I've just gone for a set of Maxxis Advantage, more of a freeride tyre, wanted the grip of Highrollers but with less rolling resistance. So far they've been awesome everywhere, can't fault 'em. Smile

Coed Y Brenin is a great place to ride although there are much better trails closer to home. I do quite a lot of riding, if you fancy going for a blast some time feel free to give me a shout Very Happy

This is my current ride, a 2009 Cannondale Rush Carbon...

I've been inspired by this thread to actually get off my arse and get on the bike !

Need to get some fitness back so I strapped 14kg to the back (My Daughter + Seat) and get on the roads. Do a bit every evening now and I'll be ready to take on the trails in no time !!!!

Here's the trusty steed -

mountin biking  01082010256

Its a Haro X2, not a big name in Mtb but it had cracking reviews when I bought it back in 2005 and I had a decent deal at the time. Changed a few bits - Hayes HFX9 Carbons, V8's, X-lite saddle, Ti skewers etc.

Would love a new bike but the golfs swallowing the little spare cash I have at the moment Rolling Eyes

Nice, loving the bikes guys. That carbon Rush is pretty special. It's good to see that theres a strong mtb following on here. Smile

hehe bike whoring time Smile This is my steed, it's an Iron Horse 6 Point. Descends like a dream but is an absolute nightmare on the ups. Also have a Marin hardtail but it's in desperate need of some parts to get her going.
