One of the best things I have watched for ages. His earlier video is also worth a gander.

Incredible skills.

You saying road stuff just can't cope with a bit of rough riding? Should get a hybrid... ;-)

Ah but epic fail at the end really cleaning a bike with wd40 and a carbon one - shocking

That is awesome.

Very Good. He'd not get very far on my commute riding like that though. Not wearing them shorts.

My first thought when I saw the cleaning with WD40 was "I take it WD40 have put money into it" as there is a product shot at the start of the video as well.

Excellent, the thought of some of the drops made me feel dizzy though, I am a big jessie. Probably just as well Rick is on holiday as he'd make comments about the bike being strong because it's heavy.
I think I'd let those two clean my bike with just about anything.

Everyone knows baby wipes are then only approved way to clean a carbon bike
