this bike is a real bitsa, but it's finally working properly!

turns out my chain-loss issues were partly down to the chain being shagged, as i found when i snapped it, so i've thrown a fairly blingy shimano i found in my toolbox on there

the brown flite is on hold for now, on account of the rails being bent to all holy hell. when i get paid i'm gonna get another TT trishock off ebay and recover it brown

rode out on it this evening, and it's BRILLIANT

ok, the stem needs changing for a longer one and it needs flat bars, but it just begs to be thrashed.

the trails i ride are flat for the most part. the only time i felt myself running out of gear was on the road hack to the pub. plus, as an SS it weighs about 22lb with crap components, and doesnt need cleaning
