Bought this several months ago to try something different, and I've been enjoying it very much - its great fun for cruising around on and its also currently my favourite commuter, not really its intended purpose! Its in lovely condition and came with some nice original components, and I'm pretty happy with it now although I may change the chainring for a Profile Imperial - not sure whether silver or black would look best - and maybe the seatpost. Any suggestions gratefully received.

Looks immaculate. Like the Pauls brakes too. Very tidy bike, don't think I'd change anything on it to be honest.

I recognise the flats/buildings in the 2nd to last pic from when I used to commute to zone 8. Somewhere near marylbone?

Nice bike, always wanted one back in the day.

I'd love one of these - a dirt jump bike way before it's time.


As an ex-bmx-er myself I have to say a silver Imperial chainring is one of the sexiest chainrings ever made - the black looks cheap IMHO.

I had some Profile SS cranks once, now those bad boys are HEAVY!

profile ss cranks with the 'blackjack' 44t chainring would weigh more than my entire bicycle collection now :lol:
