Rachael Gurney's picture

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!

Photo? I had trouble figuring out how this was plumbed. A picture sure would help here.

I like the revolt range and have had one since 2015. But be warned about the Conduct brakes . They are very unreliable and can stop working properly without warning.i had a set installed on my revolt by a Giant badged shop. I came to realise that they hate them from a setup and maintenance perspective as do others who have had to service them . They will require more trips to the bike shop because they are very difficult to setup and adjust. And you will get a negative vibe when you take them in. I have had to remove them and replaced with manual discs because Said Giant shop effectively refused to sort them out ( and blamed for buying them). They reckon 2 years tops before they go wrong . Shame as the bike is great . But don't buy and bike with these on .
