I love this site as you see so many awesome bikes, mine are not so rare but I love them all (and don't ride any as much as I really should!), was tidying the shed and thought I'd take pictures of a few....
This is my Kona Kaboom, this was a one model year Out of Bounds Kaboom.....basically a Roast with horizontal dropouts, the saddle and cranks are new additions....the chain is a little slack at the moment
had to wait four months for it back in 2001 but it was worth it!
Here's my Fuquay, bought it as a frameset from Jez and after some research got the history of it from BugPowderDust (cheers!), I love it! the newish tyres are for riding on.....it's usually shod with Umma Gummas but I'm looking to get some cream Schwalbe Fat Franks as Petes Roberts roadster has spurred me on to do a similar thing!
This is my work in progress.....an ebay rescue Dave Yates Diablo! I have a nice NOS set of 1" Kona P2's to fit (cheers Simon), probably gonna go with a Shimano drivetrain on this (105 rear/XT front/DX Thumbies) and 3DV Paul brakes...
And finally here's my daily rider, a battered and bruised Breezer Jet Stream, no dents though! got a mish-mash Hope wheelset on now (how noisy?) and the Race Face stem was a cheapy from Wiggle but apart from that it is as bought, putting the hammer down the rear wheel flexes but is 100% true
was gonna buy a new hardtail but think I'll just stick knobblies on this!
Hope my epic post hasn't bored anyone too much
