Haven’t been to Afan for a year or so, all the trails there are rideable in a hardtail so nothing should be beyond you’re ability.
I’d recommend parking at the Glyncorrwg centre and riding Whites Level and Skyline
Not staying over, just driving across for the day tomorrow. Got a good number of weekends free in the new year if it's any good?
Sure, just let me know when you're free.
If you're going to ride Afan I'd suggest Blade if you have a full sus. The final two descents are long, fast, but rough as dogs. Loads of big boulders, loose rocks, gravel and ruts. Riding the final two descents on a hardtail would be very hard work.
On a hardtail then maybe White's Level.
Let me know when you’re heading to Wales in the NY, if I’m not working I’ll come riding.
The blade final section is a blast. I always enjoyed the final section of the wall too. Have fun.
Well, gotta have a bloody job to pay for all this shit don't ya? ;)
That's why I'm not allowed an MTB :(
@t_w @furious_tiles sounds good, will suggest a couple of date after the hols.
Cool, I’m never adverse to a day at Bike Park Wales either
Is this a good deal? I just want to get out and blat around some local trails, nothing special. But haven't ridden an MTB since my ~2003 Scott hardtail
Giant trance has always been a good platform. Price depends on age and condition really and I can't see an age on it.
It’s fairly old as it’s a 26”, the modern ones have more linkage.
Yeah, it looks good. Won't be the lightest, but shouldn't be a boat anchor either.
If I wanted that I’d offer £300 for it tops.
That's exactly what I did, but it was declined. Might let it stew a few days and try again.
@Dogs pretty sure it's a 2012
69.5 degree head angle?!?!?! positively unrideable by today's standards .
Got the new bike muddy, was fun.
Has the cat finished yet?
Hi, I'm thinking of getting my first full suspension bike and saw this https://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/mountain-bikes/carrera-titan-mens-full-suspension-mountain-bike-s-m-l-frames-green-grey
Is it a good first bike or a waste of money?
Looks a bit crap, if you've only got that much to spend, I'd stick to a hardtail and look for something with a better fork. Or spend a bit more and get a bossnut from go outdoors.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
