SRAM GX 11 Spd Shifter, Mech, Cassette

Great condition, taken off a bike that has only ever seen light use. The only wear noticeable is in the black coating of the cassette. I’ve found these actually start to look better the older they get! And very light scrape on the mech. 11 speed shifter (no mount, will take descrete or bar clamp) 11 speed mech 11 speed 10-42 cassette (XD driver) All squeaky clean and ready to rip Price is inclusive of U.K. postage

Wharncliffe's Wharncouver Trail Bulldozed
@thenotoriousmic: I applaud the sentiment as I’m sure many others here would but I own my house and the land it stands on and if somebody moved in and built a half pipe in my front yard despite me frequently asking them to refrain...you get the picture. The FC owns vast swathes of land and leases the rest. Yes, it’s a government body and its’ role is generally to improve our lives but I can’t go and build a trail in a hospital without causing conflicts either - no matter how rad I thought that would be XD The FC has a tough job with user groups, if they’re seen to accept trail building they also assume liability, as would I if I let somebody put up a half pipe in my front yard (hell I’ve been told to cut a tree down to avoid insurance claims from passers by getting a twig in the face, a friend was told by the Police that the glass Intended to deter burglars on his rear wall could become a liability issue if a burglar decided to sue). Then there’s the conservation issue which is equally as real. From my experience digging our trails for years I haven’t met a single area manager or other employee of the FC that has simply disliked the activities of riders, they dislike the difficult situation that arises and they’re usually pretty sound, they’d be stupid not to be. Hostility isn’t gonna help anyone. Where an agreement can never be reached there will always be this situation where every now and then the trails get knocked down because legally the FC doesn’t see them, they can’t. So they will carry on with their work regardless (and these days what they do is very good work). Agreements will only be reached in rare cases so there are probably hundreds of areas just like the ones being discussed. It’s ok for us to be frustrated but to be pissed at the FC doesn’t help nor is it really where the frustration is best placed imo. For what it’s worth I’d love to see Wharny become one of those rare cases and I know they’ve got a good group of people at the core of the scene there. Would it be the same though? I mean there’s have to be give and take on both sides... If it helps anyone reading this we’ve basically been told directly by the FC “no wooden structures and no stand alone, purpose built features”. Essentially what I took from it was they’d let a bit of a single track go. And if that singletrack incorporated ‘natural’ features that definitely weren’t stand alone jumps :P then we’d be ok. Which is the direction we went while also looking for a new area to dig. We only have a small crew and only 2 main builders who work their asses off. We can’t afford to risk the demolition but completely understand the FCs point of view.

PPs I’m not saying the situation in sheff is exactly the same. I’ve ridden up there but unsure of the intricacies of the relationship between the riders and the FC up there.

PS the one I’m talking about is a SSSI ffs. It’s been a great riding spot for years and I know it will continue to be but sometimes you’ve got to try and see the big picture. There’s plenty more hills to dig on.

One of our local spots in Derbyshire recently had the same treatment as a well documented and planned part of the FCs management plan. Everyone turns around and calls them pricks for bulldozing their trails. Ahm..nope. They just drove over them in order to harvest the timber. And now they’re replanting natives. They don’t hate the trails so much as they’re just in the way (granted there’s a liability issue but largely around here they’ll overlook a certain amount of trail building until they need to get in there). Sorry but if you build on somebody else’s land - somebody who makes it quite clear their intentions for the land - and seek no dialogue until the very last minute then you’re in no place to call anyone names.

@Veloscente: all I know is getting blazed is never gonna help me get better on a bike in any way. Quite the opposite for me. Perhaps i need to find a better dealer.

Surely this is something that elite level riders should forcibly continue to flount. It doesn’t increase their chances of winning elsewhere in ‘sanctioned’ calendar events and seems to simply hand power to the UCI and their sponsors? Which may or may not be contracted but seems too far a restriction on any given athlete for the UCI’s sake? I know you’ve mentioned this a lot and I know for sure you’re more clued up than I am but my thought is simply that the riders say ‘fuck it’ and keep going. They’re not doping, they’re not cheating. They’re doing what riders do and should continue to do and appear at local grass roots races, calendar events or no.

@bman33: sounds awesome, what specifics should I look for? Can I find them legally?
