Well I've lurked about on here for a while, bought some stuff, and got seriously jealous over some of your bikes. So here's my Carrera Fury. Bought for £200 off Ebay :)

The seller described it as being in a lot worse condition than it was, the frame has a few dings and a fair few chips, but I'm not fussed. Only thing I had to change to make it rideable was to get a new seat/ post/ pedals/ chainrings & tubes. I've also got a new chain, cassette, grips and recently bought some Nobby Nics. I thought I'd got on someone else's bike when I'd put the Nobby Nics on! It's like night & day :D .

Oh also changed the pads to A2Z Blue organics and had the back one bled.
Next up on the list is a Joplin 4, I reckon the magnesium look of the shaft (is it magnesium?) will go well with the forks. Then after that switching it to 2x10 or 2x9. Whatever I can get done cheapest. Sick of chain slap.

Cheers all _Dan.

    Good work, very nice buy. Move the rear brake cable forward a bit to tighten it around the rear stay.
  • Bargain indeed I reckon! Will do Chunkers, cheers.
