I have had this old felt dispatch for years. It started out as a road fixed but was then given the worst paint job (sadly no photos) I could do and some flat bars to make it a good town hack and I used to practice trials riding on it, yes really. Couple years in I’ve given it a freshen up and it’s so nice to ride. Walnut on a black Thomson post to complete
Beautiful morning for a rat!
What do you think about my frankenbike/dadcycle? I've invested a total of around 15$ on it, not including the 1/2 dollar for the isolation tape that is responsible for the black parts on the frame, or the child seat that was a gift.
World Champion stripes made out of spaces is a great idea!!
Believe it or not, just ordered some yesterday for my next build!
Ha! Already have the blue... ;)
To be honest, I just wanted to use that gif. Show us the result when you've installed them!
amasing Pinaratllo !!! lovely build !!!
Holy late response
The stem is indeed a sakae Beam or split or whatever, would be super cool on something with cantis because the housing stop is cut into the gap.
This bike only weighs 3lbs less than my steel hardtail which is something.
This is my rat bike. All around bike, road and cross.
Custom modified rack
Rear brake over front brake?
Yes, I’m case of emergency brake the dog in front won’t be hurt.
I'm trying to make a gif of that in my head.
Love it. From the engine to the fuel tank and the clamp on riser bars.
I'm not sure how it stops.
That's no rat bike it's a loser special, I've ranted about these before.
Around here the guys that run them have two things in common: they've lost their licences and ride 'em on the sidewalk.
this the guy who used to razz around old st on it? he got caught by the fuzz in the end
No idea about any of that. This photo was taken north of Toulouse a day ago.
