    Do you remember what happened at his initiation? I really didn’t think the stains would ever wash out.

    Who was it a few Christmas ago who got some kind of skintight jumpsuit type thing bought for them ?

    They were persuaded to post a picture of them wearing it and Jamie photoshopped it into another picture with a jar of Vaseline and a glove on the table 😆

    Cute runner – shone brightly and wound lots up for a short time.

    The bloke that tried to get a mouse out of his sofa. He had another thread that was equally funny, but can’t remember it too well now.

    Think I first logged in around 2005? Maybe earlier actually as I did some races with Houns and ChunkyMTB and Luke and jojo, etc in 2007.

    Ahhh, so many good threads. I’ve been on here about 12 years I think. I also liked GeeTee’s personal ad, and the “how do deal with asky people” was funny, some guy getting shafted by his mate, Google Fu is failing me though.

    Actually “Ur bik is Saricin and ur XC jeyboy” is the earliest running joke on here that I remember.

    When I first joined this place had an awful lot of full sus vs hardtail threads, which were mainly about pedalling efficiency. Singlespeeding and Inbred ownership were very well represented.

    Were there threats to track people via their IP addresses in the badger pump thread? The original Yes Tubes page that triggered it all off does not seem to be around any longer, but look what I found on archive.org!

    Both stolen from the MBUK forum where the kids used to hang out, all the grown ups were on STW.

    Oddest thing about early STW was that you could choose a new username every time you posted – it led to quite significant levels of mischief.

    I think “Dick’s Shrew” is the earliest thread I still recall.

    It took me a while to work out that the username field could be edited, as you still had to register a proper account to comment on news articles.

    I had the vague impression that the Saricin stuff started elsewhere but it was well established on here by the time I joined.

    What part of the phrase
    “F*CK OFF!”

    don’t you understand.

    Firstly

    Those images show a tyre WITH A TUBE IN you **** and secondly I’ve never used the Stans system – I HAVE used the eclipse system.

    1. the website is slagging off a product of company – they can sue you for this – justifiable criticism or poor reviews are OK but in this case the website is intentionally setting out to damage the products market.

    2. the images of Oliver Hardy are owned by Larry Harmon Pictures Corp of America and they are already in several legal claims over the use of images of Oliver Hardy without permission.

    3. I might be wrong (I did have a hangover) but I don’t remember you being at wuthering Bikes so what the hell would you know about it? maybe you should get your **** facts straight first before you “just have a laugh” at someone.

    And as for anyone saying

    “oh but we’re laughing with you” Well I think I’m the one who decides that and thats not what I think from here. So for F*CKS SAKE GIVE OVER YOU BUNCH OF F*CKING ARSEHOLES!

    No the white gunbk as explained many times was where I emptied the latex out of a tubless system in order to stick a tube in so I wouldn’t miss the mornings riding. Have a look at the pictures theres a bloody tube in there FFS!

    P.S. Stans No Tubes (TM) have a legal department which is very easy to contact and who read their emails reguarly by the looks of it! How do I know – well guess!

    Has some of this thread been deleted? It doesn’t quite make sense…

    Anyway I’m pretty sure that there is a provision in law for using trademarked/copyright material for the use of parody, though it may only apply to the US (something about free speech and all). This would seem to apply in this case.

    Anyway I find it all pretty funny even though it was “my” tubelesskits that were involved.

    No Jon – Your Tubless kit was NOT involved!

    How many god damn times? The wheel in theat photo has what is technically known as a “TUBE” in it – it can be clearly seen – how then is this a good example of why not to use tubless?

    The reason why the tyre exploded (and the gods help if I have to repeat this any more times) was a “DAMAGED RIM BEAD AND TYRE WALL” due to hitting a bloody great rock descending stairs lane in the dark with lights that kept going out due to a dieing battery! Fun until I hit the said rock!

    As for the law allowing Parady – yes within reason – in this case the parady is intended purely to damage the buisness of “Stans no tube.com” and as such is not covered by the free speach rights under the US constitution!

    Thanks

    Now give over

    I’m off to Asda as the morons dragging screaming children round an over warm supermarket is probably more interesting / enjoyable than you lot!

    It’s a funny picture. People like it and find it amusing. You happen to be in it. People who don’t know you find the picture equally amusing ergo it has nothing to do with what people think of you. You’ve met plenty of the people on here and presumably they weren’t openly masturbating in your presence. What’s the problem?

    Andy
    fair enough I suppose – the reason I find this picture annoying is because it gets posted by some people at least once a week and often in response to an opinion I give about something totally unrelated.

