
I'm gonna buy a bike!
I've got a spare...your for £300 plus postage.
I wanna get one but none of that full suspension crap. And I don't want grip shift gears. Cycling is easier than walking. I might engoy taking the dog out more
What are good internet shops to look at? I'm not an enthusiast so I don't need special crazy bikes made of the same metal you can find on the moon.
£399 Inbred.No suspension, but if its just for around town, you don't need it.
You can get bikes cheaper, but this is a good frame, with good bits on it. Normally it retails for £699.
