I usually crash due to acting like a tool, so I pop up, wriggle the brake lever like I know what I'm doing, and pedal out of site so I can cry in private.

This one seems intriguing, but how is it steered?


This rig reminds me of an episode of Southpark. U know the episode i'm talking about.

I want a tri bike or maybe a cross by Surley. Maybe a Litespeed Blade tri bike. Nicest bike i've ridden was my friends Eddie Merchx.

Clean that bike immediatly :police: :D

What is it mate ??? (not really up on mountain bikes :-[)

It was cleaned after that bike ride, it was a little while ago. The bike now has a Fenix Bike Light mount on the front near the handlebars. I'll have to get a quick review done one day, as I haven't seen anybody else with one. My L2D fits in very snuggy, and its easy to operate the torch as its right near your mits :D

Anyway, my bike is a Carerra LRS3 - http://www.bikemagic.com/review/reviewproduct.asp?sp=332575698920342967346&v=1&rpn=29154

I've had it for about a year and its been great, never let me down whilst I've been out. Even though it was from Halfords originally it has a Kona frame and I got it second hand so didn't pay anywhere near the RRP :)

Very nice mate (done a quick google as I'm not an expert on bike bits) and those manitou forks look damn good. I have Rock Shox on mine, they're one of their lower models in the range but they're good enough for me.

I had one for a while, but decided it was overkill.  I prefer the TwoFish Lockblock for its simplicity.

That's the one I had.  I found that I didn't need the angle (left to right) adjustment, and the TwoFish will accept a wider variety of flashlight bodies.

I've nothing against the Fenix though, it works very well.

I mainly just wondered because I know Fenix do one which is velcro and just wondered how good that one was. Those TwoFish don't look bad though.

I've always wondered how those "flexy" Ibis' ride.  It seems to me that it would be a great singletrack bike.

Some trippy bikes in this thread.    All I have is my boring Specialized Stumpy Comp.   Serves me well though.

Yeah it does take quite a lot to master fixie's, I'd love to be able to ride a pure fixed wheel, as they weigh next to nothing, and look stunning, but I need gears coz of my duff foot :(
