Don't snigger! He's just as bad on a push bike, to the point that he has to wear full body armor  ::)

Oi you pair I resemble those remarks!!! ;)

I'd love to see either of you ride 10ft+ vertical drops on a xc MTB with only 100mm travel, or better still drop into a 12ft vert ramp on a 20" wheel bmx, any takers?

And yes I wear full upper body armour cause if I break my shoulder again I may never ride, or worse shoot again. No shame in that from my point of view, and I don't care how I look as long as I'm having fun......my Mum told me to say that part ;)

We actually got a chasey from a security guard for doing wall rides on the canteen of a factory in town at the weekend, made me giggle I enjoy had a chasey for about 20yrs since I was 12!

Anyways, I'm still applying very thin layers of oil painstakingly rubbed in with bare hands, heating the wood with friction as I go. It's still looking better after every layer
But I feel I may need to increase the qty of oil per layer to start building a gloss finish, tempting as it is I'll persist with thin layers for another week or so as I believe this will give the best deepest finish eventually, patience again.
