    in response to discussion about percentage of bike cost in relation to value of bike:
    I spent about £50 on making that bike plus parts I had knocking about, total overall <£100. I can't remember exactly, but I vaguely remember the lock costing about £20... er does that mean I win? It doesn't feel good.

    @JPT: instead of a good lock i bought a shit bike yesterday. Cheers for trying to make it look like my fault though. Sheesh

    OK it's pretty much this (see pic) with tiny chopped risers (bent these drop bars somehow).

    I had locked it up to a lamp-post with some ABUS cable lock. The metal component that connects the two ends was totally broken in two...

    Building another beater for the moment - ugly enough that hopefully no one will want to nick.

    Thanks for the support guys!

    My beater got nicked from outside the Zebra on Saturday night. Scoundrel smashed the lock to bits.

    Not worth a lot, but would love to see her again. Raleigh frame sprayed black. distinctive features include:

    • Halo Aerorage track rear wheel in horrible high-vis yellow colour (black hub and spokes, Surly 18t cog). Front wheel is some cheap 700c LB black jobby with rusty spokes.
    • Gusset saddle in brown leatherette with white stitching, looks exactly like a Charge spoon (there is only one of these, so if you see it it has to be mine).
    • Teeny-tiny chopped risers (about 30ish cm).
    • Alloy Destructo plaque bolted to the brake mount on the back.

    Would appreciate it if you keep your eyes peeled. Small reward for safe(ish) return.

    my bike has now got a neon pink rolls saddle with a thomson layback post, and neon green tape instead of the pink.

    ^1 million points for having a penchant for clashing neon colours.

    Recent pictures of my bike and face. I went and got matching E-number pink rims now, but only because they was cheap. If I didn't so very enjoy getting a bargain I would have a splendid yellow one on the back again.

    What is the frome wheel??? looks unikack, be careful dont loose any ballbearing

    ^Haha special Maz build. Interpret 'special' as you will, but Maz is a genius.

    I don't like the colour scheme personally, could have just left it with purple with that frame. But like Edscoble says, as long you have a bike, and enjoy riding it :)

    ^Glad you don't like it. Also notice how I have a braking surface on the BACK wheel! mwahahahahaha

    It's a Halo rim laced up to a 16h hub.. I think.
