    Been using garbaruk cassettes for about 4 years and my first one has only just worn out (only on the alloy rings). They are excellent 👌

    Isn’t the pic of the sq labs saddle the wrong one – I seem to remember all the testers didn’t get on with it?

    @monkeyboyjc – You mean the one that Benji reviewed recently? The one above is a similar saddle but different model (and, typically is currently out of stock as they had to recall the carbon rails on this model until they re-test them). I got on with it very well and it goes to show that saddles are very personal things. However, I did get my arse measured for it, so that may explain why I found it very comfortable.

    I’m a big fan of Pathfinder Pros too, I’ve got them on my commuter bike, they’ve been on for over a year and still going strong.

    Apparently they’re a favourite of many of the gravel racers too.

    I love @Amandawishart ‘s description of why she likes the Flaremax. Its the same reason I still ride a Soul, but also felt the same way after test riding a couple of FS bikes, until sitting on a Flaremax. Can’t justify buying one for all I’d ride it, but if or when I plump for a FS that’ll be it.

    Does anyone know if the alloy ring can be replaced separately? It looks bolted on with some small Torx.

    Oh and I think it’s the wrong picture for the Rab jacket, the ultra packable one doesn’t have pockets.

    @bikesandboots good spot, swapped!

    Good to know, I’ve been Garbaruk-curious for a while, but chickened out and bought SRAM last time. Will give them a go when I next need a cassette

    I did something radical and asked the people that make them 🙂 Yes, $50.

    Maybe I’d use 3 alloy rings per 2 cassettes.
