As promised, my daily A to B bike, which I found in the street and spent whooping £30 to restore.
Be gentle, I'm injured
Probably the most desperate bike lock in the tri-country region

Reliably total and utter shit maybe...

I can see from the grip and the saddle all that I need to know on how the bike handles. Well, with a bike that heavy at least you can't go fast so crashes must not be a big deal.

side note, i will never buy those ESIs again. had them three weeks and they're already trashed Madder

Yeeaaahhhh, I run ESI grips for months. I think your issue is more to do with rider error.
Pro tip, try to keep your bike upright and under you rather than in the ditch.

Its hard to roast such a boring rig, you got something against colour or something? What were you going for, the "vanilla" of bikes? Its like you told the bike shop to make sure absolutely nothing stands out about it.

Lynskey bootleg

My last roast was weak so I feel obliged to throw another one on the pyre.

2001 called and wants it's XC bike back. Lynskey still in business or did you find that turd in the dump?? I hope you didn't give them money on purpose.

Lynsky? Isn’t that a litespeed/Kona etc frame? What happened to the twisted square down tube?

Damn did you willingly buy a lynskey? you must be at least one of two kinds of people; over 60 years old or a total idiot. What a waste of spec on a frame that can only be described as a metallic wet noodle. A frame made out of crushed soda cans welded together would still be better than that.

You forgot to mention the other lynskey owner:
Daddy gave it to me when he bought his A.) Niner B.) Pivot C.) upgraded to a gravel grinder....

It’s like those bike parts are relegated to an artificial hip

Ah yes, the 13 year old stick-legged kid at the xc race on his dad's old bike. "my pops just got a sweet new Cannondale Lefty"

Putting my wife's beer cruiser up for the cause. I miss this thread. This bike is from a time when entry level specialized bikes came with double butted cromoly tubesets!

Makes it more desirable to thieves for that sweet insurance pay out.

Isn’t that rack worth twice as much as the ride? Maybe that’s what the lock is for.
