Married, two kids, two dogs and a cat. I am the real life Stig of the Dump. Spend my time fixing up old bike parts pulled out of skips and tips or given by the local bike shop that have been taken off bikes for new parts. Every bit of my bike has been from one of these places and stripped down to it's bare components and lovingly restored to it's former glory...waste not want not....nuff said

First Ride: Nicolai Mojo GeoMetron
Too much conversation about the frame geometry, stack, reach, fit........blah. Question, is it good to ride? Does it perform? Will it snap like a twig when I hit some big descents, rocky trails or heavy landings? Coz it looks like it would with the skinny tubing. Is it butt ugly and would my mates take the piss out of me for riding what looks like a budget catalogue bike? These are the important questions we need answering.

Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking Injuries
I have nerve damage around my left hip due to a big fail, dislocating my hip. Can stick pins in it now without feeling a thing, great party trick as a human pin cushion.

2015 British Downhill Series Dates Announced
I would love to see an event in ENGLAND just like everyone else and Gisburn Forest would be an awesome place to do it. There are some good hardstands where the trucks could set up and some ass kicking runs through some heavy tech sections.
