Still waiting fur this bairn...... Anyhoo back to bikey, had a look at the new XT brakes that arrived yesterday :D This is the last bit for the Scandal.

Also I've just bought myself a new pair of Endura Singletracks and a pair of Shimano shoes. Go to Evans and when you spend over £40 and enter :JAN20 you get £20 off!! I did it twice as well!


Good shout K!

Just saved myself £40. :D

Looks like Evans are only honouring the £20 off for the first order. Still a good deal, wish I'd jumped on something last night.

Did a little bit more work on the Pugsley today, its been built up singlespeed then stripped back down getting ready to go geared :D Its been a good year or two since I was geared on the dirt, but I thought I would try it........at least once :wink:
Its been sitting for a while and just waiting on shifters so thought I'd make a start, just cant decide on which bars :? I like both but think the H bars are a bit more versatile and I love them on my 1X1.
Anyway, just thought I'd share.
Hope your all enjoying the new year.

Go with gears Jamie. No point having a bike that you can ride anywhere then ending up pushing it. Don't underestimate how sapping sand is even with fat tyres. Soft snow will be the same.

To be fair to Jamie without gears does less pushing than me.
