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.

Canyon bikes

Whilst the idea of a 'new era' hat is tempting I am thinking of replacing the Kona and am drawn to the idea of a Canyon 'Grand Canyon' of some description.

I think I have seen one out and about with the group. Who has one? Are you happy with it? If you're not happy with it maybe I'll go for the hat option after all.

Jon m has a canyon I think.

Re: Canyon bikes

Yes I got one last March, very pleased with it. The only draw back, is you can't test ride them. Tony if you wish to try my bike, then let me know.
