Light Full Suspension Mountain Bike

    full suspension
  • mountain bike technology has made great advances since first appearing in the early 1990s. Early full suspension frames were heavy and tended to bounce up and down while a rider pedaled.

  • A bike with both front and rear suspension.

  • Mountain bikes that have frames that allow both the front and rear wheels to move and absorb shock when they hit an object.

    mountain bike

Day113: Cleaning the bikes

Its a bit noisey.. but thats because it was taken at ISO3200 + Pulled another 0.8 stops = ISO5760! Not bad for an almost dark room (the overhead light is blown).

That aside, I stripped my old full suspension Nirve mountain bike down today, and went through and cleaned it extensively. The cassette and chainring were absolutely NASTY. I had no idea that they were both a natural aluminum color, and not black! I took about two hours and cleaned every little bit, and then rinsed it all down in the shower. It came out looking fairly new except for the various battle scars.

I also think that this might be a contributing factor to why I am single :).

Lucy's new bike - Carrera Subway 24

My youngest daughter's new bike, a Carrera Subway 24. It seems very difficult to buy a decent bike for a 8 year old. All of the others I looked at were either pink with an iron frame and poor components, or a heavy pretend mountain bike with rubbishy suspension and even worse components.

This one's very light with 7005 alloy frame, Kenda road tyres (100 psi!), no suspension, full mudguards, sensible 7 speed gears and good V brakes. Unfortunately only available in Halfords (but made by Merida), I took it away boxed and built it up myself.

She's chuffed to bits with it. Especially when she overtook a couple of blokes on their mountain bikes on the cycle path this weekend.
