This is such a cool bike! Looks like you could drop off the Sun and not bottom it out!

This is my idea of fun! Huge gaps and drops! We have a big disused quarry this would be well at home in!


Cheers :wink: , dont know about "huge gaps and drops", sounds a bit scary, i did jump off some stairs (3) in the town centre thismorning :lol:

Rides great, one problem i did find though is i cant run it for long with the seat that low, 1/2 hour and my lower back was done in, i chopped the post (stupidly) and put it that low because it looks better on this style of bike (as with the angled saddle), thought i could live with it but just not practical so going to get a longer post, maybe a remote drop one.



have a look for a telescoper, ugly as sin but can drop quite low in this type of frame.
