Comparing The New Brooks Ghost Max Vs. Ghost 15

I’ve been not-so-patiently  waiting for the Brooks Ghost Max to be released since I first learned about them in August.  I don’t quite know why the UK seems to be the last location for the Ghost Max to be available (or why the colour options are so different to North...
