    I love the Raaw Madonna. What are you going to do with it?

    I like the sound of AXS but that Canyon still seems to have a lot of cables sticking out of it. 2 for the brakes, sure, but what are the others? Remote fork adjustment?

    Those CrankBros soles look grippy.

    perhaps £25 off the shoes and no cleats would make more sense (and be more environmentally friendly) given the reasonably large numbers of users of other brands of clipless pedal?

    I’m curious about your surprise that a tyre design still offers good grip after 20 yrs, have developments in dirt progressed markedly over that time…?

    2021 Canyon Luxs had remote lockout fork and shock for 2021 model year – my assumption would be that whilst the shifting and dropper have gone wireless, there are still has 2x cables for suspension lockouts and 2x hoses for brakes

    still running Smoke and Darts? or are you a Scratch and Sniff man?

    Made of fresh rubber and with a decent width I’m sure either would be great.

    I’m actually on the hunt for a set of Onza Octopus, pretty rare. If you know you know… Any old stock kicking around from the Mongering days Charlie?

    @thebunk I believe the extra two cables are for the fork and shock lockouts on the left handed twist grip. It’s only a matter of time before SRAM manage to integrate the AXS actuators to suspension too. It’s so effective everywhere else I can’t see why not!

    I used the twist grip lockouts at the 10@Kirroughtree race on Saturday and did lose a piece of skin to the lockout twist grip so a nice easy button to press would be a pleasant upgrade.
