Written on here before about Nick at Revolution Bike Tech in Kingston.
As many of you know a couple of weeks ago I crashed, and had to get some help to do some jobs on my bike.
Nick kindly let me put my bike in his workshop, he stripped her down, did the forks, replaced the subframe bit of fabrication here and there to make her how she looks, and loads more to get me back otr a.s.a.p - despite having a shitload of work on already!
The bike started out looking like this
Then after a crash looked like this
So I decided to make her a little different (i couldn’t afford new bits!):
new forks & headlight
clocks, levers, mirrors
then a quick lunch break
and time for wiring
and im a happy bunny!
It really does look very very different now - some of you wont like it - but i loves it!
And now it’s called “Short Circuit”. Yes, after the movie…!
I was really pleased that Nick sacrificed his Sunday to help me out.
He also improved the handling in his spare time - stiffening some stuff up - making them SV front forks feel like forks instead of pogo sticks! Dnd lowering the front end to help with handing. It really feels amazing to ride now
I’m SO SO SO happy with it. I know some people will definitely not like it… I know some people will be ambivalent about it. To me it doesn’t make sense - it no longer looks like many bikes ive seen - but handles and goes supremely!
Anyway, WELL DONE RBT!
