unfortunately they turn into dust if you crash them.

Especially when you are riding down front street in Tynemouth to do the drop into the moat at the priory.

pedal pedal, hop, high fat low fat dust...

i sold these bitd they were heavy but stiff untill they literally turned to jelly you could put your foot on the bb and pull the wheels making 90 degrees with the frame maybe they have an internal structure that breaks down? a good concept just poorly executed.

They used to have a steel bar running up the middle of the downtube. A lot of the time though this either corroded through or fractured so the frames flexed as much as a slinky spring. The other common problem was that they had a very fragile gear side dropout.
