    Sorry for turning this into a facebook "what shoe" thread temporarily.

    OK, good to know - thanks. I like mudclaws. But after about 20 outings, the ones without graphene are more Pikachu than Wolverine .

    Appropos de rien I have ridden 3000 miles on my graphene tyres (Vittoria Terreno Zero Graphene 2.0) without a pucture and if a year ago my dealer had asked me how much I would pay for that comfort I think I would have said it was worth a lot not to have to change a tube in the wilds of... well Horton for example.

    And if he had said "and what about beating Ian Holmes on a descent..?

    Ooh, I went out on proper hills today, western Beacons. Lovely day and clocked aprox 13 miles and 4100 ft in 3.20.
    Nearly did for me, forgotten how hard hills are, when one is old 🙁.

    Well I never used any other fell shoe after INOV-8 came to the market - however long they lasted - because I felt I could race down any mountain side in them faster with greater self-belief.

    But it's all context. Campagnolo has just released their Bora Ultra WTO wheelset: 2810 a pair - and that doesn't include any tyres - but they would be sure to make me ride faster (if I cared).

    My latest pair of terra ultras are nearly done, which is almost perfect timing, and I’m just waiting to get back properly from the injury bench before I buy a pair of the new trailfly G300’s. On average I get a good 400 to 500 miles of hard running out of any pair of inov8’s and I also manage to double up on my terra ultras as leisure/man about town shoes and the gym (when they’re clean enough).

    I don’t understand people complaining about the value of inov8s - I’m guessing it’s mainly from runners that have more than two pairs of shoes on the go, thereby using any one pair less often and maybe suffering from the shoes gradually falling apart on the shoe stand (over drying out?) rather than by use?
    Like I say they are too expensive, given my average mileage that would equate to around 34 a week therefore I will continue buying whatever shoe (usually last years model) I can buy at a reasonable price and wear them to destruction and replace them with another low cost shoe, that way it costs me around a tenner a week. Works for me I have to admit though I do have a penchant for HANWAG (expensive but long lived, and not at all fashionable ) trail shoes and keep a pair for multiday outings carrying a sac.

    But as with all kit it is subjective and the individual has to use what suits them

    12.49 miles, 3,286 feet, 3 hours 20 minutes: Fairfield Horseshoe c/w. Sunny and warm, a few clouds, no wind. Terrain dry and firm. Quite a few on the fell, and town is busy.

    13.03 miles, 4,850 feet, 3 hours 53 minutes: Red Screes via Roundhill Farm and Wansfell Pike both ways. Sunny, not too hot, a nice cool breeze at times. Lots of "halfway resting" going on on both fells. Not that busy, but I did not go through town.

    With respect to my new shoes, in them I have found myself running sections that I normally walk. I thought I walked because I was knackered, but maybe my feet were starting to get a bit tender. Nick Chater, psychologist, has written a brilliant book called "The Mind is Flat" - we can only guess at our own motives, just like we can only guess at the motivation of others. I think the Trailflys, at least in part, work this way for me.

    This time next week MikeT I'll be embarking on first proper run out as a Cumbrian reisdent (or perhaps more properly, a resident of Cumbria). Patterdale likely to be the location for such an auspicious occasion.

    I think you may well find the indigenous folk will see you as a resident offcomer to Cumbria.

    All the best Travs I hope it all goes well for you.
