Wow, signing up for updates. What are the plans for groupset, shimano, or exotic?


Pleased you like it.

It wasn't daft enough for my tastes, so changes are afoot!!

I'll post some pics of the new look bike next week. Picking the lovely wheels up tomorrow.

OMG

Have you finally taken up THM's offer to pop in and give you some styling tips.
Gonna live life in colour and perhaps have a 29 inch wheel up front to lift the bars and make it more of a rider of the elder statesman that you now are?

My 'name in vain' service was activated this morning.

Hey Al, a lovely but restrained build.

The Forth bridge comes to mind.

Here if you need me darling.

I would loved to have been at the Haro design team meeting.

"I see everyone has sloping top tubes now, for more stand over height. Should we have a sloping top tube?"

"Yes, but lets do it the other way around, let's have a 2 inch head tube and a 4 foot seat tube, so your arse is 6 feet in the air and your chin rubs on the front tyre."

I can see why it appeals to you Al. :P

Yes it's bonkers, but has a real beauty, so pushes all my buttons... even the one that makes my leg shake like a dog.
