By the looks of it, we are going to be few, unless there has been some undercover purchasing going on.

As you can see, Kt has picked her bike up, and according to the phone call her mum took before tea "it weighs a f'kin ton", so, same as the rest of us then.

Jon's initial enthusiasm for the idea has waned with a resurgence of road riding interest (1000k during April :shock: ), so he won't be along.



good lad jon, let,s leave the old and slow ( neil, yes you are both ) to play in the woods

21lbs! Are you SURE?

That's pretty light, I thought 31 or maybe 41 :wink:


SUCH a Dad joke. GROAN... I don't have the facility to weigh it other than using Argos scales which cost £3 so they will probably say it weighs somewhere between 15 and 96lbs depending on the day.

BTW, your Hahanna that you rode the Verderers on weighed around 30lbs.


Yep, my second time on a mountain bike in a year and a half! The Iron Maiden was clearly good training, although bad for self-esteem as you mongrels on your bikes made of air rode off into the distance.

Help!!!
just stripped the thread on this bolt and presently have no back brakes :facepalm:

Could get enough pressure on to stop the pads moving on braking so tightened it up a bit more and...bugger.

What do i do now?

Can a set of v brakes drop straight on? appreciate will have to change lever also if this is the only solutionl
