Z Supreme Being (7/7)



  1. Such terrible terrible news. Saw it on Facebook this morning and only managed to get on the forum now. For all the old timers that know me, you know I'm not an emotional person (Amanda fequently questions if I have any) and I well up every time I read something about this such sad news on Facebook or the forum. Amanda was shocked to hear the news too. I think I'm not stretching any truth in any way saying he was a legend in his own lifetime. RIP bud
  2. Make sure you check tyre pressures too, mine were down a bit and it made 1-2MPH difference Road bikes are good for foul weather and commuting, MTBs are for real biking, you cant beat it
  3. All works fine on Chrome, just downloading FF to take a look. Maybe we should mandate the use of Chrome EDIT: OK maybe I wont bother - looks like pilot error IE is a right pain in the butt, usually you can enable "Compatibility Mode" it sorts out most gremlins from what I remember. If not - get Chrome!
  4. Being talked about by the team, will get it sorted depending on the majority vote
  5. Very nice sir, I always liked the look of the Fuji's. Most of Berks/Hants is under water atm, so I only managed a quick 20 mile road ride today to keep the base miles somewhere north of zero!
  6. Much prefer a towbar mounted rack if the car can take it, far tidier and doesn't effect fuel consumption half as much. Also only takes one lever and connecting the light socket and its fitted, far quicker than a roof rack Saris looks ideal for the Zed
  7. Sure someone on here had a BIrd bike rack fitted, might even be in this thread somewhere. Seemed to work ok. I had one way back that attached to the towing eye, but I was never sold by it, was a good design but just not solid enough for me. As for fitness, go out for a ride with Mr AK and you'll always feel unfit! Unfortunately in the summer I'm riding with him and his even fitter mate, so I'm screwed no matter how much training I do!!!
  8. Very good sir. I'd heard on the reviews of the Process 111 that it feels like it should have more travel, which is ironic as they seemingly designed it as it is to prove you dont need more! Maybe you need to give the 134 'tweener a go? Even I would say the 153 is probably overkill for the UK. How did it feel on a 29er? How did you find the X0 trail brakes and Pikes?
  9. Just do it with the frame and 1x10, or do they not do it with X01? Its meant to be a fair bit cheaper then XX1 on OEM. Does look like a nice ripper for those taller riders out there
  10. In fact I've got some X9s you can have at mates rates
  11. X0 trail my boy, you should have had a go on mine
  12. Did he click the confirmation link in the registration email? Forum is saying he hasn't made any posts and is Validating which usually means they haven't done the confirmation email. I've manually set as validated so should be able to post now
  13. As AK said, the black downs arent really blacks at all, you can easily roll 98% of it at 2MPH. The bits you cant, you can stop before you go over them, so no commitment required at all. The black bits are definitely black for their ups rather than downs, after 2 days of riding my legs were nicely warmed up and this killed them! Even AK had to put some effort in which is saying something! A novice can easily roll nearly all of it, just scope if out before you got hitting it at any speed. Lips are all pretty mellow, so even if you do over-egg it then theres no real harm going to be done.
  14. Someone's looking for a Llandegla is much improved according to our man AK, it certainly was good enough for me. Really enjoyed B-Line, nice jumpy line but they aren't massive jumps, just nice size to clear at a good trail speed.
