First mountain bike purchased, a cube pro reaction hardtail with HS33's
, only cost me about 800 euro max as we have a bike to work scheme where you pay no tax on it woo hoo!
Know the image has the dics but the rest is the same. I gotta say its a lot more fun to ride that the road bike, took a ride around some easy enough stuff as I had my son with me.
So any good resources in regards to riding skills out there? not a total idiot as have been racing road bikes for a few years, but this brings news skills and dangers...also as he is only 10 and going to be riding with me a lot do you have any advice as to protective gear for him? just going to be trails riding for now no mad downhill stuff yet...
