Seeing as I cant ride over a twig without 140mm of plushness I'm after a RS Sektor/Rev or Fox Float 140mm, 200mm+ Tapered Steerer, 9mmQR fork.

Bit of a longshot but If anyone has such a beast in their shed that they want to get rid of id be interested in buying.

Cheers.

You get in the queue young Skywalker!

Richie, there are loads on ebay - just steer clear of bidding on 140/150mm Talas. Don't wont to be bidding against you.
Never cease to be amazed!

Hi Martin, I appear to have just won a pair on eBay. Went for them with a low price so didn't expect to win. Sorry if you've gone to any trouble taking pics etc. they actually have a 15mm dropouts so may be interested in wheels if you are looking to sell. Cheers

Some 2011 Rockshox Sektor 140mm Solo Air

Pretty basic but got them for £72.

You ever re-laced a different hub into an existing front wheel!? :dry:

You can't moan at that - nice when you get a real bargain from ebay.

I've done a couple of wheels in the past. It's not that complicated, especially if you have another wheel with the same number of spokes to follow the pattern. Some good guides on Youtube.

Final trueing is another matter, especially if the rims are not spot on but your friendly LBS can always sort that for not a lot.

What's the worst that can happen?

Tools

The forest is full of hazards that can bring an end to your ride, so bring a mini pump, spare tube and multi-tool so we can all spend more time pedalling.

Essential

It's simple NO helmet, NO ride. Other than that you can wear whatever keeps you warm, dry and happy. But, be warned some days the forest can be extremely muddy.

No problem, we have regular riders who are 25 years young and some who are 50+. As long as you can keep up you are more than welcome to join us.

About

MBRO35 (Mountain Bike Riders Over 35) are a social group of riders, not a club. As you may have guessed we are mostly over 35 years of age although some that ride are younger so don't let that put you off.

The group ride on a Saturday morning at 11am in Epping Forest which is to the North East of London. A lot of us have lived around and cycled in the forest for a good number of years and we are lucky to have some regular riders who know their way around the miles of singletrack very well. We ride all year round and usually get a pretty good turn out in all but the foulest weather. We are a sociable group and the emphasis is on enjoyment rather than speed or the mileage travelled. Having said that, the rides can be fairly quick at times and whilst we welcome riders of all abilities you will need a good level of fitness in order to keep up as well as a mechanically sound mountain bike. We ride mostly on the forest singletrack, the narrowness of the trails and exposed tree roots make for some challenging technical riding.

In addition to the regular Saturday rides we also do forest night rides on a Wednesday evening at 7pm as well as occasional away days or weekends. If you prefer your wheels on firmer ground, there is also a strong road contingent within the group that often rides out into the Essex and Hertfordshire countryside on a Saturday or Sunday. The road rides usually leave earlier in the day and head out via High Beech for trips of anything up to 70 miles. Most local rides are followed by a debrief in The Station House pub in Chingford where thanks to a very amiable Landlady we have a place to wash the bikes and store them in safety while we have a few beers and discuss the events of the day. You can also read about some of our most recent rides in the Ride Reports section on the forum.
