Then can we go take them to bike park Wales?
Followed by a 10 mile time trial for these 'do it all' bikes.
I'm in. Dogs have to come too, though.
Well while we are at it, back to herne hill for some track.
Can you even buy bikes for 50 bucks these days? I assumed Covid dried up the supply of shitters?
VB definitely needs to add a trigger so all your posts containing an image just go straight to anti-porn thread.
If anyone is interested in going for a bike ride (I know, shocking concept).
I'm headed to Shoreham on Sunday for a loop around the South Downs and up past Arundel, following this route: https://cycle.travel/map/journey/259200
40 miles of impenetrable brambles, stinging nettles and ankle deep mud (post may contain traces of lies).
You say that but I saw @cagimaha do 10 miles of the A21 in 20 mins on his Muddy Fox, I almost married him after that
I recommend altering the drop from Cissbury a little, the road climb (if you're not familiar) from that roundabout is bullshit and everyone drives at mach 3. Roger's lane next to the garden centre leads to a neat little techy climb that I enjoy. Steep but nothing like the climb back up to Chanctonbury from Washington
Thanks! Local knowledge is a winderful thing. Would something like this work?
Yep that's the one – the north/south section there leading to Long Furlong gets a little sloppy but some forestry work was done there recently and they dumped a load of chunky gravel so its much improved. You shouldn't have much of the trademark SDW slime over any of that this weekend tbh. I'm away otherwise I would join!
The vagabond is designed for 29er wheels not 650b. Fugio would be a better option!
Yep. Sorry. You're completely correct!
since we are chatting vagabond, what tyres does it clear? 29"
2.3 i think i have 2" on mine
Can't believe you're building a steel bike
I already own TWO steel bikes (flyer and talbot)
2.3" is max on the rear. 2.8" or more on the front
Here's mine from a recent very wet trip around the west kernow way:
Have I missed your build in a thread somewhere? Very curious how it's turned out. You always make such fantastic looking bikes!
