    Benji’s bike: Santa Cruz Heckler (or was it a Superlight?) with pace forks?

    Frame looks like an old Santa Cruz Heckler, no idea on the forks… Manitou?

    Santa Cruz Heckler, maybe a Pace fork?

    Changed my mind – the writing on the top tube is longer, so Superlight with either Pace or even a Manitou on there?

    Merida 120 – looks like they bought up the leftover NP Reactor stock!

    Fox Union – how much?!

    Vans x YT – there’s no stock left!

    Evening rides – HELL. YES.

    I’m thinking heckler (coil shock?) and some RC36 pace forks. probably around 1999?

    I love my Fox Union shoes but I’ll be sticking with laces at half the price thank you.

    Those YT shoes look like the Vans BMX models I’m wearing right now and they’re crap for riding in. Way too soft and flexible. I’ve definitely been spoiled by proper riding shoes.

    What in particular shocks you Ton?

    The BOA shoes are expensive, for sure, you can get a pair of snowboard boots with BOA on for that price. But £69 for a packable jacket? That’s a billy-bargain. £99 for a pair of Vans is not insane. Ohlins forks at £1.2k  Yes that’s a lot but high end RS triple clamp forks were that price 20 years ago. £3k for that Merida is not terrible either. Carbon wheelset for 1.2k is a lot more than I’d spend on wheels but for carbon?

    Was thinking SC Tazmon, but that’s probably too early so heckler. RC32 fork?

    I wish this headset cable routing trend would FRO, if it becomes standard with all brands I’m literally gonna tape and zip tie my cables to the frame externally in protest.

    The logos on the back of those vans look a bit like the 44 on the back of the Adidas Germany football shirt that they had to redesign. Apparently, the shoes have sold very quickly. I wonder if it’s really cyclists that are buying them.

    Feature on lightening up vs. building light sounds interesting.

    Wheels look tidy, perfect 2nd wheelset for local gnar lite.

    I see Stilt do a set for £800, bit heavier and worse hubs though. But presumably you’ve bought these for one of you to keep. I’m surprised no big wheel shop or distributor could sort something out for you free though.
