Great, now we'll need a "too many wheels" section as well.

Joking aside, too bad you're not allowed to ride upright bikes anymore.

I kinda know the feeling, as my doctor banned me from riding anything that has the handlebars below the seat because of chronic back pains.
Luckily my physiologist disagrees and is helping me strengthen the muscles there, otherwise I'd have to stop riding retro too.

Been fancying a CarvX myself, but apparently those never got beyond the concept stadium.

i did ..i had a good look round...had a looksee on some bent forums(as they are called aparantly)...the closest i could afford was a kmx which is very basic ...then i had a quick look on gumtree and this popped up.the seller was very helpful too..

i also like the ice bikes but not the 2000 quid price tag much..i can put lots of retro stuff on this too ...
