Time to give up smoking next. I hope.
Can anyone tell me if this bike is any good for a rank amateur? Mostly for use on roads, maybe a few trails.
Think I can get it for about £265
well, tbh, it's not the best one. The whole shifting components, fork and rims are pretty low budget. If you want to just use it on paved roads (and not too often) it may be ok, but I would not suggest to ride it on trails.
No helmet. No lights. Vintage rusted road bike. No shower. Tight jeans. 50s hairstyle. No brain. HIPSTER. #hipster #fixie
I almost had a collision with a hipster.

How you're doing, Pasko? haven't seen much riding pics recently. Too much Triathlon, eh?
I am a selfdesctructive guy. Leave me my smokes
This year is road riding/running/swimming year for me, mate. Everybody needs a change once in a while, yes?
Very true. I won't give up biking, but skating is fun, too. And much easier to do where I live. It's fun to see fast progression, in biking I wasn't getting much further due to personal limits (skills, balls and condition).
You need to ride with better and more aggressive ballsy people. I am an avid snowboarder but I never tried skateboarding. HA!
I got people here that skate downhill with 60 km/h. And the slope is right before my house. But I don't even look at them right now. I need my teeth for a little while still.
But, concerning bike riding, you're totally right. I rode with two pros once in a bikepark and it was really cool to follow them and know the speed you need for certain obstacles.
similar. But in fact, it takes a lot less steep slope to scare me, as I can't break by sliding yet.
Power slides rock, just get some thick gloves...
This rig is on my Christmas wish list
All you folks are making me jealous with your flashy gear and killer scenery. So, I went and bought myself an entry level hardtail to see what all this mtb commotion is all about, planning to hit some fire trails on the weekend.
Great. So you make us jealous, as it is ****ing winter here. Have fun and enjoy the trails! Don't go just for paved roads ;-)
I found this ad by Giant great...
Been in to biking since moving back to Stockholm. How can you avoid it? In bicycle popularity its coming shortly after the two first bicycle mega-metropolitans, Amsterdam and Copenhagen. Around 200k people commute to work every day with their muscle driven two wheeler. I love it!!!!
Anyways first off, a real freak, a head turner for sure. M5 20/20: (its effing fast)
Crescent 601 retro (Världsmästarcykeln). Very nice ride. Its has a flip-flop hub but Im riding freewheel.
Home built rex. I had an old rex frame lying around. I painted it, bought new wheels, schwalbe delta cruisers creme color, brooks 66, leather handle and porteur handlebars. The fenders come from Gilles Berthoud. Its has only a coaster brake. Rolls like no other. Came out neat.
the last one is effin' dope. Unfortunately I didn't ride my bike for months, as I do all commuting on my longboard now.
