Hi,

These are the only 'retro' bikes that I currently own, and both are ridden regularly.

I have to admit that now I'm getting older, I prefer the comfort of a full bouncer, so I also own a 'Cruz Blur, and a Patriot:)

Oh, I forgot this, a nearly retro tourer!!

good job this isn't stw... you'd get terrible stick for valve tyre logo alignmnet. And your patio needing a jetwash.

Bikes are very clean though. Like the Thorn

Nice collection you have there. As an avid Orange fan, I have to say my fave is the Rock Lobster :? :? :?:

I've recently bought a similar rock lobster frame that used to be that colour. Somewhere along the chain someone has got it powder coated battleship grey, doesn't look too bad but after seeing this i'm tempted to get it sprayed back to the original colour.

What do you guys reckon?? Should I get it sprayed back to the orig colour?

Things I like

Orange - I like the grey colour, it makes a great canvas that you can go with any colour

Rock Lobster - The Black on the Manitou forks amuses me, as if there should be a 'RED' on the frame somewhere!

Blur - The saddle is quite amusing on such a modern styled frames.

Thorn - To me it's definately a thing of purpose rather than beauty!


Also - how flat are your brake levers? Don't you're wrists ache after a while?
