    Oh good, I was hoping that this would disappear.

    The truth is my attitude was shite! I was unprepared,a as it was only a bit of fun.

    Ok ok, the real truth is that before I even got to the off-road, somehow I had a puncture after 2 miles of Tarmac, I knew I hadn't brought a spare tube as I always ride on mooses so said to the boys I was with that I was going back to the start to fix it and would catch them up. The bike went straight back onto the van and I went home sulking like a real big baby. I called myself obscene names all day, but I am feeling ok again now.
    To casual and to confident, I never even carry a bum bag when doing enduros. need to make some changes before the corinium (trials tyre again)

    So I still ain't been up the pant glas steps, maybe I'll tie in with you guys for a Sunday ride out soon.

    Gar you do what you want, but I recommend you use a tube cos not only did mine come off, but my mates did as well. And if you do run a tube use around 12psi in it. There's not much chance of a puncture at this venue but it can happen.

    Ive always used tubes for the Corinium as the void in a trials tyre is bigger than a enduro tyre and i have seen other peoples tyres come off the rim. Maybe a brand new moosse will be ok!!

    I will be purchasing a new ultra heavy duty tube.
