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!
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 we have a slick new Ridley allroad bike, two incredibly lightweight e-mountain bikes (that go about saving grams very differently), a rippin’ new Commençal trail bike, Ritchey celebrates 50 years, an interesting MTB saddle, wildly expensive (and radically different) TT aero bars, and more!
This week, it’s a good split between road and mountain bikes. The new Moots shows off how integrated titanium bikes can be, and BMC’s not far behind with their new e-road bike, and Esker just adds mounts for everything on their new ti gravel bike. For MTB, there’s a new Yeti XC bike and Marin trail bike, and unbelievably light grips. Plus LOTS of fun industry news in the Small Bites section!
This week we’ve got two killer new mountain bikes from Scott and Orbea, some radical gravel bikes from YT and Rodeo Labs (plus a really light gravel bar from Cadex), and a very random assortment of weirdness, reboots, artist collabs, prototypes, and e-bikes worth a look.
We have an interesting mix this week, from practical and affordable city and cargo e-bikes to a very premium, custom layup Argonaut gravel bike. Plus interesting new MTB steering tech from Canyon and Syntace, Komoot’s 3D route planning, a killer 4×4 that supports cycling, and more!
From a wild new Diverge STR gravel bike with rear suspension to another ultralight eMTB to Bianchi’s “Hyperbike” with front air scoops, there’s some interesting new bikes this week! Plus where to watch Red Bull Rampage, vanlife power tools, $2k custom road shoes, and more! (including how to get free Athletic Brewing Co. beer!)
Trek unveils two new lightweight e-Road Bikes, with a high end carbon fiber Domane+ SLR, and a way more affordable alloy version. Plus a killer new dropper post from Wolf Tooth, a super slack Marin gravel bike, winter cycling shoes, frame bags, Suunto’s new smartwatch, and more!
From aero gravel bikes to a probably-UCI-illegal handlebar, to ultra-light and ultra-fast eMTBs and motors, this week has it all. Plus a refresh from Ibis, fascinating bike security from Knog & Litelok, carbon-spoked road wheels, and super-short cranks. Definitely something for every type of cyclist this week, even cyclocrossers!
Those Blackbox SRAM Eagle Direct Mount rear derailleurs seem to be popping up on some prototype bikes, too! Plus a monstrous new Pivot Shuttle LT eMTB, colorful socks, kids mountain bikes and pedals, a cheap radar tail light, a not-cheap tool case, some important recall info, and tons of Zwift updates! Oh, and a LOT of Labor Day bike deals!!!
