It's been some ride already and i've still not been out 'Mountain Biking' yet


Rocky Is done

Once the Mongoose is finished, that's it for the time being.

Got a full-suss Mount Vision on the way soon and that is next in line to be built and finished with Jen's GT.

My IFT is going in a box to be done when I have more time and money and i guess the Mount Vision will also be boxed for a while for the same reason.

The other 2 frames will also be boxed or moved on.

So Rocky Mountain is useable for light cross country/trail use, the Mongoose will be ready next week or 2 is for road/light cross country.

And Jen's bike needs to get some treatment before the build.

Cables are gonna be the killer! £20 or so for a full set :O

I seriously doubt i'll get to Mikee levels of addiction any time soon, need my own house/shed/ldecent job for that caper to start :lol:


Thanks alot for all the help and advice folks, you rock \m/

Catch you for a cycle soonest.

Location: Mammoths deserve to be cloned. From what I've seen in 'Ice Age' they are jolly good sports.
4:

1998 Privateer
2009 Carrera Fury (which I technically did for #1 son)
2011 Rockrider Carbon XC8
2010 Merida Crossway 800 commuter

Keep 2 of 'em at work as there are 6 kids bikes, 4 scooters, a jogging treadmill (covered in junk), a Blaupunkt sub, a chest freezer, a big fridge, 2 pushchairs, a Tassimo, a juicer, a box full of usb/stereo leads, 4 tents and all the camping gear and x amount of wellies and snow boots and cappers (with mice in probably) in the garage already. It's like Tetris-meets-Jenga with Mr. Trebusin there.

For me its a bout each one having a purpose - so the Breezer is my MTB, the Galaxy is my road machine / tourer, Globe is my short journeys / city bike / any weather / park anywhere pub bike, the Skull is my sunny day cruiser and custom pride and joy & finally the Scot, once repainted and rebuilt will be my.....tweed jacket & pipe smoking Sunday special. (thats a new category I just invented).........anyway 5 bikes jet about covers all the bases.

Oh and I am determined to stick to a one in one out policy from here - so when I find the right Rocky Mountain, the Breezer is getting sold or swapped.
