- Commuter recommendations please. SS & big gey wheels
My commuter was free but is close to death. I’m thinking of actually spending money on something SS with big gey wheels. Roardrat, Trek Soho S retail at under £500, but Will probably be after last years, LBS deal or 2nd hand to save more £££s. Any recommendations of other similar bikes to look out for ? Needs to be plain to look at, it will be locked up outside work in the rain all day, with pregnant mums sitting on it smoking fags.Posted 9 years ago
neither niche nor fancy, but i’ve been really happy with my langster. quick, light, comfy ( and i own a pompino and two inbreds, so my ‘used to be niche’ is covered well ).Posted 9 years ago
i re-greased the bearings in the wheels and tensioned them up and done nothing else too it apart from break my collar bone falling off it pi55ed.
other ss, big gey wheeled bikes are available.D0NKSubscriber
I got a pompino I’m fairly happy with, mate just got a langster for £440 shinier and lighter but he’s going to have to be inventive to get full guards on it (a must for me cos I ride in whatever the weather) which is one of the reasons I got the pompino. The spesh cross might take guards – dunno if thats important for u.Posted 9 years ago
i had to get fairly inventive when i fitted sks guards to my pomp. had to drill a whole in them to fit them to the bridge at the seat stays. i just got race blades for the langster, but it wouldn’t take too much monkeying about to fit guards to it. the single tricross is probably a good shout.Posted 9 years agodamitamitMember
You can fit guards to a Langster like so…
See the rest of the album for more photos.
However I’m not really liking my langster for some reason. Seem to prefer the beat up old sjs cycles frame i had before which i bodged into SS with old parts. hmmmmPosted 9 years ago
