Carbon for racing - steel for passion.

Safron bike in video is a custom build by a Saffa living in London?  Think he has even posted on the hub?

 

Edit: Was correct, found link :) https://www.bikehub....age-1?hl=safron

I only own steel bikes now...

 

After setting the stable free it is 1x steel 160mm HT funbike, 1 x rigid SS, 1 x vintage steel race bike with modern components and 1 x SS drop bar monster cross/disc roadie/fixie depending on wheelset...

 

All other bikes have been vanquished..... except for a Blackmarket Killswitch if anyone is after one. I would let it go for a decent price

Framesaver? Not necessary in Gauteng imo.

 

 

Also, frames treated with framesaver are apparently a bitch to repair and repaint......
