2nd Bikin Vid - feat. Stuntman Whitham

Hello there my fellow Oldham Bros readers / viewers, today i have completed the biking video that I previously said I couldn't be bothered to edit. Well this entry scores high on the comedic value scale, as you get to see Matt Whitham fall off his bike! What more can you ask for, for those of you who don't know him, he's a nice fellow with a large beard, pity he cant ride a bike though, since he spent well over 600 quid on it.

Well now more to the point of this post... make sure to watch this video, included in it are some casual biking and jumps and stunts. I hope this video goes down as well as the previous bikin' video.

Anyway ill stop blabbering on now... so go watch the video!

Click here to watch the 2nd bikin' vid.

Funny day that was. Next time we have to make a wider launch ramp so I can go at it with some welly as the viewers probably think I'm a puff for taking on the jump slow. Well, if they only knew that the Warrior was 4ft wide and the ramp was 4ft 2inch wide, they'd see what I mean. Shame the camera wasn't rolling when I cleared the landing ramp. Shame it was rolling when I clipped the end with the rear wheels and making a nob of myself nearly getting thrown off the front. Ahhh well, my luck eh. Just thought I'd have to add that anywhoo :)

Extremely enjoyed that video. Ben we understand about the ramp because it did look rather thin. Hope to see more vids in the near future. All the best

It's a pedal bike Andy :)

Also, it seems to be raining today which means it'd be crap to jump in. No grip if anything goes wrong.

Another draw back is I broke the Warrior. Last weekend, Sunday the 7th May, Josh was there to witness me clear a 24ft jump which, when I landed, made a what I could best discribe as a deep popping sound from both from shocks. It's very soft on the front now so I think that the bump valves inside the shocks have split or been completely destroyed. It still runs and everything but will bottom out really easily now so we have to be a little more careful. I've been looking on eBay for some stiffer front shocks.

Also there's a squeeking noise that developed yesterday from the hindge on the rear swingarm, last night I just squirted some WD40 on it to let it soak in and I'm hoping for the best.

Becareful Burl, ask these guys what bike to get and you'll be in debt to the devil... Smiv is obviously going to suggest a Kona bike or maybe the Orange GBR (apros £1500-£2500)eaither way - it aint cheap haha.

Hahaha, Matt's comments are mint. Ahhhh. Anyway, my dad's planning to build a big ramp out of MDF but we're looking for a good place in the field that's not too wet or too rough.
