    Had my bike since March this year and thought it was about time I used it for what i bought it for and stop trying to keep it clean :lol3


    Went for a trip down to Wales to see family at start of November and was going to do some trail riding but with all the rain recently and the majority of lanes there involving mud and water crossings it wasnt really possible since i still had the standard tyres fitted.

    Ended up finding a nice long trail near Elan Valley riding along the side of a few reservoirs.

    The bottom line is the trail.

    Not many photos but had my gopro with me and made a short video

    Very impressed with the bikes handling on the trail, cant wait to get some better tyres and try it out again :1drink
