Making a Modern Bike Resemble a Retro Classic
i so want that bike......looks amazing. I see a guy ride a classic klein in those same colours some mornings to work and i always thought how cool it looks and kudos for actually using it and not storing it away.

Video: The Ultimate Vintage GT Bike Collector
had to sell my zasker le 1994 in the then rare anodized blue that rob warner and others rode. I sold it as a complete bike to fund a holiday as i was skint.....the holiday was shit and have regretted it ever since.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
how good a bike looks does heavily affect peoples views of it......if you disagree then why were suspension fork shock boots removed cos they were much better at stopping scratch damage and ingress of s#it than without them.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
my 2013 commencal looks like it did when i purchased it in early 2015 because i wrapped it with an invisiframe kit just like my other bikes before. I've met many riders that have said that they wrapped there bikes after the first crash and wished they done it as soon as they got the bike. especially when there carbon chips. many people say they like there bikes a bit worn looking but ive never seen anyone deliberately scratch up new bikes to look more how they like.....to each there own but i always assumed that if bikes look like new a few years on theres less incentive to sell it and buy new....that is assuming that your not a new standards chaser :)

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Replace Your Tires?
@Matt115lamb: i ride there as often as possible and for the last few years ive had some very dry days riding in the summer months so things are getting better (or worse depending how you look at it).

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Replace Your Tires?
if i get a hole in a tyre i take the tyre off patch it with some glue and either a sturdy cycle inner-tube patch or piece of old inner-tube (loads left from when i use to run tubes) and then carry on. No point running plugs for any longer than the length of the current bike ride. Surely people dont just throw tyres away if they get a small hole in them.....if it can be fixed for god sake fix it. Unless youre so rich you dont care or your sponsored surely you would do this.

this bike looks old even for 2002 when it was made.....there were better geo bikes even back then.

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
i honestly don't get the whole long front centered bikes when they require extra effort to prevent the front from washing out in a turn. Sure they make you feel comfy and safe on steeper trails but cornering is everything to my riding and ive tried a longer centered bike and it was poop without having to deliberately try to put as much weight as possible on the bars. I have no such issues with shorter bikes. I confess my bike wont feel as stable at speed as these but i guess the trend now is moving away from fast turns and agileness and more about rolling straight lines faster.

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
im betting the meta am 29 would be better..everything i have read says there nothing short of amazing.......oh and its several thousands cheaper. if i had the money it would be the bike i buy next. i should add ive owned 3 commencals and still have a meta sl 1 from 2013 as my main bike of preference so im totally into there products. I skipped the 27.5 ones as they didnt have a link between the rear seat stays and some people said they had issues with shock pivots because of this but this has been remedied on the meta 29.
