Plenty of excellent off piste at FOD, not to mention descents that last longer than 10 seconds. It's just a shame you need a second mortgage to meet the parking costs if you park in the main carpark.

Never been FOD. Those pebbles at Cannock are pretty sketchy at best. Still a decent loop though. I’ll need a guide to find the off piste stuff.

I'm hoping to get there this year. It'd be cool to do some laps with fellow threaders.

Absolutely! Hopefully it will be dry this year too!

Last time I went it was £7 or £8. Kinda taking the piss IMO.

Yh for height of season but still worth it as cafe is gooooood plus someone gotta pay for all the tarmac ffs

Pretty sure it was that price when we went in Feb, but yeah, more tarmac, it's the future! lol

Is this the same for the spaces going up past the uplift stop? That's where I've always parked, haven't been back for a year or two.

I'm sure many of you have seen my bike before, but this seems like a cool thread where people would be interested in seeing it.


I designed and made this frame myself at University over 2 years. I designed every aspect of it from the suspension platform to the design of the parts. I did a lot of prototyping in CAD, then 3D printed a lot of the parts, then eventually CNC machined the parts or made them on a lathe out of steel. I then got a professional frame builder (Gael from Baudou Bikes if anybody is interested) to weld it together for me. Tubes are Reynolds 853.


It has a flipchip. 142mm rear travel. By changing the flipchip you can run it with either a 140 or a 160 fork (trail or enduro mode on the same bike so-to speak). 29 wheels.

I'm potentially looking to sell some of these frames later this year if anybody is interested Salute

AFAIK it's for all parking, but I haven't been up there to check.

@tom666. Yes, we've seen the Morph before, but that doesn't make it any less stunning.
