They say all good things have to come to an end! And that is certainly regretfully the case here. For two years, riding for Junglerider and particularly the honour of being asked to ride for the company by one of my riding heroes, Martti Kuoppa is something I won’t forget in a hurry.
Over the last two years I have been testing my signature “E-frame” with plans for it to go into production, but there sadly hasn’t been enough interest in the frame. We needed to take minimum of 100 orders, nowadays I realise that flatland is a saturated market and that is a tough order to make.
Now I have got to the situation where I have cracked my first prototype which lasted 2 years, there are no more frames to ride, so rather than have no bike at all. It’s time to go get a new bike!
I just want to take this opportunity to thank Martti and Simon at Junglerider, for all they have done for me, and the very fact Martti believed in me in the first place. Going back and forth with Martti producing countless progression clips/edits in 2011, is something that will remain with me forever.
In keeping with the Junglerider/Flatmatters philosophy, hope you enjoy the farewell clip! More to come…
