Hey, it's held out for 3000 miles of MTBing.
I loved the admiring comment on that forum:

NZ ingenuity rules!

Is it because people in the states thought they could be liable for Gumbys death trap suggestion, or because they couldn't handle the vorb influence?!

Wow - that sort of escalated backwards :huh:

I said I'd post a picture for the witch burners if it failed :sleeping:


It's not that we don't believe you, Gumby. It's just that we don't believe you.
Plus I daresay many vorbers want to know where they too can get alu frames welded with their preferred mod without fear of catastrophic failure.

Perhaps a photo of the bike with todays paper, and contact details of the magician welder?


C'mon Gumby, flick us a pic...

The below photo reminded me of this thread. This guy thought better of messing with the head tube though.

There's some funny stuff there if you're a Facebook person.

At this point it's just a fork. If it had any suspension his front mudguard would be buzzing the tyre.
