Ah jeez, if someone buys and rides that thing…
Comes with free medical insurance
Lol I rode one a bit like that for a few years at uni. Paid £20 for it from a junk shop and called it Bessie
It was indestructible. Never gave it any mechanical attention. Best ride I did on it was Derby to East Midlands airport to get a flight to Turkey. Left it leaning against a car park fence, it was still there when I got back so rode it home.
Gave it to my younger brother when he started uni. He got it nicked within a week. Couple of weeks later he realised one of his profs was riding it but was too embarrassed to say anything 🤷
I mean, I’ve got a clunker for round tow/bike trailer duties. It’s a pos but just about works.
I was mostly shocked by the forks being backwards on that thing.
Blimey so they are
Reminds me, we should have a thread for hack bikes. I had to wd40 and 3 in 1 oil the chain the other day because it was starting to rust stuff. It’s got grip shifters and indexing is shite. But a triple crank and spins up the steepest hills even with a 40kg trailer.
Looking at that bike again- has it got a 700c rear wheel and a 26 inch front? Or just camera angle
Perhaps reversing the forks shelters the rim brakes for an extra 0.5W
It’s more aggressive geometry for ‘street’ handling
Great until you need to turn a tight corner, when you discover you haven’t got enough slack on the brake cables to turn the bars
Not horrific but got to be a dentist/triathlete. A 3k Brompton with carbon wheels, titanium seat post /handlebars and Sram Red crank. Amused me
No Powermeter? just some Halfords shite then.
Kill two birds with one stone.
Cant really pin down why, I have no earthly use for it, but I want that.
Haha, same here, I’m strangely drawn to it for no apparent reason. I don’t own or need a roof box or I might consider it.
Just put an inverted tandem sit-on kayak on the roof. Loads of extra down force
I’ve just seen the model I bought from Galaxy Kayaks for £449 last August is now £649
