Morewood Makulu. Dream build. Dirt 100 winner

$1200 GBP
Here we have my Morewood Makulu Downhill DH Mountain Bike. This is a dream build with massive spec. I built it up from new. This bike is a Dirt 100 winner. Unfortunately I'm not using it anymore and its gathering dust and deserves a new owner. This has been an incredible bike and will serve its next owner well. Read the summary from Dirt 100 below. Suspension has been properly serviced and maintained. Bos suspension is extremely reliable. Comes with everything listed and as per photos. No scratches on stanchions. This is a stunning bike and turns heads everywhere you go. Buyer can pay by PayPal but would prefer cash on collection. Collection preferred but can deliver using SendBike for £35. Difficult to price so open to offers.

But what is clear when you mount the Makulu is that it is different from anything you’ve ridden before, the suspension truly isolates the rider from the ground in a way which at first is almost disarming. But it doesn’t take long to get used to floating over the trail, and with the terrain posing no threat to the Makulu it only leaves you to do one thing – go faster! The Morewood’s amazing rear suspension is well matched by good sizing and geometry meaning this is a much sought after frameset and one that the Dirt staff have not wanted to give back! It’s a tough call, but if we had to say which DH bike has the best suspension then the Makulu would be our choice. From experimenting with other shocks it is clear that the linkage, which is driven by the single pivot swingarm, plays a considerable part in the performance, but stick a BOS shock in there and you’ve got a truly amazing package. The two products bring out the best of each other, a match made in heaven if ever there was one. If you then go and stick a pair of BOS forks up front you won’t ever be able to blame your suspension, it’s perfectly balanced and offers all the grip and composure that you’ll ever need. Luckily the rest of the design doesn’t let the side down either, you get great geometry and over the years this bike has proven to be one of the most reliable. Off–the–shelf performance like this doesn’t come around every day.

Pink bike removed my previous comment about how terrible I thought this was. Just not good for the sport in any way.

No offence but if we want DH to get taken more seriously in wider circles and the world at large then the reporting needs to be much better than this.

Banned in the USA: Part 1
In the uk we have the forestry commission. They are the government department responsible for protecting, expanding and promoting the sustainable management of woodlands and increasing their value to society and the environment. They actively encourage mountain biking in their forests and support and invest in trail building all over the country. Guess we are lucky to have this setup

YT Bikes Are Now Available in the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia
It's absurd to say your local bike shop is the hub of the bike community. In my experience they don't organise trail maintenance, group rides or anything. They are a business that is there to support the owners and their own employees. Maybe 5 or 6 people benefit at most. The only thing you are losing is the convenience of buying stuff there and then. Trail building groups and riding clubs will continue regardless of whether or not your LBS store is there.
