Would that be the same Cove Hummer that you paid £100 for the frame? Lucky git ;)

I thought I got a good deal with my Hustler frame (which I did considering they were £1500 new), but I think you beat me!

Only just mind you ;)

Now now don't be like that, he had it hanging in his shed for a year that was all :D . I like yours!!! I was looking at the Genesis Latitude Alfine(sexy). Now looking to getting an Alfine set up for the hummer, don't have a mate with a spare one do you? :lol:. They seem quite pricey but I like the tidiness & mud clearance they provide. Not sure on the maintenance though? I follow the 'tantric' method of maintenance, ride it a long time until it's f***ed & then replace it!!! :lol:

Good stuff, glad its worked out well.

In my experience, when air shocks sound squishy it usually means a service us due soon. I can highly recommend Loco and J Tech. Both do a good job and cost about the same, it usually comes down to who can do it quickest!

Well, I was wide awake at 6am so I decided to go out for a spin along the coast path. This time in the opposite direction.

Certainly beats being in work! ;)

Exactly what it says on the tin ;)

The exit is on an RAF Base and would be used in an emergency. They'd literally just smash right through it!
