Seeing as my activator 2 has roused such an interest (good or bad)
has anyone else got any crappy or embarrassing bikes on file to share with us mortals?
I dont pretend (or care) to know much about modern bikes,suspension, brakes etc,gears is gears and brakes is brakes :lol:
Being brought up with choppers ,grifters and the good old fs1es and my puch grand prix s, i prefer the easy way to work on bikes.

Applause for your unashamed eccentricity :D

Up here in MacRetroland i have today proposed a build your own Klunker and ride it down a hill. A klunker must not be a purpose built mtb but a road oriented bike beefed up for off road use.
You sir seem a perfect candidate competitor for our madness :lol:
