Went out to Kirkhill today for a wee blast... full of the cold so suffered a bit Laughing

Set some times for you geeks Razz

    Toppy Tower south climb (Tower South Climb Sprint) - 1m17s
    Tower Descent - 1m00s with a trip into the heather at the end avoiding a dog Laughing (1m07s with front shocks locked :/ )
    FAst Run Down - 57s - This is the fast section that starts near the climb to the tower, and ends at all those steep roots downhill sections where McBride went over the handlebars Razz
    Fun Park - 1m30 Its my fitness thats limiting here. I'm burst by the time I get 2/3rd of the way down. Some good jumps if you keep the speed up.


This section is good (Mini McMoab) - I bailed out on the massive rock (3ft drop) but think I'll be fine jumping off it next time, now that I know its there!

I cant make it this weekend, but may have a run out tomorrow if the weather is OK.

Anyone needing a 28mm quickrelease seatpost clamp?

sorry been out the loop for a while, born again (moutnain bikers) is becomign all the rage, good to see you pulled through!
Found you on strava.. subs maniac is me, you are missing quite a few good trails out, I cant do this sunday mothers day duties but can fire up one weekend and meet you for a quick blast.

have a look on strava for;

fast forwarder, if you come down past the trig point heading west there is turning to the right, head up there immediate left, and ride up for about 5-10 minutes. its a belter.

tight as a badgers: this is on the south side of the trig towe, entrance not obvious of the main fire road but as the bname suggests its tight through pine and birch trees different to the rest of the hill but fun.

if you have time head up to gellivet or one of the trail centres for a day its a hoot.

If you have ardents, they are a pretty descent tyre. but agree your pressure is WAY to high. 30-40psi for someone of your mass. can run lower pressures in kirkhill where there is less risk of a pinch flat, but in the rocky trails run a little higher 35-40psi. if you go tubeless you can pull this right down to 25psi and gain more traction, but being heavy i find that doesnt work well for me.

your smooth descent times arent bad, i am not the fittest either but have a 1:13 for the fun park Smile i can be the rabbit (fat rabbit)

What trails are you gravitating towards, steep, rooty, lumpy, smooth, jumpy?

Some bike pictures to get you in the mood!

current main bike - Devinci Dixon


Should be finished the fat bike by the weekend so will post that for a laugh... oh and the frame is made of bamboo Smile


Some historics!



erk thats old...

no
