    Ribble MTB from the 90s?

    Hi all and happy new year, I was in a local charity shop today dropping some stuff off and had a look at the bikes whilst I was there. One caught my eye which was a Ribble MTB. It was chrome all over and had a Deore LX groupset. It looked pretty old, probably as old as my Marin Pine Mountain...

    MTB or Road Bike

    Hi. I've been enjoying the old Mtb of late. Its heavy cumbersome and slow compared to my road bike, but saying that it does have alot of positives. Even though i ride alot slower i can still cover decent mileages in comfort. In fact i would say its more comfortable than the road bike. With the...

    Lock on MTB Handlebar Grips and Over Thumb Thingies

    My grips on my hard tail swivel about and can give me blisters. I am after lock on recommendations with a budget of £20.00. Not the Ergon palm grips which I have on my cargo bike as I want dynamic control and movement of my hand. I need something suitable for long days in the saddle so...

    MTB suggestions please.

    I have road bikes but find it hard to find the motivation to get on them during the wetter, colder months. So I'm thinking of purchasing a MTB and doing some off road riding this winter. For some reason being wet and cold on a road doesn't appeal to me but being wet, cold and muddy in a field...

    Recommend me a gravel bike to replace my MTB

    I have a fleet of bikes, road, tourer, folders and an excellent lightweight MTB from 2003 (a Cannondale F1000SL from 2003). The MTB has had virtually zero use in the past several years (like literally twice) and the headset has now packed up and due to being a HeadShok parts are not available...

    My first visit to MTB Heaven !

    I've known about this mtb region for many years but never really had an urge to go visit it. So today was half day Friday and since it is not far from where I work I figured why not go see why all the local mtb riders flock here. I spent 3 1/4 hours just exploring a bunch of fun challenging (for...

    What Colour ? - MTB colour Change !

    My old Diamond Back Ascent started life out as a Marble Grey Colour in the early 90's. Became very unfashionable so I had the bike re-painted a darkish blue colour that's been on the bike 15 plus years. It still looks pretty good, but I fancy giving it a spruce up. There is nothing wrong...

    Which MTB to Buy?

    I am at a point where N+1 is around the corner. However I can't make up my mind if I go full sus or hard tail. At 6'4 I fancy a 29er, relatively slack and a sensible price (sub £1500) My current bike is a 2004 Stumpy so very old geo and only 100mm of travel, but with lock out. At my price point...

    I have a Trek 6300 with 11-34 cassette on rear and a 44/32/22 triple chainwheel.I have Schwalbe Kojaks on the rims but I find that I am spinning too much when on the road. How can I go about making it more suitable for roaduse incurring too much expenditure? Any solutions would be welcome.

    Can't decide between these for first MTB

    I can't decide which would be the better buy. One is a hard tail the other full suss. 1) Vitus Sentier VR 29 (hardtail) - from Wiggle / CRC 2) Calibre Tripple B (Full suss) - from Go Outdoors If money were no object I'd go for a much more expensive full suspension bike, both either of these...

    Beat the scrap-men: Raleigh Ascender MTB

    Having had recent purchases go wrong on me - an Orbit 531c which was rusted and seized, plus a carbon wheel which has turned out to have a broken rim - I was suffering a confidence crisis in buying used items. So, en route to Manchester velodrome I passed two bikes with other items, did a quick...

    Rigid mtb, alloy, or as light as possible

    Evenin' all! As my shoulder is as fragile as an egg lately and for the forseeable future, my alu Scott roadie is going to be history fairly soon. My other bike is the venerable Trek 800 Sport, currently in 8-speed 11-34 guise. The CB Uracco mtb is to be rebuilt as an 8-speed for my younger son...
