Indeed :lol:

I do like the idea of using old bikes though. It's the main reason I'm doing up my Raleigh. But when you can get superior new bikes for the same price it does seem a bit pointless. It's, like, who are their market though
You can see kids coming downstairs on Christmas day to get a bright green no-name MTB (all beautifully finished I'll grant you), when they wanted a nice front sus workable MTB. Their mates would pi$$ themselves :twisted:
