how many if you have a retro pub bike. that you can just leave outside locked with a cheap lock have a few beers and know it will be there at the end of the night. because it just looks to old to be any good to steal :D

Yes, that's full XT and the drivetrain has less than 100 miles on it, but over here anything older than 3 years and in less than perfect condition is scrap anyway.
And yes, that old halogen headlight does still work. I have 2 NOS ones as backup, just in case.

My 'pub' bike so to speak, well at least the only one I would even consider leaving locked up anywhere for more than 10 seconds out of eyeshot - I give you my Saracen Tufftrax Elite.

My previous pub bike before I split it and built the Saracen was the cadex pictured.

Well, I don't feel the need to use a lock on my pub/shop bike.....it would be desperate smack head that stole this ride! I bought it for parts off ebay for £26, sold the parts for around £50.....put some shit parts back on it(check out the DX thumbies and chainset)....and bingo....my new bike! I actually would be peed if it got nicked as I use it almost everyday and tbh....it looks crap but functions 100%....and thats what a pub bike is all about surely? :-)

DRINKING and RIDING :shock:

No one should have a pub bike, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Plus lamposts should stay at the side of the road, its that leaping out in front of you bit they do when you've been out enjoying yourself on the town that also annoys me......hic !
