So this is my first project, I was after a singlespeed bike for general family riding and wizzing about on. After buying a 93 clockwork and P7 frame, I settled on the P7 as I liked the geometry better.

after much thought and alot of autosol I decided that the frame wasn't doing it for me in the state it was, so it went for a new coat.

So now the build is well underway, I still need a few parts, and I carn't decide if I prefer the Schwalbe Big Apples or an off road tire.

Looking good! I had one of these a few years back with Pace forks and it was a really lively bike! I've always liked the look of those Big Apples, are they heavy?

Go here and on the options ABOVE the picture click on " ALL SIZES " like this...

Image


Select LARGE or MEDIUM like this...


Image


Look at option " 2 " which is underneath the picture and looks like this...

Image



Click on it a few times until it all goes blue...

Image

Legally and technically you're supposed to use the REALLY complicated b*ll*cks of option ONE because of copyright, p1ss taking websquatters and pornographers but you seem a trustworthy chap so use simple option 2 and keep quiet. Drag and drop that blue bit into your posting box like this...

Image




Next put an IMG with square brackets on the front of it like this...

Image


Then put an IMG and square brackets with a FORWARD SLASH on the back of it like this...

Image


You should end up with something that looks like this...

Image


Next, this is the important part...

Press the damned PREVIEW button first!!

It's fun watching people consistently fart it up....for about 10 seconds. Check your results please before clicking the " Post " button.


Now post up some nice piccies of yer lush bike!

( Hope this helps )
