CAB­I­NETS

Performance Bikes (UK) - - The Garage -

‘I wanted some kitchen cab­i­nets af­ter read­ing about a 360 garage with them in, so I looked on Gumtree. A guy was chang­ing his kitchen and he said if I helped him rip the old cab­i­nets out I could keep them, so I did. A few hours of work for a full set of cab­i­nets.’ ‘I prob­a­bly have about 150 mod­els and each one is signed by the rider. I tracked the rid­ers down my­self and got a photo with each one. I’d much rather have a model signed than a bit of pa­per, and it’s an in­vest­ment for the fu­ture. Well, that’s what I tell the wife...’ ‘This is the ac­tual pic­ture I had on my wall as a kid. I used to look at this and dream of rid­ing a Blade. Yes, I do now have one in my garage, but it’s not mine. Yet!’ ‘This was the first bike mag­a­zine I ever bought – PB from Septem­ber 1996. I was at a Scouts camp and it was piss­ing down with rain so we all walked off to the lo­cal newsagent. I was 12 years old and that’s when my love of bikes started.’ ‘These come from Costco in packs of 36 for about £12 and are the best mi­crofi­bre cloths I have ever used. They are fan­tas­tic and so cheap.’
