    XC Ducky's Modern-Retro Carbolicious (or is it Carboniferous?) Anthem.

    OK, so as much as anything else, this post is about showing off the diversity of MTB amazingness that Bike Of The Month candidates may be drawn from.... :) One day in August 2014 a bloke wheeled this thing into the shop wanting an assessment of it 'cos he wanted to sell it in favour of...

    [Found] Bike For a Mate

    Greetings 'Burners, As the title suggests, I've been enlisted to help find a bike for a mate who's been copping a bit of a nibble from the MTB bug. Not looking for anything too nutso, hence the budget, but likewise not a complete dunger either, 'cos it is going to be ridden properly...
