    Never been to Aston, do you ideally need a DH bike?

    No, you dont “need” one.

    Nope, but it’s not much fun on a short travel xc bike. The trails are pretty steep so a slack angle definitley helps.
    I ride it on a ragley blue pig with 150mm rev’s and it’s fine if a little bumpy (lots of roots)

    ideally – yes
    to get the most of the trails there – yes

    is a DH bike essential?
    no, not at all

    A big thank you to the trail builders! The new start ramp is great, as is the new rock garden and berm on the Black run. The new drop on Surface to Air is a huge improvement too! If you haven’t been in a while get down there!

    Ok cheers for the info, ive got a 140/120mm Genesis Grapil so should be fine, if a little wild!

    Grapil will be fine, just put some good tyres on. I’ve ridden there on everything from hardtails to full on DH bikes, they are all fun, but different.

    Indeed – I have not been for over two years, I have missed out!

    AM bike or Hard core hardtail will be fine.
