Welcome


Welcome to the world of Global Riders!

This site is a showcase of all the content from the Global Riders Network.

That being the case, visitors to this site may well see a lot more information and discussion than they are really interested in. It is recommended that visitors browse on a more localised partner site that has a limited amount of content. These sites are listed on the the Global Riders Network homepage.

That said, it's always interesting to see what's happening elsewhere in the world, so feel free to browse around.

Enjoy! Smiling

For Sale: RockShox Reverb - 34.9mm - 420mm (for parts)

That one looks like it's had a hard life. It came with a bike I've just bought second hand. The previous owner did say that it was not functioning properly and it was my intention to try to fix it. After opening it and seeing the state of the Piston/Poppet, I'll stop here.
Could be used for practice before working on a good one or for parts.

Battle of the Bridge Round 2 – The Red and White Walkers Dominate

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Winter had well and truly arrived this morning for Round 2 of Battle of the Bridge. The industrial wasteland of Beaumont Road was the venue for the 2nd round and for those unfamiliar, tight hairpin corners awaited them. A fantastic turnout for this morning’s race, with the coffee van pumping out plenty of brews for riders and spectators alike. SuVelo and NSCC brought strong teams to the Crit race of the North, while Manly for all their posturing during the week, had a decidedly weaker team.
