15th August 2013, I left my bike in my van, the only night that year, the next day, it was no longer in my van. It wasn’t until a couple days later that it really hit home, the bike that I had been building, aiming for MY perfect bike, I had finally made it yet now it was gone. After finding out from the bike shop that it would cost £3k to build it back up, and that it wasn’t covered by any insurance my heart sank and it was back to the drawing board. Sad times 🙁
Hopefully someone out there is having fun on some trails somewhere, I hate to think it’s rotting behind a caravan and being neglected.
