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.

BAR-ton

Right, after a new set of forks, a big faff with lots of interesting old-new technology mating issues, several weeks of bike-in-shop, a few calls to Turner in LA and about a reduction of £600 in the Evanson family fortune, we're now good to go.

I thought i'd ween myself in quietly with a trip to (almost) my local boozer this evening. Who's up for it ?

Re: BAR-ton

I am planning on riding

Re: BAR-ton

I am thinking about riding tonight. Had pizza hut buffet for lunch, so I might be a bit slow!

Re: BAR-ton

Weather looks nice so yep, count me in

Re: BAR-ton

possibly... Been out today and it was tip top.
Only issue is I'm out early on Friday A.M. doing my two day motorcycle tour of all the run down Eastern coastal towns (and Scunni) between Boston & Scarborough.
Hadn't realised Turner still made bikes!
