The girls at the end didn't ruin the video, but it certainly took it down from "best bike vid I've seen" to "I guess bike tricks are for teenage boys with an internet connection and no hope of settling down with a real woman soon". It's pretty infantile tbh. They could have gotten the WD40 into the shot a dozen more intelligent ways that didn't make me roll my eyes like this :roll:

Do you appreciate the irony here?

Next time some supposedly uber PC person goes on a anti-sexism rant, by your own advice you'd be well advised to rewind your Benny Hill VHS tapes and enjoy them instead of responding to their comments.

Anyway, its always good to hear a plurality of views in my opinion.[/quote]


Not an 'Uber PC Person" in fact far from it, just sick and tired of sexism crap that goes from Television to politics. Like I said if you don't like it switch it off and play Uno or something. If the girls were naked or wearing string bikin's and covered in baby oil and carrying on in pornstar fashion then the sexism thing would be more pertinent. Anyway enjoy the clip for the awesome trials skills and cut the last bit out if you don't like it, me I'll watch it all for the sake of it.

So just let me get this straight.........the primary use for WD40 is for cleaning bikes..........right?
Or does that only apply to Pinarello's? :lol: :lol:

yeah, fair enough. I don't mind naked girls wearing string bikinis covered in baby oil to be honest, its just about context. People can do whatever they want This video just brought out my puritanical side cos it just seemed incongruous after such amazing riding. And like I may have intimated, it made me feel a little uncomfortable about forwarding it onto female riders I know who would have gagged.

Just for the record. I used to watch benny hill sitting on my mother's lap when I was about 8. I loved it. Poor troubled man (benny hill, that is).

Just rewatched it...

He paid a Brit tenner for a couple of squirts of WD and a bit of a wipe down of the frame :shock:

I know who won that particular encounter...
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.
