Depending on weather I either ride my bmx (dry bike), based on a Metal Rebel Contender frame.

Or a single speed (wet bike) I built up from a free F&F from a friend and parts being thrown away at the bike shop where I work. Free stuff rocks! the frame is a Saxon Sprint, has anyone heard of them before?

Cheers

Here is my '94 Lava Dome now it's ready to use for work. As standard except for a (modern) crank and a set of Hope Ti Glide's with Sun CR18 rims. Just had a new cassette, chain and BB, so running like a dream! Panaracer Panasellas finish it off and make it super fast! :D

I am going to change the handle bars for some risers because the current bars have been cut to 19.5" and are too narrow for me.

(note the retro 'Cool Tool' on the floor! :lol: )

this is so smooth!!! gorgeous, even if it's a kona.

Here's one of my commuters, Trek 800 with drop bars, suntour friction barcons, cheap suspension seatpost, rack & panniers. Heavy, but bullet proof and comfortable.

what a dog! (No offence meant, honest.) You are, however, using the best pump in the world. Zefal hp-x. I have three in sizes 1,2 & 3. Two of them are probably 15 years old & still working fine. Several plastic pumps were been binned before I discovered these beauties.

Sorry folks, someone had to list one.

But wait, this aint you're average Brompton. I bought this new as just a frame due to the poor quality of the standard Brompton finishing kit then just added crap from the shed. The eagle-eyed amongst you will spot XT chainset, XTR V-brakes, she also boasts Hyperlite bars, Dura-Ace chain, alloy jockey-wheels, homebrew carbon fibre seat-post, semi-rancid Brooks saddle all finished off with blue-anodised ch/set bolts.

Yeah, yeah, I know, no big deal but we have to use these in London as non-folders aren't allowed on the trains during peak hours.

I tried a fixed wheel but it used to fold itself up whenever i used the wheel to brake.
