I had a couple of hours on the bike last night, up to Birtle and back again. Last night was the first time I’d ever ridden a “standard”, DN6 steel, made for a not-mental fork, On One Inbred – quite surprising really (although not surprising when you consider I’ve never actually owned one, I just know loads of people that do). Budge had been having some problems getting his rear mech tickety-boo so I decided that I’d ride it and hopefully sort it while I was out.
I thought it was great. Despite the over-damped fork and narrow bars the bike rides just like the way folk say they do. Towards the end of the ride I ended up wanting one. Oh dear.
Oh, the chain was too long.
No reasonable offer refused. One careful owner with no idea about bike maintenance!
Non of your la-di-da titanium nonsense. Taiwanese steel designed by some bloke in a shed in Walsden is the only way to fly.
well you’re the one that bought a mass-produced full-suspension linkage-o-matic for riding around in the woods…
…I know. I’m using it as a storage rack for flat tyres and somewhere to keep my mould collection.
