 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

 @steve9train: 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.

 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.
  • + 2
 @Endurahbrah: They should make a clunker with disc brakes!
  • + 2
 @SintraFreeride: 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.
  • + 1
 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. vimeo.com/51119615

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

 Everyone got the same tires for the event, as well as helmets.

 Making all those cuts with a hack saw Is crazy. That would take so long.

 That kicked all the ass.
