    I’ve been offered a good deal on a charge cooker frame to build up. Does anyone have any experience of them? or own one?

    I’m a big fan of steel frames and they seem to get a pretty good write up.

    My brother had one and raved about it.Don’t think you can go wrong if you’re into steel anyway.

    Have you seen this…..

    I know a good rider can ride any bike well, but it looks like a pretty capable bike.

    +1 they’re ace fun. I’ve found they are at the best when charging through woodland singletrack, not the most agile but then my build is heavy.

    I’ve just put a rigid fork on mine so am looking forward to using that when the weather gets a bit better round my way.

    Oh yeah, you probably won’t need any spacers. Mine came with a negative rise stem, might be a good idea, plus I think they look kinda retro which fits the bike.

    anyone know the location of the singletrack in the Doney vid? looks South Downsy to me.

    Nice to see the Purbecks video there 🙂
    Haven’t ridden over there for a while since i sold the MTB and concentrated on running and road.
    Judging by the fact i can’t see the hills out the office window because of the low cloud, i would imagine the Franks Tank trail at the end of the film will be looking somewhat different today 😕

    Corfe to Charminster every day is a bit of a trek too. Broadstone to Tower Park is bad enough 😉

    Yes it is the south downs. I bet he didn’t get permission to ride and film in that quarry.

    Bought one on here, 29er, rigid & steel. Love it, blasted round thetford & swinley. Had to change stem length when I first got it but it loves singletrack now. Running a 65mm stem & 760mm fatbar. Saving for a Ti one now as I had a Ti Cove Hummer before. Enjoy.
