If anyone gets bored of looking at your collection, i think they must be on the wrong forum? :D

May i suggest Retro-knitting as an alternative.











Al, a dirty grubby bike lovin' old tart!! and i lovin' it. :wink:

Although i do like a chunky knit!! :shock:

May I suggest a future project, one that will require using very different components fron what are on the bikes now, and a departure from your style:

An early 80's MTB :)

Perhaps you have already done this...if so, link me...please :wink:

well, got to be honest, i like a challenge but got to admit that i do not like the early 80's mountainbikes.
for me the early 90's is much more attractive, and my goal is that the next bike should be more interesting/nice then the previous once,..
i have been thinking about an very early Merlin but i guess that is again to much of the same, you got any suggestions?
as a target : the next one should be very special and top of the range

An early hand built steel bike, fillet brazed, with one-off parts, also made by hand, like a cunningham, ritchey, moots, fat chance (pre-tig welding), mountain goat, or something more rare etc

80's MTBs are beautiful as well, just in a different way 8)
