Once upon a time there was a mountain bike rider who we will call Nick who raced the DUAEL with his good campadre (lap on lap off)
And finished in the money so to speak. Now Nick was a young family man with you know “ limited funds” for bike stuff. His current project was a single speed;
Steel frame, 180 cranks, ebay bits. The last piece in this puzzle was “The Fork”. Expensive!
Picture prize giving at the DUAEL. It’s major random draw time ROCK SHOX SID forks. How good! (I believe there is another pair this year)
Now back to Nick and his good campadre. Place prize collected. Quick nudge “let’s go”. Quietly up to the car and off up the dirt road.
Meanwhile back at the DUAEL major draw . Breathes are held. The name is drawn . Oh No (Oh Yes) “ Nick”.
The crowd calls “Nick”, no show . A friend phones Nick , no reply . Then the call “there they go” – and everyone watches Nick and his good campadre drive away from a pair of ROCK SHOX SID forks.
The crowd calls ‘draw again” and the curtain falls.
You know the moral of this story!
