- whats your best excuse for not riding scary bits?
Why! Did she answer the the phone?
I wish, unfortunately my wife did;
“Errrm, I fell off my bike and I’ve hurt my leg. I’m in an 4×4 ambulance but once I get my breath back and this dead leg goes away I’ll be coming home”
She wasn’t fooled and asked to speak to one of the paramedics.
For the 4 days I was in hospital following the op to have my leg reattached my daughter refused to do a poo.
I got home collapsed on the sofa had daughter sat on my good knee and then, within about 2 minutes, she let the entire backlog out.
We virtually had to hose the lounge out afterwards.Posted 6 years agoTurnerGuyMember
Amongst mine are:
1. “my cranks aren’t warrantied for jumping”
2. “there is a weight limit on my wheels – they are not for jumping”
3. “my collarbone is still strengthening”
4. “my bikes a bit nervous on the steeps, with a 70degree HA and 100mm forks”
I do find problems mostly on steepish stuff where it has been loosened up by people with much fatter tyres than me, really justifies excuse 4 justified when combined with narrow xc tyres.
My Flux frame never came with stickers so to the casual observer it looks like a 5 spot, even though the forks are 100mm.
So I plan to get some Flux stickers on it to give me some justification for wimping out.Posted 6 years ago
