Hi all,

New to MTB, (bit of a roadie) but fancied getting a bit muddy now and then had relatively good fitness as was up to 180 miles a week on the road, bit of a football injury has set me back though, torn ligaments in left ankle.

Got a Cube Ltd team 2011 (blue/white) off ebay last week and went to pick her up, we had very differing opinions on "clean" lol, so once home gave it a full valet and good oiling, new pedals (SPD) and some crudcatchers, ready to roll now, going to do a few commutes to get settled in and tweek the setup, and soon as the ankles 100% going to hit the woods & wolds in the lincolnshire area :D
