This just arrived from eBay land :D Got it for a bit of a bargain to be honest, it's coming home with me this weekend to be ragged about a bit.

  • You'll enjoy that, a mate of mine used to have one and he says he really regrets selling it because it was so much fun.

  • That's why I've bought it. I wanted a bike I can just throw around and have some fun with. I'll also be able to have a ride around town and practise drops and tings 8)

  • That's a rapid stable expansion you've got going on there fella.

    Good work.
  • I'm up to 5 now. I'm going to get rid of a couple though. Not enough room, or need for some anymore.
    Cheers though :D

    Figured I'd update this than start a new thread.

    So, I've done a few upgrades to Blender since I bought it (18 months ago! Wow!)
    Got new headset, grips, forks, pedals, rotors and saddle. Since the photo above though, it's got a whole new chainset too. It's now a 1x9 setup.

    Still need to get a new seat clamp and possibly a white stem. Need to sort the brakes out too as they're a bit squidgy (Probably another bleed, though I may get some new brakes if I can find a good offer).
    Can't wait to get this thrown about :D

    Looking good 8)

    A Blender was on my shortlist. If I'd managed to get a ride on one I'd maybe have a Blender now instead of my BFe.

    My mates got a BFe, he loves it. I love the Blender too, it's so much fun ragging it about the place. Not so great on long days in the saddle though, but maybe the Spoon will change that.

    Hoping to get some orange decals for the forks...

    I luv the way that blender just begs to be ridden just looking at it 8) .
