    What goes around comes around... you screw your sponsors and you will eventually get screwed! Hence he screwed many trials companies... that is why he rides a Trek!

    No. It's a pure and at least the front wheel of the mod.I resisted the temtation to epoxy 2 pounds of birdshot in his seat tube.

    It's amusing to see what others think of him too. I felt bad for almost half a second a few years ago for calling him a fucking douche, when he failed to pause from his cell phone conversation or even make eye contact with the presenter of an award he had just won.

    It was also well documented (by the marvels of digital photography) that he left quite a bit of litter in the parking area of a rider maintained competition site.

    He's too important for any of us, that's for sure.

    :rolleyes:


    He's east coast, I catch a bad rap out here as well (and on the internet- oh no!) - its just a different mentality back east. His attitude is normal, I have it too- just because he isn't your standard panty waste engineer nerd trials rider doesn't mean he deserves misfortune. His mod bike was shipped out of colorado cyclist, where afrobot works. He is doing demos in minn with his stock bike, so I'm assuming he couldn't sign for it back at home.

    Posting a topic making fun of a hard working trials rider because their bike didn't get delivered is possibly the dumbest thing I've seen this month.

    He was literally home for two days after CO then drove to the midwest to do demos. It is his mod bike that was shipped, which he rarely rides other than competitions anyways.

    But really, get over the cell phone thing. He received a call right before he was called up and he was trying to tell them he had to go, and not just be completely rude to the person and hang up... maybe its me but that seems perfectly decent excuse to me.


    ...and by the way, from a business point of view, afrobot, you giving out such information from work is very unprofessional.

    :slap:

    Andrew I totally agree with you, with the exception of a few people, everyone I have ever met from the east coast seems like a dick to me. But I'm sure you think the same of us westerners.

    That wasn't the same cell phone incident. But whatever. There might be some truth to this East Coast thing. I've lived in the east for my whole life and I'm positive that people think I'm a dick.

    ok someone said something about mike screwing over companies and now he gets what he deserves, so hes riding for trek. well, if its the same deal i was offered, its a REAL deal, one that pays very well for demos, Eurovan, and other deals from the team sponsors. so, its not a "bad"deal.

    i am from the east coast, both NYC and balmore city, and i am a dick. i tihnk most of the colorado guys from croatia can attest to that. but, i am a respectful dick. steidley portrays very little respect. most of us down here in baltimore dont really care for him. but, i cant speak for everyone. but whatever, its not like ive had the chance to sit down and have a beer with him, sooo.

    colorado is full of nice friendly hippies.

    andrew, $400 fine now if you honk in NYC.
