The patience of a bicycle shop proprietor is pushed to the limit by a man who does not take no for an answer.

Mike Murphy dons a red wig and glasses for hidden camera piece at a bicycle shop in Harold's Cross in Dublin. He attempts to buy a bicycle that has been left in for repair and is not for sale.

Bicycle shop owner Paddy Walsh, known locally as The Cycle King does not want Mike Murphy's custom. However, the would-be cyclist is determined to take the bike for a test cycle.

We’re not selling it. It’s not for sale.

Before the situation gets too heated, Mike Murphy reveals his true identity.
