    ....to go wrong ?made 3 attempts to ride this year while on hols and something unfixable on bike has broke every time meaning no ride and end of hols -marshalled last weekend at Eastridge BES then camped near Hopton woods -got bikes out of car, got kitted up-went to set sag on rear shock and it let go big time -leaking everywhere-expensive end to hols and no hols left to go back there this year-just put dropper seatpost on it to try for first time too! Feel like I'm not meant to ride any more☹️

    That's a shame to hear @Kath , and I know all to well how repeat mechanical failures can really kill the fun. Hope you can get your shock sorted quickly ... hopefully the shock looks worse than it is and is a simple fix or even a warranty job through TFTuned or similar.
    Good that you've got a 2nd bike, can still enjoy the good weather and kick up some dust :D
    Do you marshal often or normally ride enduro events?

    @Mike Chapman have got most offensive words filtered out, rather than hash and asterisk I opted for some more comical alternatives ;)

    No more hols left for fun now but a day at Degla in a couple of weeks-have marshalled at all BDS and BES round this year for Si Paton who deserves credit for organising great events but have done the odd xc race myself just for fun-shock out of warranty but hopefully just the seal has gone
