- getting back on the mtb and loving it.
bought myself a mtb at the weekend, a proper one with springy forks. I had been doing a odd bit of offroad for the last couple of years on a surly ecr. ok but lacking something.
so I bought a new bike, and it has relit my excitement for mtbing. it is ace.
1 x 12 is ace (shimano). air forks are ace. blasting round leeds bike park before and after work is double ace.
got a weekend 100 mile offroad ride planned for November, with essell g and tea2 off here.
cant bloody wait. cant remember the last time I was so excited about a planned ride.
bikes and moreso, mtb’s are ace.Posted 3 months ago

I am the same, after a good few years of due to
1st child, sleepless nights etcLaziness.
Got myself a very bouncy yeti SB6 and am fully back into the addiction, was even out last weekend in the slippy slidy stuff, fell off several times but still giggled the whole way round Ballo Woods.

That switch infinity location on a Yeti scares me – right in all the crap!
Looks like you had fun – the only bad bit of riding at this time of year is cleaning up afterwards – the actual rides can be hilarious 😝

Pardon????? You never mentioned 100!
Anyway, for some strange reason I’ve been grinning like a Cheshire Cat while out on the bike lately.

Looking forward to it Tony. (I think)Posted 3 months agopocketrocketMember
Just brought myself a second hand switchback as a carrot to get myself back out on the bike.Posted 3 months ago
Forgot how much I enjoyed it and as all my bikes are 21 gear, 26” wheel ally, the feel of Steel and 10 speed came as a very pleasant surprise.
Must resist all the upgrades I’ve suddenly decided it needs!😆
