Opinion: Who Owns a Trail?
I run a small Group of Volunteer Trail Builders We GPS a potential Track We pass GPS to FC for permission to build on the Queens land as they are only the caretakers We design the track We pay for our own tools and materials which can cost thousands We build track with an average 4 volunteers and the current project has taken every Saturday for 8 months so far We have to buy 5 million public liability insurance in case some selfish dick rides track half built and crashes then tries to claim We finish track and test ride it The FC then send an inspector to sign the track off Then we can open it but I guess the track belongs to the Queen :) All we ask is Don't ride the Trail until it is finished and we say its open Don't ask when its going to be finished unless..You are going to come and help Don't ask me how much we get paid I am a volunteer you douche Don't skid it makes me work and wrecks the trail, learn to use your fekin brakes Make regular donations we have collection boxes at Trail Centre Café and a Paypal button on our website Show some respect when you see trail builders even if its only a "thanks guys much appreciated" remember we are building in our riding time Cheers Alan Chairman of the Dean Trail Volunteers, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, UK

For Sale On One 456 Black with Grey Decal RRP £400 Well ridden with the usual scrapes and paint chips No Cracks Very Tough Frame Weighs 3.3lb Disc Only 26" Wheel Version The Carbon 456 builds on the success of the original 456 Steel by taking tried-and-tested long-travel geometry, losing a lot of weight and adding a dollop of carbon comfort. Although this is a super-stiff frame, the light build and inherent vibration damping qualities of carbon give this bike a lithe, agile feel that’s completely at odds with its ability to swallow boulders whole. In the case of the 456 Carbon, the result is a frame that weighs at least 1kg (2lb) less than the steel equivalent, but still passes the tough new CEN standards for using forks with up to 160mm (6.3in) travel. It looks good too, with a smooth, sculpted appearance that belies its strength. The tapered head tube houses a massive 1.5in lower bearing and there’s enough mud clearance at the rear to run 2.5in tyres in the thickest gloop you can ﬁnd. Probably. Bolt-on dropouts make for an easy singlespeed conversion too.
