In our Thule 561 Outride review in Issue 75 we explained how you have to remove the entire locking mechanism in order to fit the supplied thru-axle adaptor. That’s all fine if all you are ever going to carry on your roof is thru-axle bikes. But, if like many bike owners we know you have […]
Price: £479.99 From: Hotlines Tested: 12 months Wheelset reviews are a funny old game. You can’t really write much about their performance at first. Pretty much all non-cheap wheels these days are fine out of the box and fine for a few rides. You can weigh ‘em. You can fill a few sentences talking about […]
Matt tests a different kind of softshell jacket that’s friendly to user as well as the environment

To have a fork that is as strong as Popeye, literally bulging in the fork lowers to accommodate big bushings, while staying relatively light (2313g) is just fantastic.
