Surrey Hills - Judges Chair
#1
The Judges chair is the only trail/feature I know of at Surrey that I havent actually ridden, although there is obviously plenty I havent ridden that I dont know of!
Anyway, so far I have never actually come across it so dont know where it is. So can anyone please explain its location or mark it on a map and post the link?
Would be very grateful, thanks in advance.

Rock Drop is good! Judges Seat is easy Si, the Perry drop is better IMO.

Cheers Russ,
At the moment i'm working wed/thur/fri. The weather is looking great this week so if I can I will try and take a couple of days off, in which case I will let you know if I can make it.

Nice one. Surprised you rode the Blood round Surrey Si, must have been hard work?

I doubt its any heavier than your enduro or my old supreme.

What you think of the drops Si, nothing much hey.

You have the helmet ive been looking at, they are silly light, how is it for you?

I think it has an ubber slack seat tube though and a single ring. I definitely need all my gears round Surrey on the Enduro.

He was knackered when we got back to the car park. That blood reminds me of a tank. I'm sure he'll comment. And the drop is very easy but a bit hard on the wrists I found. That's likely my small 100mm travel fork though.

Blood is a b**ch to pedal round, not sure why exactly, its about 1 1/2lbs heavier than the five at 33 1/2lbs so the weight shouldnt be such an issue.

I was using Ardent tyres which roll nice and fast, (but dont grip for sh1t!). I think it probably is more to do with geometry, the seat angle is very steep which puts you on top of the pedals which feels a bit weird, short back end long front centre, plus the suspension is very supple to start then ramps up (design of the linkage) to I reckon I was fighting suspension bob a bit.

Still got round with 9 gears although I didnt quite make the short rocky climb up from the carpark after the steep descent off pitch hill, I was within a bike length of the very top so it wasnt too bad.

I was a little disappointed with the performance of the coil shock on the blood, it is an improvement over the air shock but I think it works better on the Five, the suspension isnt progressive on that bike so maybe suits a linear shock better.

Drops were ok i guess, bit of fun nothing too taxing. Jimmy had no problems, pretty much fearless as ever on that hard tail. When he finally does get a five I reckon he will be unstoppable.

The Urge Enduro-matic is a brilliant trail lid, better than anything else I have used so far. Its very light but doesnt feel flimsy, or cheap. The best thing about them is that they never get soaked with sweat. The internal padding pokes down below the front of the helmet, this obviously keeps it in the wind which keeps it dry. My old xc lids used to drip with sweat, this is totally dry, even after grinding the blood up the fire road from pitch hill carpark (was a bit of an effort but still got up with just the 9 speed)

Downer of the day was when I got home and had to hack saw the cranks off my bike!! Bloody Race Face, that centre bolt is made of cheese, I have already gone through 2 of them, but this one just rounded off and that was it. Luckily I had a spare brand new set of Race Face evolve XC cranks, not great but they will do.

On the up side there was loads of girls riding surrey today, having something to focus the mind makes the climbs a lot easier!
