Yesterday I went for a ride in the snow at Glentress, nice cold fun with some two-wheel drifting up the spooky woods berms.

Today I spunked all my spare cash on tickets to see iron maiden next year - not once but twice. Due to the unique way Rumble is funded that means there will be no more bike spending in 2010, so keep an eye out as it'll be wall-to-wall bargains on here now i'm skint.

Is that right and to think my goal was to one day have a Ti Kona :(

Go for a Moots instead. Only Ti bike worth owning IMHO. Sublime welding and finish. Just lovely.


what about Merlin and MacMahon?



Both very nice, but the Moots is head and shoulders above them. Rigormootis is one of the best frames I have riden. Super light, subtle damping of Ti without any of the Ti flex.

Mega.


That was one of your nicest bikes. Top 3 anyway!

Money no object though..... a Potts Ti 29er with typeII yum yum.

gt xizang - light enough, very stiff rear, nice welding, handles well, just isn't anywhere near as pretty as the moots.

I did like the feel of salty's Jones but didn't get a long enough shot to really know. I'd also like to try the soft tail ibis and the like but Moots would still be a dream bike for me.

Just ate a Tunnock Caremel Wafer that was in my pannier from the C2C.

It was OK.
