- Scott Marathon Series – Bike Choice?
The ones that I have done have a mixture of tarmaced roads, farm track type surfacing, grassy tracks, footpaths,forest fire roads, etc, nothing technical at all. The climbing is more difficult than the downhills.
Although I havent done the one your doing.
For something like the DyfiEnduro I’d recommend a short full suss though,Posted 6 months agowonny jSubscriber
If i’m going well i might just about give the top 20% of finishers some trouble if i’m going well. Lots of climbing, great views, not overly technical anywhere apart from the odd little tiny bit if you’re lucky.
Fast rolling tyres would be my main concern. As said people do these rides on all sorts of bikes.
My bike is in the shop but they’ve lent me a big bouncy Trek Fuel EX8 which is a bit of a stealth weapon and will have to be suffered on the climbs. 70k for me.Posted 3 months ago
Well that was brutal. My wet weather gear was saturated even before I got to the start and the rain didn’t relent for the first half of the ride.
Probably the hardest 100km I’ve ridden. But a great course and some superb descents made it all worth while. And an hour or so of sun at the finish!Posted 3 months ago
