as above ^ looking for something with front bounce , 27 gears , disc brakes and a 19"+ frame . anything considered just now new or old :wink:

what you got peeps ?


2006 frame 15&1/2"
fox rear shock
marzocchi shiver forks
hope m4 rear brake (older cnc'd caliper) ti6 front brake (black & gold caliper) both need pads as it's been lying a while.......
saint rear mech
deore shifter
lx cranks with dmr chain device
mavic d321 rims on a unbranded rear hub and hope big'un front
maxxis super tacky tyres in pic but will be changed to 2.5 intense 909's

Image

changed the tyres and put a 36t ring on the front as the 40t was a bit overkill but will include it with the bike >

I don't know if I need one of these in my life Eck, but just in case, what would you reckon to a 19" 2010 Kona Blink?

That's cool. Having had a few classic cars myself I understand. I think the 27 gears and discs bit confused me. Or are you saying that you want a Mk1 escort but with a six speed box, leccy windows and aircon?

In fact, that sounds sweet.

I want one myself. :lol:
