New, affordable mountain bikes from Ibis and Liv, a GX Eagle upgrade kit that makes it as light as XO1, Strava updates (and apologies), Zwift’s killer bundle deal with Stages Cycling, a special Helm fork finish, Trek’s bargain commuter bike, and three very stylish new shoes for road, gravel, and, um, hike-a-bikes? All that and more in this week’s roundup!
Chris King offers up a stealth headset option for modern cockpits, Giro goes light and compact with new Aries, a couple of interesting all-purpose e-bikes, new power meter options, fresh beer, and more!
Two gorgeous new road bikes, a $1500 handlebar with Apple Car Play, a wobble-saving headset, a big acquisition, MTB power meter pedals, Spot’s updated short travel slayer, and other clever new products!
A new Fox Active Valve electronic suspension control system could introduce Radar, wireless sensors in the wheels and cockpit, cadence sensors, and even bike-to-bike communication!
New training & recovery tech for cyclists (including a fast e-cargo bike) from CES, some wild derailleur patents, a retro-modern derailleur, MTB trail & gravel racing news, and other oddities kick off the new year.
This week’s a little light on new products, but there’s a few really interesting new upgrades from Vertical and Cycling Ceramic worth a look. Plus dual-sided Stages PMs for Dura-Ace, the 2023 UCI schedule, and a lightweight Scott road/gravel e-bike. Plus the best MTB videos from December to get us pumped to ride!
This week there are killer new bikes from Colnago, Battaglin, Wilier, and Wilde, plus a new Scott Scale with some fascinating weight-saving tricks. I also found a few really cool items (one’s pretty weird), some big news from EWS, and DJI’s new Mini 3 stays small enough for a jersey pocket, but just keeps getting better.
This week we have some odd items, from a retro GT cargo bike concept to bleeding edge new aero bikes and a list of the new UCI rules that allow them, plus an updated Look all-road bike, Giant enduro bike, and a gorgeous Kafka-esque art bike from Festka. Zwift updates and Strava recaps, too, plus tons more fun little things!
