    Hmmm, I was with some guys today doing trail maintenance over on Holmburry Hill and one of them (don't know his name but he was on a Yeti blue cotic single speed) was describing a guy a kawa green UFO and orange bomber forks.

    Now there can't be too many bikes matching that description!

    Nice photos solamanda. I take it you haven't had much snow wherever that is? The ground looks surprisingly dry.

    Were you talking to a guy called John, quite skinny early 30s guy? He also rides a Turner.

    They're taken at Rogate, which is some short dh trails near Petersfield/Hindhead. Lots to play on there.

    Three reasons, Mike who runs dialled is a mate so I've had a few of his bikes. Secondly I botched up the paintjob on the forks and wanted a quick fix to hide the poor job and thirdly, I'm waaaay too tight to pay £25 odd for some offical decals so thought the dialled decals would look good.

    Karve do you know about the short DH (ish) track that runs off Summer Lightening? It's fun and very worthwhile, far better than Summer Lightening itself.

    Also, there is a nice (again short) run from the top of Deliverance that runs down to the green lane near the start of Summer Lightening, I think called Waggledance or it could be Regurgitator. This is great fun, rooty, has a decent gradient, nice turns that you can blast.

    On Pitch Hill, over at the back, there is a very short but very steep and very technical DH run, that's easily as difficult to ride fast as anything you'll get in Wales. Think of it as a 30 second version of an NPS course. This is over the back of Pitch, running of the track that takes you from the top where the seat is, over to the top car park at the Windmill. It's about 200m down from the seat, on the left.

    There are loads of others that are all ten times better than BKB or SL, but they are all short.

    Solly - Poseur!

    one of them (don't know his name but he was on a Yeti blue cotic single speed)
    Yup that was me. <<waves>>

    There's a few more fun DHish trails too hidden about the place. They're in varying states of repair though. Did the one off the back of Pitch in the afternoon after we'd finished digging.
