i have one

my cannondale (i have a project thread for it in readers bikes)

i scored it for 30 notes, in pretty awful condition, but the frame is sound and i rode it like that for a year, so i figure it owes me nothing - it's had a hard life so time to give it some big love. in truth i just bought the cheapest thing i recognised the name on.

my cousin has bought several recent konas, all have needed love but are good bikes.

S'pose there may be the odd diamond in the rough, but I would have thought the best stuff gets picked over first, like at the tip.

i had an apollo for a 1 mile run from station to uni. i used to lock it with one of those chain locks that you can pick by feel (the 4 digit combination ones)

i got to the station one day, to see the bike with its back wheel kicked in. someone had taken the lock.
