Re: SPINNING ..... FUN OR HELL ......

I used to do 6 spin classes a week some being double sessions, loved it, broke 7 bikes in 6 years or should i say parts, have a dodgy heart valve now so gave it up years ago, cannot do high intensity stuff anymore.

Re: Alternative to Jones H bar ?

Sure those bugle bars are on ebay! Also check out Rose Bikes online as they have loads of bar choices including Humpert bars.

Re: Moulton alfine 11

Cool, did you do any mods to the rear fork to fit the hub as a few say its a straight fit yet some have cold set them? Will post pics when I get a chance as have no broadband to hook up my PC so relying on my phone and it won't let me upload any pics from their either!

Re: Moulton alfine 11

I do have some bike mechanic skills and built a few custom motorbikes also so not bad with a spanner, makes more sense to me to go the frame only or tsr9 route and like you say depending on price of parts I can get I bet its cheaper than the shop custom route paying for shop time and full retail pri...
