Loving the pedals, any clue as to what frame these parts are being hung on yet?


I'd say based on one of the pictures a red Marin Shoreline Trail?

Will you be able to find the frame in there? :shock:

The shed of doom is an amazing place a bit like the nearby Fenlands occasionally something interesting will appear at the top of the pile, but you have to be quick before it sinks back in to the darkness. There are certain rituals to preform, that i cant go into here that will make it yeald what you want from it.


It sounds like something from another dimension or similar to Dr Who's Tardis which appears small to the casual passer by but once inside it's dimensions are almost infinite. I wonder if you put a BSO frame in there it would metamorphose into your dream frame :D

Its not as nice as the Tardis it's a far darker place, but is like a doorway to another dimension 2 minuets in there is 2 hours out here.As for the morphing no such luck as the amount of tat i have put in there over the years i should have half a dozen San Andreases hanging up in there

So Monday was a good day, a boring trip to Oxford was made good by the news i can finally ride a bike again after nearly 17 months, and i acquired a frame to hang this stuff on. The plan was to strip and re paint the frame but with the news im just going to build it and get out there.

And yesterday i dared to reach in to the darkest depths of the shed of doom and found these, even found the canti bosses in a little box on treats table, and it only cost me a tinny part of my soul.

Liking that, I had two mates growing up with Giant ATX’s, they used to launch them off everything, both with the same super plush forks. Great choice :)
