 The physio said to him you should exercise, buy a bike maybe. He went to the LBS, they sold him the oldest shelf warmer. Few custom tweaks, strictly practical and free of social media and pinkbike influence. Now hes a legend on the trails within battery range of his house

 @xice: No chance bikes are sitting on shelves for long bud. You been living under a rock?
  • 18 2
 @xice: He bought it in 2016, was paralyzed 2 years ago, which means he was riding before his accident. As someone who has broken 8 vertebrae in the last 2.5 years, I have only respect for this legend!
Go and put your prejudges where they belong, Up your arse!

 @RidleyRijder: what do you mean by prejudice?? Sure hes a legend!
  • 1 3
 @xice: Definition of prejudice:
a: preconceived judgment or opinion
2a: an adverse opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge
b: an instance of such judgment or opinion
c: an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, a group, a race, or their supposed characteristics

I may have been a bit harsh with the 'up your ...' thing, but I don't like comments like that. Especially since I'm also in the business of selling bikes and helping people. Also I took it a bit to personal with all my accidents of the last couple of years. Sorry about that.

 @RidleyRijder: Little side note... My dad is one year younger than the highlander above. Currently sitting in a wheel chair in hospital (paying bitterly for 40 years of smoking). I'd happily sacrifice one kidney, if he could make a comeback 1/10th of the ebike fella.

 Mmm…black pudding.

  • 1 1
 Wondered if that was black pud or haggis? More likely to get the latter in a "full Scottish" brekkie, no?
  • 1 0
 @chakaping: you're more likely to get black pudding I reckon, but if you don't get both it's not the full experience
  • 2 0
 @chakaping: Not in brekkie, it's the tattie scone and lorne over link sausage that make it particularly Scottish.
Haggis is for lunch/ dinner/ supper.
  • 3 1
 @christinachapetta I hope you at least tried the black pud before offloading it to Tom. Nothing like a full Scottish breakfast bap to fuel a ride on the 7 staines; lorne, bacon, black puddin, tattie scone, ana fried egg in a large soft roll.

 Wait wait... You actually CAN have fun on an 8 year old bike without kashima, matching decals, glove box?? I'm confused.

 Is there a single bike in this video not running fidlock bottle system? They've taken over the world pretty fast.

 for good reason! they just work so well

 @SpencerBaum: Ran it for a while and really liked it. Doesn’t work on my ripmo xl as somehow it’s such a long reach to the BB that I can’t “feel” the magnets engage and have trouble putting it back while riding. Also can’t fit an 850. But ya, it’s such a clean look.
  • 2 0
 I love those but the magnets just aren't strong enough to handle rough trails at pace - after losing two I went back to the trie & true systems. Maybe one day!
