    I was thinking this last night. For the life of me, I do not know of anyone who is younger than me and uses a camera whilst cycling. If I am wrong, can someone please tell me because someone about my age and having a camera would be uploading things to YouTube and I haven come across anyone with a higher pitched voice than me.

    If I am the youngest, then I am quite proud of that. Even though my age can seem to be a boundary which some drivers dont mind crossing.

    I would think you're wrong. And I think you're thinking about it for the wrong reasons - ego.

    I would simply think of it as how many years of cycling you've got to come and how much to learn. That's a much nicer place to be.

    I thought maidstoneonbike was 15? CommuterCallum is also very young.

    If it's high pitched voices you're after, check out Magnatom. Certainly not as young as you though!

    Really? I mean, really?

    So you know what; 0.00001% of the demographic? You assume that as you like to upload to youtube everybody in this generic age bracket automatically will also?

    And I've seen you play the age card quite a few times now. Don't take this as a personal attack - I don't know you, and we've never met - but age and maturity are quite different things. I suspect here lies the 'boundry which drivers dont mind crossing'...

    I think Maidstone is a bit older but I dont know about CC.

    If either of my kids get into serious cycling when they're in their teens, then I'll be tempted to buy them cameras, for solo rides at least. Two reasons: 1) It'd help them to improve their road skills and 2) It'd provide evidence of any incidents that may take place.

    Quick question for you Matt: Do your parents / guardians view your videos?

    I dont understand why it would matter if you were or not the youngest person using a camera, probs got alot to do with most people just like to get out and ride without feeling the need to record it everytime they do so :laugh:

    They only view the ones on my Youtube account (which tend to be the worst that I have). Therefore I dont put minor things up anymore and I am very careful of what I put up so that I dont get a necking from them.

    Good answer young man lol
  15. So you're not the youngest, but I'd wager you are the unluckiest in terms of your 'incidents', is that any consolation?
