I'm trying to figure out the use of the bottle cage...? Is it some kind of guiding system for the D-lock??

Haha, no, it came before the D-lock, so I have to make sure if I want a drink I can only ride to places I won't need to lock the bike!

Ooooooooooooh Piccies please :)


Here it is, needs some love, a respray of the bar ends and handlebar stem, replace the seat stem, looking for a replacement saddle, buts rides ok. Gripshift twisters, saddle and tyres all grey as original but need a clean. I like it but with the 1.95 tyres it does sound like my Land Rover when on the road :wink:


nice bike,,,mines quite comfy and quieter with the bigger 2.25 tyres,although there is room for bigger
i found that a sprung seat is better as i take it through some rough ground on the way to work(although its resting till the spring at mo) as the suspension is not that good
using the jensen at mo (see piccy) :D
the gears are smooth and its lighter than people say,i love my bso :!:

My Trek weighs 39.2 lbs, is that enough to join the club here or do I really need to buy a heavier bike? :lol:

I bought one from Halfords with a group of mates. It lasted a week. We took it back and complained. The store manager said it wasn't designed to be ridden off road. We pointed out they sold it as a Mountain bike and we simply used it the same way we were using ours. He asked what bikes we had and gave him a list of Kona's, GT's, DBR's and such like. He put up a bit of a fight but we got our money back with him saying "oh it must have been a faulty one. All the other's I've sold have been fine"
