took delivery of my transition Klunker yesterday.

I saw these on the internet a few months and thought they would be a crack.

didnt think much about it after that. however after seeing one at london bike show a couple of weeks ago i knew i had to have one!!

so after a few phone calls and emails, and help from the other transition Klunker thread on here, i managed to find one at noahs ark.

A couple of minor mods, just to make it mine. Charge bucket seat, odi grips, white pedals. i also have a 39T profile imperial sprocket to add, the stock gearing of 42:18 is a tad high!!

A quick spins and first impressions are as i thought. good fun, but quite tricky to ride with a coaster brake only!!
