I thought i should dedicate a page to the bikes and kit i use.
People often ask me about setup and bar widths and all that tech stuff that comes with a bit of experience.
I have to say i still run my bars a bit narrower than most these days, but i go on what feels right.
I always run 1x 10 gearing for simplicity and i find for what i ride it is fine. The only time i felt like i could maybe use a few lower gears was out in Spain after riding for 4+ hours and doing 2000m climbing days.
All my stuff is standard kit you can buy other than a few tasty Renthal parts that i help develop.
