    This week has been about a big delivery that we’ve been awaiting. Yes, we have become a grandmother. Er, no. That’s not it. That’s not it at all.

    New issue just dropped on the doormat – Very impressed!

    My son (off ill from school) said it felt ‘premium’…

    That Last is lovely. Shame the chain stays are pretty short on the 175 size

    That helmet can’t be that lightweight, judging by the state of the cat.

    That Last seattube angle is not great and gets worse, the taller you are.

    Looking forward to this months mag and the review of those grips.

    That Last looks like a hybrid of a Saracen and a Knolly but with an attractive front triangle, subtle fish scaling on the welds caught my eye, but can’t decide if I like it or not.
    So is thirty odd quid for lock-on grips gonna be the going rate soon.

    I wonder if this is some compromise due to sharing parts across their range.

    a bit less goggley and bit more singlassesy

    ‘Singlasses’? they sound fun

    I don’t think I’d consider ditching Fidlock in favour of d-rings an upgrade/improvement. Singletrack’s recommended deal isn’t much of a bargain either…

    Just received the new issue, all I can say is – bravo. The design is outstanding, all the hard work has well and truly paid off, thank you Singletrackers!

    Love that Last, I had a Herb a while back that was bloody brilliant, you can sort of see the family resemblance but everything’s more evolved. Seat angle does look slack, though. Hope the linkage pivot location doesn’t stop it taking a long seatpost.

    “Why use anything that isn’t classic Stans No Tubes white stuff?” OKO Hifibre is cheaper, just as good at fixing punctures, but lasts far better, and is waterbased so if it’s starting to dry up you can just add a little water and wet it again. Halo is the same stuff. Literally the only downside is that you can buy Stans anywhere, but not everywhere sells OKO, and they shouldn’t be mixed. Other’n that the OKO is just better.

    Last time I went to the Falklands I took my bike and went for a ride to see the penguins. Nice day out LOL.
