Right so i missed Modfathers Mutiny - a triple threat from some guy on another forum - peter J's volta - all fell at the last point of a 99% deal and then every single person pulled out
so all hopes dashed
so i still longed for a new school ride and kept reading Ride mag and seeing what bikes where out there and specs /parts and companies
I came across Stereo and like there simple but great spec rides and there lush colours - saw the pink/raspberry electro and thought that would be cool - then come 2010/11 colour and the blue looked nuts - but again all was out of reach
once in a while i tap in Stereo bmx to the laptop and see what i'm missing - a sweet looking 10/11 electro blue one comes up - i watch it and see it not sell - a week goes past and i pm the guy and ask if he still has it for sale - this was just before x-mas, and i heard nothing back
2 weeks later i get a pm back saying it's still there - i shoot a price - he says' no and says it still the same price - so i leave it - then he comes back saying that i can have it for *** price before he list it in the local area
I think for a bit and ask where about in chelmsford he is - then i search for a member that may be close - step up Jimwise68 - a true gent, who says he can pick it up for me easy
i send him the money through paypal and he goes to see them with cash
shoots and scores - bendy has a new bike - well sort of as jim can only pack it on friday, to which i'm going on holiday on sunday for a week in the Maldives
so will have to wait another week to get it in my hands
the original add on ebay

jim's pm back with the pictures
"all back safely, took it for a small ride and it rides fooking lovely, proper light and manuals pi55 easy!!
Tempted to get one of these myself, you got a well nice bike here and total bargain.

the price for it was £250
