- Unhappy Sick Bicycles Customers. BEWARE!
If we were, I think it would have already happened. Sick Bicycles and Sick Corp are both owned/directed by Jordan and Tim (Lee had no involvement in the latter), and have been for a while. I genuinely think this is a clean break from them by Lee, having been screwed over for the last year.Posted 2 months agofunkrodentSubscriber
Oooh, I do like the comparisons between Sick! and Rich. Potty mouthed, hairy CEOs (if that job title really applies), both convicted of being somewhat economical with the truth (one in the court of public opinion, t’other in a real court), both selling a product that seems to exist more in the imagination than reality (though according to Rich’s twitter account the cans are being stocked by a petrol station chain in Indiana, so that’s okay then), both seem to be actually clothing companies with a sideline in their so-called main product.
Interestingly nowhere on Rich’s website does it list the ingredients of their so-called premium energy drink, but it was developed “with scientists”, so that’s okay then too.
In the old days this kind of thing was the domain of the smooth talking bar stewards. Now it seems the bearded trash talkers have moved in. Different clothes, same end result. Whoever stumped up the cash for their Formula 1 adventures is going to get burned methinks..Posted 2 months agobatman11Member
I never had any interest in sick from the start but have vicariously followed there fall from grace with interest as I’m very local to them.
What i will say is Jordan was looking very relaxed in Worthing on Sunday with his family spending your hard earned cash on shizzle!
over all though it sucks for all of us when people mug you off and thx god it’s only really happened to me once with another very well regarded company along time ago! Frame was put together by a blind monkey! Or perhaps that’s a blind monekey could of put it together better I’m not sure🤪Posted 2 months agoWoodentopMember

Preorder discounts are open for the strictly limited edition illness pedals. These are our take on the classic Brooklyn…weeksySubscriber

£100 for them pedals ! Woah !Posted 2 months agorussyhSubscriber
There is 40% off the at the moment making them £60, you would be mad to buy most SS stuff at full up money, there is always a discount code available. Even then though £100 for U.K. made pedals doesn’t seem far away. These are not my cup o tea, but you can bet they will sell em in bucket loadsPosted 2 months agodissonanceSubscriber
Be interesting to see if the bikes that are currently branded as Sick

Being charitable I would go with him wanting a clean break from them and setting up a new company. So fair amount of similarity with the old bikes given the same designer but thats it. I cant see Marino building for them though not without all the cash up front and no pedals from superstars.
If it isnt him splitting off surely they would have the brains to make sure the brands cant be connected?Rubber_BuccaneerSubscriber
a cursery glance at who they follow and who the followers are on insta would suggest that they arent particularly distancing themselves
I followed Lee’s instagram when he was coming up with interesting (to me at least) designs for Sick. All he has done is changed the account name from ‘a Sick engineer’ to ‘industrybikeworks’Posted 2 months agodangeourbrainSubscriber
To be fair to Lee if he is going out on his own he has a sh*t ton of lessons learnt from working with Sick.
Don’t count your chickens. Much of the whole sick mess – it at least seems from the outside – is largely exacerbated if not outright caused by their inability to recognise, let alone learn from, the very obvious lessons of their errors.
Lee might be a completely different case but if he is he’s left it very late to jump ship.Posted 2 months ago
