I would be great to know his name and say thanks!


Sounds very much like Andy he went out around midnight on a Klein and has a Coventry accent...another guy on here Makster mentioned seeing him helping out a guy with "mechanical issues" and he stopped briefly to offer help aswell...

Hello Retrobikers!

Newbie here, just coming on to say a HUGE THANKYOU to one of your members that was my Good Samaritan in the middle of the night at Mayhem.

A stick had put my mech into my wheel, snapped a hanger, snapped a spoke, pushed the spoke through the side wall of my tyre and turned my chain inside out.

One (at one point two) retrobikers stopped trailside to lend a hand to a ranting, cursing ball of fury that was me!

Luckily I had my tools, gas and spare hanger (don't leave home without one!), but what they gave me was calm. You really helped me to stay calm(ish) as I fixed one job, put the bike together, found the next problem, fixed it, found the next problem, started again.......

You were really supportive and encouraging and that helped me keep myself together.

Whoever you are you where a legend, you did not need to stop, or stay, you lost your own time and probably had to put up with a fair bit of my ranting!!! Thank you.

I just about managed to nurse the bike back around the next 3/4 lap, all the time terrified that the now bent, noisily clicking, mech would catch again.

I hppe that enjoyed the rest of your laps and had a great weekend, once again - thanks!

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D


Was he handsome debonair with a huge knob

Hi Andy :P

I'm sure Mark said that Andy was on his knees "helping" someone in the woods, in the dark ;)

Did he give good head?

You too?....... :lol: .........I was referring to me, I did at least a 300 degree turn, perhaps ten one legged hops, butt naked, as ungraceful as you like, to look up and see I wasn't unnoticed!.......should really have waved, but found myself skulking back behind the tent.......shamed!...... :lol:
