I had pretty much the exact opposite experience with Windwave - sent my Marzocchi forks back off my 2nd hand Ransom after I snapped the TST2 cartridge on my 2nd proper ride on the bike. Was fully expecting to have to pay, but forks turned up at home a few weeks later all sorted with nothing to pay -...

I've got the 2007 version. Great starter bike IMO, and has done me fine. The fork is a weak point though - I was never all that impressed with it and it was knackered after 4 or 5 months, but I just picked up a cheap set of RS Tora's and they have been great.

go for medium - I'm 6' 2" and have a large Tyax Super, and I could probably have just got away with a medium.

I have a vested interest, but check out MTB North East, we are fairly new (a few weeks old) but the membership is growing steadily and there is plenty of local knowledge about routes all across the north east.

Try MTB North East - everyone there rides those trails so should be able to help. I've personally only ridden Hamsterley from your list and I found it disapointing - far too much fire road and not enough singletrack / technical trail. Also what technical trail is available is not that well maintaine...

Hi Tracey, this still unrecovered? If so I'll add it to the stolen list on my site. It's a long shot but as it's north east specific someone may have seen / been offered it.

Not tried them myself but the ayup lights get great reviews elsewhere - you'll get a bar and helmet light for under £250 and they've just released a new version for 08 which solves the only real criticism I've seen of them (lack of on/off switch).

I'm thinking of getting a set myself.

GT Avalanche 2.0 and Mongoose Tyax Elite - £400: two very similar bikes set the budget standard. Proven frames, damped forks with lockout, good quality shimano drivetrain and amazingly hydraulic discs Should that be the Tyax Super rather than the Elite? Great work getting this back up by the way - ...
