To clown wheel or not to clown wheel, that should be the question..
Think i might stay away from those hylix forks
Currently in bits awaiting S/S parts
My current one. SIR.9
Best bike I've ever owned. Love it.
16" Bit small. Seat wasnt always that high.
My first SS. Bit harsh (for steel).
hardly ever ride with suspension anymore.
Off out all day on this in a mo..
Rejigged spec as the other one has gears and currently a rare strip-down sort out. Rode a nicely laid-back and fun-handling 29" HT for a while locally not long ago, good to get some perspective back after being on this kind of bike for so long. It was fun, I went faster in places but overall, just different. I was happy to get back on the rigid bike.
A couple of rigid bikes out in the hills. Love the simplicity of the rigid. Still ride suspension as well though.
My one and only bike - have yet to find anything i cant do on it 26" too
(sorry i cant work the damn photo thing)
Was gonna get a sus fork but finding it comfy enough as is
Mate lent me his explosif for asthon court yesterday
This thing absolutely flies around those trails! IT's got those crazy maxlight tyres on with minimal tread
I really want one now, Saw a frame on ebay this morning and went in 10 minutes
My rigid singletrack slayer; comes in at 25-26lbs depending on what tyres I'm running. Perfect second bike for winter / mud...
^^ That's lovely with the silver rims to match the frame
Rode my fully rigid Pace RC200 today as my mates Trek Remedy was broken & he was forced to ride his old hard tail, I thought it would be a laugh to ride the Pace, no it wasn't, it was 2 hours of pure pain, my arms & hands are knackered, how the hell did I used to ride that thing. I've ridden some pretty serious in Wales & Spain on that in the past, addmittedly it had RC35/6's in it back then, I must have been a lot tougher back then, never again will I whinge about lugging my 38lb Turner 6pack round the trails!
Your kidding, those Pace RC200 were know as the spastic bambi*

Not sure if it is the firm, dry trails or the fact that I was moving a lot faster than in the wet but I feel like I have been through the mangler after a fast blast on the rigid today. Good fun though.
