Re: Custom Lime Alpine 160 UPDATE

Looking good. I also had an issue with the sh!tty screws on Renthal grips. Ended up drilling it out, which is a bit scary when it's attached to a Carbon Renthal bar. Wrote of a decent set of grips, because they would only spend 3 pence on a screw made from cheese.

Re: Orange Alpine 160 build

Very nice. I don't get the haters. British bike, some of which are built in BritIn as well and the simplicity of a single pivot. What's to hate?

Re: Orange Crush 650b

How are you getting on with this? I bought mine a week ago, and have already started changing parts over. Fitted a reverb straight away though.

Re: Custom build Lemon alpine AM 160 28\12\2013

Now after drooling over my 5. You must have upgraded this a little. I was looking on a site called uberbike, they do anodised fasteners, do them in Titanium as well. My 5 is staying nice and subtle, but the Crush is gonna be bling as f@&k. Not fancy a reverb? The new Renthal carbon bars are mint...

I'm on Job seekers allowance at the minute. I used to be a search and rescue pilot in the RAF. But when my wife got pregnant I decided to leave and am now thinking of studying to be a farmer. My brother is also in the Forces, but he flies Apaches for the Army, he's also the coolest Ginger that's eve...

Something different.

Not sure how many people on here will recognise this bike. believe it's a 1997 K2 Pro-flex Animal. Cost me a set of wheels :)

Re: My bikes.

I appreciate your concern, but these bikes get used plenty :) Forest of Dean yesterday. Verderes, freeminers and then Ski Run, which was an eye opener.

Re: Hope Lemon( New pic on page 4 26/03/2014.

Pretty much what the press have said. Excellent wheels, front tyre is pretty good, rear tyre doesn't inspire confidence in loose conditions. I found it much better than expected in the mud though. Cannock Chase (follow the dog) is very sandy and lost the back end loads if hitting berms quickly and f...

Re: Hope Lemon( New pic on page 4 26/03/2014.

Thanks. Took it to Forest of Dean yesterday. Managed to venture onto the DH track that they' used for today's races. I reckon this bike could handle a lot of the DH stuff and maybe even ok for the Alps. Only thing holding it back is me :)

Re: My bikes.

It was bought from an employee. I think most of them get given bikes, even those that don't ride so much.
