If worse comes to worse and you loose your drive chain, chainless is not a problem but just in case pack an extra chain, rear derailleur hanger, rear derailleur, spare gear cable and bring some dry chain lube.
MTB hire Malaga
If you are only coming for a few days or a long weekend, you may wish to consider hiring a bike from us. We have a limited supply of different makes and models, specs vary depending on sizes/ models. All are equipped with short stems, wide bars, big brakes and tyres. Please note, hire bikes do not come with pedals.
It is however highly recommended that you come with your own rig.
Please email or call us for details on 0034660623305 or send us a message.
YOUR BIKE SPECIFICATION
You must have a full suspension bike of minimum 140/50mm travel. Also make sure you have got minimum 180mm disc rotors to prevent brake fade on the some of the longer descents. Please see the inter-active graphic bike set-up below, click on the circles for more information.
It is ESSENTIAL that you have rugged tubeless tyres with rim protection. In our experience tubeless tyres can puncture on the bead where it meets the rim, thus not only does a rim protection system help prevent this, but it helps protect your rims from hard impacts and allows you to run lower tyre pressures if you wish.
We recommend bringing a selection of spares specific for your bike such as a mech hanger, tubeless fluid and perhaps some spokes.
A bike of minimum 5" of travel front and rear is required.
Flat pedals or SPD type are fine. If you are just getting your head around SPDs do not bring them as they will distract you from concentrating on the trail while you try to clip in.
BIG disc brakes, obvious but you´d be surprised how may people come under-braked!
A bike with a minimum of 5" of travel front and rear is required.
An extra set of organic pads.
Dual ply/ tubeless tyres - the rocks here will tear even the thickest rubber apart. A few inner tubes would be a good idea also but there is a bike shop 2 mins riding distance if you are pressed for weight.
Hydration pack, fullface helmet, minimum knee/ shin armour, sun glasses, gloves, suncream, small first aid kit, pump, multi-tools etc. These you can leave in the shuttle vehicle so no need to ride with them. Each van also has a large tool box and track pump.
