    Re: Klunker b/o

    A Klunker is the name given to the original mountain bikes that were created in Marin County, CA back in the 70s.

    Guy's like Joe Breeze, Gary Fisher, Alan Bonds, Charlie Kelly, Tom Ritchey are some of the pioneers of the sport and they created the Klunker.

    You can watch the trailer for the documentary called "KLUNKERZ" here:

    Re: Klunker b/o

    I definably want to build a klunker.. My biggest problem is I don't have near enough time to build all the things I want :( Maybe a build off would give me the motivation?

    Re: Klunker b/o

    I think we could do a Klunker inspired mini build off.

    This keeps everyone from thinking they have to build a spot on replica of one of Alan's bikes above.

    It would totally be for fun...although I may have a prize for best Klunker compliments of Billy Savage. :wink:

    Are you hitting "Submit" or are you hitting "Save" when you finish the post?

    Re: Klunker b/o

    That has happened to me twice a while back, both times it was a long winded post and when I submitted it it never appeared, I just resubmitted a shorter version and it worked. Could it have to do with the size of the post?
