You’ve fantasised about your better half being into bikes as much as you are. Don’t deny it. Riding together. Wrenching together. Cruising the classifieds together. For most of us, it’s nothing more than a loopy, ‘I’ve had three glasses from the top shelf’ dream. But for Boxer Metals’ Bec and Chris, it’s an everyday reality…
