Name, Steve, age 37.

Been working with bikes for the last 10 years, into MTB on and off since early 90's. Owned more bikes n parts than I remember, earned the nickname 'Parts' at work due to this.

Used to have my own workshop at home which had more high end kit in it than the shop I worked in (just about), but this room had other uses in store.

All my disposable income used to go to bike's, music, Hi-Fi n drink, back in the old days I had no mortgage, or car and shared rent with my girlfriend, five years ago I gave up cycling sold all my bikes, most bike parts, spares and such, due to having kids.
Now I am getting back into it all.

This is a pic of me, this was probably one of the last times I did any proper off road, things had been slowing down before this too a little. Relationships eh, women are like bikes, they like a lot of attention....

I still listen to it too. :wink: Let's not forget Black Flag for the L.A. bands, and Beefeater and Scream for the D.C. scene. Agent Orange was a great band, and I still find myself humming Circle Jerks version of Put a Little Love in your Heart (off Wild in the Streets?). He he, those were the good old days. Put up the pic with your mohawk...here's mine in 1988 :D

I still love DK. One of the best punk bands ever if you ask me. But in the late 80's I was a Discharge freak. My top two were them and G.B.H. Great bands on both sides of the pond, but I always leaned a little more toward the British punk/hardcore over the American and Canadian. But there was always room for all the American bands mentioned, plus Minor Threat, Agnostic Front, Descendents, 7 Seconds and so on.

How about X-ray Specs, the Damned, the Addicts, the Adverts and Vice Squad?

Dick is a legend. Still have a copy of World's Apart! Brilliant album.
