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.

Newton tonight

Anyone else up for a pootle to Newton this evening?

I'm still feeling the effects of 4 hrs at Thetford on Sunday so a gentle pootle would be good!

Re: Newton tonight

Yep, I plan on riding before the big freeze sets in later this week

Re: Newton tonight

If my lights finish charging in time, yes!

Schwalbe procore kit. Just read read very brief review of this idea. Basically a 22mm tub. Inside a normal tubeless mountain bike tyre. Idea seems to be no pinch flats better traction and cushioning. I think the downside must be gross tractive inefficiency and extra weight. ( to a lesser extent) . Hope the Broadside is in optimum condition.

Hmmm... a bit over the top for anything but the rockiest trails I suspect.
Tribute was the tipple of choice, and very quaffable!
