I’ve recently moved away from the car seen in the favor of bikes (cheaper and I get fit), but like most men need a project to me occupied.
I’ve searched the web and spoken with a good friend and came up with a list of possibilities. BUT there are a few limitations:
SS only due to my knees
Rear brake is a must
Budget $800 - $1000 for frame and forks
Bike will be an occasional
Specialisted Langster Pro
Available locally to Melb
At bottom end of budget
No provision for front and rear brakes.
Additional cost for alternative front brake
Frame would need to be modified to fit a rear brake (cost???)
Colossi Low Pro
Provision for rear front and rear brakes
“Check out my Colossi”
Gear Brisbane website doesn’t work properly for me
Provision for a rear brake
Welds are ugly
Rip off designs

Mixed review regarding Leader frame
Unknown bikes Lv1/Lv2

Ryd Masher Pro
Don’t know if a rear brake can be fitted.
Cineli Mash Bolt

Mods required to fit a rear brake
Over to the audience!
