i have to say though,as much as i adore those bikes,im a bit de-sensitized to the bling,can we have a breakaway type for the non-Klein garage queens,give the little man a chance?

How come Ti Fats Ti fat chance has got 19 votes and Ti Fat Mans has got ZERO Votes ?. They are both really nice builds and fairly similar but what makes the difference ? Or am imissing something ?

:D because TiFats steed is the 'real' deal, it screams period FC... :wink:

it's subtle yet 'oh so' correct...it's one i'd like to own :D

i'm not bitter thou, i'm going to chop 2" out of the seat tube and try again.

joshing, it's perfectly fine as a swappsie deal further down the line :D

Think people are getting numb to seeing lovely Fats', Kleins and Yetis' each month. The Grove and the Nuke Proof have proved a breath of fresh air for me.

so,does the backlash start here or will we continue to be swayed by un-ridden U.S. garage dwellers?
