I have to say away from the retro's, two bikes I lust over more than most
1st being a black sheep cycles stella
it's in the mountain bike section http://www.blacksheepbikes.com/
2nd being the surly pugsly http://surlybikes.com/bikes/pugsley_complete/
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]
