    This (clicky) seems to show the bridge facing up.

    Anyone here own a Bomber? The seat stay detatches and i took it off for powder coating, now can’t remember which way up it goes. Does the plate which acts as a seat stay bridge face up or down?

    Oooh – takes me back. My mates all had Grifters, but I was different and had a Bomber – a Super no less, with a 5sp derailleur instead of the 3sp hub gear.

    I had a Super Bomber. You are the first person I’ve ever encountered who also had one!

    I also had a Super Bomber!

    I thought the “super” bit was that it was a superchrome blue finish? Mine was definitely 3 speed Sturmey. I might actually have a tattered page from the catalogue in the attic somewhere…..

    Best bit was blue skids!

    Traded in at the local bike shop when I got my first mtb – a Saracen Limited Edition in 1989 – 18 speed and U-brake under the chainstays 🙂

    Which way up is the seat stay?

    I’m halfway through putting mine back together. Been outnfor a little ride, but i’m usually on 58cm on the road and 21″ off- road. Thr bomber feels a bit small, was thinking a layback post might help.

    What saddle are you using? My original is a bit worn out and torn

    That last pic of one looks the same as mine. Such a hard bike to pedal with those short cranks,eh?

    <just back from the shed. Edit: The seat stays have the brake bridge welded onto the stays the same side as the brake.
