funny, when thinking about what I was going to write for this post all I could think of was Tennyson…
- Out flew the web and floated wide–
- The mirror crack’d from side to side;
- “The curse is come upon me,” cried
- The Lady of Shalott.
which is stupid really cos this is all about a bike frame rather than a mirror and I certainly ain’t a lady :o) So with that in mind I’ll come straight to the point… sadly my trusty Soma Rush frame cracked, a small fracture extending from the seat-tube slot. Nothing to do with me eating too my ice-creams this summer either, I’m still a svelte (!!) 64kg. Nope, just a weak point in the design I suspect and easily fixed with a brazing torch. I can’t be bothered* but if anyone reading this wants a crack at it then you can have the frameset as pictured (it’s in very good nick, size 55) for £25 inc shipping (in the UK). You might want to respray it after and I’m pretty sure I still have some spare Soma decals kicking around you can use. It will be a solid winter bike for someone… Let me know… it’s too good to consign to the dump.
* can’t be bothered mainly ‘cos it’s a great excuse to have my perfect custom titanium fixed gear winter bike… ;o) Stay tuned for that.
