« on: March 30, 2016, 11:30:03 PM »
Hello all, i am Mark and have recently rediscovered the joys of mtbing after a short 15 yr break away, and also rediscovered aching knees! Looking to join you guys in Clyne if possible one Thursday, i have ridden there a couple of times and is a great track, also afan, got myself a solar storm light from ebay (thanks for the tip) and a Norco sight 7.2 which seems to do the job ok. Hope to see you guys soon

Hi Mark, welcome to the forum. Nice bike, it was on my short list when I got a new bike last year.  8) Hope to catch you out on a trail sometime. :)

Welcome to the forum, Mark. Nice bike, as Pilau says. Were you riding around Swansea when you last rode, 15 years ago?

Thanks very much guys, yes it's the aluminium not the carbon 7.2, but it does seem to make the climbs more bearable than I was expecting. I also still have the 1998 Kona koa in the shed which I might make into a project to get back on the trails someday.  No I have moved around quite a bit and am fairly new to the area, that was all around the north and south downs in Sussex,  which was a lot flatter and not as much fun, so am excited to explore all the trails around here. Hope to see you on a trail soon.
