    No salary guides? Paying in free kit I guess.

    I always wonder what qualifies people to write reviews on anything, because everybody is different, it’s a massive grey area I think.

    You always want to read reviews on new bikes or gear but I always end up thinking “would I find it comfortable/fast/practical?”, this is especially the case with saddle reviews, one of the most pointless things ever.

  • Key requirement: Only interested in sportives.
