Hope Retainer Ring - Review
I Run a Race face nw and zee combo at moment but will likely change for Hope when next upgrade drive. They do work superbly in all conditions but personally I find its good to change your chain frequently, I do mine after 3 months that's probably about 500 miles for me combo of enduro and bike park type riding. I find beyond that its prone to chain drop and problems. Also it might be unrelated but my zee clutch is much more reliable on this set up. When I had a chain guide I wentvthrogh zee clutch fails after 3 months or so.

The Brechfa Club
Have stayed with Jay and Nikki not long after they opened for business, it was fantastic then and I can see they've done loads since. They certainly put everything into it.

Pinkbike Product Picks
Okay I'm intrigued. I had a tack in my tyre last week and pulled it out. The stans fluid in the tyre was fresh replacement out of a new bottle only 2 weeks earlier ( i shake the bottle for about 2 mins) but it wouldn't seal up. Fluid spraying out everywhere and looked really thin. Air temperature was I guess around 2 degrees at time or less which made me wonder if that was a possible factor. It sealed temporarily but as soon as I began to inflate tyre it opened up again and sprayed through what was quite a tiny hole where tack punctured. Been looking out for alternate product since, I get the concept of the baby powder because of this experience. Are they talking just like Johnsons talc powder here?

Complete bike. Good bike with good level of components for serious use. Frame was professionally powder coated at Argos Bristol and bike has only done about 50 miles of riding since that time. Fox Talas adjustable 110 - 130 mm forks (serviced 2 years ago at MOJO and bike not used since forks serviced) Maxxis High roller tyres Saint rear derailleur Deore shifter Hayes hydraulic brakes Monkey Lite Bars Race Face respond 175 cranks with bash plate Hope Doctor SDG Patriot saddle Shimano XTR bottom bracket Can be viewed in Cwmbran area. Looking for as close to £400 as possible. Bike is in garage gathering dust which is a shame as it would be a good bike for someone.
