  • Damn that looks fun!

    Thanks!

  • No need for thanks, looks mega.

    Just thinking I have the parts lying around to build something similar (but a decade or so older)

  • ^ Used to love her but now it's time to say good bye..

  • mmmm name/brand/where to find this front rack? I'm looking for one and this one feels so right

    Apparently it's a 1950's porteur rack. Bought by a friend off eBay.fr, and I bought it from him.

    Cool. Cool cool cool.

  • ...Yeah, that'll probably do it.

  • Gan Well NJS rat I just spotted...

    It's rad and I like it.

  • Built from 100% used parts and it rides great!! :D

  • Should take a link or two out of that chain.

  • Such weird geo on that bike

  • Yup, the chain is an old one and in need of replacing all together really, I wanna get a half link and fit it a bit more snuggly ;)

    As for the geo, the pics do seam to make it look strange, it's not so bad up close. Unfortunately I suspect the the frame has been crashed at some point, when I bought it the forks were some random shite and the frame has some tell-tale distortion in the tt and under the dt. I've replaced the forks and the bike feels mint now, strong, balanced and responsive so it's all goo man!

  • The V Brakes on this something else, spotted this today in Leeds, can't remember if its fixed or not, but I had to stop and take a picture.

  • ^ o_o

  • ^^ what a waste

  • Looks like it has been used loads, so not really a waste.

  • I sort of agree, I don't see the point in having expensive bikes to just sit in a garage and look nice, but I can't help but feel that an incredibly expensive track bike like that wouldn't neccesarily do the job of an everyday beater/get around the place type deal as a bike that cost a fraction of the price. Looks like fun though.

  • The owner probably got a good deal on it and thought why not....

  • Depressingly, it's probably still cheaper than an NJS frame, too...

  • Could someone fill me in on the logic behind the rear triangle layout of Verbs & Noun's Cannondale please? Makes me curious.
