whys it no good for yours? what sorta stuffs there? i can only vaguely remember the place
Posted: May 15, 2012 at 17:19
because im running a DH geared setup, 9spd close ratio cassette, not ideal for uphill climbs,
just been looking at lee quarry bacup, look like its the place to go.

yeah looks good there, my main bike is the voltage dh rig, its like a baby elephant so i hate the uphills too.
we should meet up the 3 of us and tear up lee quarry at some point, what you both like for work schedules?

well, i just completed my first year uni so i dont go back til september, i work friday and saturday nights (9pm onwards) but i can book days off) il have a hardtail in about 3 weeks, going for a hardcore hardtail with a 150-160 mm front fork so i hope it can handle lee quarry, been a while since i rode but im up for anything haha

im a 9 till 6er but have a regular rotation of sunday/tuesday then tuesday/thursday off so im good once my back sorts itself...i was hoping to go sat/sun but im achin like hell.
yeah a mean hard tail will hack lee quarry..if you guys are going hardtail then i might but im pretty sure thats what gave me this backpain in the first place haha
Posted: May 16, 2012 at 5:18
haha! probably is mate! i always but my tyres at 40 psi and loosen the back a bit but HT do bounce around! all part of the fun tho, hardtails are slower on the rough stuff, but i find them more fun

anyone got facebook? add me, john shankly stansfield, also lee quarry recntly opened alot of new trails etc, Giant bikes helped em out, they have a route that goes to another quarry, and a new pump track if that turns you on, so it should be good there!

Sam you ever been on the lil grass mountain cleverleys golf club near the park on the front, you can get air if u want a cheap thrill haha, or ride to the estuary park