    If they want to discus a subject – great its a forum after all but why keep posting that damn picture time and time again in a totally unrelated thread as if to say “hey this guys opinions are irrelevant look he can’t even blow up a tyre” I find this annoying – I also find the constant posting of it annoying – I’m willing to accept its funny (or at least was) but after 9 months its getting to grate a bit.

    Most of the time the people who are posting weren’t even at Wuthering Bikes and they usually use the picture to ridicule the tubless system – which contary to what they believe does work for some people. But the picture shows me inflating a tyre with a tube in which then ruptured due to a bad rim bead.

    Perhaps my comments above could have been less confrontational but then I would be being just as reasonable to say that others comments have recently been equally abusive or confrontational – sufficiently so that the thread got deleted the other day.

    As to others questions about why I didn’t use a tube before – because at the time I was running the tublesskit (and had been happily for 6 months) in order see what the tublesskit was like – to see if it worked. Just as Singletrack tests kit that the authors may not ordinarily use – to see what its like. Given the choice I will try something for myself and come to an opinion based on experience rather than on the rants of one side or the other of a interest group (well sort of interest group I suppose).

    It turns out that I found out there is a problem with the system that if you hit a big enough rock at enough speed you can sometimes loose all the air (just as you would with a pinch flat) and when this happens sometimes the rim bead gets buggered – just like happens very occasionally with a tube – probably slightly more often to be fair.

    But then I knew the system was a compromise – but lets face it if we weren’t interested in trying anything new we would all still be riding a roadbike frame with rigid forks and we thin wheels (hang on thats cyclocross – just kidding! )

    I now use the system only on the front where it isn’t prone to the increased pressures caused by my weight on a bike! And on the new bike I Mavic UST rims and Conti UST tyres – now you can debate whether UST is worth the money all you like but personally I think the conti vert UST on a mavic rim a stunning combination – I have difficulty getting the damn tyres on and theres no way in hell they are comming off in a hurry on a ride so all in all I can’t see much wrong with them – I stuck a tiny bit of latex in to help them seal round the rim and I have a UST tubless repair kit – never used it in 6 months – so far so good.

    Since I have taken my time to calmly write this I’ve probably missed all sorts of daft, abusive, odd and downright out the ball park comments on this thread but unless any of them are going to add to the thread I’m off to look at the other threads and then find a good book to read whilst listening to some music.

    perhaps this will put an end to this area (although I doubt it).

    Surely the only group who should take offence at this are the “UST” people (Re: end your UST woes), as that is nothing to do with Stan’s No Tubes.

    Re: The Badger, from what I know of Pete he will find your reaction hilarious, even if you’re not the one he was trying to get a rise from.

    hhhhummmmm

    Well then, I can understand why Andy gets a bit annoyed about seeing the picture all over the place, however in such circumstances it’s probably best to feign indifference. It still makes me chuckle, particularly coupled with comments like Mike D’s above. But I can see it getting annoying after a bit.

    Andy Badger you should probably remember that there are far worse things you could have been photographed doing, if the John Bryans of this world can cope with infamous photos I’m sure you can find a way.

    As to the bit about deliberately trying to damage Stan’s notubes business, I don’t think so… there is for some reason so much hyperbole from evangelical advocates of the various tubeless systems (myself prob’ly included) that it needs a contrary view to even it up a bit. Yes they do work great, but none will change your life in any radical way. It’s just a way of going slightly faster and getting less flats.

    children, children, children, now grow up.
    UST isnt for everyone, but if you live in an area where sharp rocks and cactus abound (think Phoenix Arizona) then combined with sealant it is great. In local racing you see half the field on tubeless, sure beats inflating to 60psi to avoid pinch flats, and then still getting a thorn in the tire. I once removed 7 thorns from the tire after a race and it had only lost a couple of PSI.
    If you dont want or need the hassle of the system, greater cost, different technique in putting on the tire, weight increase, then run regular tubes and enjoy the riding. Thats what its all about anyway.
    Well off to do some mountain singletrack. Got a few isolated showers last night after 90 days without rain.
    Enjoy your mud.

    I’ve been laughing my arse off. I’d seen the “Olly” site and thought it was bloody hilarious. Didn;t realise that Pics was you badger and despite hagning around here and bikemagic have *never seen it before*. I have however seen Dan’s penguin version somewhere or other.

