Rachael is happiest on two wheels, she's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories, she also coaches mountain biking and when she's not busy with all the above she's serving coffee from a horse trailer!

Hi, luckily for us Editor Jon is testing a new pair of the 661 Recon's so it will be interesting to see what he thinks once he's given them a proper going over. I don't know of anybody offering demo options but most shops should be happy for you to try before you buy, although I know walking around the shop isn't the same as grinding up a hill! There will be a 'Best of Knee Pads' feature to follow in the coming months which will involve a variety of brands and types of pads, keep an eye on the site and on Facebook Smile

 

I had an early set of 661 back that spent most of the time keeping my ankles warm and getting chewed by the chainring. I definitely need to buy some new ones but how do i know which ones will stay put and not ruck up behind my knee's. Are there any demo options Rachael? Will there be a review of the best options coming?
