Hi I bought a bike a couple of weeks ago at the beginning of the shutdown. It is the first time I have owned a bike in 10 yrs, I used to be really into mountain biking and I have been loving getting back out. It is a Saracen Zenith trail, I literally bought whatever they had in the store at roughly the price point I was happy with, as I was worried that the bike shop would get closed. Ive been for a few rides now, and it seems like a nice enough bike. Back when i used to ride, I had clipless pedals that could also be used with normal shoes, or that you could pre-emptively clip out of for tricky terrain. I had bit of a google and seen pedal like the shiman xt t8000 and the shimano m424. Do any of you have experience with this kind of pedal and have any reccomendation? On the same note, anyone reccomend a particular mtb shoe? I was looking at the shimano me7, the giro chamber II and the mavic xa matryx. For bike racks/towbar I have never owned one before and I dont know what to look for. I have a BMW 335. Wife +2kids, means I should be looking at something that can hold 4 bikes. Would you have any reservations about the towbars from halfords? They look kind of precarious, do they really do no damage to the car? (Obviously I have been sensible and I am only directing my bike enquiries to ocuk rather than a bike forum).
