Im not so keen on conventional MTB's, they usually dont handle my size and weight (my GT was one of the few that didnt feel like the whole thing wasnt flexing and stressed) and put a lot of stress on the wrists.
I wouldnt mind making one of these again, a lot of fun on wet grass and about enough exercise I would need each day, also crunching big gears is a cynch, just make sure your feet are not working above your heart :lol:
Just got my daddy bmx, was sick of watching my 6yr old at the skateparks having all the fun. There is quite a few 24" bmx available now as all of us that had a bmx in the 80s freestyle fad have grown up I guess. Went with an Aussie company as well! Colony Eclipse 24
2012 S5 Mix of Ultegra 10 and 11 speed, 10s caplipers 11s derailleurs and levers.
11s does change better and the extra range is good on the rear.
With the medium cage derailleur, I can run a 32t rear cassette.
Has a Sram 10s chainset on the front with 175mm arms and 38/53 rings.
The Zipps are the best upgrade it's had. I need to use them for my ageing legs to hang onto some of the stronger riders where I live
The mighty Aldi 29er. It was cheap and the only way I was going to get onto a MTB anytime soon. Got one for my son as well and still ended up paying less than one would have cost at the lbs. Tektro cable discs and shimano 3x9s alivio. Does the job so far but I've got upgradeitis already :roll:
Ribble frame set and a mix of old ultegra 6600 and 6700 stuff I had laying around.
All weather commuter with a dynohub for reliable lighting. I have battery lights to supplement. Does the job and was cheap.
I have it set up with the bars/seat relationship very similar to the cervelo so I get used to the same postion, same seat also, fizik arione.
I also have a cervelo time trial bike wiyh disc wheel and 85 mm deep front carbon single. Cbfed digging the wheels out and putting them on at the moment. It doesn't get used much anymore but I'd get nothing if I sold it so it hangs around.
