Previously Editor here at, Rachael is happiest on two wheels. Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. In the past Rachael has written 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, she has been equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories or doing the site admin. When she's not busy with all the above she's roasting coffee or coaching mountain biking in the Forest of Dean.

I was really happy to find this review because I'm considering this bike but I'm slighlty confused. Don't get me wrong, but isn't "long stem" issue related to the fact that you've used a bike setup for men? Women specific version of this bike seems to have shorter stem so this issue looks to be irrelevant for main focus group of the riders and this shouldn't be mentioned in the review? Also as far as I know Canyon allows you to switch stem size within 30 days of the purchase which could make sense to mention.
