I think I'm slightly worried about points deduction as the bike I bought is probably 2007! I was thinking of value and reliability and forgot that the retro bit was the point. :facepalm:

Thought it was older and didn't notice the disc brakes as the pic was tiny.

Anyway, it was a bargain. And works. Still trying to scrounge tyres. :cry:


I have a set of tyres you can have, nothing special but plenty of grip, not cracked etc- can bring them to the Honc sunday as your local.

You sir, are a gentleman. Can meet at the school at 8.30ish? How will I know you? Red carnation and a copy of the guardian under your arm etc?

I am a burly bearded bespectacled bloke (alliteration) and will ride up on my £25 worth!

Ok, well browsing ebay at 1:45am has resulted in me spending a massive £13.49 on a classic 91ish lump of steel, I've got 21 gears and a (probably seized) front suspension fork. :)


Is that seat post meant to be that colour :lol: check out the fork angle :wink:

I see you've discovered my steed, that is a period brown seat post colour. Must weigh at least 18kg, tempted to spend the remaining £11.51 on a second hand set of aluminium cranks should take a couple of KG's off. :lol:

That is a mega-bargain.

Unfortunately, as the rest of us are going to be riding ancient bikes that weight the same as a decent anvil, you are going to have to tow a large rock behind the bike, at least on the climbs anyway :wink:
