Re: Sub 1k hardtail

Considering selling my medium el mariachi frameset with a rockshox 100mm fork if something more XC floats your boat I'm going to ask a stupid question... what makes that bike mote XC? I assume that means cross country? Sorry I'm not familiar with the terminology really so not sure if I'd want more ...

something from Cube would be my choice. i am trying to sell my Fatbike, and this is gonna be my purchase.

The Blackburn Outpost standard front roll bag is very long and thin. I'll measure mine when I get home.

Sub 1k hardtail

Are there any bargains around for hardtails up to £1k? Something appropriate for bikepacking of course.

WRT kid friendly route

Hi all. I'm considering bringing my son on the WRT but he's only ten. So was wondering if anyone has a short route from BB towers that would be suitable for a ten year old, who's a relatively competent rider, but not the strongest legs? Campsites are fine, but wild camping is good too. Cafe and pub ...

Anyone know of a bottle cage with the bolt holes right at the bottom, so the cage essentially mounts very high up?

Re: Bargain Alert Thread

I find them true to size, but went up a half size for winter boots. Same here. I've got two pairs of the Trailcross XT boots, one for summer in my normal size and one for winter in half a size bigger to allow for extra socks. Works well. Same. Trailcross XT standard for summer and the Goretex versi...
