Theres a company near me that makes bikes and sells them. The name is Langdale Lightweights. If i had the money then i would have one. A few riders around here have them, but i think i was told the cheapest one they do is about £800.
They look good and i think they custom make them and take your measurements down on a bike they have that extends and stuff.
 
Mickle, whilst bowing to your superior knowledge, were only 3,300 bikes imported in 2005? That's less than 64 a week! I'll bet it'll only take a couple of branches of Halfords to deal with that number!
 
they would of gone down this year with all the rain. When i was working in the bike shop all the reps where saying sale's where down by 27% overs where saying upto 31%? so its going to be a lot i think.
