    Quietly legendary John Mellor AKA Goomba271 sent me some shots of himself riding a Neumatic taken a while ago now. He has kindly given permission for them to be shared.

    general all round fine fella.

    Having met John out in Big Sur for the Swaylocks w/e back in 05 I can testify to the above. a fine fella indeed. my only regret on that trip was that I was due to hook up with him out beyond Morro Bay for some matting, but did'nt.
