Bob Jackson


This just arrived at my work, feeling really quite emotional! Just got to build it up now and see how she flys! Got a box full of parts [have been arriving steadily over the last month from England, Scotland, Japan, USA and France] mostly campag with a pinch of nitto, cinelli, deep v's and one of those dope kmc color chains. Hopefully be back soon with full spec and pics of road-ready glory! Peace out. }i{

Damn dude where did you score this one? Very nice! I suppose I'll eventually have to find a different home for the Black and Pink one I've got coming soon, hehe...

That would be very nice. Thank you.

Got it direct from Bob J. (www.bobjacksoncycles.co.uk) in Leeds. Loads of options available including chrome lugs etc. What I didn't realise though is getting it direct it needs a couple finishing touches. Had to book it into Brick Lane Bikes to cut down the fork to fit my headset and smooth inside the seatpost shaft (some rogue rough metal in there!). With hindsight I woulda got it from Brick Lane (same price anyway) and they would've sorted this stuff for no extra cost.

I heard Mercian is down too with quality. Didn't expect it from Jackson tho. A pity for craftsmanship ...
