I'm Karen from Bristol, I've recently gotten back into riding and 5 weeks ago I picked up my new Whyte 805, replacing my 10 year old Spesh Rockhopper, so things like disc brakes are a novelty to me.
I'm loving the Whyte, it's so fast downhill! It just need a few tweeks to make it perfect for me, i.e a ladies saddle and a longer stem, riding it at the moment makes my shoulders ache and my bum sore
Myself, my partner and a friend have just booked a chalet in Morzine for a week in August, so I'm looking forward to hitting the single track over there.
Here's my bike, it's not the best pic as it was taken with my iPhone.
