Look you blind critters, did ye no see the triple laughing faces below the 'Traitors' bit. Whats the point of emoticons if you ignore them.
Further Surly are still a modernish brand, this is retrobike, thats all I'm saying.
And as for Clubby's claim that the inbred's a knock down Surly copy thats just plain bo*****'s
Surly 1x1 is just a standard 90's style mtb with track ends which is all thats inovative about it, Inbred looks nothing like a Surly and has different geometry. On One do copy other niches but they dont directly copy other bikes and they do do it cheaper and I never said they were inovative plus I never mentioned them in the first place, that was Gaz
Pause for breath
As for modern I have no problem with it, just cant afford it, my 29er is afterall just a cheapo hybrid with shoehorned in 29er tyres. I have ridden it and I dont like how knackered I get rotating those huge tractor tyres but yes it does roll over stuff quite well. Still in 2 minds about it
OK I've ranted enough but feel I must remind folk this is Retrobike, there are forums galore for modern marvels !
