Nice

Mine arrived on Monday, not had a chance to take it offroad yet, swapped the chainring for a 33t bmx ring and going to try an 18 on the back. Going to try and klunker ride the local xc trails round longleat. Already with the 33 up front you notice how much further you have to back pedal to engage the coaster brake.

Ill get some pics up soon to :D

All this Klunker talk reminds me of my Raleigh Striker with the back pedal brake in the 70's

I had a perma-grin even when all the cool kids got BMX I was doing the same stuff on that, but waaaaaay better skids :)

A Klunker challenge sounds sweet.

The Transition rep did say they would be organising some events themselves, but I guess nothing has come of it.

I had one of those when I had a kid. I used to go through so many back tires!
