It's questionable because the Monkeylites were clamped too tight and kinda cracked the bars but its fiiine
Bought a beater off the forum one month ago, and it was stolen last night. That's not supposed to happen!! Someone took the sign off the signpost, stood on a wheelie bin and lifted it off the top (and then presumably put it in the back of a van as both wheels were locked).
It was so comfortable and like a pack-mule, and now I need a replacement... Comfort and carrying capacity are my main requirements.. Thanks
That seems a lot of work to steal what is supposed to be a beater. How much of a shitter was it?
I know! It was this Specialized one – the seller @mk1mark described it as 'agricultural'.. https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/352232/#comment15460806
A janky Specialized mtb frame with crunchy gears and fat tyres that was actually one of the comfiest rides I've ever owned, and I never thought this would happen! And even more annoyed as I just spent £20 on a rack and bought a new kryptonite, and feel like this might just happen again regardless of how shit it is/how many locks I put on it.
Yeah, if they went to that much effort for it they'd probably have taken anything I guess so at least it was cheap. Retro MTBs and fat tyres and shizzle are in right now so it's probably actually more desirable than some carbon roadie.
This is awesome. Would love to build a klunker.
Thought these were meant to be rare
isn't that the front one a former forumenger's badly rattle canned effort? the tell tale matt black remnants can still be seen
Exactly that, was Max's then Jammy's and has since been mine for a few years
What do people think?
Bear in mind this is how it was before he rattle canned it
What the fuck is wrong with people?
It’s a power move imo :-)
Tall poppy syndrome
These frames where not always worth a ton of money
My poor man’s gangsta...
Built this Cboardman frame (free) .most bits parts bin the rest came to £17. Perfect for commuting. Done some more work. Fitting single speed brake levers and a black spoon saddle.
Maybe too clean for a rat.
