I've ridden a Kula once... Nearly splatted in me pants!

I can vouch for Kona Muni Mula (2000) too, fantastico machine it is!

I leave the thread for a couple of days and look what happens - Jon lowers the tone AGAIN!

Out of interest - why? I can think of lots of reasons as to why you might splat in your pants... from going v fast to a too-bumpy ride to too many bananas for breakfast...

I've been keeping a half-hearted eye out for second-hand bikes but there doesn't really seem to be much happening - either way over budget or 17" frame... but I will keep looking.

Hopefully trying a couple of bikes next week so we'll see what happens... in the meantime I'm drooling over stuff I can't afford!

Yeah - too dark for my liking when the first series was on. It's grown on me though.

It had the same effect on me as going to see a Gerald Scarf exhibition when I was 6. gave (even) me nightmares!

would have thought the sight of a 6-yr-old Jon gave the other exhibition-goers nightmares... ;-)

Bit precocious, weren't you?!

As ever, any thread relating to mtb's gives me an excuse to visit one of my favourite websites and droool.... - pure mtb porn.

Lots of lovely bikes at v low prices. I bought my GT through this lot and it's been fab. They bikes are mostly 2004/2003 stock, but mtb technology (esp for hardtails) has moved on so little in the last couple of years that the heavy discounts only really mean you haven't got this years paint job.
