Who is this small child holding a very fancy looking bike outside Psyclewerx?
He is not just any small child, he is the bike shop's sponsored downhiller, Laurie Greenland, age 12. Recently taking part in the mini-DH races in the Forest of Dean, where he came he is 12 years old and he came 7th in his first race in the 12 - 14 years category
It may look too big from the front, but the back end is sized right for a kid, and the travel at both ends is fairly serious.
We don't know what the sponsorship deal covers, but it does apparently include free servicing. Given that the kid could do a wheelie -and none of us at Bristol Traffic can- we don't expect to get any such sponsorship any time soon. Which is a shame, as those brakes look like they'd be good in the wet.
