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.

PIVOT bikes has new UK distributor - Upgrade Bikes

Just incase any of you lot are asking Santa for a new bike, I test rode a PIVOT Mach5 a year or so ago in Aus, and loved it. Problem was, the UK distributor at the time was next to useless.
So, I was happy to see that Upgrade Bikes has been appointed as the UK distributor for PIVOT bikes as of Aug-2010 ...
