One of my bikes i've been tinkering today is what i call my pub bike as in its stripped to the bare essentials to make it harder to crash when drink riding.

Its a 1992 GT Talera with many mods and upgrades, Gone are the gears and shitty brakes, Add a suspension seat post, and as of today some front suspension forks. Hydraulic brakes and fat tyres mean a comfy as f**k wheelie machine that runs quiet as a mouse.

A few pics for you

No Gears = big boys BMX

Bouncy forks

Bar end plugs (old pic)

Hope you enjoy it as much as i do 8)

Bars aren't to my taste but other than that I like it a lot. Isn't it a bit good for a pub bike though? :?

Looks good,but i thought the idea of a pub bike was one you could leave outside when youre in getting a beer,that would go missing straight away

Seems like the pub bike did its job last night as i didn't even know i'd put this on here :oops: :lol:

It's perfect for the pub as its a low end model with all the quick releases removed so people cant rob stuff off it.
