Get dealGet deal
now £20.99.
Good timing as I was planning on getting some more shorts but the type I bought last year seem to have increased in price. I'd just been buying cheap ones but bought a decent pair last year and a bit difference in the comfort.

Anyone seen any great deals on leggings?

Any particular reason you think its bad? Frame and components seem very good for the money. I think I've seen it in Halfords stores and looks great, no obvious quality issues or problems. Very well reviewed on the Halfords site with just about every review strongly recommending it which isn't true of every bike reviewed on Halfords.

Only 2 Trek Marlin 7's came up on ebay both local collection only plus secondhand with possible worn components and other issues. Those aren't options for most people who want a new mountain bike delivered or collected locally.

The Trek Marlin 7 is still a chinese made frame with assembly possibly outside China to avoid EU tariffs. Maybe US stock is made and assembled in China but whatever its a chinese bike with at best minor design input by Trek for the frame geometry. Saying that it looks a very generic frame probably off the shelf or minor tweaks to length. Rock Shox XC30 is still rather basic front shocks. My point is its a doubling of price literally to achieve small benefits at best. Maybe £80-100 more could be justified but 2x the money definitely not.

You sold a £550 bike for £258 when it was 6 months old; so you lost a lot of money. What's the relevance? . What was wrong with it? Have you got any more to sell?For what it's worth, I've had several used Trek bikes and they've all had bearing problems. Not impressed. If I was spending over £500 on a bike I'd go for a Specialized over a Trek any day based on this experience. Still irrelevant to this thread though. Post a better bike for this money new, or this bike for less money new, and I'll gladly eat my words .

Trek's entry level bike is £370 and way inferior to the Hellcat with BSO …Trek's entry level bike is £370 and way inferior to the Hellcat with BSO freewheel and nastier forks. I'm sure you aren't suggesting people spend £110 more to end up with such a junk bike. Frame looks worse too. The Hellcat is fit for purpose as an entry level mountain bike but the Trek Marlin 4 certainly isn't. I guess the Marlin 5 would be about the same overall. Someways the Hellcat is better and someways the Trek Marlin 5 is better but its £415 which is a huge difference in price and front shocks and drivetrain is better on the Carrera with only hydraulic brakes the noticeable upgrade on Marlin 5. I still much prefer the Carrera frame. You pay a lot to get the right badge on a bike and yet they could well be coming out of the same factory for the frame at least. If you are buying a Chinese bike anyway why not just save yourself a lot of money plus buy it from a UK importer rather than a US brand and importer. https://www.trekbikes.com/gb/en_GB/bikes/mountain-bikes/cross-country-mountain-bikes/marlin/marlin-4/p/1010600-2018/?colorCode=green


Trek Marlin 7, specs are decent for the price. You can get one off ebay for £250/300. Sold mine for £275, the buyer is very happy to have that instead of the OP.

Men are more like this;[Image] and women more like this;[Image] Lots of people are exceptions though with men preferring women's frames and vice versa. Sometimes its just preference they prefer the handlebars closer or further away. I've always had a preference for the largest frame I can get away with and hated riding smaller frames that just cater for my height with the saddle post at near maximum height and the handlebars at a lower height. I ride in possibly the least aerodynamic way possible enjoying looking at the scenery and with great visibility over cars etc.

I’d like to like gore shorts but being a 34-36 waist (large) they just don’t fit right, ive found they are tight on the waist and too baggy on the legs, with a slimmer waist they may fit better..

the tops are quality have have had a few Activeshell windstopper jackets, the gilet, turtleneck zip and base layers all quality and fit as expected, just ordered a power trail thermo jersey on crc for £45 (1/2 price

endura are a great scottish’s company, I ragged an mt500 jacket on barb wire at the weekend and emailed them, and they replied quickly they have a repair service £15 flat fee, I’m hoping they can patch it up..

in terms of shorts see if you can get hold of some endura MTR or MT500 or singletrack shorts, I have hummvee shorts but don’t like the fit personally ok for casual.
They are far more technical with stretch panels and a better fit, look overall...

i have fox shorts but but they feel flimsy boardshort like in comparison, great for summer but need something tougher in winter

TLD Troy lee make some great shorts I’m told, but many are too in your face for me
Edited by: "whatyadoinsucka" 13th Feb
Large now £33.32 with discount think I'll stick with the Humvees
So you don't like Gore shorts but found and posted the deal anyway? Fairplay.
'Tis a good deal, and ordered, but not sure.

