genesis io alfine 8 with medusas. the heckler hasnt had a look in for weeks since i started riding it on my regular saturday morning epping ride. 32t front and 20t rear with a kmc ss chain and it hasn't needed a tweak.
2006 Kona Explosif with Alfine 8 speed. Great for winter.
Steel is real etc etc. The full suzzer has hardly been used since i put this together
Tell me about it adrec. Since I bought that P7 my full suss has barely seen the light of day. I can't see that changing any time soon
Now with KS Lev, Flows, Cut steerer and sorted seat angle
One gear, no squidge. Not a great photo.
Alfine'd 456 EBB prototype at the top of Tonelagee (aka backside to the wind) late one night.
And here's my old Blender in the snow to fulfil the winter criteria
Oh how I wish I never sold the Pikes, they felt perfect. Anyone want to swap their dual air u-turn pike for a coil u-turn Sektor?!
+1 for an Orange Pure 7 here.
I've already chucked a Minion DH up front and I've an HR for the back, unless anyone has any better all weather winter ideas?
The bike that was the first frame that porter_jamie's replaced but never got assembled-
because most of the parts went on to this-
which is my all year round bike.
Not strictly a winter bike but currently "winterised" with mudguards and probably the bike I'll be riding tomorrow night if I manage to get out with the MTB Berkhamsted group.
20ish pound rigid singlespeed, a lot of fun in the snow
Finally got round to sorting out the seating on my Blender. Think I might change the old BG saddle for a brown Spoon though.
Never really understand winter bikes or why they have to be hard tails. I just have bikes. They ride all year, in sun, dust, rain, mud and snow. But anyway....
Same tyres, chain, pedals, (no)mud-guards and even chain oil for winter as in summer.
Actually the pic here has Ignitor on the back. That's was just on there as the usual High Roller had a hole in it so awaiting replacement. Tried the Ignitor for a bit as had it lying around, but wasn't keen on it even as a summer tyre.
Think I might change the old BG saddle for a brown Spoon though.
Never do that.
Now sporting XT brakes, On one Stainless chainring & ESI grips.
EDIT, wow, my phone takes gash pictures
Never do that.
I have a bit of a thing for brown saddles on raw bikes though. But the black doesn't look too bad.
About to get absolutely filthy in an hrs time after i have my tea, sink what remains of this bottle of viognier and pluck up the courage to head out for a nightride in the rain wi a full hipflask and 5000 lumens of light on the bars.
another all year hardtail, lights on for winter.
nedrapier : i like your idea of lights, what sort of burn time do you have
That's my idea of a xmas tree
somafunk - burn time is indefinite: limited only by wanting to ride the thing more than 6 feet from the wall socket.
Well it's got one 26" wheel. Currently set up as commuter but tends to be the first bike I grab out the shed as it's so much fun.....
