    awesome work! I'm loving all the 90s mtb style colourful bits going on at the moment.

    What does the forum mind recommend for a flat bar bike that can replace my trail mtb and my old orange mtb that does kid carrying, commuting, shopping etc?
    I need flat bars, mudgards, large ish tyres, ideally something I can get as frameset and build myself with some of the bits from the 2 bikes it replaces. Maybe a flat bar straggler, a genesis longitude, what else? Inspire me with pics!

    I did some riding in the chevin woods near Leeds today, that was good. Lot of woodland trails. Apparently Tom pidcock rides there a lot

    There’s the mtb seats where they sit about the top tube but he might be a bit young for that?

    That’s freaking awesome! This is the sort of colour scheme I can get on board with

    Do you have a link to the bell you got? I tried ordering some and they were wayyyy too small to fit on tape

    I’ll take the leopard if it’s still available, the fox top and maybe one of the camo ones. I’ll pm

    Yes not seized, just needed a tap!
    I still feel it’s not a great system as there’s not enough movement to tension the chain with 19x40 I’m running now. Will try a half link chain or 41 ring but neither is ideal on a Ss specific frame
