This is a thread for those poor-average bikes which have had far too much time and/or money spent on them.

Cost very little as I had the parts on other bikes. But the time I spent on it making things fit was a lot.

Do you crash a lot?

I think the only explanation for that is too many a bump on the head...

I like the Blingtivator: it's a nice, peculiarly UK addition to the RB annals, and according to some, lighter than a Yeti Ultimate?. My only criticism is you didn't go far enough. It needs Butterscotch Porcs. :wink:

Does one have to own a lipstick pig contender to post it here?

My current project possibly counts. I know the frame is not high end, but I wanted something that I could use for various tasks without having to worry about swapping bits etc, so local trails, roads, trips to the park with the kids etc. I was contemplating middleburn cranks but will probably stick with the M730 cranks and the rest of the groupset being M737/9 XT.
