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!
Colnago // Scott // Wilde // Wilier // Battaglin // DJI & more!
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.
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.
