So it is! Nice!
Current hill climb bike in Snowdonia. I have suffered from hip pain long and seriously enough to forgo any semblance of aesthetic (/can anyone recommend a bike fitter who understands specifically hip problems?)
@scherrit has fitted lots of sufferers.
Cycling pros as well I believe who otherwise might have had to look for another line of work.
There was a single speed mountain bike frame a year ago. Looked NOS, with track style dropouts with the GT logo cast into them.
Went for a ridiculous price, GTs have a devoted following.
I bought it new and cost 1200 GBP in 2014.. I bought it back "cheap" from a friend.. very rarely see the later models of these come up for sale. Don't think they made many before discontinuing them sadly.
Has anyone had any experience with the Planet X ti frames? They seem good value, which is making me hesitant. Have previously had a Van Nicholas, wondering how the quality will compare?
I'm not sure who makes their current frames but they've previously been rebadged Lynskey, Van Nicholas or Reily frames. I had one of the Planet X Lynskey ones ages ago, loved it. I'd imagine the current one are no better or worse quality than Dolan, Spa, Ribble and Kinesis's Titanium offerings.
They are Waltly frames.
not Ti but it is stainless - please excuse the (lack of) decor
I'm enjoying the combination of cut off drops for hill climb weight saving, then a massive saddle bag.
I quite like the lack of decor
Very nice - i've got the 853 version but always wanted the stainless one, great bikes - very nippy
Also liking the lack of decor - few years ago we completely renovated my missus' old flat & every wall & ceiling was skimmed by a very meticulous plasterer, looked like marble - still pissed off she wouldn't let me keep any of it bare & just paint the ceilings... if it was grey plaster & not the pink stuff it might have swung it...
My bianchi EV Ti, not very common as it was produced for a year of two before being replaced by the S9 in 2005
My EV says hello. Excuse the lack of bar tape, tweaking the riding position at the moment.
Picked up cheaply on Ebay about 4 years ago as it was poorly listed with a terrible photograph and collection only. I swapped the original fork out for a new Carve as it was showing its age. It came with an Ultegra 10s triple group which I didn't get on with so it's now running Ultegra 10s compact double, wheels are Hope hubs on Open Pros.
This is my MTB regular rider. A Merlin Oreas (2004) that I bought from @Ghirotto
I swapped out the saddle for a trusty Flite, the narrow USE bars for my Seven Cycles ti bars & changed the tyres from 1.8s to 2.1 rear and 2.3 front. I love it.
Do you know how much it weighs?
I've never weighed either I'm afraid and don't own a pair of scales so I can't check for you. Both could be lighter if I threw a load of money at them but they're light enough for me as they are.
