DISCLAIMER. MOUNTAIN BIKING CAN BE DANGEROUS. YOU JOIN US AT YOUR OWN RISK.

SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

One last thread, bikes for sale

Hi all,

In my previous post I forgot to mention that we will have two 2012 Mongoose Maurice single speeds/fixies for sale, preferably in the first week of January, but possibly even next week if someone needs them sooner. We think that about £120 for each should be on the money.

Mine, a medium, has been ridden regularly for commuting but had a new drivetrain (chain, chainring and freewheel) at the end of October. Few changes from stock except a charge spoon saddle, lock-on grips and Schwalbe Durano plus tyres with a good bit of wear left in them (and one of the original thickslicks for a spare). My partner's, a small, has been very lightly ridden, as she studies in London, and is really in near-new condition. Only things changed on that are the grips I believe.

Cheers,
Jason

PS: I can let you know that theives will steal other bikes first even though they are quite nice and were over £400 RRP, as all our mountain bikes were stoled from next to them in Comberton ;) We were broken into again recently, but nothing more taken due to new security measures, but keep your eyes open in Comberton!

Hi Jason,

Are the rear hubs on the maurice 120mm? If so I would be interested as a donor bike for my grass-track racer.

Hi,

Hubs are 120mm flip-flop. Also forgot to mention that the medium has surly forks rather than the stock mongoose ones.

Cheers,
Jason
