• 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 swains on beach cruisers.

  • You're wrong, Nhatt... Just look at this thread as the village stocks where locals can congregate to throw rotten fruit and vegetables at their idiot law-breaking neighbours...

  • It's turning into a delicious soup... You forgot the unctuous hambush...

  • I'm making a lamb stew right now fact fans.

  • Shouldn't you be at work?

  • I'm waiting for an email... le sigh

  • Working from home.

    Had Thames Water investigating the sewers at home.

    Pet name for your bathroom?

  • Pet name for his bowels....

  • Anyone have a clue who the 5th floor even are? I know some fgl people (but that's really only the ones that have been around since pre-trick days, tbh), but I haven't got a clue who the others are except that maybe it started from a trick group that was on here?

  • This whole situation just seems so totally out of control.

    Me no likey!
    An old fashion shun?

    Or the naughty step...

    Rudy, Davy, Johnny Fitz, few others I think...

  • I would personally be very interested to hear why anyone from the 5th floor thought the bike sale doup was any kind of a good idea, even if they weren't going to punch him.

  • Pet name for your bathroom?

    That's the pain cave

    Pet name for his bowels....

    That's destroyer of worlds.

    WIle he may be an annoying troll on the interwebz, I have met loic in real life and hes a nice guy. There is no way what happened should have resulted in violence

    I think it's a sort of continuation of the Trixie Dix days. When the venue was no longer available, another form of organisation became necessary.

    I'm sure he's a nice guy, and I'm even sure so are the others. Even nice guys can sometimes do stupid (and wrong) things, too. The key for the community is to ensure that no-one gets a chance to tip the balance between the nice and the nasty things they do too far in the nasty direction. People can apologise and make up and be friends again. It doesn't always happen, sadly.

  • Totally. Hopefully this can all get sorted.

    Im not saying I believe either side more or whatever, but that pic of Loic looks like he got of pretty light if it was 5 guys on 1

  • Maybe, but that isn't really the point, is it?

    Someone talks shit on the internet.

    Group of people who are having shit talked about them get upset and decide to confront dude about it, but instead of just asking to have a chat or sending an email and keeping it internet based, they dupe him into meeting up under the pretense that he was going to sell someone his bike.
    Regardless of who the violence, he's going to be out-numbered for what should have been simply a conversation, there was NO WAY that was going to go well.

    I recently had something come up in my personal life, and a friend invited me over to talk about our problems. When I arrived there were her and two of her flatmates that wanted to talk about our problem, and that was completely un-productive, I got defensive and upset and no good came of it. It would be the same in any situation.

  • Did you D lock them?

  • substitute bikes with pokemon cards and this all sounds like i'm 12 again...

  • So what Loic claimed 5th floors Mew card was a fake?

  • Shit, I thought Loic was just this mild mannered French gentle giant who's into classic French and English period bikes, wears a cape and smokes a pipe. But obviously he has another life.

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

    Lol!

    I don't think we're going to hear the endo this.
