  • Bump...

  • Can anyone post links/explanation/recap as to what has actually happened here?

    It would be a long tale.

    Something along the lines of: Loic was in 5th Floor, Loic and 5th Floor somehow go separate ways, war of words commences online with 5th mostly ignoring and Loic mostly going bananas, in the real world 5th shun Loic (or at least Loic thinks he's been shunned)... Loic starts trolling anti-5th Floor stuff on various blogs and on LFGSS. Fast forward a chunk of time: Loic gets banned from here, other bogs also tire of the trolling, 5th aren't sure who the troll is but strongly suspect Loic. All the dots are joined together and Loic is named and shamed as the troll. Unfortunately Loic's naming and shaming comes a couple of hours after some guys (allegedly involved in 5th Floor) have duped Loic (by pretending to buy a bike he's selling) to Arnold Circus whereby he's confronted. Loic's ride is D-locked and Loic is then apparently outnumbered and jumped, with some punches thrown and kicks being included. Loic reports it to the police, 5th Floor admit on LFGSS a confrontation occur but play down the scope... no-one on here or elsewhere really knows what has happened and when considering whether to listen to a troll or a group who appear to be active in the community people listen to the group. More rumours go around, it's just not going away... and the info about there being a police investigation come out as well as actual details about where the ambush happened and who might have been involved.

    So we've gone from an original falling-out into a near constant path of escalation that so far has resulted in one guy allegedly being ambushed and physically assaulted. Hopefully people will now realise the line has been over-stepped by a big fucking distance... No-one involved seems innocent, all were dicks, but the physical violence is a league beyond the trolling.

    What the 5th Floor sponsors think of all of this I have no idea.


    The use of the word Bamboozled is the only good thing that will come from this thread.

    Should have stayed closed.

  • Does this mean we can go and lock some 5th floor bikes and ambush them?

    2 wrongs = 1 right.

  • Hambush?

  • this thread needs more 'behind the bikesheds, after school. NO KARATE!'

  • RPM - repped

    i didn't realise these london possies actually did organised crime on fixehs. im starting to think i shouldn't have been so rude about bomb squad fixie team or whatever they were called!

  • Did anyone take pictures?

  • First beef, now ham... This thread's gettin' tastier by the minute...

  • We should set up regular fixed fights!
    Or all have one big spoon sesh down on the courts and let the love free!!

  • Unfortunately, the people we want to talk about this on here won't be able to.

  • I'm pleased about that.

  • Are they in gaol?

  • No, they don't play football.

  • Talking of football. Anyone got a 5-a-side team they need a player for?

  • Velocio, thanks for trying to keep this at least a bit on track.

    This is a big deal, it's gone from someone being a bit of a dick to something incredibly shit.

    This is not an acceptable way to deal with "beef", at least not outside Japanese teen pop music videos.

    I think it's pretty important to be vocal on this.

    the rest of you, get your own thread.

  • No, they don't play football.

    They should play bike polo, then they could vent their beefs on court... Actually, I think hambushes are legal as long as everyone keeps one foot on the floor...
    goes to check bike polo rules

  • Talking of football. Anyone got a 5-a-side team they need a player for?


  • This whole thing is ludicrous, while Im not condoning Loic's behaviour at the end of the day all he was doing was trolling. For someone to take this so personally that they turn to violence is beyond comprehension.

  • This, I presume, is an inevitable consequence of people forming Ali-G style "crews", appropriating wholesale an American gang culture that has nothing to do with their actual reality, and claiming to be anything other than mates dicking around on bikes.

    They should all be rounded up and made to do the tweed run on vintage Pashleys.

  • thick middle class white boys in faux ghetto-esque behaviour shocker!

    /grow up and get proper jobs you cretinous, negligable twits

  • no good will come of this, it will only end in gears

  • Wednesdays?

    Yep. My 11 a-side training is Wednesdays but that ends in 3 weeks.
