Savernake Forest in Wiltshire for me yesterday. Was loads of fun until my V12s bit 6 parallel chunks out of my leg...  Cry

i have scars from V12s too. looks like i stepped in a man trap  Doh!




I've still got a dent in my left shin from slipping a pedal aged 15. There's no feeling quite like it.

I'm back West next weekend (the 26th/27th), riding FoD on Saturday and (hopefully) Triscombe on the Sunday. Time to give my new Demo a good thrashing  Tomato Slayer!

A few of my steed-riding friends and I will be checking out the Warehouse on Saturday. Managed to score a Specialized Epic frame off ebay for cheap at the weekend.  Slayer

Anyone got any nice bits for sale so I can build the bugger to the standard it deserves?

How do you win this stuff? Just be there on the night, party, have fun, dance like an idiot and you’ll get stuff thrown at you! Expect stupid games, random give aways and some hidden goodies around the club!

Hopefully they won't be throwing the frames around!

(my back wheel is all manner of bad  Cry)

I've got a rear wheel you can use until you get something sorted. Nothing special (Alex DP17), but it is round & true so inifinitely better than your current one. Takes centre lock discs, which I can also provide if you need. I'd need it back if I manage to pringle mine.

If I'm not in on sunday, Jen should be so you could grab the wheel and the hose at the same time?

Verderers trail at FoD has a lovely final descent; fast, & flowing. Blue graded though, so there's nothing particularly technical about it and TBH the rest of the trail is a little dull after the first lap. There's a red section you can do first which is a bit more interesting rooty/muddy/slippy singletrack & adds an extra couple of miles. I usually do the red, then the blue, then take the steep shortcut back to do the final descent again; works out at about 14 miles iirc.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/_YXYDgtw0PU&amp;feature=g-upl&amp;context=G260bd2aAUAAAAAAABAA" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/_YXYDgtw0PU&amp;feature=g-upl&amp;context=G260bd2aAUAAAAAAABAA</a>

Otherwise it's Cwm Carn or Afan. Afan is about to loose all the trees that haven't been culled yet due to japanese larch disease, so last chance to ride it in the forest for 10 years!

Indeed, incredible ride... my orange didn't like 120s

TBH the sweet spot is supposed to be 130-150 so Sectors will be best for the Slackline, but even with the 120s its great Two Thumbs

I haven't bought any new components for my jump bike in years and am thinking of doing it up. Anyone up to speed with what's good these days?

The main things that need replacing are the chainset, the wheelset. At the moment it has 24/7 three-piece cranks with a Shimano cassette but I want to run single speed. It appears that 24/7 might not even exist anymore...As for wheels it has Mavic D521s on XT hubs.

Any suggestions as to what might make suitable replacements? Could probably spend around £3-400 in total.

Also, if anyone knows where I can send Bomber forks to be serviced that would be helpful!

For the last 4 years I've been trying to build my confidence on trails etc and am now pretty comfortable unless it involves ridiculous air! Especially after breaking my ribs taking a tumble after xmas. I got my bike serviced at Psyclewerx just before xmas and it cost me the best part of £100. Full service, new ceramic pads, rear cog set, chain etc. I thought this was expensive at the time but it needed some tlc after a hard autumn...remember the mild weather! I'm now fit enough rib wise to get back out and the last 2 times I have been really pissed off - everytime I put any weight down whilst in a middle gear (centre chain ring) the chain slips and I nearly lose my teeth. I've tried tinkering with the cable tension but no joy. Do you think I may need to replace the middle chain ring too?

It's a Specialized Rockhopper Pro Disc '08:

(same one but not pic of my actual bike - it's covered in sludge from the weekend)

P.S. Anyone know when the red route opens at Leigh Woods?   Bad Teeth

The blue route is fun in a 'blaze is as fast as possible way.'  The red stuff just tags a few more technical bits on to it.  It's mostly the same.

As I think I said before, I'm in Briz over 'Jubilee Week' - doing Cwmcarn on Tues and FoD on Weds, but afraid the car is full for those two. We may well head back to FoD on the Friday though for some more upliftification, you game?

Edit: Will be back in my Clio for Friday which only holds two so the car issue still applies, but rope some other sucker into driving you! Same applies for Tues and/or Weds if you can make it.  Slayer

Hi guys,

I'm new on here but ride around Bristol a lot. I'm into downhill and freeride, not especially fast but I hit some of the bigger lines.

Normally ride around Failand, Rowberrow, Cwm Carn but I did live in Whistler for a year 3 years ago  Grin

However.... was leaving the carpark at Rowberrow on my Norco Shore earlier today when I heard a massive bang, my Saint rear mech had completely sheared off and got sucked into my rear wheel - gutted.

So... when I get it fixed, anyone up for a ride? None of my mates ride bikes and I'm not really feeling Ashton Court trails.

Whistler crew! I lived there for two summers (when this thread was started in fact), 'twas a gay old time.

I don't live in Briz these days but am back for a visit shortly, see my schedule about three posts further up. If you've got a car and fancy some uplifting then come and join us!

Failand trails are also called Belmont or Ashton Hill Woods.

They're not the longest or the biggest, but a good little local spot. Some doubles and a couple of road gaps down there too.

Could do with some advice.

I have a Giant ATX 860 from way back which has been sat in our back garden rusting up a little. I'm planning on tidying it up a on pay day starting with new brakes, a new chain and some road tyres. Can anyone recommend a decent shop in / around town or am I headed to Evans? I've always had better experiences in the indy shops back in Brighton, would like to keep that going here.

Depends on where you are in the city.  Zero G (formerly Garlands) on North St (Bedmo, Southville) is my local and they're always good. 

There's a really good little bike shop called Chaos, in the corner of the indoor section of St Nick's Market.  The guys that works there are very friendly and helpful and their prices are pretty good as well.

Bike (just off the Clifton Triangle) will price match (with proof and as long as they don't make a loss) against the big internet sites, as do Evans.

Nice, I think I've seen that Chaos place on passing through St Nicks. I'll pop back for a proper chat I reckons. Good to know about Zero G as well, Southville is on the list of places we might be moving to in the Autumn.

Cheers!

I get on well with those two shops; the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, which always helps, so I get most of my smaller bits from them.  Zero G also did a good job value job on servicing my very hard ridden forks.
