I now pronounce you man and bike

All riders can relate to the protectiveness and pride felt towards your bike. It may not be the prettiest or have the best spec but it's yours and you've made it how you want it. Sometimes – usually after a mechanical – you'll hate it and wish you had a different one, but think back to all those good times, all those memories shared. Take a leaf from Tomás Irarrázaval, but maybe don't take your bike love this far!
