    love the reverse arched fork and front mounted disc brake.


    WTF.

    also it is a trial bike!

    Says it all really :roll: , shouldn't people be required to have a licence to sell bikes, most other things that kill you when sold to ignorant people do (e.g. alcohol. fags & guns :lol: ).

    calm down, they've just flipped part of the photo round in photoshop so everyone can see how amazing the brake looks. Guess they thought no one would notice or it didn't matter that much!

    Does this mean that someone has actually ridden the bike like this?

  • That's brilliant. I remember years ago I was at a scout camp and there was a little bike track laid out with brick and board ramps and stuff. The bike I got given was set up like that, except rigid. I was only about 11, dread to think what else could've been set up wrong if they couldn't figure out which way round the forks should go! Luckily I lived to tell the tale!

    We had a Tesco cat in work this week and I turned to the pic above and asked all what was wrong with the pic and the last person I expected spotted the fault, the girl who believed that a work colleague had a large speeddial button on his landline for his dog to call his mobile :shock:

    You will not believe this.

    I mailed to ask the seller about the forks the way they are and his reply was that the bike came from the shop like that when bought new!!! :shock: :shock:

    It's got one of those headset extension things on so at some point someone's played with it as they definitely aren't standard.
