When I purchased the shoes I forgot to size up one size from my normal shoes. I used these shoes on one dry road ride and because of the light indentations on the sole from the spd cleats , I couldn't return them to the retail seller. I'm using the same shoes in size EU45 now and they are...
Many won't like this, but from a ride I did today with 4 other 'poor fekkers' on analogue MTB's, was that trail centres are getting over run by electric two wheel go carts !
Today's 10 miles took us quite a while, about 2.5 hours with our legs only. We kept catching a bunch of e-MTB riders...
I’m after a mountain bike frame for 26” wheels with discs for my son. He’s out grown his Giant Trance advanced so I’m looking for a medium 18” frame to build into a new bike for him (he’s 5’8”) I will consider a hard tail or full suspension. I only need the frame. I will also consider both...
Hi can anyone recommend a pair of warm or fleecy long Mtb trousers please ….I think these will dramatically lengthen my riding season !
it’s difficult to gauge how good they are by looking online so thought I’d cast my net here….no specific budget in mind!
Declaration: I know nothing about mountain bikes!
My aged Whyte 905 MTB needs a bit of drivetrain TLC - rings, cassette and chain all need replacing.
Current setup is Sram X9 10 speed shifters and mechs, 39/26 x 11-34. X9 cranks (will accept a direct mount single ring)
I’m considering going...
I have a Jamis Dakar A2 full sus mtb, which I am not using as much as I should be. One of these, but a little bit muddier
I am looking for around £700, it's a size L. Collection only I am afraid, but I can easily get to Bristol/Exeter/Somerset if you need to meet somewhere.
This is more retro than vintage, but anyway…
I bought this Saracen Dirt Trax second hand in the late 90s - it was my first ‘proper’ MTB and was used as such. It eventually got usurped by a newer bike and was relegated to the back of the shed. A few years ago a friend had his bike stolen - it...
I've started commuting on my hybrid MTB and really it needs a set of mudguards.
I can possibly get a normal one on the back but whats my options with the front?. The forks don't have any mountings.
Any ideas welcome!.
2001 Rocky Mountain Elevation in stunning condition.
This bike was dry stored for almost all of its' life.
I have replaced the following with brand new :
The tyres with Schwalbe Billy Bonkers (26 x 2.1). (only done 20 miles).
New Schwalbe long valve inner tubes.
Brand new Ashima...
Just wondering if anyone knows where I can get replacement cover caps?
Only ever use bottles with cover caps,however I am now the proud owner of four perfectly useable bottles with broken caps.
Emailed Elite about 10 days ago & have heard nothing back.
Don't want to bin them,as that's just wasteful.
A mate has a GT LTS 4000 and is wondering what’s it’s worth. I have no idea, so thought I’d ask on here! I’m thinking 1998-ish? It has RockShock front forks and Shimano STX 8 speed rear derailleur. Condition is used with a few scuffs. All works apparently and is complete.
Any ideas on...
My sister bought a bike for her lad for £30. It is quite decent. However, the front fork is seized solid. No amount of force by yours truely could budge it. So does anyone happen to have an old pair of forks, or some off a scrapper they can salvage before chucking it? They are 1" steerer...
Hi everyone. I have recently got back into riding. I currently have an old rigid mountain bike with 15 gears and 26 inch tyres. I have been increasing my distance and I do realize that being a bit overweight and starting from scratch I will be a bit slow. When I am out on my rides I see a lot of...
Selling for my daughter. Size is XS - described when we bought it as a "small ladies bike", would fit someone up to about 5'4". 26" wheels, Aluxx frame, Suntour forks, Shimano 21 speed. Good bike, though cover on left hand shifter is missing - doesn't affect gear change. £45 or near offer...
UK Size 11 Northwave Raptor GTX SPD Winter MTB Boots

So I put mtb pedals on my road bike last year, first time with clipped in. Like them and did this as wanted to be able to walk easier when not riding. However this year I have noticed the outside of my right foot will ache at around 10-15 miles. Nothing too bad but enough for slight discomfort...
These were on the mixte when I got it, powering the Weinmann 730 calipers. As far as I can research, these were designed for cantis, but they do work well with calipers generally, just not the rather poor Weinmanns.
Not spotless, cosmetically, but otherwise OK.
Am hoping to do a little favour for a non-bike-savvy friend who has discovered that plastic brake levers don't exactly inspire confidence. He rides a Raleigh MTB of similar type and age to my 1998 Raleigh Max. I do have a pair of Chang Stars, but they're for side pull calipers of a decidedly...
