Hi all

Hi, im new to the site.

Was into biking about 2/3 years ago, but not done much since i went to uni. However, ive just bought a second hand GT agressor XCR 18" frame with hydraulic discs, gel racing seat, DMR v12mags with titanium axles.

Got it for £250 which i dont think is bad, it looks in really good nick. Am i thinking right?

Only thing is now to get on it and get back into it, really looking forward to going in Wharncliffe woods again (really close to where i live) Sheffield.

If you think it was worth the money, then it was worth it. Get out there and enjoy yourself. Welcome, too.

Welcome back to MTB :)

Bike sounds nice, so get out and ride!

Do you have a friend to share the fun with? Its always good to have a riding buddy to keep you interested.

Hi

Been out today already, think i over did it a bit though, 5miles, half of it uphill :lol:

Yes wharncliffe does rule, changed a bit since i last went down some of the trails, mostly the inclusion of some BIG jumps! Well big to me!

No im afraid i dont have a riding buddy, but my girlfriends cousin is that way inclined (biking) so im sure hell come with me sometimes.

Wanting to do a saturday ride somewhere in the peak district, not far from where i live if possible to last around 3/4 hours..............anyone got any links to any routes? Nothing too challenging, but i just want to get out and have a go!

Im not so lucky either, live on whitley lane near whitley hall, 15/20min ride uphill and i mean uphill before i get to the good stuff!

I like wharncliffe but it aint that big, no sooner have you rode through, it ends, do you find that?

Im after some longer rides! :?
