I left my hack at work the other day, because I had a works van overnight, wanted to nip out for something a realised that even with all the bike collecting that i do, I havn't got another bike fit to ride!!
I seem to flit from one project to another, anyone else have similar problems? cheers alan

this one stripped down and waiting for 07 xtr & fox forks, convincing myself that it'll be retro in 15 years time?

Nice collection :D

Know what your saying, sometimes seems like painting the forth bridge trying to keep a few bikes running. something always seems to be busted or need attention :cry:

Fed up with having to build before ride.

I'm slipping into that dangerous ground where I sometimes think I am having more fun building and part tracing than actually riding :lol:

Just coming up with a spec list for the Bontrager left me breathless :shock: (joking, I promise!)

Know how you feel... earlier this year I had five bikes in the garage and only one of them could be ridden. Spent the past few months sorting them out and now I have four bikes all rideable with a bit of pedal swapping.
