You probably need a distraction right about now, so here’s a quick selection of an alternative reality. Imagine it – you have perfect control of your bike, in all conditions.

Aneela’s Christmas Tale
Taking a different pace, how about a nice relaxing build video? Aneela McKenna takes on her first complete build project. Although she’s an experienced coached and guide, she’d never found the time before to build up a bike from scratch. But now she has.
If that build whets your appetite, don’t miss out on this build feature and video from James Vincent.
OK, it’s back to reality now… or just keep browsing our pages for lots more distractions.
