I wish I could show you my pub bike :cry: it was a Muddy Fox that someone had had sprayed black and renamed Orange Clockwork, it was well kitted out though and it took me everywhere to the village, to town, it was my nip anywhere bike, until my son nipped to the village, couldn't be bothered to lock it and someone decided they'd like it, Ah well, I missed that work horse a lot, an old faithful little thing.

I'd miss my hack bike if it went walkies too :(

A pub bike should ming as much as possible.......and mine sure does ming. It came out of a skip about 13 years ago, frame number's been filed off and it's resprayed tatty black, although half of that respray's now fallen off to be replaced by rust. It's been built entirely with bits that were otherwise heading for the scrap pile, looks completely sh!t but rides beautifully :D

Yeah, I know. I gave up on the riding part because I kept spilling my drinks.

Mmm just the sort of thing you could happily leave unlocked outside the pub because no one will take it :D

+1
I throw ugly looking NightSun lights on mine and ride it to the bar(s) at night. It get's locked up. Black on black with black accents, it blends into the night, and looks like just another cheap bike. No one knows what it is, or what the parts on it are worth.
