  6. Round 10 of the Peak Classic trials championship takes place this Sunday 20th October, at Dudwood farm, Elton, Derbyshire DE4 2LS. The variety of sections available will I’m sure provide the usual great trial, Including river sections and some rocks to tackle. Many thanks to Barry for the use of his venue. Trial starts at 11am, entries close 5 minutes before. See you Sunday Andy & the team.
  7. In my local club you cant use twin leading shoe brakes on twinshocks
  8. Yes that's one of Petes bikes. He has spoken to the police
  9. I always lock my bike to the trailer and have a bolt through the hole in the towing arm so you can't get the trailer off the car. A friend years ago didn't and while he went in to his house to open the gates his bike was nicked off the trailer. He was gone about 30s and someone had it.

  12. Try the owners club, they have a good total setup for sale.
  13. I would and did with my 38 year old Beamish Suzuki. I went for hytech reeds in mine and at just £14 it was a no brainer. In fact they are for a ty250 as no one makes them for the Beamish and as the Beamish Reed block is almost a direct copy of the TY Reed block they are bolt straight in.
  14. How old were the stock reeds. If there old as in from back in the day. Then it's wise to get rid of them anyway. If they fail because of age they will take the piston n barrel with them. At least if the fibre reeds fail they will do no damage.
