Which is the best value mountain bike under 450 pounds?

'All of them because I've never seen one close to that weight.' Sorry I meant in money (£) not weight - I didn't make it clear. Also I have seen the Carrera Kraken since. Would you recommend this bike. It gets good reviews and seems to be well speced for the price but I don't know whether I would be better off going for a more well known brand. Thanks

Did this years National Downhill Mountainbike Championships take place?

It doesn't appear to have been held yet. Wikipedia only has results up to (and including) last year. I would think, given the speed at which Wikipedia gets updated, that this years results will appear there as soon as they're known - See related link.

What are some disadvantages of bike riding?

You don't get much of an upper body workout during road riding. Using the wrong technique and/or a poorly fitted bike can trash your knees. The hunched-forward position can cause pains in neck, shoulder, hands and the lower back. Depending on riding style and choice of surface there is a greater or smaller risk of falls. If you're riding in traffic you might become the target for road rage or sheer clumsiness. You can get a flat tire. It makes you sweat; especially bad if biking to social event, work, school, etc.

Most bikes don't have a roof in case of rain.

You can't bring your family with you, unless they have bikes of their own.

Helmet and/or wind will oftentimes mess up a good hairdo. You can crash and get hurt/dead.

What is the average bicycle assembly labor rate for companies like Trek or Specialized?

I dont know about bike assembly labor rates, but I just got my Gary Fisher Marlin MTB from the Trek store in Ventura, CA for a front wheel replacement. The hourly labor rate was only $5. The rate for assembly is probably a bit more I would guess.

What inner tube size do in need to buy?

it says on my tyre 54 - 559 (26 x 2.1) HS 367 ,, can anyone help

A bicycle (inner) tube is just an air bladder. Within reason, it'll simply expand to fit whatever space it's in which is why tubes will usually be listed to cover several sizes of tyre. For a 26x 2.1 tyre you can use any 26" tube between 1.5-2.2 in width. I'd aim for a 2.0 or maybe a tad thinner. It'll work just as good and be slightly easier to fit.

What is the difference between all mountain and cross country mountain bikes?

An AM bike is basically a cross between a XC and a DH MTB. Usually full suspension and long enough travel to take some fairly serious drops and jumps, but still light enough and with a gear ratio and a ride position that'll make it somewhat useful on the flat and during climbs. An AM bike is the best bike if you want to ride to the top, and do a decent descent. An XC bike will climb far better, but would suffer on the way down. The DH bike would be a pain to climb with, but be the best for the run down.

What is the ideal saddle angle for long distance riding on a bicycle?

One that doesn't cause numbness. Horizontal is the general recommendation, although some favors a little nose down. A rare minority prefers nose up.

How do cyclists pee while they're riding?

Men can do it with a little practice. Professional bicycle racers are pretty much forced into learning this if they want to stay with the pack through 6 hours of racing. If gifted with a male anatonmy it is possible to maintain your speed when traveling downhill or with a push from behind. It is a simple as a point and squirt, although you do need to learn to relax a little. (Doing it at high speed or in the wind certainly can lead to splashing.)

I have never seen this attempted by a female. The most obvious option is to soaking yourself and hoping the wetness isn't too obvious. Although I have seen entire packs of female racers call a temporary truce to allow for a pit stop.

The first paragraph is correct, however in a long stage, there are times where the rider will stop, clip out of one pedal, and lean over to void.

This is usually not a problem in professional racing--attacking a rider that is 'relieving him or herself' is considering unsportsmanlike and can lead to hostility towards the attacker.

Sometimes if the race is at quite a slow pace riders stop and get off there bikes and then catch back up.

In 24-hour solo mountain bike races, riders often "just go" while riding.
