  • The @pnwcomponents Loam lever and Rainer dropper post is the goldilocks of set ups. With buttery smooth motion and an incredibly light lever action, this is a premium grade system that won’t blow your budget. 😊 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • We’ve been testing the new Seral, Savu and Kitsuma packs from @ospreyaustralia. All three packs offer something different and are aimed at day rides where you can carry the bare minimum such as the Kitsuma, or pack a little more with the Seral and Savu. The Kitsuma and the Seral use a bladder system. The Savu is a lumbar pack that has been designed to carry two bottles (no bladder). Whichever style of pack or riding you do, there’s now a great range to choose from. It’s good to see Osprey focusing on more mtb specific designs and what riders are looking for. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
