We get to ride and review a lot of different bikes and kit, but everything we write about isn't necessarily what we would choose to ride ourselves, even if it's a great product.

Besides, we don't get to keep what we review: all the bikes we review are sent back, as is most of the equipment (sometimes clothing doesn't need to be returned for obvious reasons).
