Here's the dilemma do I sell it and carry on happily married :shock: or do I build it up into a single speed and risk divorce :shock:

Haven't seen it for ages :? as its been right at the back of the bike bedroom :lol: given it a quick dust down and I'd forgotten what a nice frame it is :)

I was definately going to sell it but lately I've started to lust after a single speed and as I'm off work for 6 weeks with a broken wrist I've got plenty of time to tinker :D

What do you reckon :?: thinking now its maybe 97 ? I know I've got the MBW magazine ( awards issue ) and its in that so I'll have to dig that out as well :)

No contest.

Singlespeed and Divorce. By the time all the legal work is done, your wrist will be mended and you'll have a singlespeed to play with.

Remember - "Before you criticise somebody, walk a mile in their shoes. Then you'll be a mile away, and you'll have their shoes."

that looks like a 97 to me, though it could possibly be 98?

either way it's lovely. build it up and just hide one of your other bikes at a mate's for a while. if she's anything like my gf, she cant tell the difference between them

Looks like you have a lot of bikes...why would one more make or break things?

Keep and build the bike.
