Calling all mountain-bikers! Just thought I’d throw a quick post about something that might tickle your swingarm.

If your old bike is rusting away, like a poor neglected Aibo, it could be worth a quick jaunt to this year’s National Bike Show to eye-up a replacement. If you’re at a loose end, it’s happening at the Birmingham NEC on the 28th and 29th of April.

And, while you’re there, why not check out Santa Cruz’s latest two-wheeler: The Heckler. It doesn’t shout abuse at whoever walks past, that would be ridiculous, but it is a lightweight and rugged bike-of-all-trades – just the way you like ‘em. Don't ask us why, but it also comes with a bottle opener!! The frame costs £1000, and completed bikes start at around the £2000 mark.
