    Every time a Singletrack staffer outlives pair or extra soft grips once again, we like to do a special offer

    Really?!

    I remember selling those Kirks. I won’t tell you what tests we put them through to see how tough they really were.

    Every time a Singletrack staffer outlives pair or extra soft grips, we like to do a special offer, and this time it’s a whole tenner off our awesome 1,000 piece 20th Birthday Jigsaw puzzle.

    No need to apologise. If a nameless alcoholic dies and we make a joke (and people do) nobody bats an eyelid.

    I’m surprised osprey haven’t added a special ebike battery pocket to the bag given that most of the ebike racing Tracey does needs multiple batteries to get round

    I used to work for the company that did the forming and machining of those Kirks. Sadly before my time, but they had a few quality failures kicking around.

    Now have I understood this correctly?
    The Klean Kanteen is the most expensive flask I have ever bought, and now you want me to spend a tenner on a new lid. What’s wrong with the original one?

    That Kirk was my first MTB. I loved it. I live in Edinburgh now 🤔

    Does the STW flask fit a std bottle cage?

    That Kirk looks great but from what I remember from riding one the were very ‘horizontally compliant’. Used to flex from side to side every time I pushed on the cranks.

    Am I missing something? What makes those Premax Creams women specific? I know I failed my biology o’level, but surely skin is skin no matter what gender or race you are. So the only difference I can see is marketing bullsh*t and the target audience. I think they are missing a trick, if it says “chamois cream” anyone might buy it, if is says “women specific chamois cream” that probably excludes the majority of the male half of the world’s population.

    Scott – yes, you very much are missing something. For example:

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6116811/

    If you consider the perineal area specifically, then innervation, sebum secretion distribution and rates, pH levels and infection types and rates are just a few of the substantial skin differences between men and women.

    There are substantial differences between races too, FWIW (apart from the rather obvious differences in melanin concentration, there are differences in trans-epidermal water loss, blood vessel reactivity and elasticity among others) but we’ll not get into those 🙂

    @dave bisset. I added some new caps to our latest order, so you have the option of more insulation if using it for food, or non sipping duties. Nowt wrong with the original.

    The flask is almost exactly the same diameter as a water bottle, but does not have the recessed bit that water bottle have. It might fit some bendy cages… you know the nylon ones with a rubber band.

    Well, you know that I can’t resist even gentle temptation, and I have ordered one of the new lids.
