    Liking the tropicalesque garden!

    Bike looks good too… 😉

    Oh, and welcome, btw!


    Grass could do with a trim, but I guess it grows quickly in the rainforest of Borneo 😉

    Nice bike though. I’ve got the older Altitude version & love mine. Looks old school but can take on bigger full suss bikes if the mood takes you on the down hills. Excellent choice Sir !

    Wheels are the wrong size.
    Dunno what size they are but they’ll be wrong.

    Nice bike! Good effort sir

    Grass was cut last Wednesday 😀
    Maybe I should have taken the pics with a different backdrop 😀
    Garden is my other hobby BTW.

    Yep, wheels are the wrong size, 26″, but I bought the frame last year so am I excused?


    Very nice! To both bike and garden :-). The latter of which looks very similar to my biking buddy’s garden…. well, big plants, ferns and stuff 😀



    Wheels are the right size, not a fashion fad diameter 😉


    Red is always faster


    nice Ensete Maurelli, Ricinus, chammy and aroids LOL! 😆


    More pictures of the garden.

    Oh no, my first topic is turning the forum into “tropicalgardeningtrackworld”
    Thanks for the comments though, on the bike and garden!
    Bike is orange BTW, but they always look red in pictures!


    Orange you say….

    My comment still stands, red is always faster

    Sorry, looks good though

    It’s an 853 hatdtail.
    Top marks from me.

    Biggest Dock Leaves I’ve ever seen.
    Must have some enormous nettles.

    Go on give us a clue, where is the tree frog hiding.

    Nice bike, 853 is always a nice ride.


    Steel hardtail….. reasonably unoffensive, kind of indie………bound to get thumbs up from STW.

    I get the feeling if you’d have posted a FS a different reaction would have been recieved.

    Nice bike by the way! 😛
