Struggling after one weight session, managed a quick wattbike yesterday morning, may try and ride a real bike later, maybe.

Still hungry

Have a good day everyone

    just the local hill, shame I just cleaned the crudder too.

    got a test on a whyte 130 lined up (entry one not the RS)
    and deciding between https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/tools/bike ... bike2=3790 for value/worth the extra should they be available in the time frame that is similar to the Whyte (june essentially)

    V68, i accept, though posting from holiday does seem to be poor practice.

    A mate of mine has a Whyte 130 (not sure which model - it's the orange one) so if you want some real life feedback I can put you in touch.

    He does claim he was working over there and not just stalking CB's sister. Besides, I can't resist a cheap shot.

    Yes indeed. Itinerant yoofs of today need some guidance. A wet weekend in Wales with a Welsh landlady* should do it.

    Thurstaston/Caldy TLW, so not much more than that mole mound.

    If he likes it and it does all the trail centre stuff that will do, I've not had enough rides on different muddy machines to give a verdict on what is better etc

    Yep he likes it. Mainly does Bedgebury in Kent as he lives there, but reckons it is good for heavier duty - is planning on giving it a shot on the red runs at BPW.
