Thanks for the linkage. Been debating about one for a while, so noted for the future. Good reports.

Shame that fixed have put in a 25 post minimum to even view the for sale section. It used to be good to take a look through there.

But is it really so hard to contribute 25 posts?

If thats your kind of thing, its not hard. But do I want to contribute 25 for the pleasure of seeing whats being sold for what price? Not really. It was a far better barometer of pricing than ebay, thats for sure.

Your choice I guess... I'm sure however in the space of less than three weeks, with ony 1 - 2 posts per day you can easily get there...

Or you coud pm a mod and ask nicely.....

I was looking at that one there myself, but I was a bit put off by the re-enforced section where the head tube meets the down tube.
Looks a bit sus to me.

ive got one. the gussetted section near the HT is a good idea IMO and shoudl give you peace of mind if anything. good buy for the money, comes with headset, seatpost and seatpost binder too.
if i get killed while out on my bike i dont want a 'memorial ride' by random punters i have never met.
