  1. I did report it to the police yesterday, they didnt have the resorces to interview me yesterday but they have taken a preliminary statement. They are going to take a full statment and take photos of the injury sometime soon.

    I might look into compensation as i missed work (no sick pay as im a summer temp back from uni) also just the whole hassle of 7hrs at A and E, not being able to eat drink and speak properly for a week or so.

    As for the guy hitting me again for going to the police, i dont think that will happen, as i dont even know him. Also if i see him again Ill be bolting it...


  2. Thanks for everyone's sympathy.

    For the people saying "you should have beated the crap out of him" Im not exactly small, 6'1" and not too weedy either around 12stone. But I have never been in a fight and well yes i could have maybe done more damage than he could to me but, he was about 30years old, looked like he'd definatly been in fights before, about 6ft tall and easily 15stone of mostly muscle. And being the single punch punctured my lip i think he would have caused me a lot more harm. As for my brother and his mate theyre both 16 and not exactly the biggest of built people.

    I just took it didnt move, didnt react or anything except spit blood on the floor which made him leave. Which i think was the best and only way to deal with it.

    Anyway i have to be back at work, ill write more later.


  3. Went out riding wednesday evening. At about 9.45pm i was riding on brighton seafront. I stopped for a bit with my brother and his friend. Just kinda standing over my bike.

    Three woman and two blokes (all late 20s) walked past and one of the blokes goes haha they havent got any seats. (the usual :P ) The other goes they must have gone up their arse... Then while walking backwards look at our bikes walked into a post which "went up his arse" so we all laughed because of the irony. Then he flipped and starting coming towards me shouting: "you need f***ing knocking out mate" he then came up to me, me thinking he was gonna start squaring up to me but no, he punched me hard straight in the face. Then started shouting at me to get me off my bike but then realised i was bleeding so walked off.

    I immediatly thought he had broken my nose, due to the large amount of blood. But instead he had split my lip.

    Went to A and E and after 4 hours of waiting to be seen i was seen be a doctor. He told me it was quite bad and needed stitches but that would have to be down by a plastic surgeon because it was on my face. He said the good news was that there was one available and he was willing to see me that evening. But he was in eastbourne. So we had to go there (over 30mins away) After getting there and waiting another hour was finally seen by him.

    After 30mins in surgery:


    2 stitches outside and 4 inside and a very swollen lip. He told me the cut went striaght through the lip hence stiches needed on both sides.

    All i can say is f***ing p**ck :P


  4. Hello all,

    Sorry about the boring topic, but might be getting a GU, I know its a 68mm shell but what width for middleburn isis cranks?

    Thanks in advance.


  5. Well I don't run ISIS but I've heard a few good reports about the FSA platinum pro downhill, think its around £28 from most shops.

    But he's running tapered cranks...

    Really dont go for the koxx one, its just a rebranded cheaper bb and sold for more...

    get a UN52/72 both great bb and will last you fine.


  6. Yeh i did like it, could deffinatly do with some music though, i supose it gives us the option of playing our own in the background, and then no one can go on about it being a bad tune...

    Looks like you have so good moves going down there too!


  7. As I feel I'm improving a lot in the natural department and that i was gonna be very bored today (being picked up from uni tomorrow, but everyone went home yesterday) I though I'd film my ride at Matlock yesterday.

    Here is the video, so of you may find it a little boring as well natural isn't all about "going huge" but i feel its quite nicly chilled and also shows you want Matlock quarry is like to ride if you havent seen/been there before. I love it there. May cost me £6.45 on the train and take 1.5hrs to get there but I'd prefer to do that any day then ride street (even brum (Y))

    Please comment if you download, want to see what people think.



    PS: If trials-shack goes down and i dont notice, post up and ill upload it elsewhere.

  8. Woo i came 6th!! not as good as last time, although there was more people at this one and i did dab less.

    I get a mention on the homepage too lol!! Was a hell of a mission to get there!! Thanks for the lift andy and beau :blink:"

    Really enjoyed this comp, yeh it was windy, but i really prefered the sections. They were a lot more technical and i actually needed to use my trials skills. I found the last comp (knabb quarry) "too easy" like was just like xc courses. I know i dabbed more but that was not being used to riding on loose stuff at slow speeds, also my first comp and having 2 hrs sleep.

    Really looking forward to the next comp, gonna be riding natty all over the summer.

