    • Great rides today!


      Whitegate and weaver sunrise are my fav pics, what time were they taken? Great shots.


      Also mono bike is a ridiculously nice pic, DOF, sun haze, etc

      Very first pic of field is good too


      Can't believe the size of the bars, reckon i'd be catching a lot of stuff until I got used to the width, look like some epic steering controllers though, whats your opinion versus old? all positive?

        Well done chaps

        Just back and coffee refuelled - quick shower with report and pics to follow

        In thinking of a tyre/sus pump now damn you !

        It would mean you could drop the digi pressure gauge too, makes all kind of sense.

              Yep some awesome rides and great to see so many out getting some durty wide action

              Weave was around 7.45 and Whitegate about 20-30 mins later

              LOVE the 800mm bars just need to be mindful of them a lot more - almost came off riding over a lock bridge about 5 mins in this morning - luckily there was no one there to see me make a **** of myself

                          • Some awesome rides recently on here, everyone's starting 2016 well

                            Gutted I never started Strava at the start of yesterdays ride, the first climb out of the carpark up to pikes teeth is horrible and I feel it should be on record! It's on my previous Hamsterley ride for your viewing pleasure.

                            I've bought my years pass for parking at Hamsterley, obviously not intending for it to be the only place I ride but @40 for a year or 4 per visit I reckon it's a worthwhile investment. It's a good place to go when the natural trails are soggy (which lets be honest, is usually). I have to say, I think it's improving my riding anyway, good for fitness (dem climbs!!1!) and some decent skill tests. Early start avoids the rat race too

                            On to the upgrades.....

                            The 1x10 upgrade.....tbh this one I could take or leave, the extra gear helped on the climbs though although shifting doesn't appear much better than my antique XT mech.

                            The forks.....ooof....still need to spend some time riding these to get them set up right, felt alien at first......150mm on a hardtail gives some serious geo changes, took a while to get used to it. The big difference though is having more steerer available which has allowed me to get the bars a little higher (bar drop was ridiculous before). Bike feels better, more purposeful, and far more comfortable. Maxle is nice too, far easier than qr imo although i can't honestly say I noticed and extra stiffness, too busy feeling the PLUSH of the coils.

                            So strava....lots of PR's yesterday when I swear I was riding worse than last time. A lot are probably due to having a better idea where we were going tbh. Just felt I had to confess that
