    Hip pack suggestions

    My hip pack is a Camelbak Podium Flow - it's a hip pack/bottle holster, not a bladder. So I wear it when I need two bottles - probably only when doing 25~30+km - or a "day out" kind of ride where I might want to carry some snacks/rain jacket/camera

    You’re already going to look like a total Fred / @moorey with your underwear on the outside so may as well go deep and get the orange :D

    Best SPD "Trail" Shoe

    ^ always had good experiences with Spec road shoes. Good combination of fitted heel cup for security and wide toe box for comfort.

    Little Things You Hate

    Putting aside the "one less car" perspective which is entirely valid, the two people I know/knew who owned Vanmoofs were the least sexy people I've ever met. Both total neckbeards. Only an engineer could love a Vanmoof. If you still don't believe me, one of them also owned a Halfbike.

    COVID-19: who’s going full doomsday prep on this?

    He says "we" when he talks about NZ but he's been luxuriating in taxpayer funded hotel quarantine in BNE for the last fortnight. :rolleyes:

    Gravel bike wheel suggestions

    Novatec hubs are very reliable. Zero street cred, but they won't die. I've got a set on my commuter built to H+Son Archetypes that have done 5 years of all weather commuting and some muddy CX without skipping a beat or any sort of maintenance to speak of.