    Big thanks to Steve and co for organising it and with there help for me and my lateness...


  9. Generally if a girl keeps eye contact with you she's interested.

    Just kinda glace at her every now and then, if you make eye contact give her a smile. If she smiles back she'll be interested.

    From there, as you are in like a club im sure you could make conversation easier than say a randomer. I would leave getting her number till a bit later. Talk a few times first. And generally its better to give your number than get hers.

    That way she feels more in control to approach you.

    Be confindent i know its a hell of a lot easier said than done though, I'm the worst at approaching girls. I know that once i say something to them ill be fine, i can talk for ages its just the going up bit.

    Hope that helps a bit,


  10. Ill be there again, gonna try my best to get in the top three in inter...

    With some sleep this time, might be able to do it... placed 5th last time with 2hours sleep and lack of natty riding.

    See you all there (Y)

    As andy said, loads of places to ride just up the road if this place really is crap...

    I think Aust is lying, so that noone turns up and he wins :- :wub:


    Edit: just popped carsington pasture into google...




    Looks quite good to me...

  11. Was a great day, thanks Sue and Charlie and anyone else who helped organise it!!

    Unfortunatly the rain started when we got there, must have been our fault :) But all was still good, rode loads in the rain was good.

    Nice to meet loads of people, kinda recognised a lot of people from videos and stuff but just couldnt think of their TF names. Nice to meet Prawn, Bigman and a few others.

    Top day :-


  12. Just bought a bmx chain for my brother's bike (im home from uni for the weekend) and well forgot to bring my cassette tool and chain whip with me :)

    Any ideas of getting the lock ring off? I can clamp the cassette in a workbench, so i dont need a chain whip. Ive tried using a chisel and hammer, but thats not working (Y)

    Thanks for any help


  13. Should have watched him slowy cycle away on it then bolt after him and fly kick his ass off the bike and watch him go down hard (Y)

    It is my biggest fear, some people try to take my bike from them. Id go proper psyco though i dont think they'd bother with the hassle.

    As it was outside a supermarket (fairly public place) couldnt you have started screaming for help, a security guard or someone would have helped, or it would have at least put the guy off trying to take it.


  14. Its all filmed in Worthing, me and my brother live in Brighton, but worthing is one of the next towns along the seafront and is good to ride there so we went. Also Baz and Dez are awesome riders (from worthing)!!


  15. Ai, we sat there and watched aust go up section 2 i think, and we were just like, wtf, how does he get up there, lol

    and i let u go infront of me in the que, and the obsever got in a muddle, lol was great fun :P :S

    Yeh i gathered it was you with your nice joe maher stickers!

    Hehe he did get very confused. Yeh and aust getting all annoyed at himself saying he was riding crap, yet he floated up that rock :mellow:

    The woman on section 3 couldnt say your name too :D


    Ps: when are the results expected?

  16. ooooh i remember seeing you. i kept thinking you looked like TRA :P

    Hahahha, i thought that too :mellow:

    Lol, i know andy quite well and have never thought that but now you say it i can see it :S

    Really enjoyed yesterday, was my first ever comp and had no idea what to expect. Thanks a lot to all of those who helped me get an idea of what to do etc!!

    Was really nice seeing and meeting people i only knew by what they're like on here or msn.

    As for the comp, was great fun but completely different to what i had expected. I entered myself in intermediate, and the sections were very different to how i imagined them to be.

    When i go and ride natural i'll quite happily hop around on rock all day and attempt so bigger ups etc. But these sections didn't really contain any really difficult objects (rocks) except the beginning of section 7 just couldn't get over that damn rock should have used a dab but i was too suborn and tried it on all three goes, fiving it twice :D

    I found that riding xc a lot really helped me on quite a few sections, like the steep drops or dodgy roll downs. I had the confidence that i could just roll over the stuff.

    Over all scored 41 which i was impressed with as my first go at a comp, also feel i could have got that down to 20 quite easily if i had used a dab in section 7 rather than fiving all three times. Also stupidly fived a couple of other sections.

    In preparation for the next round, i'm taking my bike off to my local hills and riding some xc stuff as i feel that'll help me improve loads. I found that i rarely dabbed trying to go over an obstical, it was more dabbing due to trying to ride up and down the slopes and loose rocks slowly.


    PS: i was on the 26" levelboss with the rear vee and avid disc and nice bluey bits :P
