another one from the gram
Cable disc brakes, a home in this party
Is this passable? Bags cost more than the frame.
I mean it's ticking a lot of boxes.
The deda stem and restrap bag make me want to say no, but the bars, grips, tyres, saddle, caradice, road 1x crank me want to pass it
It gets a yess from me but the right of the part won’t make you welcome
If someone asked what should I buy with my C2W voucher, that Giant must be top of the list as a complete cycle solution. Sensible
Yeah cutting corners. Parts bin, cheap wiggle and then random bijou gravel parts. Lessons to be learnt.
Uploading my own way-too-hipster hybrid.
Surly Pack Rat built with Suntour XC Pro 8-speed index shifting, formerly NOS Michelin WildGrippers, a nice heavy duty rack, and some cool odds and ends.
Pink grips would be the chef's kiss
Mudguards and triples are not allowed I think.
Fitting old and dried-out NOS coloured tyres shows real commitment though.
Spindatt fan eh.
I'd suggest lairy mudflaps and do something neat with the ends of those mudguard struts.
Could be way off the mark with this one
Edit: fell at the first hurdle with the drop bars didn't I
packrats are sweet as hell, but sadly the tripple and mudguards :(, you could sneak this into the retro mtb thread with the right angle
it does pass the vibe check however, it is definitely a wanker hybrid
@tb i'm glad you've seen the error of your ways
Reading the rules and I feel like my now sadly sold readers fits the bill. I crave validation.
Is there a wanker-approved, at least 50 mm rise, not-extremely-swept-back 31.8 handlebar on the cheaps, or should I start stacking spacers under my quill adapter?
Inb4 just get a Nitto bullmoose (I want to get one though)
@vpCogworks tumbleweed persuader would fit the bill, maybe?
Also the stooge scrambler at 70mm rise
Awesome list, cheers!
Ergotec/Humpert Moon Cruiser?
Might be too swept back - maybe hunt through the rest of the offerings to see if there's anything that tickles your pickle. They're good at listing rise/sweep.
I had a wanker bike before I'd even heard of wanker bikes. Natural born wanker, obviously.
I've gone through the whole Ergotec lineup already, this one is deffo too much backsweep and also a tad narrow I'm afraid. But thank you for your input, appreciated!
Ha yeah. I've a third one stashed in the spares drawer that I got a killer deal on! 😉
