Obviously he's having a blast without Jezza hovering over and badgering him for being so slow and accurate. The bike doesn't even appear to be for himself but a nephew or child of a friend.

They need James' audio instructions on a disc instead of the booklet.

Totally agree with James about riding on the pavement and yielding to pedestrians In American Suburbia, footpaths are usually enmity and roads are big and fast so cyclists use the footpaths.

You know how you, Richard, and Jeremy feel about a G-wiz and the owners that accompany them? Like, because you care about cars, and a G-wiz is a terrible car- you then harshly judge the owner? That’s how anyone who cares about bikes feels about this video. 😬

A motorbike is a drug, and you get used to the acceleration buzz. End up needing it so often just to feel normal. A cycle is another matter, connects with nature, exercise, simplicity. They never grow old, and mountain biking is pretty involving, you learn lots of skills, satisfying, can push the bike to its limit, unlike a fast motorbike most of the time you are having to hold back or risk your life. On an MTB you can proper razz it. And not worry if you fall off too much or put scratches on it.

Thought he was building one from a bare frame! Maybe building the wheels himself too. And I see him open up a box with a bike almost built for him! I dunno. "Assembling" would have been more accurate. Lazy sod ;) May is May - he is weird but we love him for it ;)

6:04 they should. they’re on the road and if they’re using a bike for work, they should have insurance and pay road tax. if a cyclist smacks a car and it’s the cyclist’s fault, the driver of the car can’t do anything for a claim

you shouldn't handle disc brakes without gloves as the oils from your hands will affect the braking

Probably the most ill-informed question a man can ask 'why do people wear clothing like they're in the TdF etc?'. It probably also indicates a village bumpkin desire to bully anyone different from them. In cycling the clothing works as part of the efficiency of the bike is the answer for all the low-brains out there.

James made the cardinal sin of touching the brake rotor with his bare fingers. This transfers oil onto the rotor and reduces brake performance, and also causes squealing.
