  • One "Need" and one "Want"
  • As the title says, let’s be hearing the one thing you need and the one thing you want right now!

    Need – New tyre(s) – the Eskars that came on the Enduro are rubbish. And I shredded a sidewall at Brechfa the other day, so I have to replace anyway

    Want – New chainset for the Enduro. OK, so the XT one on there is all well and good, but I’d like to pimp it up a little, needlessly! Am thinking Race Face Atlas AM.
