Nice bikes :wink: , especially like the Proflex and the Orange.

Know what you mean about this site, i bought my Orange frame at christmas, was going to build it as a budget single speed with Magura rim brakes then i found this site and that has now turned into full gears and canti- brakes, and the "budget" build is not very budget anymore :shock: .

Planing on re-building my GT with more period parts too.

The Retro bug bites hard :lol:

loving the Proflex, just become a convert myself. Very underrated methinks.

PS. I got shot down for the risers and bar ends thing when I joined up too :oops:

them bar ends on the marin are just wrong.

























They need to be practically vertical if the build is in a moss side stylee

next object of desire is a lava/cindercone about 90-94.

If you are looking at selling I'm looking at buying, just don't tell the missis :twisted: )
