  • 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.

Carbon fibre repairs.

So I have been talking about this for a few weeks now.
I have done quite a bit of resurch and listened to recommendations.

I found this blog

And it told me everything I needed to know.

I have been recommended HQ Fiber Products by Rutland Cycles in Histon, and this is in fact Scott bikes go to place for repairs in the UK.

01603 713972

I have information on two others but during my resurch both had comments about bikes being in for repair for over a year and still not returned.

HQ told me about 2 weeks and I think he said £126 for new B.B. inserts and return post.

I will be sending in for repair in the next couple of weeks and will update you on how it goes.

Forgot to mention, HQ is just outside Norwich, so not a long drive if you don’t trust the postal services with your pride and joy.
