New bike – almost

I nearly bought a new bike frame today. Except they’d run out, so I didn’t. My credit card is quite thankful for that.

I didn’t really need it anyway, I was only buying it because it was pink.

    You came >< that close to joining the new SS-L cult.

    Myself, Simon and Gary will stick with our Kona’s. :-)

    You missed out on the SS Kona though.

    Your current Kona don’t count if you SS it as it ain’t got horizontal dropouts…… (and it’s not a Kaboom or Unit)

    YES GRANT, that is why i said i WILL make it into them all.. already in the Inbred, and even the Broken Inbred, and the Pink 1x1ers, next Kona, don’t really want a Unit, want a Kaboom, will wait there will be one sooner or later…. hopefully.

    Kill Gary and steal his Kaboon. :-)

    I don;t want to kill gary, but if it’s the only chance i’ll have to get one, he better watch out :o)

    My new bike needs nothing.

    Except pimpier brake calipers and a pimpier seatpost, not the cheap thing in there at the mo.

    Otherwise it seems perfect. :-)

    All Sora, bar the brake calipers (cheap Tektro things) and rims Mavic black road jobbers…SWEET!!!!)
