I love clunkers! Edmonds me so much of the 80's
(May 4, 2016 at 3:56)
Everybody loves Edmond

Noel Edmunds, an 80's fashion icon.

Fucking fat fingers and auto correct... Reminds me....

Edmunston NB...reminds me of there too, great stop on the way to PEI...like the birth place of clunkers i believe. Bob Clunker born Tony Smith change his name in the great wheel size debate of 1908, branded a bike, lifestyle and a location. wait until his 141 9mm takes shape....hahahha

: I knew a guy with the last name Edmeades. Would have been easier if he was named Edmonds.

True spirit of having fun on two wheels.
(May 4, 2016 at 4:51)
Very true, great spirit....There is no way the guys I ride with would be so hard core. I love the dedication

I tried going back to basics with the Transition Clunker --- loved it but the stock rear coaster brake was a bit much (actually, NOT enough). aside from the rear brake, or lack there of, that was a fun bike

I built a Klunker with a coaster brake and it was my least favorite thing about it. Sure the skids were cool and fun, but everywhere else it sucked.
(May 4, 2016 at 12:28)
: They should make a clunker with disc brakes!
(May 4, 2016 at 13:23)
: have you guys tried a rigid single speed? Plenty of "fun" without the shitty brakes and geo. I like having one as a second bike when I haven't much time but I still want my ride to count.
(May 4, 2016 at 15:24)
yeah --- I have been doing single speed for a silly long time ---- dating back to at least 1994ish I was pretty hard core into single speed. I had a whole bunch of true single speeders frames, Surly 1x1, On One Inbred, a could Santa Cruz Chameons, at least three different Kona's, a Mountain Cycle Rumble, just to name a few.
I 'single' handedly turned a boat load of people onto the whole 1x1 but, that Klunker, yeah, it's a hard sell --- coaster brakes sucks for around here.
I think Transition did the Klunker with coaster simply to keep the cost down. FYI - They actually come with a real old skool front brake that actually can't be used with the bike but its in the box only because of some lame-ass legal issue (lame, like putting reflectors on bikes). Love the Klunker but, I can't use it like you're seeing used in that vimeo video

bontrager must hook a lot of builders up with tires. all these guys seem to run em and i see lots of other custom builders use them
(May 5, 2016 at 15:35)
Everyone got the same tires for the event, as well as helmets.
(May 4, 2016 at 9:36)
Making all those cuts with a hack saw Is crazy. That would take so long.
(May 4, 2016 at 5:33)
That kicked all the ass.
(May 4, 2016 at 7:56)
gotta love those bikes. takes me back to a different time. great event.
(May 4, 2016 at 22:06)
Damn that was great! I want to build a Klunker now....
(May 9, 2016 at 6:27)
Where to get those helmets? Cool as f**k!
(May 4, 2016 at 10:25)
Good stuff. Way to represent.
(May 4, 2016 at 9:32)
That was awesome! Looked like a good time.
(May 7, 2016 at 0:37)
That skid at 7:39 was steezy!
