- Owning just one bike is silly.
Well, scientific research over the past two and a half weeks on my part has revealed that to be the case at least. I set off for a late afternoon ride on the hottest day of the year on dusty trails that are a no go area over winter. Within 50 yards I’d stopped because the bike felt wobbly- I blamed the main pivot bearing, although I’d just replaced it a month ago. Got off to have a look and found this-
I’d bought this bike as a replacement for three bikes, and until now the plan has worked. While it’s being sorted out I needed something to ride- no bikes for two weeks has made me grouchy and it’s doing the wife’s head in. With a strict budget of £300 I have built this for the pricnely sum of £295. Weight is 27.5lbs (ironically 2lbs heavier than the 6″ travel full suspension bike it’s standing in for) and ride quality as yet unknown, but I’ll find out in the morning.

Thats a very nice bike for £295!
Personally I work on quantity over quality – I get on fine with £1,000 bikes so rather than have an all singing all dancing £4,000 superbike i’ve got a garage full of perfectly adequate hardtail, full susser, singlespeed and fat bike – and just pick whats best suited for where I fancy riding (and whats not broken!)Posted 4 years agoavdave2Member
Wife should be told it would be far more efficient to keep the broom by the bin.
That does look very nice and I really like the idea of remembering someone by carrying their name on your bike, I can think of no higher honour a friend could confer on someone, I hope he rides with you for many years to come.Posted 4 years ago
