- Like a pompetamine but less agricultural?
To DavidTalyforth’s list I’d add:
Cotic Roadrat – tough and great fun to ride – will take a hub gear. Bit flexy if loaded up too much.
Or what about the new Surly Straggler over the cross check (assuming you want disks)
Van Dessel WTF also looks a hoot – pretty sure it will take a hub gear as it can be singlespeeded / belt driven etc. Saw a cracking build of one outside the Sloop Inn in Porthgain when on hols the other week (Hi to its owner if you’re on here!)Posted 4 years ago
I’m looking for a new bike. Not a mtb, not a road bike, something to set up as a do-it-all bike running hub gears. I’m planning to buy a frame and build up myself.
The pompetamine has caught my eye. It has clearance for cross tyres, will take disks, has mudguard mounts, rack mounts, slot dropouts, compact frame etc. The only fly in the ointment is it has that typical on-one look. I’ve had an on-one before and they’re great bikes for the price but I’m prepared to pay a bit more for better looks/finish.
What else is out there?Posted 4 years agoHoratioHufnagelMember
Some Kinesis Tripsters and Pro 6 frames here http://outlet.upgradebikes.co.uk/Outlet/Clearance/Frames/Kinesis/Racelight
fwiw, i found the Tripster to have a very “steel like” feel to it.Posted 4 years ago
back online after tea…
thanks for your suggestions, everyone. I have lots to look into though I don’t think the budget will stretch quite as far as that rather lovely Shand. Perhaps cardiac is right and a pompetamine and a paint job is the answer
Next thread from me will be one about those funny curly handlebars and how they affect bike sizingPosted 4 years ago
