Going back to 2001/2 and after a motorbike whoopsy left me with a pined left wrist I had to put away the Mongoose SGX and ride something with suspension forks. Check out the Lovely Judy TTs (still in the shed), rear brake only, big-ringing it…
The frame snapped by the seat tube/top tube about a year after.
My friend Phil had one of these-
Which I borrowed after one house party to go and get some bacon and milk from Morrisons on. After nailing a set of footbridge stairs my foot spun on the pedal at walking pace and I’ve still got the scars on my shin today.Posted 6 years agoone_bad_mofoSubscriber
Loving the splatter paint jobs on the retro Konas. My first real MTB (after a Raleigh Maverick) was a Kona Lave Dome from the same year (1990) except I got the limited edition all white version/non-splatter. It was bought from Covent Garden Cycles, a shop that had a Mint Sauce mural on the wall. I also got a free pair of JT Thread glasses, anybody remember those?Posted 6 years ago
Random fact I later wnet to work in Covent Garden Cycles around 1996, when it was part of the Wheely Serious group of shops.
