I remember this topic from a few years back: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=83317, I think when I saw them I did a double-take, doubting myself.

It was a complete load of rubbish. I don't know why they bothered to better the John Duttine version!

The original version predates the BBC series with John Duttine by about 30 years. It starred Howard Keel, and was dreadful. It would have been better if Keel had been allowed to sing, and if there'd been some MTBs in it.

Now I've got the concept of Little-Local-Bike-Shop-of-Horrors stuck in my head.
