    “drink water” would be nice. Horrible seeing kids (and adults!) drinking monster etc….

    Some chavvy million KW electric motorbike company for wicked skills in the local park type sponsorship.

    Or Thor copper and hide mallets…

    First reply nails it.

    I have a lot of time for Pilgrims riding, but riding your eMX bike up the local park? Unsubscribe.

    How riding maybe, but his persona…. Zero.

    Rich Energy?

    As an aside, why do folk not like him?, if he can make a living from what he’s doing riding bikes and dicking around then good for him, certainly beats an IT job.

    Please nobody who makes anything I want to buy. Bought an Ergon saddle despite their sponsorship of this guy. Respect Magura for dropping him due to something or the other he did a while back.

    I don’t know much about him, but it’s nice to see him involve and encourage the young locals in that video.

    Personally I find his “Oi, Oi, Oi” character grates, I couldn’t do what he does, and I totally respect the niche he carved out for himself on YouTube and wish him all the best, just don’t wanna watch it

    He can be a bit of a Richard at times, but I’ve not come across another UK Youtuber, except for his mate Tom Cardy who encourages the kids as much.

    Is there another ‘influencer’* on the Tube who does as much to engage with the local kids?

    *Apologies for that word. Off to punish myself with a big stick now.

    Who should sponsor him next?

    What a weird theme for an article. Looking forward to next week’s “Where should Steve Peat go on his holidays?”.

    Some sort of high end tool company, Park whatever…have you seen those contraptions he enjoys building and riding

     

    I honestly think he’d be good for any company that picks him up.

     

    You can tell he just does everything he does for the love of it and clearly gives A LOT of his time encouraging/helping kids.

     

    The fact that he annoys so many judgemental types here on STW can only be a good thing.

    “Some sort of high end tool company, Park whatever…”

    Just in time for Park to bring out their new ‘Headset Fitting Brick’, and ‘Fork Internals Paint Sprayer’ :)

    (Could do with a Park forum fixing tool really, quote/image function is borked yet again)

    Stannley – a good hammer

    Always gobsmacked by how he treated his sponsors kit, but then who would want to have to ride a Haibike, ugly things !

    I dont mind his vids, his riding skills are on another level, and it was noticeable how he was doing less ‘crack a monny o’clock’ in his vids for the last year.

    I assume he makes far more money from Swatch, Canyon and Sur-Ron.

    Very talented bike rider and YouTuber

    What about “Glucozade Port”, it certainly makes you *think* you’re performing better…

    Nobody, all he does is dick about on bikes, how are sponsors getting their money’s worth. But maybe Travis Perkins, cos a kerb stone and a brick seem to be his favourite tools for filing steerers and starnut fitting.

    I enjoyed his messing about, got a bit repetitive, so stopped watching. But this little episode didn’t reflect well on him.

    I don’t know if that’s more offensive to the working class because it implies he’s representative of something, or because it implies you’ll always be working class however well you do.

    Given he’s an absolute melon, Mad Dog 20/20 would be a good fit.

    Seen him a few times at the local park (Twisted Oaks).  He barely gets out of his van before he’s surrounded by kids, but he always spends a bit of time with them.

    Actually a fairly quiet chap when he’s not “Influencing” or “Vlogging”, and seems down to earth.

    I don’t agree with some of his video choices, so I won’t watch them – simple.

    But, the man can seriously ride a bike very very well!

    Why did Singletrack post the article, click bait special. :)

    Why do so many on here add their bitter opinion, life is so unfair when you have a student loan to pay from a less-than-UK average salary. I remember the good old days when only people from nice houses made money from audio-visual output.

    Came here to say marmite! Beaten to it.

    Or maybe OnlyFans

    In that Sam is also a bit like masturbation (edit for the swear filter).

    Enjoyable, but feel ashamed afterwards sometimes

    He seems to have calmed down quite a bit in recent times. I find him less difficult to watch these days.

    What a weird theme for an article. Looking forward to next week’s “Where should Steve Peat go on his holidays?”.

    I don’t think the article is entirely serious. Irreverent and a bit of fun,  like Sam.
