Sounds good matey,noticed the other week new 'no entry' signs in Broughton woods and even a few fences,haven't been in there for about 2 years so was a bit suprised I thought this was public land and used to be the most legal stuff we rode,any ideas what happened?

I ride around here on either a 32x17 or 34x18(which actually measure the same gear really),if you're a bit of a gear masher 36x18 will probably be ok but we do have a few hills that I stuggle with but have got up in a 32x16,thought me knees were gonna pop out though :oops:
For referance I got round the red route at Dalby last Saturday on 32x17 without any problems in 2.5 hrs(2hrs5mins being my best in summer on full sus with gears and dry trails),so I'd always er on the lower gear side,just learn to spin at 120rpm+ :D
By the way whatever did happen to chewedpencil? I thought this was his ride :?
