A Bicycle Shaped Object. A derogatory term used to describe the kind of tat sold in various outlets for £79.99 or less, hewn from the finest granite, equipped with a groupset that wouldn't impress the guys that put up Stonehenge.

This one looks like a car has reversed over the frame.

Yup, cheapy bike with a mondraker sticker. Good for pub trips and nipping to the shop etc. I hope you just got it very cheap indeed and the previous owner wasnt trying to palm it off as anything other than a cheap Halfords special.

The dropouts are just cheap pressings. The frame is an earlier example from the Cape Wrath stable, but the chainset and nasty mech suggest it's much lower than the Wrath in the family. Forks at from something else entirely. Frame looks badly damaged. I don't think its very old, 6 or 7 year perhaps.

It's about as much a Mondraker as my left nut is Lord Lucan.
