Hi All,
Greenaer bike shop are looking for staff at the minute. They are based off Pearse St. in Dublin city.
Dealing with a variety of bikes but mainly E-bikes and commuter/urban bikes. I worked there through college and the lads are sound and it's a busy but fun work environment. If you know anyone interested pass on the information.

Hey Stephen,

Have the Magicshine lights and I have been out for a few spins locally at night last winter. I did plenty of day spins and evening spins over the summer and I really don't want to stop biking over the winter (it keeps me sane!!).  Meeting up with others half way might be an option alright, but hopefully there might be a few others in the same boat and looking for a slightly later start.

Hey Brian,
Welcome back dude. I was only thinking about ya the other day on a spin that hadn't seen you around for a while. Yep I guess thats the cost of having nippers. There's still enough light up to about 8.30pm if you pick the right trails (west facing slopes on a clear eve, not too much tree cover). One option is to try to hook up with Ticknock 7pm or 6.30pm spins at a halfway point or something. Maybe there's other folks in similar situation. Alternatively if its a case of going alone or not at all then just get out for an hour of power lap of the Coilltes - push hard on the climbs and cruise the descents. Get some decent lights (Magicshine!) and take the speed down a wee notch and err on the side of caution and you'll be grand and then try and hook up for a daytime spin at the weekend if possible.

Hi Guys,

I reluctantly rescinded my Club membership about a year ago (after 6/7 years) as I just wasn't getting out on spins with you lovely people (two wee kids ruining my fun!  :-\). I want to re-join you beautiful people, but I really only have time for night spins at the moment and more specifically spins starting at around 7:30pm or 8pm. I'm just trying to see if there would be any interest in doing night spins starting at this time? My plan is just to start doing easy night spins in Ticknock as I'm new to night spins and then build on from there as my confidence grows.

Just remember, those screw extractors go in the opposite direction to a drill bit. As if you're removing the screw

Tried them out and not very successful unfortunately. Manage to drill out the allen key from one of them, but took a fair bit of effort. And now it's too rounded out to move it with a new allen key.
Too many other things on at the moment to find a solution but I reckon I will need some sort of industrial drill.

amazing video and skills, although we will never know how many goes it took to look like that? It's not the case of bombing down a trail and performing all those tricks!

How do these guys not smash their rims?

Love to have the skills though.
