Re: Good full susp bike for son

You will get a lot of bike for £500 if you know what you are buying, I am NOT a biker, I did a lot of research and question asking before having a £2.8k build, but I would never have bought on my own, I assume you know bikes unlike me

Perhaps not everyone wants to ride the same bike or we would all look like muppets with torn jeans and back to front baseball caps :) :) :)

Re: Demo rides for top end trailbikes

???


The moment I decided to spend over £3k I decided to build a custom bike, surely when you buy a pre built you are still buying what you are "told" to buy, I wanted what I wanted not what suppliers said I should have ???

Re: Chainring spacers, too expensive

I have learned a LOT and I mean a LOT since joining this forum, the help from other members is superb, being NUTZ.......... sorry for the pun, Aspergers, Autistic, I rarely use shops because I hate being amongst crowds, so I shop online.

Chainring spacers, too expensive

£10 for 8 is a joke Yes I know we spend £000's on a bike but I hate waste I needed to replace a chainring protector on my bike, yes I like them just to finish off the bikes look, but needed spacers. Ended up simply drilling out the centre of four nuts, 100% the right size https://lh3.googleuserconte...
