Christmas wish-list's?

Postby DanDax1990 » Wed Nov 28, 2012 21:46 pm

So what MTB products are on your wish list's?

Mine are some new shorts/3'4s - Endura Hummvees and a new wheelset.

Seeing as I am both the administrator and procurer (sp), of my wish list, I plan to be visiting the Olympic course at Hadleigh, as soon as... :wink:
Maybe buy a new MTB helmet, too...

Quite frankly a week biking in the sun sounds better at the moment :lol: 8)

^erm - I ve tried things like that. To be honest, I'd give them a miss, either get some different shoes a bit larger (so if you have a set of race shoes, get some 5.10's or similar) or just a really cheap set of shoes and wear them with some waterproof socks.

Whatever you do, you need to make sure you wear trousers/tights over the top of the ankle or else theyll just leak that way

I'm after the warmth not warterproofness tbh. Apparently they're pretty good from everything I've read and lots swear by them.

I know what you mean, I ve had two sets as they ve always ripped - to be honest, if you can't keep your feet dry they ll be cold...I'm not going to buy them again, I'm thinking of a set of those Mavid Alpine XL's and some seal skins

Obviously this is all my opinion tho. They are very good for CX or on the road where things get less wet.

As a counter to that I've got some Specialized Defrosters and they're excellent. Yeah, my feet can still get a bit wet if it's really grim, but they stay warm because they're protected from the wind and the water doesn't flow through, taking the heat with it. It stays trapped in the shoe and warms up. Proper winter boots and Woolly Boolly merino socks will keep your feet warm through almost anything.

Somehow I've not really got anything on my wishlist, there are things that I'd happily have if they were bought for me, but nothing that I've specifically seen and thought "I need/want that".

You'll have a great time, Notax...I rode with them this year. Amazing scenery, great trails and Doug was a fantastic guide.

I've had a pair for two years but use them on the road for commuting in the winter as have gone back to flats offroad. As DD says they're not waterproof (what is?) but they are warm. Not had any issues with ripping, I'd say the quality is very good. Mine look like the picture but kind of mud coloured 8)
