    Duncan, if your taking the Apollo fs26 and I don’t mean to be rude but Glentress will be hitting you hard on that machine. I snapped a bike at that place, and I didn’t even have a crash. Good luck.

    Thanks for the advice Crom I guess if I’m going to abuse a bike it may as well be the Apollo if I break it it gives me an excuse to upgrade sooner lol

    Safety first mate. Braking a bike is one thing, but some bikes are also dangerous in their construction and not really designed to endure the stresses and force inflicted by actual mountain bike trails. The Apollo is one of them, and you may seriously end up hurting yourself.

    I don’t want to say don’t ride it or don’t have fun on it, I saw the video you posted in the other thread, and yes that is essentially all mountain biking is at our level, just having fun on whatever bike you own at any price range, but there is a limit on on minimum requirements needed to enjoy the sport safely. Just take care out there buddy is all I’m saying.

    Yea leave the Apollo at home mate, you won’t go wrong following the red and the blue at Gt, friendly lads in the bike shop next to the carpark will sort you out with a nice ride. They have some nice orange 5s to play with.
