..maybe they should change position sometimes so she doesn't have all of his weight on top... :wink:

Or give her a good work out. No, not that way. Just some mechanical overhauling..

time to make this a little bit more sensible. Keith's a 1996 Privateer.... which technically means he is a trek. oh dear. still. he looks cool, and this is what matters.

Keith will be built with a black LX group, including cantis. i have some redwall IRC tyres and my DIY brown saddle to go on.

Call me silly ( oh go on ) but aren't those re-badged RST forks? Look at the top caps on the legs.
Sh1t Keir, that's gotta be the BEST paint scheme Keith ever did.
