    Got the old Pioneer up and running. Used an old a head converter and single alloy crank from the shed, alivio rd from dead m-trax, original wheels and tyres. Got Pioneer rack from my mate, who also donated his old bar, grips and bar ends to the cause.
    Had to buy new cables, brake blocks and put in new cartridge bb. Ideally needs new seat post, wheels and tyres.
    Can't imagine any bike thief bothering to even get the bolt cutters out the rucksack for it, even if they did, it weighs more than my house!
    But for some strange reason I quite like it.

    Looks a very solid well built bike,and I'm intrigued to know what the tyres are ?

    Took the Pioneer rat bike out for a little test ride with my son. Doesn't look much, but it rides nicely, smooth & quiet.
  6. And that's all that matters really.

    I've got my Criterium back on the road :smile:

    It's been out of action since October 2015 when I managed to detach the rear dropout from the chainstay on an audax, but after having the frame welded back together it's back in service and feels as nice as ever. I have replacement decals for it but they are waiting until I've decided about getting it powder coated.

    Andrew's JO'G to Ft William Pics Sept 2011 009.jpg A rare shot of the "speed" machine. This was day one of JOG to Drumnadrochit via Bettyhill and Lairg 2011. A great start.
    We walked the canal to Fort William from there.
