When I was studying engineering at Loughborough over 40 yrs ago I had a friend from Cwmbran which is near you. Sorry I cant help, but you should ask this question on the Mountain bikes section. 10 stone = 140 lb as nobody in N America knows what a stone is.

Hello Callum, your best bet is to head over to the Mountain Bike forum and look at the stickies. Then slowly start asking questions. I suspect that most of your questions have been answered already. Oh, and I've got relatives in Clyderwen...