    Take a step back and look at it from the point of view of someone not involved. It’s parody pure and simple, and very effective

    And by the way, the only time I’ve seen anything like *your* wheel was not too far from the scence of your incident, up on Sahckleton Moor (just past the (in)famous House of ****): StuN’s back wheel just exploded as he rode up a small rock – we’re talking 2″ high, not even sharp. About 12″ of rim was bent outwards, tyre shredded and 8″ of inner tube un-accounted for to this day. Yep, that’s right, TUBES not UST

    anyway, back to work.

    Regardless of UST/stans/eclipse/whatever performance, that pic of andy is one of the funniest EVER mtbing pictures. One of the only pics I have ever seen which is utterly hilarious to MTBers, but incomprehensible to anyone else (although the penguin version is probably funny to everyone)

    If it were me in the photo instead of Andy, I would be proud.

    Andy Holland, in addition to being an incredible whiner, you are a complete idiot.

    But you make up for your idiocy by being VERY entertaining, which I thank you for.

    “Dear Sirs,

    I am writing with regard to your website, (http://www.paradigmhosting.net/yes_tubes/contact.htm).

    I have passed the URL of your site to Stan’s no tubes manufacturers in order for them to pursue you for damages to sales of their product.

    In addition I note that the images being used in the “testimonials” portion of the website are of myself and a wheel (showing an inertube which was ripped by a damaged rim bead on the tyres.) These images are misleading – the system I use is not “Stans No tubes” system and when these images where taken the wheel being inflated had a tube inside it. Remove the images of myself from the website within the next 48 hours or I will instruct my lawyer to pursue the matter. Under the recent act of parliament the use of images of an individual in a negative light without that persons express permission is an invasion of their privacy and as such I hereby notify you that I am withholding any such permission with regard to the images contained on your website.

    I also wish to inform you that you are breaking copyrighted material as the worldwide publicity rights to all images of Oliver Hardy are owned by the Larry Harmon Pictures Corp. of America.

    Yours Faithfully,

    Mr. A.D. Holland B.Sc., M.Sc., CRFP.’

    #1. Just because your fat ass is in a picture does not mean that you own the copyright to said picture. Have your attorney check into US law.

    #2. It seems that the root of your distress is that you are an extremely insecure person, as evidenced by your posts here and your hilarious email. Perhaps your attorney could recommend a good psychologist, or even a few decent hookers?

    #3. In response to your reaction to the Oliver’s parody site:

    Stuff it up your big fat ass, have a few pints, and get over yourself already.

    Then find someone to buy you a proper sense of humor (hell, one would expect that someone raised in the culture that brought the world Monty Python would have a head start on this part, but you never know….).

    Best of luck!

    p.s. Perhaps I should substitute this picture instead?

    Surely no lawyer (even in today’s bonkers society) would go near a case like this?

    “Please sir, they were making fun of me and wouldn’t stop!”

    Oh boy, I guess I see how you and your pal could make those assumptions but your efforts to get the site closed down are funny considering the real facts.

    I own the domain.

    I have a dedicated server that is hosted by Rackshack so they don’t host the domain.

    Many of Rackshack’s clients run hardcore porn sites so I’m sure the admin guys are laughing their asses off about some Brit whining about a picture of him holding a bike pump in front of a puddle of spooge.

    “Trying to get his site killed was perhaps a bit of a crappy thing to do but then so are the pictures so PeteF I think we’re all square!”

    No problem.

    Just imagine how someone could make a Phd candidate’s life “interesting” if they started to send their University, Rob Janaway, Mark Pollard, Dr. Randolph Donahue, etc. etc. complaints about various things if someone did have a problem with your idea of entertainment.

    Nice Ian mind if I nick it for my website? In fact come to think of it is it OK if I use the images you’ve all come up with – think I’ll make a small gallery of them on the MTB page of my site.

    That was dan or beer, wasn’t it? Back when you could just type in any username for each post so trolling was very simple indeed. One of them was quite funny, the other one mainly tried to get people to click on links to disgusting web sites. I can’t remember which one was which any more.

    Dan, he was funny..
    Beer was weird… Remember clicking on STW early one morning & he’d posted letters as thread titles, then kept them in order so the top four threads spelt out the word JISM 😕

    29 posts, 70 deleted posts. That may be a record (though it does appear to have been aggressively modded, different times…)

    The oldest memey thing I remember may be “you are a troll and I claim my five pounds”.

    You’re probably right about it being the oldest. “You are… and I claim my five pounds” predates not just STW but the Internet. It’s a ‘phrase that pays’ from some newspaper competition or other from forever ago.

    There was a thread where someone unwittingly posted a picture of himself in the air on (half off) his bike and asked someone to fix it in photoshop somehow… Someone must know where the results are.
