seen it before on a forum, conclusion seemed to be probably a worthy effort at reviving old bikes but end product was very expensive.

i really like the idea of the company, but having read the big blurb about the mountain bike one i was left feeling a little bit ... 'hmmmm'...
after all the talk its basically a 'interestingly' resprayed claud butler with some rather random new bits on it.
i think renovating old bikes that would otherwise be chucked is very commendable indeed and i know it must be quite labour intensive, but the price tags on the shop section seem a little insane to me!
