Been hanging around for a while so I thought that I would be polite and say hello and introduce myself.
Many I know call me MAX and I hang out 60Km West of London, often in Swinley Forest and ususally after dark.
This is one of my best mates we do a lot of stuff together and the riding which is 35% on road and 65% off road does keep me fit.
My bike is a project, built it myself and it is a constant learning curve. My aim was to keep it under 40ibs, which I have, but if I remove the fancy lights and the fanicer batteries, then the weight drops to around 32ibs.. but at 200ibs (with kit), what is a pound or two!
Riding it is fun, sweet on the road and very controlled when doing light Freeride/Downhill stuff.. I am at the beginning of my MTB Education and at 50, learning how not to get hurt is important.
Hello to you all.
