  • Aid looks great Alex. Did the skid comp not make the cut ...lol ;)

  • Another week, another new face and another great ride.
    Critical Mass this friday; 18:30 Custom House Square.

    Kev, I'll look the skid comp video out and try to get it online.

  • Cool Alex, I've been a.w.o.l recently workin crazy hours and got the man flu. Will def be at Critical Mass tho. How could i miss that.. lol :)

  • I'll soon be selling my old French bike. Thought I'd mention it here. I'll put up spec later.

    and don't forget critical mass this friday...

  • Looks like a great route Alex. I'm away working (again) this week unfortunately. Will be there on Friday though.

  • Hey guys, I apologise for the ridiculous 25% gradient in that ride.. Fra - you're lucky you missed it!

    Sounds like a lucky escape ;)

  • Gonna be back in Belfast over xmas, hopefully get a ride with you guys, unfortunately I have no fixed bikes in Belfast so look out for the numpy on the geared bike =P

  • We'll be out each wednesday - leaving custom house square at 6pm. Gears are grand.

  • hey,

    after lurking on here for ages and reading the sheldon website inside out i've decided its time to put the trusty bmx to one side and start a build for getting to and from work as well as faffing about over the weekend.
    i've managed to talk my mtb riding mate in to giving me a hand. tempting him with the lure of free beer. i'm hoping to make this bike as cheap as possible so i was hoping if anyone on here from belfast has any parts, frames, bit and bobs to sell they can give me a shout and i'll give them a good home

    cheers

  • try the dublinfgss site, i think there's a couple of belfast heads on that.

    maybe ask velocio for a belfast sub forum here? from acorns and all that...

  • My cousin tends to have quite a few bits and bobs hanging around the place, get in touch with him and see if he's got anything you need.

  • I've got an old (late 80s) peugeot frame 60 cm ctc seat tube, 58cm ctc top tube you can have if you want. It would need to be repainted and the headset, bb and seatpost are all gonna be difficult to remove. it is free though. drop me a PM if you would like to give it a good home.

  • Who was that mad Irish bloke who worked at Morrison's? Dallat123? I think he was from Belfast.

    Glad to help :-)

    Evil genius.

  • thanks everyone for the replies

    dublinkev - a fine idea. im on it

    mmccarthy - i've sent a message to your cousin. cheers

    fra - thanks for the amazing offer but being a short@rse a 60cm would be waaaaay to big

    cheers all

  • bumpity

  • Lovely to see other people into this kind of thing in Belfast.

    just debating whether to take my time and build up a more expensive frame or just pick up something cheap and work away from there...

    been checking gumtree so far.

  • I spent forever checking gumtree and annoying people on here for parts etc but finally I have a bike that can be used

    I already see myself spending more time and money on it to get it exactly how I want it

    it's been great working on it so far. Beats buying an otp

  • Time to stop lurking.

    Same story here, spent more than if I'd just gone a bought otp. Learnt a few things whilst building up the bike though. Will post in current projects thread for some abuse later.

  • I've seen a load of people from in belfast on fixed these days. There's an older fella that I see on lisburn road/near andersons town road often, on a green one, not sure of make or anything though.

    And I seen a charge plug and another in the university area very often before Uni finished.

    I havent been riding mine much since I crashed into a massive barrier in the ashby when I was a little more than tipsy. Didnt even see the thing, luckily it cushioned my fall as I landed on it but I bent my forks and havent got around to fitting the other set/painting the other set yet... It feels os weird riding it with a bent fork, crab stylie yo!

    I might be able to make it to some of the wednesday nights now that I dont work evenings if they still happen?

  • There seems to be one or two belfast people popping up on here. I say we start a thread/ask kindly for a link were we can keep in touch, organise rides etc. Who's with me?
