Re: chain lubes. You should try the Finish line Krytech wax based chain lube. It works really well, makes the chain real smooth and quiet and sheds mud and grime like shite of a shovel / water off a duck's back etc. The best thing is in UK winter conditions when you've sprayed all the mud and crap of your bike with the hose in the back garden - the chain doesn't lose all it's lube and rust up in 12 hours.

Like you, I use the Sedis chain with the slots - on XTR /XT shimano on a Proflex 856. The chain doesn't need the special pin to rejoin if it breaks on the trail, it's light and and stays relatively rust free.

If your'e going to use the Krytech wax lube, you must completely degrease and clean the chain first. Spend some time building up the Krytech on the chain for a few dark winter evenings before your first winter ride. If it's cold in the garage / shed / work shop stick the bottle in boiling water first to make it easier to apply and get better link penetration.

last advantage is that it's very clean - no more black cahin marks on your clothing, black hands when working on the bike etc.

Good luck - good site - keep up the good work

Best regards,

mark

if you really want to be hot this winter, then get yourself a decent road bike.....find out what those muscles in your legs were really made for!! not just twiddling a 22 tooth chain ring up some muddy hill, try a 53 tooth up a 1 in 5 climb in deepest darkest cornwall this winter. i promise it will put muscles on yer muscles...then come early season races you will be on the middle ring , out of the saddle & honking up those hills no problem...take a tip from someone who knows....although i dont race so much any more!!!!

What is hot? Hot is trail riding, the type that makes your life hell going up, down and around and especially over!!! The trails in Whistler/Squamish and Vancouver are the best for more reasons than this 1. the scenary 2.difficulty/technical nature 3.variety

Why are mountain bikes banned from quite a few walkways/bridle paths. I have been told the reason is erosion of the path from our wheels. Have you seen the state of the bridle paths after horsey people have trampled them beyond all recognition.Ride fast aim for puddles. L8R :-)

The Peak District= Lots of good rides around HOPE Head out of hope then left after the cafe up the roman road across to ladybower. You should come along one saturday with the J E James Cycling group. Scotland Argyll= I recently lived in this area and found some of the best mountain biking in britain. The best route is called the loch orr circuit. It starts at a small village called Auchandrain between Inverary and Furnace and basically does a circuit which goes accross to loch Orr and back PERFECT!!!!! I know an American racer who comes over from Moab every year to train he say's its the best mountain biking he's ever seen. The terrain is rough. Also In LAke District Black Sail Pass is a popular route. If you want a giuded tour of the peak distict E-mail me and we will arange something. James Brown

MTB'd in a lot of countries: Spain, France, Turkey, Jordan, USA (Winter Park!), Costa Rica, Italy, Morocco, Portugal. Been to Morocco 5 times now, going back in about 2 or 3 weeks time. It is MTB heaven (No traffic, beautiful Moutains, very different culture, and thousands of miles of virtually unexplored MTB'ing)........

Interesting Site Nick, well done

whats hot: the Karrimor Trail at Coed y Brenin(its very brilliant and very knackering!). Riding down Snowdon is very good too, unless your brother falls off and is unable to ride so you have to get down to the car then run half way back up and ride down on your brother's bike in the dark which is what i had to do!!! whats not: Panaracer Duster tyres coz i got about 3 punctures per ride.

I agree that mythos xc tyres are good for 3 seasons of the year, Have you tried carpet tile adhesive to stick your grips in place. It holds v. firm and is easiy removed using hair spray. The new Marzocchi forks are even better than the old ones super smooth and with more progression so there is no need to raise the oil height, still a bit on the heavy side.Goretex cables are only really needed on the back so one set can be stretched to do two bikes, or the cost can be shared with a freind

Hi your site is quite hot, im glad you liked Winter Park and Moab, this is my neck of the woods as well as Liverpool. Have you heard about our megga deal for a whole summer riding in the Rockies and Moab. Its 2200 for four star luxury accommodation from any time in June til anytime in September. Right in the middle of Breckenridge weve got over 1000 miles of terrian right from our doorstep and excellent guides who'll show you around. This would be anyones adventure of a lifetime. You can read all the details of our chalets,staff etc at our web site but you wont find much on the whole summer deal because its quite exclusive. We can only accept 12 places and we've only got 2 left. Cheers all Nick Rocky Mountain Adventures

If anyone wants to know anything about it just e-mail me. Cables in the review section, try XTR cables if anyone hasn't found any they are 100% happy with, i think they're the nuts.

Makt lube in a dripper bottle is a concentrated version of the well loved Makt spray ( used to be called Gozon).This is really good chain lube.Low tack,high cling and smooth.P.s.I highly recommend going to Nanr yr Arian Visitor Centre (Forestry Commision) 12 miles east of Aberystwyth Mid Wales.Ask nicely at the desk for photocopy routes.The big one is an epic, and the food in the Red Kite cafe one mile away is ace

Darc multi lense glasses are really cool, they are cheap - great if you tend to breack them often and the Yellow lense is brillant at changing this years dull summer into a bright one. The only problem is the surreal effect they have if you take them off in a dark forest. It seemed as if the bike and myself had shrunk and riding just got alot harder! either that or the effects of dehydration had cut in!

Any one who, like me, loves to jump, dual slalom, xc should know about this place... it's called PORC (Penshurst Off Road Centre) and it's in Penshurst, In Kent. It costs a couple of quid for the day, and it's well worth it. the dual course is awesome, 10 foot burms, massive doubles and tabletops. Theres an old quarry to practice jumping, and loads of other courses. give it a try

Women on bikes in lycra....first off! On the bike side of things Michelin tyres kicks ass, even the really cheap ones. They hug the ground like no ones business, you can really zip round the corners. Archrival brakes, although slightly over priced are go for stopping.

Have you tried the Helvellyn ridge route starting from Ullswater up over Matterdale common and then along the ridge. Finally coming down the old miners track to Glenriding. I would seriously recommended it. Takes about 4 hours.
