Show us the bikes you’ve built
Rocky Mountain Element (bargin frame from the classifieds)
Spesh Enduro 03 (another Classifieds bargin, I swap parts between it and the Element)
853 inbred SS
Kona Kilauea – my very well used/travelled/loved 1995 frame with various retro-ish parts. Used for commuting/baby carrying duties at the mo
Cross bike – nothing exciting or exotic but it rides nicely and was cheap
Bianchi – I’ve hankered after one for years and finally got it last year 🙂Posted 8 years ago
Dialled Bikes Alpine wiv full XT inc wheels, brakes etc. Thomson post/stem. RF Diabolous bars and RS 454 U-Turn coil Pikes.
First custom build i have ever done. Well, i say i did, mate helped me build but since then i have had it apart and back together several times now i know whats what….well kinda 😉
I was going to build it this year, but so glad i did it last year instead, as saved a packet due to all the price rises. The wheels alone are about £100+ more this year.Posted 8 years agoFilthyMember
OK I’m bored, no riding for 3 weeks due to broken finger so please show me some nice bikes that you’ve built yourself. I’m looking for some inspiration for my new build.
Can be full sus, rigid, geared or not, doesn’t really matter as long as it was custom built and not a standard shop bought bike.
Here’s a couple I’ve done for starters…
My Rush, frame and a few bits off ebay, other bits from the spares box.
Filthy Jr’s track bike, bike off ebay, stripped then re-built with brompton rims, bmx hubs, roadie brakes and a few bits from the spares box.Posted 8 years agoclubberMember
I love Rocky Mountain Element frames but somehow yours looks all wrong Clubber. Is it a bit small for you?
yes, well spotted – it’s a 19″ when I really ideally need a 20″/21″ – it was so cheap though (£60!) that I can live with it and TBH with a relatively long stem (110mm) and layback post, once I’m out on the trails I totally forget that it’s supposedly too small as it rides brilliantly…Posted 8 years agomamadirtMember
Another Intense for you then Filthy . . .
and yeah, that Tracer looks great. Had a quick spin on one a couple of weeks ago at the Cwmcarn demo day – wow 😀 . That said I have a 6.6 on my CRC wishlist – just waiting for the Tracer’s popularity to bring the price down 😉Posted 8 years ago
