Had some On One midge bars sitting there for months, finally got around to fitting them to my Cindercone. Can't make my mind up if I think its a monstrosity with them on, or if I actually like it. Tis very comfortable to ride and just soaks up distance with the skinny tyres on tho.

...I like it! Would be a bit worrying offroad, but wouldn't need that much more height to be manageable. Got to be worth finding out...

Mairi's up for a bimble round Cannock next time we're up there - as long as Han's coming too so it's less scary! :lol:

Maybe best not to lend her this bike?

WOAH!

To be honest it isn't really my cup of tea - I did the kind of double take you do when something startles by looking well..wrong. Like a baby with pierced ears. :lol:

Having said that it is strangely alluring and I keep coming back to this thread. :roll:

I'd be scared watching you go downhill on it! :lol:

strangely alluring is exactly how I think of it too, and downhills.... its not one for rough trails really but its fast for sure
