Im glad someone else has decided to make a comment, Too many people sit on the fence rather than talking which is a shame as its a forum and noone is trying to upset people or anoy them hey?
I did write a reply earlier but held it back as wanted to see how other people felt? But here is what I put anyway and it very much relates to sinnett.
Can I just start by highlighting that this is a forum, not trying to anoy or pi@@ anyone off just my thoughts....
restoring a true retro bike
But this is the problem.... I dont think anyone actually knows what is meant by a true retro bike??
Use my bikes as a example ....I dont take offence that easy
Take my background first, I completly missed the early 90`s, I came into biking mid-90`s and straight into V brakes (I think my rockhopper had cantis) but all in all when getting serious V brakes were really the start. So this reflects in my mindset of what is retro to me and what is just older stuff thats not that much interest.... Which is the same as say what is retro to joe Blogs but more importantly what is retro to yourself
So lets look at my collection of bikes again in my eyes is all retro to me? But Are any of them actually retro enough to qualify?? Most id say are owned by other members and be shown through readers bikes pages, So other people must be on the same wave length
1994 Zaskar (very unoriginal being built modern-ish)
c16r ( rigid forks)
What is retro….If any?
