About this deal

And got my money back so gutted because the bike was a really good bike made uphill journeys easy thinking it is a design fault with the weight of bike. Lynn Park, aka Mr Cobra, now has 2 of 5 of these very rare cars and invited me to drive this one the track. Re niggle's comments, the frame does seem to be a bit of a mongrel; it's tricky fitting the rear wheel with the horizontal dropouts and disc brake but can be done. Get padded shorts before the saddle, then try a Charge spoon, if anything I always wear cycling shorts (sometimes under bagies) to stop my balls bouncing around!

So I'd ridden the bike for a couple of 30 mile rides and found it to be comfortable so stuck with it.Despite its performance-oriented nature, the Carrera GT provides a level of comfort suitable for long drives. nothing wrong with the vulcan for the money, and it sounds like you know not to expect it to be the cutting edge of bike technology so you aren't expecting too much of it.

With the saddle at the height it is now my knees do not quite come fully straight although almost and my hips are not rocking. Next time I'm out I'll have a play around with saddle height, there is room to go higher as my legs are slightly bent (although not too much! The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, providing an engaging and thrilling driving experience.Reddit and its partners use cookies and similar technologies to provide you with a better experience. An easy quick setting for the seat height which came from a pro years ago is lean over bike so saddle is in armpit and the centre of crank should be roughly at trigger finger give or take a cm. There should be a slight bend in your knee at the bottom of the pedal stroke and you shouldn't be shifting from side to side as you pedal.

I'm short at 5'7 so that was in 'normal' mode, however I have raised it slightly since taking the photo! I would avoid comfort seats personally as most saddles of that sort means you tend to sink into it and chafe , try moving it forwards and backwards as its amazing how much seat setback and correct height can affect comfort , have a look at this .For instance, I've never done anything with a threadless headset before, so now I've learned how to fit a complete new semi-integrated headset - or at least it seems OK.

The frame number starts with W and was made in 1985, youre right if theyre a carlton, even made in Nottingham as they would of been in that year, they still have prefix of W followed by month then year and then number made during that month. It wasn't identical to my frame which, apart from being a 20", had vertical dropouts and an eccentric bottom bracket. I'm on the look out for a hardtail MTB to get back into biking (last got on the saddle 10+ years ago!

They suggested that I take the frame to my local branch and seek the advice of their "Cycle specialist". Said the components and build quality was better, sorry not much to help you but maybe worth considering? Due to its limited production run, the Porsche Carrera GT has become a highly sought-after collector’s car. All-in-all a satisfying end result, much better than throwing the whole thing in a skip and a good learning exercise. It features a sleek and low-profile body with distinctive air intakes and a prominent rear spoiler for improved downforce.
