quote:-

Online bicycle forum for middle age underachievers and jobless men, some of whom who used to cycle in their youth. Most 'retrobikers' spend considerable time attempting to to prove that they did once cycle by obsessing over ageing bicycles, and bicycle-related paraphernalia.

Retrobiking is an international movement which enables it to foster a keen understanding of what colour schemes old bikes were once painted, and also to voice learned opinions on what colour schemes it is possible and desirable to repaint such bicycles following the passage of time.

example:-

I've just found my old mountain bike in the loft, which I used to ride loads BITD! LOL - it's a bit rusty but could be worth loads now. As I've got lots of time on my hands, I thought I might buff it up. Any ideas how much it is worth?

Yes - it's worth about 4 quid, but if you paint it Aqua Fade Tango and buy a NOS grease guard for it, it will be a heroic retro bike. Welcome to Retrobike, retrobiker!


that made me laugh! :lol: we've been rumbled!

It's a 70s film with Phil Daniels and him that played Jim Carver in The Bill in it, I believe. ;)
