Morning all,

As some may know I lived on Retrobike up until about 2013 then it became very sporadic at that time I was spiralling into a mental health black hole, my fiancé had left me my job and the industry I worked in was falling apart and just sucking it up and trying to be positive. Unfortunately I couldn’t keep going and ended up setting my bike shop and have been ploughing my time and money into that which is slowly growing to a point.

But in the last 7 years I have gotten my self debt free meet a new lady who I’m marrying this year in November and work full time in a vape shop and run my bike shop on my days off and evenings. And also in a position to come back and chant crap about the good old days of mountain biking :lol:

Feels good to be back and not living a life of constant worry and anxiety

Welcome back and congrats on the new life :D!
Sometimes it's good to look back at the past only for the beautiful bikes that were manufactured back then..

Welcome back even though I'm pretty new here . Been through black times myself with divorce & money woes but life can certainly be better 2nd time round. Me & partner of 14 years are getting hitched this year sometime. Weddings can cost a fortune but ours will cost less than a set of Hope brake pads!

Good luck in your life's new chapter. :wink:
