Fell out of the gumtree

it might save you money but probably won't save your front teeth

 I saw this advertised in Gumtree. Interesting set-up. 

If you wish to buy this bike contact g.hincapie@asda-bso.com

Gotta love that aero brake mount - not sure how it would benefit a bike such as this but hey, each to their own!

not all carbon is the same.

Don't often see a bike on Gumtree with both wheels. Although I'm sure there's a Perfectly Reasonable Explanation for the ones that have the front wheel missing Thinking

I see this so many times, commuting... forks back to front, genius! I even stopped one lady to explain, wish I hadn't!

Do those forks make Endos easier to pull off?

Yep, done the same to a father and son once as the kid's bike looked like a crash waiting to happen. The father gave me a mouthful of abuse for being nosey. I am guessing he built it up for his son and 'knew what he was doing!'

yeah we do indeed...the usual "but I got it brand new from asda, tesco, jjb, halford etc etc...and I/They built it up properly, you dont have an f-ing clue" come along with it when we say, erm, this bike is going to cause your child to get injured.
