Hey all!
This is my first post on retrobike but I've been stalking around for a while now! What a lot of memories it brings back! I've owned, ridden, broken and fixed quite a few bikes since I started in 1994 so I might be some use!
I thought I'd share a photo of my only bike at the moment, a DMR Sidekick. The frame is probably late 90s/early 00s. When I bought it, it was set-up for trials, but since then it has morphed into a simple, sturdy and surprisingly light "razzing around the woods" bike. It is very flickable and great fun to ride! If anyone is interested I can post the specs.
I usually ride at Thetford or Chicksands but I can often be found flying around Cambridge town!
Congrats on a great forum/scene!
Sam

Hey Doug,
I miss Mike's! I bought a Charge Iron from there when I moved to Cambridge in 2007! My girlfriend was using it lots until some scumbag nicked it last August!
