There really is no getting away from it!

I wouldn't expect this on a better quality bike like this, must have been built by Halfords... ;)

Says he only rode it twice. I wonder if he found the handling a bit suspect. :lol:

Was just about to say that. :D

Seriously though - how the hell can you stand back after putting it together, look at it and think, 'yup, that looks like a normal bike'? Really? And then take a picture. And then put that on eBay. For the world to see. Really? Think I need to go and find a pint to cry in to quietly (good excuse for a beer anyway)
