see, you've done the same as me! a commuter bike shouldn't be too nice! but that's gonna be really nice!! i mean check out the polished fork crown!! we just can't help ourselves can we!! :lol:

miss my karakorum, sold the frame and some other bits to my knob of a brother, who then left it in his back garden and guess what, in the morning it wasn't there, it was the red one, from about '98 i think, damn nice bike. shame. :(

Just checked, sorry, only a 27.2 spare :roll:

Are you sure yours is a 26.8 as it turned out my Tempest was a 27.2 :?

Yeah, I've got a 27.2 and tried it with no luck also posted a query a while back and the consensus was 26.8. Of course I could measure it, but that would be a bit easy :)

I agree with Jonnyboy, that's going to be damned nice for a commuter 8) , why i could never have a hack bike, even that would need to have fancy bits on it :lol:

BTW if you go for a USE post i have a 25-26.8 shim, i've offered it to Gaz so if he passes it's there if ya need it :wink:

Cheers buddy 8) I'll keep it in mind.


Yeah, I had promised to build this as cheap as possible and use it but I've already splurged on brakes which led to new shifters, oh and new bars and a saddle and a new seat collar :roll: :roll: :roll: all of which I had. In fact I also have an alloy GT frame and a set of manitou's, so didin't need this either :lol:
