Took the impact so I didn’t have to. Posted 6 years ago The Swedish ChefMember Every single race entry Posted 6 years ago senor jSubscriber my p7 – but technically it wasn’t my money – so i’ll have to say ciclo montana holidays. Posted 6 years ago _tom_Member 2 months in Whistler. Hopefully going back for a bit again next year. If I have to pick a bit of gear then probably 661 Kyle Straits, they’ve saved my knees from getting messed up quite a few times. Posted 6 years ago crackheadMember sorry,but a rigid singlepeed! Posted 6 years ago steve_b77Member My GT Avalanche 2.0 that I bought nearly 5 years ago, it got me into the world of Mountain biking 😀 Posted 6 years ago chutney13Member apart from an actual bike, probably flat pedals. Posted 6 years ago thepuristSubscriber Apart from a bike, a day with Jedi. Posted 6 years ago seftonSubscriber going clipless, bar ends and recently a remote dropper seatpost if I had to choose one though it would be the pedels Posted 6 years ago TurnerGuyMember Possibly my satmap Posted 6 years ago fourbangerMember Z1’s Posted 6 years ago WackoAKMember Magicshine light.

Posted 6 years ago thomthumbMember uk bike skills winter boots. can’t decide. sorry tony 😉 Posted 6 years ago nedrapierSubscriber my bike! Dekferf Generation, bought in 1999, most bits replaced, but frame still going and still puts a grin on my face. Posted 6 years ago joolsburgerMember Of everything you’ve ever spent money on MTB wise what was your absolute best purchase? Mine is trips to the Alps worth every penny – what’s yours? Posted 6 years ago trailofdestructionMember Woolie Boolie socks. Pretty essential in a Lake District winter. Posted 6 years ago SteelsrealSubscriber a bike that fitted properly…priceless Posted 6 years ago frankiMember Probably SPDs. I can do without gears & suspension, but clipless pedals transformed my riding and I’d never be without them. Posted 6 years ago darrenmMember Twentyfour12 solo entry. It was the perfect excuse to get a lot of riding in. Posted 6 years ago derekridesMember Steelsreal – Member a bike that fitted properly…priceless +1 finally admitting a small was better and getting an uppy downy seat post as well. and Lights so I have more time in winter to ride. Posted 6 years ago curlie467Member My lights, without them i would hardly ever touch the bike! Posted 6 years ago D0NKSubscriber Yeah think I’m going to have to say SPDs (with winter boots) Mud-Xs are a close second at the moment. Posted 6 years ago derekridesMember No it has to be lights, since the thread says ‘single’ thing, it’s a the one bit I wouldn’t be without now. Posted 6 years ago derekridesMember D0NK! Just been to recheck, sure enough there you are right up there on the STW uncool list.. Posted 6 years ago barnMember Tubeless tyres. Posted 6 years ago BoardinBobSubscriber Portable pressure washer Clean bike = less faff and problems = better riding experience Posted 6 years ago jamesoSubscriber Some cheap rigid steel forks and the following return to simplicity. They reminded me what riding was like when I started and I’m having more fun than I did before. More recently, some proper wide rims – P35s. ~18psi in an Ardent 2.4 29er front tyre on that rim is a very different ride to a normal 19mm inner width rim and the 30+ psi you need to stop it rolling. Posted 6 years ago D0NKSubscriber sure enough there you are right up there on the STW my uncool list.. idly wonders what I’ve done to make it onto your list. Was it a mudguard comment? Posted 6 years ago derekridesMember D0NK – Member sure enough there you are right up there on the STW my uncool list.. idly wonders what I’ve done to make it onto your list. Was it a mudguard comment? You made it from day one by buying stuff to ride from Aldi 😉 It’s quite a long list Er just re-read what you wrote, sounds like Darwin might come into play, SPD’s in winter boots for night riding? And I missed that Franki, not to worry he’s on it now.. Posted 6 years ago portlyoneSubscriber Proper weight spring in my forks! OTB fear had stunted my riding. Posted 6 years ago benmanMember OL24 White Peak OS Map. Found so many cheeky trails thanks to this… Posted 6 years ago D0NKSubscriber Ah yes derekslist…can someone remind me of the killfile info? Darwin might come into play, SPD’s in winter boots for night riding? I never mentioned nightriding. Posted 6 years ago JunkyardMember Darwin might come into play, SPD’s in winter boots for night riding? Darwin night rides madness Posted 6 years ago D0NKSubscriber bet his lights were rubbish and battery life non-existant. How did you not end up on the list anyway? you own more aldi stuff than me!
