  1. I do like a proper saddle on a trials bike! stunning! Can I nab these for my insta please? @trials_bikes_with_saddles
  2. haha just trying to beat the quote from the other place... I put £ not $
  3. See if Ashton will build you a justice for £2699
  4. wow! those bars are lovely, shame they are that annoying stem clamp size.
  5. ...or a 105 cassette and shifter? I have all these parts ready to go. @Ross McArthur has already made it perfectly clear that I have to fit the mech, even if it's just for some photos. And the photos need to be in good areas, no washing machines or shoes in the background
  6. This is on its way, 100mm, 5 degree.
  7. You know it!
  8. the black azonic bars in good condition were a bitch to track down, took me almost a year to get some that had a good rise and not been cut down, these are 2.5 rise, 710 wide. front brake has just arrived, going for a BB7 on a hope mount as I want the brake levers matching for now, I'll see how I get on with the V brake, I have a few maguras knocking about so it can always be changed at a later date, I do like the simplicity of a V though for getting the bike in and out the car. wheels will be pro 2 hubs in black (I already have these) and they are being laced to black DMR Dee Vee rims finished off with holy roller 2.4s. there will be no grinds on the rims either.
  9. Yep, brand new old stock
  10. Incredible find thanks to @Brettoll Saw it Saturday, ordered it after 2 minutes of discovering it - it arrived today. I was a teenage rider in the 90s and by the time I’d hit my 20s my love for Trials has fizzled out to a certain extent. I saw an MBUK article around 2003/4ish with Edd Tongue on one of these and thought, wow, that’s cool! Not too bothered about riding again, never got to own one. I started riding on and off again 8 years later, by this time they were near enough extinct and inspired had been born. I always thought, I wish I’d bought one of those back in the day... dreams can come true! build to follow, won’t take me too long as I have most the parts good to go. It will be mainly period correct. I’ll do my best! I’m almost 37 now, maybe this is a midlife crisis? Oh wait, no that’s the other 200 odd bikes I’ve had over the years! Hope you guys like it
  11. Yep, burgundy before, when I acquired it from @skuzzbucket it had had about 70% of the paint removed, I had it powder coated and those decals are official Pashley ones!
  12. Please delete
  13. Cool thanks guys, seems the best out there for that price. 60 clicks will be fine for me, it’s just for a skate park basher bike with my 3 year old son thanks for your honesty @Adam@TartyBikes I appreciate that, you could have said they’re rubbish and instead by ‘this one’ from us. Cheers
  14. Guys, Have any of you ever used a tensile 60 click freewheel? And are they strong/reliable? I have a 2002 onza t-mag in the garage which id like to build for a bit of a laugh..and I don’t want it breaking the bank £30 on eBay seems reasonable, but is there a reason for that? I’m not looking to do massive moves but I am 15 stone so it will take a bit of weight.
