Pete Jones’s Klein winter bike

The bit of the site where we take a look at interesting or extravagant bikes that the members have cooked up…

Rigid and proud

Winter bike, eh? Just building it up now as it ‘appens, although it
won’t be getting used until the spring.

Warranty replacement frame (i.e. I don’t care if it gets trashed) with rigid forks and hydraulic brakes. I’ve deliberately chosen Magura rim brakes for the rear because it means I can get medieval with the WD40 on the drivetrain after a wet ride, without worrying about pad/disc contamination.

Old meets new

Speaking of drivetrains: thumbshifters and an eight speed cassette. Why bother with anything else? Couple that with my own handbuilt wheels (Hope XC hubs) and I’m ready to go. Maintenance? I don’t need no steenkin’ maintenance…

Got a bike you think we’d be interested in? Drop us a line and tell us about it.
