Road vs Gravel vs MTB – The Year in Review
Which type of cycling is most popular? What’s the most popular bike race? Which gravel race is the favorite? Why are all the mountain bike events about the same popularity? Here’s how all the cycling disciplines and events ranked in 2022!
Happy Holidays // Cycling Ceramic // Scott // Vertical // Stages // Shredits & more!
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!
Rockshox // 3T // Look // Giant // Strava // Lamborghini & more!
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!
Ridley // Scott // Ritchey // Predator // Orbea & more!
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!
Silca // Yeti // Magura // We Are One // Berd // Polygon & more!
This week, Silca drops a massive collection of awesome (and expensive) new products, Yeti rounds out its SB mountain bike lineup, Magura speeds up its wireless dropper, WeAreOne waves hello to a wild new rim design, two unbelievably affordable bikes from 8bar and Polygon, scammer alert, Hans Rey drops a new video, and more!
Best Gravel Bike Handlebars – A Buyer’s Guide
What’s the best gravel bike handlebar? Here are eight options (five carbon, three alloy) for every type of rider and budget. These are the very best, lightest, and most comfortable gravel bars we’ve ridden, tested at races and rides around the world.
Moots // BMC // Yeti // Marin // Tacx // AMS // Esker & 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!
Alchemy Ultralight // Yeti // Wilde // Rapha // Mondraker // Cairn & more!
This week there’s some new ultralight road, gravel & mountain bikes, Yeti’s new enduro slayer, a cruiser-like bikepacking ATB, new kit, a seasonal bottom bracket flavor, plus Mondraker unveils a massive new range of, well, everything for 2023, highlighted by an alloy version of a popular trail bike, light carbon MTB wheels, hybrid smart watches, and more!
Scott // Orbea // Colnago // Cannondale // YT // Rodeo Labs & more!
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.
Argonaut // Canyon // Komoot // I9 // Wolf Tooth // Ineos // Kona & more!
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!
