ell_tell : Yep, It was a very sudden failure caused by hitting a very static object at speed.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve been thinking all along ”I don’t know if I would have that repaired” but then it didn’t occur to me – I’m riding a bike that has had a down tube and head tube replaced by fillet brazing, on a previously tig-welded frame – doh!
It was replaced under warranty 3 years ago, no idea who did it SJS farmed it out.
Later paintwork owner’s own….
Ps: glad you and the bike are all mended!Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Nice wee write up, I’ve had that site in my bookmarks for years but never read that particular article – you’ve got to love his choice of bike, very similar to my 1994 indian fire trail with rigid forks that was rode everywhere, and usually without a helmet 😯 . imagine the stares you’d get now if you turned up on a rigid alloy frame fixed gear single speed with cantilever brakes and a 0 degree quill stem with a 120mm reach and all in one ti bars/bar ends.
That article is what i consider mtb’ing to be in a nutshell…… ain’t it?, The fun factor doesn’t change dependant on speed or terminal velocity, well not for me anyway as i can just as happily get a kick out of bimbling down a rocky hillside and not putting a foot down and i imagine others get a kick out of straight lining down the hillside with 6″ of travel to soak everything up, different for everyone i suppose but bimbling on a light ride is my idea of happiness.
So the moonter phrase? what came first? – your name or the phrase or a happy coincidence of both at the same time?.
And i guess charlie owes that article a doff of his cap 😀Posted 4 years ago
