Interesting way of mounting a Crud...


My thoughts too at first - but I suspect the fork linkage would hit it under the downtube. Personally, I'd look for a 'proper' Crud in that case, but hey...

Couple of years back while visiting Vienna i walked a shortcut through some narrow residential streets and a pale bronze colour mid-90s Cinder Cone caught my eye. It was an urban hack, city tyres, grimey mechanicals, some practical attachment like a rack or old mudguards or something, chained up alongside a few other bikes with it's crossbar against the lamppost ( :x ). To most people probably just another invisible bike among hundreds they walk past daily but to me it was totally stand-out cool 8)

I was staying at the southern tip of Manhattan a few weeks ago and saw this chained up on the street:

Certainly the earliest Rockhopper I've seen, and very nearly complete and original-check out the grips. The street was lined with Ferraris....I was taking pics of this! I was thinking '85?
