- lets see your mtb commuters
2.4 X-king is skinny right? 😉
Is my only bike at the moment until my alpine is build then this will be made more commuter-ish, so for the moment the xking race king combo is fast enough for my mostly road commute but don’t need to change tyres when getting a bit muddy.Posted 4 years agoAlpha1653Member
Powder coated ’97 Kona with Fox Float 32’s spaced down to 100mm. I did the Welsh C2C on it in the summer but is now my winter commuter. With slicks, it’s now faster than a fast thing on ice! I’ve just got a set of exotic carbon forks to replace the Floats as they’re a little long, plus it’s drop the weight by a couple of pounds. Much fun!Posted 4 years agochipMember
It is an El cheapo Carrera subway and sold as a hybrid.
But it is in reality an old rigid mtb they put road tyres on, rubbish ones at that which were quickly replaced with conti travelcontacts:
I have racked up a lot of trouble free miles on this bike and I don’t mind leaving it chained up in public for long periods of time.Posted 4 years ago
I once rode past a couple of hoodies and overheard one say in reply to the other “no that bikes shit” which put a big smile on my face.cr500domSubscriber
This was mine, Trek XC race frame, Alfine rear, Rigid Badboy forks, KCNC Stem, just loads of “Spare bits” really.
Oh and 2.35 Schwalbe supermotos setup ghetto tubeless, which are just ace
Until I brought a Kona MinUte Cargo thanks to a PSA on here, which meant it all got broken and sold again.Posted 4 years agocr500domSubscriber
Mine with daft fat slick tyres and ugly mudguard. BUT i bloody love it. Also looking very like someone elses..
That’s uncanny 😀
I do miss mine, but I have (Too many) other bikes to justify it !!
The Trek frame now lives on with a mate from work, the attempted theft of his Stumpy left the top tube dented and mashed, so this became almost a direct replacement and he is over the moon with itPosted 4 years ago
