Pijin Custom Bike No.2 ?

Metal Rebel ContenderThe money is no object Pijin bike got sold within a week of being built. Didn't even have time to take some pics and post on this blog... which is a shame as it was simply the best bike Pijin has built so far. So how do we top that one? We've just managed to get in the Metal Rebel Contender frame which we have been waiting months for. Definitely worth the wait... Carlos should be building it up on Tuesday unless Jingles decides to buy it before then (you know you want it James!).

Integrated seat clampLightning dropout
It tips our scales at 5.02lb which is slightly less than the manufacturer's quoted weights (must be a first!). Has lightning streaks cut out of the dropouts the integrated seat clamp means there is hardly any seat tube protruding from the top tube - be good for those who really like to slam their seat down. Look out for our custom build in the shop window. Should be on display with 2 other custom builds. We're getting one from Profile Racing. Should be a Mulville frame decked out with the best Profile bits. And Steve from Shindig is doing a custom build using a Take Ivy frame with Drive parts...

Backyard qualifiers up in Bristol today. Good luck to Carlos, Jake, Slosh, Farmer Dan, Tom (little Slosh), Alex (little Joe) and everybody else who is entering!

Last bit of news for today is that Carlos bought a pair of girls jeans from H&M yesterday. Oh dear...
