Ride what you want ? Retro or modern. I don't know what to ride at the moment?

Ill come along. I train there a lot and my old team mate Steve lives there and knows it like the back of his hand so Ill ask him to come along as well.

I will be riding modern just because the terrain is so hard on the bikes. I only way 10st and have broken a few spokes there. Also, anyone who still uses tubes :shock: make sure you take plenty with you.

Hi slinky

Be good to see you there. I have been told its harsh, so I will take the modern stumpy fsr. There is three of us coming from torbay and will probably camp for the night.

Anymore coming?



Cheers kirbdug

i'll be on a 36lb jump bike with 9 gears, tyres pumped up rock hard and forks set so they dont budge... just like last time and i got round fine. i'll be waiting at the bottom while the full-suss boys r playing with their shocks :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

btw i've ridden most of these trails fine on fully rigid several times, no probs i like pain thats why i fall off so much :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks jonnyboy

I would have liked to have gone to I.o.w but my youngest lad has a final in football. Will have to come next time as I've never been, have a good ride.

Cheers kirbdug
