I'm very new to all this and am looking for some decent trails fairly local to where I live (Northampton) I bought a kona kikapu full sus bike the other day and have only been on a test ride so far. Safe to say I'm a lot more unfit than I thought! Also my Arse was killing me so am waiting on delivery of some padded cycling tights today! I've upgraded the rear brake from avid mechanical discs to a deore hydraulic and will be upgrading the front shortly. I'm also looking at a new rear shock as the one that's standard on the kona is the fox float and can't be adjusted so going uphill is bouncy and hard work! Any suggestions on a decent but not too expensive replacement would be great!
Anyway I'm digressing, if anyone knows any decent but not too technical trails local to me? Don't mind driving a short distance to get there either
