My 456. Its changed quite a bit though. Now has white Crest rims with Nobby Nics running Stans. Black King headset, Thomson stem and post, white Bonty saddle. Its quite fun, but definitley not comfortable.

My pink scandal with the bomber rac's is the best bike I have ridden in years. It's better than my carbon xtc, new trek fuel etc

people should try them, they cost peanuts in a world where everything else does not.
That makes them a winner for me!

Here’s mine done on the very cheep, all second hand stuff.
I have a set 29" white rigid fork and a 29" from wheel to go on it, so it will soon be a ridged SS 4569er. :D

I'd shorten the chain and get the tensioner pushing up - it'll give you far better chain wrap. Looking cool though 8)

Here's mine, didn't realize there was so much controversy over On-One's, I love mine and would recommend them to anyone, i started following Retrobike because i also have a retro Kona Hahanna, maybe i should head over to Singletrack and take a look, get away from the "snobbery" here' after all they seem to be about riding and not one- upmanship.
Just a little bit disappointed really.
