Muddy fox were aleays one of those brands that I never had BITD because 'everyone else had one' but not I wish I had. A bit like MK1 Fiesta XR2's, I'd look silly owning one now, wish I had had one then!

Oh! I like Press Gang too. :D

No not press gang (although i did watch it and funny to see Dexter on Bo Selecta! :lol: )

No it was a CITV effort, but a gang of cycle couriers in ( I expect) London early 90's . Sure they all had Muddy Foxes. and tehre were loads of cool shots of wheels spinning as they whizzed though the streets. sure i'm not imagining it. Can't remember loads about it like..

As for XR2's, i did have one, but it was Retro by the time i got my mucky hands on it! :lol:
Great Fun, most fun i ever had in a FWD

RIP :cry:

Streetwise is the TV programme you're thinking of.

It was partly responsible for my desire to get a job as a cycle courier.








I didn't though!

does anyone remember a episode of Jim'll Fix It where a kid got to ride a Muddy Fox?

might have been a titanium model, if memory serves me right

he got to keep it at the end of the show
