  • 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 @Ghirotto­69/#comment14090627

    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.

  • So good!

    Do you know how much it weighs?

  • Thank you.

    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.
