Looks like just the right bike for riding around in Essex Grumph!

Funny that they've chosen to run the Olympic mountain biking in Essex also... rather than somewhere in the UK that actually has mountains...

Sorry, still not got pics of my bike. You wont approve Grumps as the disc rotors are smaller than the ones on my car...

Managed a 25 mile TT on my bike on Saturday in 58:05 ... well happy with that.

Average speed for the event 25.8mph.

If you were a real man Rick, you'd be attempting the TT on Grumphs rig. Just think how much fitter you'd be with all that pedal bob and drag from the 3" tyres

Why would I want to ride a bike with cartwheels  

I think we could start a mountain biking v road biking bickering thread here ...

Campag v Shimano anyone, Armstong clean/dirty?

Lets not go down that road/mudtrack please. I have a mountain bike, a single speed road bike and soon to have a full susser rig so I don't really see myself as in any particular faction!

ER what makes you think I ride anywhere near Essex?

Hythe's in Kent, the Garden of England, albeit a hilly bit , but at least it's not
like the composte heap on the North Shore..

Sorry Grumph, didn't mean to offend! I meant the east in general.

The Whyte does look like a nice bit of kit. Is the quoted 28lb weight of it relevant to a bike of your size... or my size?! Either way, its pretty fappin light for that sort of set up. Think my hardtail is around 23-24lbs and that ain't heavy!

It's getting on a bit now, I've been waiting for the new carbon jobbie whilst
contemplating distributing this...



An interesting bit of kit.

But with quite a high price point, over six grand..

I saw them a while back. Considering the weight of some of the more conventional looking Scott carbon frames I'm not really sure they will catch on. They do look mental though.
