Another victim of some would say, marketing hype. We can't all be wrong.

The big wheels. There was a thread a couple of weeks back.......

Hang on...... viewtopic.php?f=41&t=305190

There you go. To sum up, it's all marketing hype and the placebo effect combined with wanting to find difference due to investing in a new product. Or not.

Another fantastic ferrous bike with ferris wheels either end. Wonder what it would be like to ride with matching rigid forks ? 8)
Good stuff

double :lol: Im sure it would be good, I am a convert to this fad so much so that I will confess that I haven't ridden my modern 26er since July .... it clean and ready to go but this big rat gets chosen.

I did want to get another frame as i mentioned in the original post, but as this one rides so well I am now not bothered, it gets a lot of attention and admirers when out and about (unlike the rider) :lol:

He still has the 'proper' one you know Adrian. The one with 'obsolete' wheels :lol: :lol:

So, what's the plan Mr Monster?
