The dream came true

 Dear pink bike! Today is the official day in which I have woke up EVERY DAY for the last 12 months. Religiously to watch VOD. Since June 29th 2012. I have not missed a single VOD. Even to the point where it pissed my ex off. This video is ace! It's nice to see an old bike take so much stick! Thanks!

 ....would this be the reason she's now your ex?
  • + 35
 Haha... No mate, I was married to her, she tried to stop me racing as it meant we couldn't spend weekends together... THAT'S whys she's my ex...... Wife. lol the VOD just aggravated the situation hahahaha tyres over tits any day! Smile

 Stop riding, she said. Rode away, I did Salute

 Haha I laughed my head off when I gained my freedom again... She however. Did not lol.

 U no id have to say that has been the case a couple times with me, but idk, tits are prety amazingly specatcularly awesome
  • + 6
 Lol... Due to tits... Well females. I left a career in the army after 5 years. Moved in with her. Spent £18k setting up a business which was closed down as things between us didn't work out and I had to move back to my family 200 miles away... I'm now in the process of the RAF sign up. No woman will ever guide the path in which my life takes again... Tyres over tits anyway! Although a bike can break ya as can a woman. Both physically and financially. At least my DH rig will never moan if I spend money, ride another bike, stay in the forces or even if I lock it up in a shed for a month. Bikes ain't needy. Tits are haha. The only thing tits are good for is somewhere to rest ya head while watching tv. Lol. Women are trouble lol..

 He rode better on his supermarket bike
  • + 3
 I don't necessarily think he rode better on his "supermarket bike" @2big4u
The old bike he had would not of handled as well as the new giant... The best way I can describe this... Look at steve peat. He is and always was fast as f*ck! But he looks slow because of how smooth he rides. Same applies here. If you have an old bike you'd look faster as its not as smooth. Is my point getting across anyone? Either way tho. This guy is amazing. And it is such a great thing to see someone keep hold of a bike for that long... I build. Ride and sell with in 18 months. Probably why I'm always on a loss haha.
  • + 1
 I would say that beginings of everyone looks like that. And on old bike his ride looks not bad but the same.
  • + 5
 Thats incredible that he was riding 5 years on a tesco bike and still probably better than me on my stinky!
  • + 3
 Man, the control he gained over the years. Couldn't have deserved it more. Now he absolutely shreds! Most inspiring vid ive ever seen. Good job man!
  • + 1
 Such a RAD video,I am glad that you won a giant, you deserved it you are very progresive and have became very stylish. You have absolutely the potential of running against the world elite, just keep it up an you will see!
  • + 2
 Whats cool is it not like her grew up with a super fancy bike and a world class bike park nearby, he probably built his own trails.
  • + 4
 Ainda preferes a Specialized? he he he Razz
  • + 1
 It just shows its not all about the bike you ride, its about the rider. Look at his skill he had on his supermarket bike now he has a new giant and it just shows how much his skill has improved.
