Slightly more like a conventional towel fabric, the Microfibre Trek towel maintains the compact, highly absorbent features of the Soft Fibre but has a slightly fluffier feel.

 Continental SportContact City MTB Wire Bead Tyre
Continental SportContact City MTB Wire Bead Tyre
The Sport Contact has a rolling resistance comparable to some of our road bike tyres, it's THAT fast! Those in a hurry will benefit from the new features which make the tyre more resistant to punctures than the old Avenue Semi Slick.

fanatik's Questions
 
Force 22 Hydraulic Disc 11-Speed Shifters combine all the great performance of mechanical 11-Speed, with the performance of a hydraulic disc braking system.
 

what do the options mean?

what does 800mm front refer to exactly? is this a left hand or right hand lever, is the brake hose length for the front or rear, is the shifter for the front or rear derailleur? its not very clear. what about the other options listed? i'm after a right hand shifter that does the front brake and rear derailleur, which option is correct?

 Salomon XT Wings 3 Shoes - AW14
Salomon XT Wings 3 Shoes - AW14
Stability and agility come together in the iconic Salomon XT Wings 3 trainers. All-terrain running that’s now more flexible, lighter, and protective than ever before.
 

pronation control

i see these have pronation control. as someone with mild pronation would these be suitable for trail running, or should i stick with a neutral shoe? the other one i am thinking of is the xt hornet which is neutral.
i currently run on the road with saucony guide 7's.
thanks.