I dunno if those are the same, click your order link and provide the product link if you like.

If you click the link I provided then it'll show if those are the ones you bought for you at the top:
amazon.co.uk/Pad…UE/

They look very similar, but I think they're different.

I've still got some Endura Humvee shorts to return - for casual shorts I fit a 31" waist.
So I bought Medium - and they're way too tight.

I don't know about Endura and Altura - the British brands, it'd be nice to get a decent british brand but I don't like their names, and they seem to make poorer cheap products.

Maybe they simply don't have the brand cache - but I'm not an Endura fan having bought the Humvee and wondering what people were raving about - but I only tried them on.

I preferred the more minimal and smarter styling of Fox.
Fox is expensive and overpriced, but can be bought on offer for more reasonable prices - and all the Endura shorts other than the original Humvee aren't really any cheaper than Fox on offer - e.g. £50-£60
I've not compared the other Endura shorts to Fox shorts, but Fox shorts seem to be made from more technical fabric, with a smarter and more minimal/performance focused design.

Dunno, still struggling to find some decent mountain bike shorts that actually fit without paying a fortune.
Fox 32 fit me if they have the inner velcro tabs - the plastic integrated belt only doesn't work for me as 32 is actually too large.
Need to try their 30s.
31 will probably be correct, dunno.
Their sizing seemed consistent at least.

Check the amount of material remaining on your pads. Less than 1mm pad thickness means replacement time.
Suntour forks can be great or rubbish depending on the money. Good v brakes are better than shit disk brakes. This is a superb bike for the money. The only doubters are bike snobs stating it is inferior to a £500 bike...REALLY LOL!

You can't have it both ways! Tubeless allows lower pressures & more grip without the risk of pinch punctures. Pump the tyres up hard to get less rolling resistance but less grip too, tubeless or not. Tubeless also reduces overall wheel weight slightly but requires more maintenance as the sealant won't last forever. You still need to carry a spare tube in case the sealant can't cope.

forks are definately personal preference I’m used to Reba and pikes by rockshox but for my latest build I got a heavily discounted 130mm fox 34kashima

Looking for a bit of advice as I don't know much about bikes. I checked my bike and the rim says 29er 622 x 19C 6061, will the 29x2.2 fit my bike okay?
Ordered 2 2.2 29er for front and back, really tempted by the 2.4 for the front but doubt I have the clearance and think it will be over kill once the worst of the winter is over

My 9 year old where gform Shin pads. He won't wear anything else. He's taken some almighty bashes over the last couple of years but loves these. However, the Shin pads listed on this site are different from the ones that amazon lists for sports. I think these are more for cycling

i know what you mean in my playing days it was ankle and full shinpad the ones players wear nowadays along with the boots are really flimsy and wouldnt have taken on the tough teams that kick everyone up in the air rather than play footy
Great price, I payed around 40 for the football shin pads. They are extremely comfortable so long as you get the right size obviously. They stay in place and are almost unnoticeable when playing. I've taken a few Sunday league blows on them and they do hold up well however I wouldn't feel as confident taking a full set of studs to the shin with these than regular shinnys.

How would these compare with something like Schwalbe MTB marathons?


They won't roll as well as the Schwable but off-road they will offer superior grip .
they are tubeless ready so in theory tape up your rims put a valve in, put some sealer in the tyre and bow up never to have an inner tube again

I'm no expert on bulgarian property but even those links have both good and bad. I think the scams are in the minority but some areas do have higher crime rates. There are videos on youtube of people who bought houses from peanuts and are happy. There may be cheap property in moss side but I'm not moving there. You'll find cheap property all over Bulgaria its not just in high crime areas although I'm sure those are likely to have the cheapest prices.

So, for the bargain price of £3K you can purchase a condemned and abandoned property without metalled road access. Amazing. And EU citizens can stay in Bulgaria for 90 days in any 6 month period...except we are not going to be in the EU. Great.

Oh, and every professional advisor recommends paying for a special alarm and private security to respond to your property due to the high levels of theft from holiday homes. And just to top it all off - lots of properties were built without permits which there is no guarantee any eBay properties actually have...

I also have broad feet and I find Lake shoes broad enough.

No - when I researched these they come up narrow. If you are broad Shimano and Northwave are good options.
