so wahts your bike p*rn?



I'm still not seduced by the fat tyre / 29er concept.... Yet.

I'd like to try it but I usually do 4-5 road miles before I get to the proper trails and I don't think 4" tyres would cut it on the roads....

Still partial to a nice bit of ti tho...

As for bike pr0n, I'm currently fapping over this - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 1805896901

I've always had a soft spot for vit-t's since I blagged a ride on one in the early 90's. It was way too big for me, seat was too high, stem too long etc but I owned a £300 Raleigh at the time and the vit-t cost more than my car!!!!

These days I'm lusting after IF, Merlin or Moots ti, but I'm tempted to put in a cheeky bid for the frame above. I just need to know what a good kidney's worth first....[/url]

This is doing it for me at the mo :D
I think its the same bike that was ridden by one of the very quick guys at the Singlespeed euros at the Forest of Dean earlier in the year.
Almost had to pop behind a tree and show my appreciation :oops: :D
Cool as a polar bears nose :wink:

I think :D it was a Singular Ti 29er it had carbon HED rims with skinwall offroad tubs and carbon Niner fork, not 100% certain this is the actual bike I saw, but its very similar.
There was another even nicer one which was all Ti, frame, fork, stem, hubs etc, with carbon rims and bars if i remember correctly, but I can't find a picture of it :?
