Re: Genesis Longitude???

You’ll be putting money towards a hard-working individual who potential needs a little extra help during this C19 period. If that doesn’t justify N+1... etc :lol:

Re: Genesis Longitude???

You’ll be putting valuable money into the till of a bike shop during these desperate times :-bd If that’s not a good enough reason for n+1, then you’ll never buy it :lol:

Re: Gravel porn

Have been thinking of swapping the front ring over, it’s only got 30T and my previous bike had a 36T, so trying to weigh what’s best. Always hear comments of “ive never needed higher gears on a ride...”, so giving this setup a go first

If I was only allowed one bike, it would b...
