this frame first came to my attention about 1 1/2 years ago when roc6839 discovered it hanging in a local bike store.viewtopic.php?f=1&t=181450&hilit=suzi+q
since then i have had the pleasure of admiring it on several occasions.
it's been present at toxik harald's annual bike show.
well as of this week i am now the proud ower of it.
i have decided to give it it's own identifying thread.
unfortunately it has a cracked seat tube. what do i do?
do i leave it as is........wall art?
do i build it with the cracked tube as a `show bike'.
or do i get it fixed, build it and ride it?
firstly, what do you think would happen to the frame if it was built as is and ridden gently?
by that i mean almost strictly pavement and a bit of gravel path.
no big ring uphill cranking either. plus i'm no lightweight.
roc thinks it should remain as original as possible. no fix, no build. wall art. that was his plan for it.
he has rolled his eyes so much from my ideas that he's looking at the back of his head now.
i like to ride my bikes so am leaning towards the gently riding with fingers crossed it doesn't snap in two on me.
or inquiring in to getting it fixed.
what are peoples thoughts?
here are some pictures of miss. suzi q.
