  17. OUR ADVICE FOR YOUR FIRST RIDE
    Tip No.1 When mountain biking, there is always the risk of a fall: don't forget to wear a helmet. Tip No.2 Even if the saddle is comfortable, cycling shorts with a pad (saddle-shaped foam) are a real plus for preventing glute pain. Tip No.3 If you don't want to stop to drink, bring water in a bottle or water bladder to access it while riding. Tip No.4 Punctures are always possible, remember to bring a repair kit.

    Bike feels really good on and off road, it’s light enough to manoeuvre easily and comfortable on long rides. However gears at present are a little temperamental keeps missing cogs and jumps out of gear when under strain uphills

    How disappointing the first time I took the bike out the chain came off when changing from middle cogs to large at the front now left with 16 gears until I can get it to a bike shop and get the gears set up properly. With a 150 mile round trip it's not feasible for me to take it back to get the gears adjusted. Maybe i would have been better off going to a local well known bike shop where I could have got a similar bike cheaper and been able to take it back if there was a problem.

    I bought this bike for my daughter to get into mountain biking and I have ridden it a few times myself, obviously there are budget components fitted but the overall look of the bike is excellent. The ride of the bike is very good and the frame is quite lightweight. Superb quality for the price.
