Flipside, the story of this bike goes kinda dope.

Mannie rode this for a while. Peeps kept saying rock on. I eventually said his bike was crap and we shouldn't keep buffing him up as he's gunna get hurt. Got attacked for it. Got defended cause that bike is sketch. CR suggested a fundraiser, Tom organized it, and now the kid has a pretty sweet bike.

Pinkbike community is honestly dope af.

thanks for sharing that Sherb. I recall when Mannie first posted it up. I had no idea a fund raiser was going on in the background. I would have definitely kicked in. Frown

Great story, and hats off to all of you who helped someone who seems like a pretty good kid. Salute

You could have installed a rear brake Wink

Nice story, he must have been overjoyed

He insisted he had a rear brake already - that avid juicy 5 of whatever it was from the old build got carried over.

We also got him a D-lock and a TSG helmet. It was rad AF

Sherb being a bit harsh about the kid's bike was one of the best things that happened to him! Got him a sweet rig

He eventually got one, some heavy hitters from the us came in with heavy donations and the rest of us scrambled and messaged around on pb to find the parts

This is pretty much true, handful of quite generous cash donations from the US and Canada, some great parts donations from guys in the UK and then a bunch of smaller cash donations from my friendship group (mostly Loughborough University recent-grads in the UK). A few people including Jesp donated a bunch of their time to search for parts.

Just shows, although we may all be a*sholes, we can still do some good

That's so wholesome and nice. Nice work all around.

Here's a couple NSFW pictures to make this Wednesday even worse




Cheers to piggies everywhere

John McAfee died in a Spanish prison of alleged suicide. He has repeatedly made comments stating that if he is found dead of a suicide, it was murder.
