Bike Needed/Bike Parts Needed

  • Afternoon chaps,

    Hope everyone is well.
    I really want to build up a secon bike and then convert my waugh into my polo bike so can you keep your eyes open oop north for suitable frames/full bikes ?!

    Many thanks,

    Your faithfully,

    Ricky

  • What sort of size you looking for Ricky? 52 or something? Want a track frame?

  • Would really prefer a track frame but went to BLB this morning and tried one of their own brand track frames. The smallest they did was a 49 so if i was to go vintage track frame I'd be looking for a lo-pro which I can't really afford. Other thing I thought of was getting a Subrosa Leatum or getting track ends welded onto the Waugh and then lavishing with parts !?
    Thoughts ?

  • p.s. the 49 was the right size. and the subrosa is the malum !

  • I almost bought a BLB track frame before the gorilla, i think theyre pretty nice, very similar to an IRO Mark V.

    Depends what you want, i guess the subrosa will be better but more of a trick frame?

    wasn't there a bloke you guys met at cambridge welding track ends on for quite cheap? I would get track ends put on the waugh and then spunk money on things that say phil, campagnolo, white industries, paul, zipp, njs and 'barspinnzzz' on them.

    weren't the blb frames a fcking fortune?

    Yes

  • fuck off getting a new one or track ends and enter the magical world of double aerospoke

  • haahhaha, I was so temtped to go and look at a Swobo that was advertised for 650 with double spok action but it sold on the bay instead !

    Thought about the whole trackends a little more. Apparently Superted does them so might pop into 14 and find out a bit more. Then its slavery all the way.....

  • p.s. who was the guy at cambridge phil ?

  • The guy in cambridge was probably Harvey (i think his name on here is 'Crackfox' now)

    ...oh yeah, and im pretty sure blb 'own' frames are in fact repainted IRO's

    good luck ricky, you need a decent polo set-up fo sho :)

  • really ? Didn't know harvey was doing it ! I'll investigate further ! Never realised that about Iro's either !
    I really do need a polo setup and quick !

  • it's a 49cm frame you're after then?

  • yeah. no bigger than a 50cm fram really.

  • hipstaricksta: wouldn't this be perfect size http://www.londonfgss.com/thread29136.ht­ml
    a tad pricey though.

  • Yep, perfect but I now have no monies ! :-(

  • The question is, have you got enough money to get up here next Saturday?

  • What for ???????

  • Wish I could but I've just booked my ticket to come home. Can't afford to come back before it ! :-( Tell McGrath to htfu and do a skid for me.
