    ... and if we just ... New Ferrous Singlespeed / 29er p0rn :-)

    This is the newest frame from the great mind of Raoul Morley, the guy behind Ferrous.

    A singlespeed 29er with Paul forkends, custom rigid forks, built with Paul, Mavic, Bontrager, Jones H-bars and Thomson

    Super sweet green paint with a multi-coloured glitter top coat. Other nice touches include a stainless steel head badge, anti-rub stip on the side of the head tube and Fe engraved caps on the wishbone stays



    More images of this and other Ferrous frames HERE

    Now all I have to do is perswade the Mrs I "need" another bike

    Do you have any idea how hard it is to weigh a baby's fart?

    Easy: weigh baby, wait for it to fart, imediatly weigh again

    Even the wheels were pretty light considering the heavy touring rims, plain gauge spokes and beefy tyres. I think Raoul went for durability that light weight on this build, but with only 1 gear its easy to keep the lbs down.

    I told Becca at the weekend that I was planning on getting a Ferrous over the winter......she took it well (the bottle of wine and slap-up take-away helped!)

    You have to see it in the flesh to fully appreciate it. I had my first proper look at it on Sunday. The paint's far more stunning in real life and the overall look of it is spot on.

    I'm going to ask Raoul to make me one of those sometime next year I think.

    Stand on the bathroom scales with the baby, primed to fart. Write down the combined weight. Baby farts and you write down the weight post-flatulence. Subtract the latter from the former.

    The accuracy of the scales doesn't matter, as long as they are precise.

    Will it accept the near-future WTB 2.35" Epic Wolf? It being rigid and all, perhaps a welcome option.

    They're all fully custom Cloxxki so if that was a requirement you'd get it.
