it's no brodie.........
but a sweet ride none the less.
and you sound happy.
that is what counts.
looking forward to the build thread.
all the best of the new year.
(keep me posted on brodie developments wont you.)
You are right though, its no Brodie......, lol...., but it is an Overburys..., similar yet so different...
Overburys were untill last year a small shop building bicycle frames in the south of England in a little town called Bristol, and they had done so for roughly 100 years, and gained some great successes in the early days of the U.K mountain bike scene.
example...MAN v HORSE v BIKE
THE THREE PEAKS....(Winning Best bike)
And..1st and 2nd place podium finishers
World Championship (second british rider, FRANCE)
and the FAT TYRE FIVE CHAMPIONSHIPS.
IMHO this may not amount to much by todays standards, but back in the day, when things were still quite new to us, (especially here in the uk) for a small traditional english frame builder to start building THE NEW MOUNTAIN BIKE, and achieve such levels of success, you cant do anything but admire there them.
fwiw, i really feel they had there ups and downs, but then the Frame builders did suffer here in the uk for lots of reasons, (you only need to chat to Dave LLoyd to realise that) they have a cult following and i suppose have always remained quite underground really...but that cult following is deserved in my book...., at least for having enough will to fight to there bitter end.....!!! More fight than the GREAT BITISH BULLDOG.......LMAO.
