You know it really is a cut above the raleigh BSO you so fondly recollect. If you don't buy it I'm sure I'll be able to swap it, these are rare don't you know. And what a fetching colour scheme topped off with matching orange plastic pedals, what I don't know about style ain't worth knowing anyway....

The pedals could be the deal breaker! I was fond of the Magnum as I can now call it because was young, carefree and mostly plastered while wobbling home on it. I know it was not the best but just shows how the cheapest BSO can become a fond memory. Now about yours.....?

Don't colour code your tyres to your frame....! Yellow frame doesn't mean yellow tyres!! I have seen bikes with a black rear to match the frame and a white front to match the forks!!

Bar ends I love em!!! f**k everyone else! :D

If I'm using a 0 degree rise stem ditto...

...if the stem has any rise to it I line the bar ends up with the top tube :oops:

But I actually like clips and straps, I am not averse to utilizing colored tyres (obviously!), and I'll quite happily fit an external BB to a retro frame 8)

Too many colours/anodising

Huge gel seats

Valve caps have to be inline with tyre logos!!!!!!!!! No excuses for that one at all

If were doing a bike purely for looks. Fast riding position, no spacers under the stem, fork cut so no spacers on top, matching post/stem or post/bars with a quill stem, colour matched seat/grips.
