Very nice built with all the top noth blue goodies

Could be a coussin of my Rafty Funnel

Good idea to get rid of the saddle. Have been told those are not considered bombproof :roll:

Who?? My Rafty Funnel is a personality, but not a person :wink: It is a bike with a framedesign pretty similar to that of your S-bike. It is also polished and it has also some blue detailing. It has okay componetry, but not all as nice as your S-bike 8) I will post it

With 'not bombproof' I meant that carbon Flite seat is absolutely not undestructable. Good idea to replace it

That is seriously nice, I really think it looks super cool. The white and blue colour combination look outstanding. Definitely a contender for a future Bike Of The Month :D

How much is it worth in Euros? No idea. I recall the s-bike frames being real expensive originally though.

Yes. But I don t know how many at the time.
I have a Sbike catalog. Perhaps, there are prices.

I want an S-bike. Wah.

I bought one from ebay recently but it had a crack in the BB. Bummer. Went back to seller who understood and hadnt noticed the crack.

Was real excited about building it up though.

Nevermind :(
