    Bless you.

    Why has it got that fugly extra tube? Just looks like it adds extra weight, for no good reason.

    And buy a bigger size bike, next time!

    Why has it got that fugly extralong name? Just looks like it adds extra letters, for no good reason.

    Obviously the extra tube is to dry your tea towels on….don’t you geezers no nothing πŸ™„ πŸ˜†

    No, it was a serious question. I can’t see as how that extra tube adds anything structurally to the design at all. Unless the tubes are so thin-walled, that an extra one is needed. Therefore, why not just use tubes suited to the job?

    I would be interested in learning.

    RudeBoy, I guess that you are just not a student of history. The Humu thingummy was the progenitor of the current hipster madness of singlespeeding, designed as a cruiser initially, the extra tube is just there for da cool mon !

    See ya

    Extra top tubes are styled on 50s US cruisers, which were mocked up to look as much like motorcycles as possible, often with a second top tube and indeed a “tank”.

    Ben, definitely interested in this. jon DOTrollasonAThotmailDOTcoDOTuk

    Im the proud owner of a perfect blue Humu, all this chat about the function of the extra tube is missing the point, its not meant to look like your bike, weights not an issue, its COOLER than the bottom of your pillow!!!!! Good luck with the sale.

    Bikey – no reply from BigDummy as yet so.. does £175 sound a bit much for this Classic?

    Sorry Ben, I missed your email. Please do go with Dylan. Tecjnically speaking I have a kona A’ha and can’ really justify a Humu as well. But it looks gorgeous.

    Yoghurt was to go with the curry (or was it chilli?) πŸ™‚

    Dylan – I’ll give Bikey a while to respond yet.. but if I hear nothing.. I’ll drop you a line.

    Ben – I have been trawling the net to try to get some idea of a reasonable price for the Kona. Havn’t come up with much as they seem to be quit rare! I was hoping to pay a bit less than Dylan08 offered, so if his offer still stands then should go with it. If he doesn’t come through at that price then come back to me and we will do the deal. Thanks for hanging on to get an answer from me.

    For some reason Tumblr (where the pic was hosted) doesn’t think I exist anymore. Oh well.
