Rat bikes should be maintained with as little cost as possible.

Kludge fixes are welcome as are scuffed, scratched and well used frames and/or parts.

Stock builds are not welcome.

Form follows function, but style wins. Ingenuity will be awarded.

Posting your own bike is fine.

The original idea sounded like this:

I think this bike should be the beginnings of the ALL MOUNTAIN RATBIKE forum. Bikes have to be custom hardtail builds and well ridden with a mix of parts that provide value and performance, not 12,000 stock carbon super bikes cause then any rich guy could just win.

Anybody?

That Badger is tripping me out! Is that a 100mm fork on a Badger?

2x2, just awesome perfect!

Thanks mate Smile
Yes, it's a 100mm fork and a 2x1 setup. 36 + 24 in the front and an 18t sprocket in the rear.

And it's a Bagger. Not a Badger.

Good thread! Feel like some real gems could make there way here. And yes, I love that Explosif.
