    Morning all, I've had a fair bit of interest via PMs so far. A few have asked for a couple more photos so please find them below. Please PM me if you are interested!

    Would you take £130 inc postage?

    Thanks for your offer HarryB, but I'll hold out for better offers at the moment.

    eek I meant £160

    Hasumi, I'm PMing you now. Scrub that you need more posts to PM! Let me know if you're serious.

    One last thing, you may have noticed that as the stays measure 135mm apart and the track hubs are 120mm, I have respaced the hub which has offset the wheel slightly. But don't worry the wheel clears the stays on both sides easily and I haven't had any problems with it.

    This is rad, have a free bump. If I had the money I'd totally buy this for winter, as I'm in Norwich too.

    I'll take £150 without the postage? I'll even ride it round to you so I can have that last ride on it!

    Hi all,

    For sale I have my Rat Bike, its served me well for the past two maybe three winters. Its great fun, with a nice easy gear so you can easily slow down brakeless (42-16). It wheelies and bar spins really well which is a good laugh. I built it as a winter beater which takes on anything, good for riding across grass land and then back onto roads etc. Looks like a heap of crap so unlikely to receive any unwanted attention, but at the same time I think it looks really cool!

    Its an old Ralliegh MTB frame that I had shot blasted. I built up some Halo Freedom Disc 26" rims onto system ex hubs, so they're strong and light. Its got Park Identiti Forks with a disc mount so you can run a brake if necessary. The bars are old S&M race bars that I ground down. It has an FSA pig headset. It has Odessey Plastic Pedals and some awesome foot straps which I bought off someone on here. Other things include Suntour cranks and a KMC chain with three chain links from a chain whip...

    There is some surface rust near the bottom bracket as I ground all the paint back and then clear coated it with a rattle can, must have missed that area. I give it coat about this time each year before winter and then grind the flakey bits off after winter and repeat.

    Unless you live in Norwich I'll have to post it.

    Can't get my flickr account to work.

    I've attached them below.

    I call it The Rat Bike, its served me well for the past two maybe three winters. Its great fun, with a nice easy gear so can easily slow down brakeless (42-16).

And the rest was out of the parts bin from old fixed gears/MTBs I had. Oh nearly forgot, it has Odessey Plastic Pedals and some awesome foot straps which I bought off someone on here.

    Not really given a price much thought but figured £150 yesterday evening. Somewhat over your budget but there are actually some quality parts on the it.

    Let me know your thoughts!

    I may have something of interest, just uploading photos...

    I was going to put it in classifieds today but you can have first refusal. Check back in a couple of hours.

    It doesn't help that in the other thread you talk about punishing uppity cyclists by making them test their brakes when they cut you up while you're driving.

    That is a terrible thing to do, I've since read other posts from the OP on other threads and have withdrawn my initial response as a result.

    I cannot fathom the idea of putting somebody else's life in danger purely because they've committed a minor traffic violation, making you angry. Especially as there aren't any consequences that effect you directly.

    Though I'm amusing myself with the idea of the OP becoming angry due to somebody's actions outside the safety of a car. Perhaps someone pushing in front of him in a shop queue and the OP considering how to punish the offender, perhaps a cunning attempt to trip him as he leaves or maybe a shoulder barge to ease him into the path of a bus. Unlikely. In fact I suspect the OP would quietly wait not wanting to confront the offender, but in the safety of a metal box....
