    I thought I read the Gore shorts were £100+…..!! The Ion jacket looks awesome though

    No shorts are worth £100.

    I got some of those fusion 2.0 shorts in a sale for £45 and was a bit disappointed… The material and cut are good but the waist band adjusters are rubbish. No way worth £100 imo. I do love Gore stuff on the whole though

    What is the sweep on the mt zoom bar please?

    I hope kali have changed the retention system they use on their helmets. The one on mine is total crap – the dial pops open when its even slightly touched by top of camelbak. This typically happens when descending and the helmet then dips forward over my eyes! Worst helmet ever!

    You know something’s out of whack when those Gore Fusion shorts could be considered “more conservative” O_o

    Rockfield – got one and couldn’t agree more – fitted really well but can’t trust it at all. Been using it for road riding and even then it’s annoying.

    When did Nick Knowles start working at STW?

    Is it me or do the crank arms have an oblong hole that isn’t threaded for the pedals? Is there a fancy fitment plate to adjust ‘effective’ crank arm length?

    Well spotted Stupegg. I guess there must be some sort of insert you, umm, ..insert, that allows a range ie. 175, 172.5 and 170mm effective pedal arm lengths on the same crank set ?

    and yes…. Nick Knowles has let himself go !

    He is a very peculiar looking fish, and no mistake. He’d look slightly better after a shave. And maybe wearing a paper bag with two eye holes cut out..
