Dear RW Towers,

There are a lot of new clothing, shoes, gear that is not listed and we would like to be able to create new items as and when needed.

Currently there is no way we can do this and I am sure that a good number of people would love to create/ add to the list of entries and start a review of a new product.

e.g. Liverbird and her Sports Bra ,
Rodeo Clown and Vibrams Five Fingers

The list could go on and on

Thank you.

Adidas anti-blister socks too!

They're the dog's danglies!

Good point Gaz - I thought it was just me who couldn't find how to do it....

I've had a really good look around the FAQ's and Forum notes but can't find anythng that gives an indication that we the user can create/add Review Items to the list of kit only add a review

Another thing I found a bit odd....

How come we can only review UK races on here? I would've liked to have given my two pennies worth about Dublin but I quickly realised that there isn't an option to do so.

Are we pretending that people in the UK only run UK races? Dublin is closer to my house than most UK marathons! (it's just that pesky wet stuff getting in the way)

And the flipping Euro....

Did you pay €70 or €80 LB, either way along with your fare across it is an expensive event compared to say FLM/VLM wouldn't you say

€76 if I remember correctly, by the time I'd finishing paying their "fee for no reason" fees....

They don't think that's expensive in Ireland.

I paid €60 in taxis at the weekend (four journeys all less than a mile and a half)

I hope we never go into the Euro.....

I guess compared to NYC Marathon then no

Come on RW Towers, when may we see an answer to the question??

I was wondering that too......

Hi guys

Apologies for my delayed response. The Gear section is one of the parts of the site that will be getting a revamp when we roll out some new developments later in the year, but I'm afraid it still won't support the option to add reviews against products which aren't listed.

That said, we are looking to expand our listings at the same time, so perhaps you could pop all suggestions here on this thread?

Thanks

Catherine

Hi Catherine!

Yeah - I wanted to review the M&S range of sports bras because they're brilliant, but I've got the word round now by starting a thread, which seems to have struck a chord with folk because it's 100 replies long now, so clearly there is a demand for new products.

I was also wondering why we don't seem to be able to review stuff like running jackets and tights. The only things I could find in the women's gear section was t-shirts, socks and bras!

It seems that all the stuff I really rate isn't listed! I love Adidas anti blister socks too....

It does seem rather odd that we can only review t-shirts doesn't it Seren?

I never wear t-shirts as I always run in club vests.......and I want to review millions of things to take your number 1 place off you

I wish the flipping list in the gear section would be updated.
There are so many new products on the market which are not on the RW gear section.

Catherine, I understand we cannot create a review and only those from the list.
But, I would love to review a product which is not on this site. Unless RW update the
list because there are products out there which are not listed. It would be ideal if RW
created a members gear review where we can post our view on a product but is separate from
the main gear review section.

Reviewing shouldn't count for as much as it does! I've only ever reviewed nine fings anyway....
