    Regardless of where you stand on the whole divine right to rule over a nation of subjects whilst wearing a really heavy bling-bling hat, we can all agree that an extra Bank Holiday is nothing to be sniffed at.

    Well, there’s  a thing. 2 e-bikes that aren’t total goppers. Who’d have thought it

    The Marins look better in real life too. Got a purposeful, slightly industrial , look about them imo

    Do the latest and greatest stoppers from the house of Sram still have plastic pistons in the levers which expand in hot weather, get stuck and give you flappy lever blades?

    The think SRAM fixed that years ago, didn’t they?

    I am willing to take velocios word for the fact that their jersey is cooler than wearing nothing. There is no need for Chipps to test this.

    My current model Code RSC’s have a plastic plunger in the lever. With this weather I can’t tell if it’s going to be a problem but our last trip to Europe was coloured by the taint of sticky Sram levers.

    Just hideous, No, not Chipps in lycra but that Marin, the toptube and colour is nauseating, total Ew- bike,  the Levo sl is an absolute stunner in comparison.

    I’d take Chipps in lycra over that Marin any day of the week. Not a good looking bike IMO. But that Levo has me admiring for the first time ever that I honestly like the look of an e-bike.

    Still gonna have to get divorced to be able to buy one.

    I think that Chipps needs his wisteria pruning..

    Would Chipps in Lycra cost less than £13,000?

    I like the look of the Marin, just not a fan of the colour. There other bikes this year also have, er, odd colour choices – but not as bad as specialized bikes that aren’t black.

    Do these meet STW standards of appropriateness?

    Yes.

    Have I got this right… you shove an extremely expensive large headed drawing pin in your arm and then go riding ???

    I’m OOT.

    I’ve been doing it for the past 7 years, it’s fine.

    I know its an S-Works model, probably has top the range everything, it’s an outlier on the bike price graph, the manufacturer only gives you the best they have to test and its like comparing Fords with Ferraris, but £13k really! STW keeps banging on about inclusivity, but this is about as exclusive as MTB’ing gets. How about some real world bikes, the real world being somewhere where other 95+% of us have to live.

    How do you propose they get these cheap(er) models, when the manufacturer will only send the top of the range one?

    Pro tip, the mega money bling stuff isn’t, functionally, all that different from the more sensible stuff. Only shinier.
