Cann Woods Mountain Biking

There have been some changes in Cann Woods recently with lots of work being undertaken in enhancing and fixing the runs and jumps in the Downhill area.  Thanks to all the guys who have taken part in this, many from The 'Official Cann Woods Riders Page' on Facebook.

Thought the new end of Home Run was going to be sorely missed with it's little rutty sections, but the new alternative route has come into it's own, a twisty little run in with a neat kick off a small hump and it just spits you back out onto the fire road with a bang!

There are enough small trail sections in Cann Woods which can be linked to give a satisfying ride once all the little tracks have been discovered.  Alternatively get your kicks from the Downhill Section with a number of small runs with various intertwining links  - well worth a visit.

For directions and information call into The dogs wheels Bicycle Shop at Faraday Mill, Plymouth and we will scrawl you out a diagram.

Regular Chain Wear Checks - Save on expensive parts

Regular Chain Wear inspections can save on unecessary premature expensive replacement parts.  If you catch chain wear early enough you will get away with just replacing the chain.  Leave it until the chain is totally worn and you will need to replace the cassette and perhaps even the Chainset which can be quite expensive.  For the cost of a chain wear indicator from £5-£6 pounds you can keep your bike on the road for less.  Most chain wear indicators will have two measurements, one to tell you to replace the chain as it is starting to wear, the second tells you you have left it too late and must replace other components also.  https://the-dogs-wheels.myshopify.com/products/topeak-chain-hook-and-wear-checker-measurer-indicator-tool-mtb-bicycle-bike

Bluegrass Superbold - Adjustable Dial Fit MTB / BMX Helmet

For those who prefer P*ss Pot style Helmets rather than BMX or Fullface for the Mountain Biking, we have just received a shipment of Bluegrass Superbold helmets.  Unlike many other helmets of this type which do not have any means of adjustment these Bluegrass BMX Style helmets have a Dial Fit Retention System to ensure a perfest fit rather than the usual just make do!
With sizing ranges of 55-58cms and 59-62cms there is a size to fit most.  ABS Polymer outer shell, anti allergenic padsand intelligent fusion inner shell (varying densities) coupled with Union Jack styling this is perfect for those wanting a little more quality from their BMX / MTB Lid
