It’s that time of year when the bills go up and we have to start forking out for Christmas, basically the worst time of year to be thinking about spending money on bikes.
We know that mountain biking isn’t cheap but don’t worry though, there’s a few ways you can still get out and ride without shelling out a shit tonne of money.
Of course loads of you go riding locally most weeks, probably so much that you’re bored of it, but there’s more to where you live than meets the eye.
Try hitting the streets or have a sweet sweet jib session on the trails you normally blast through. Think bowls, parks, pump tracks. Even pancake-flat Blackpool has a world class BMX track – there are no excuses.
Use 26 inch wheels
Let the weekend warriors follow the wheelsize trends and pick yourself up a bargain 26er they’ve left behind. There are loads of components and frames that brands are looking to get rid of on the cheap so take the chance to pick yourself up a bargain.
