Klein Attitude Comp '98 MTB Blue - Hill munching fun bike.
'There's gold in dem der hills!' And with the right MTB Attitude I will find those golden nuggets!
When I was a squatter in London - Stoke Newington - I commuted to The City (Speed Couriers)
Got evicted and moved to Amsterdam for 2 years and was in commuter cycling nirvana.
Got a job as a cook for a TV crew and was living the dream cycling to work on my dutch bike.
A car cut me up once in Amsterdam and I thought nothing of it. However, all the cyclists behind me went into a mental rage, they whizzed past me in hot pursuit of the car. The car stopped at the lights and proceeded to have its outer shell kicked in by the dutch cycling mafia.
I sauntered up to the melee as the car screeched off and the mafiosi checked to see if I was ok. ( I'm sure one of them had a horses head in their backpack)
I hadn't quite fully grasped the dutch language at this point but I'm certain a few choice compound swear words were spat out.
Clearly in Amsterdam any cutting up of cyclists by cars is collectively dealt with. It was the only time in 2 years that I was cut up about it.
