    Let’s not go mad on who’s pic it is, I’ve been chatting with him, and he has legitimate concerns about it being hawked round here, after last time. That’s why I didn’t link in the first place.

    It must be harrowing people know he’s a sick can do no wrong Fanboy and now know he’s an utter Bell to boot.

    Legitimate concern that he gets tagged with his heroes ,here’s a little life lesson then you live by the sword , you die by the sword.

    The concerns are nothing to do with being associated with sick. Let’s leave it there.

    Grand, that’s crystal clear now. For a minute there I thought it might’ve been made up reasons

    No matter what the reason they asked us to remove the photo, anyone else reposting it will be dealt with.

    Posting photos of bikes on a bike forum definitely needs strict controls!

    I think he’s just been on the internet for the at least 10 years.

    Given they couldn’t protect the brand name, i’d be amazed if Sick had done a better job at protecting any other parts of their IP anyway

    Not him, but Joe had a lot of crap on the web, not entirely tied in with the Sick connection that he seems to have been playing down. The Sick brand does seem to be a social media carcinogen. Wear gloves guys!

    Oh so internet nobody becomes a celebrity by being a gobshite riding the wave of SICKLORDS then regrets it? Is that what happened?

    At Least Tom has a backbone .

    No he received some bullying and some quite uncesseary abuse from people on the internet, he asked for items to be removed to prevent that happening again. If you think he’s deserved the abuse he received then I suggest you’re part of the problem.

    Who the **** is Joe?

    Phil. Not everyone is an internet hardman like you, nor are they bullet proof. Some (mtbing) ****s started directing homophobic abuse at him, for having a certain brand of bike. I can understand why he wouldn’t want his pics/links to his page paraded around bits of the internet he can’t control. If you can’t, you need to have a long hard look at yourself, or get back under your bridge and let the grown ups carry on talking.

    Now, has anyone seen a Taiwanese container full of frames lately?

    You could say the same about forums that let one set of people say one thing then don’t like it when people retaliate, I think YOU know full well these people picked a side, in his case Sick , then didn’t like it when things weren’t quite going so well for him , a bit like the mob mentality on here only that you don’t have control of what happens off this site eh? Maybe I am part of the problem but I don’t enable it.

    Perhaps a non polite **** OFF in their direction then from him. Maybe he didn’t offer them a fight in the car park as some do.

    Well thank you for demonstrating my point Phil.

    You didn’t miss much. I only saw it briefly, but it just looked a little bit shit and had a weird dildo thing stuck to it under the suspension. Really.

    Picture all of Sicks other noodly tubed rear ends without an isolator (ala Production Privee) feeding lots of sideways loading into the shock itself coupled with a White Industries DOS freewheel mounted Brooklyn Machine Works style.

    Strictly speaking, the pic didn’t belong to them, the minute they uploaded it belonged to Facebook.

    Expect an email from Mark Zuckerberg any minute challenging you to a cage fight.

    And within a day of Tom posting the pic FB and Insta died and you couldn’t upload pics.

    Spooky.

    Looking at their behaviour towards customers I don’t know why they didn’t register the name Nob Cheese.
