    not bad for a beginner, but once you get more expensive bikes, you will have a better bike to ride and look at. but that probably is enough for thr riding you do(i'm guessing)

    There's no need for that.

    I imagine for the money it's a decent enough no nonsense starter bike. No pointless full sus, no rubbish cable discs. Hopefully just a reliable value bike.

    Pathetic sarcasm. :twisted:

    Enjoy every bike you ride be it from humble origins or one you aspire to ride - mocking only highlights your obvious narrow mindedness.

    This, i used to ride some right heaps of censored , i used to ride my barracuda full susser every weekend doing 15 mile or so XC rides back when i was about 13 or so... That's what started it off for me! I took a break for a year or so, but now i'm back, and i wouldn't know all the local routes or have the passion like i do now if it wasn't for those rides back when i was younger on my cheapo argos bikes.

    Fair play mate - you're right - its great your getting out and it does what you want/need it to... :D

    You always get twats coming up with censored like that... childish and narrow minded - amoebas.

    Anyway, get out and ride.... and enjoy! 8)
  • If you're just out on the town on it id swap the chunky tyres for some slicks or semi slicks at least!

    Also maybe some metal pedals? Plastic ones are dangerous in the wet!!

    BRILLIANT - well done mate. Been toying with the idea of doing something like this myself for ages but didn't have the nerve.....
    Love the mirrors they're ace. Where did you get the Rockstar energy drink stickers from please, they'd look great on my stabilisers.
  • MarlowMarlow Posts: 31
    ....just noticed the ingenious cable tie arrangement holding the front mudguard on, lovely touch - why use 1 when 7 look soooo much cooler
  • i got the stickers from rockstar energy drink directly
    i had to use all them cable ties to make the front mud guard that secure as before it was too loose and flapping about.

    hmm. A Succesful troll, maybe? Either way, keep up the good work.
  • keep up the work, don'T worry about some of the roosters on this site. You don't have to have some blingy or flashy bike to enjoy biking.

    Glad you've got what you need.
