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.

Latex MTB Tubes - £9.50 each

Dear All
I've bought a batch of Michelin latex MTB tubes (Presta valve) from a local shop. They're nominally 26", but fit happily in 29ers. No mess. No fuss. No wrong size in your back pack. No noticeable difference in rolling resistance vs tubeless. Great puncture resistance. Great comfort.

If you'd like some, please let me know via this post. I think I have 8 left if Pauls L and S take their quota.

£9.50 each (SRP £15.99)

Cheers

MT

Re: Latex MTB Tubes - £9.50 each - UPDATE

Thanks to those who've got back to me.
I won't be around on Tuesday this week (possibly Thursday), so if you want to collect from my house, let me know, or if you can wait til I see you next, that's also fine.

If you need to contact me: O7899 965536

Cheers

Hi Mark.

Yep 4 for me please. If you let me know where you live I can pick them up as I think 4 would be too much for you / I to carry on a Tue or thurs.
