Specialized Dry-Tech mudguards/fenders review
Specialized’s Dry-Tech mudguards/fenders are made from aluminium and are 51mm wide to cover tyres of widths up to 45mm. They can be fitted conventionally, with the steel stays bolted to the outside of your bike’s dropouts, or via Specialized’s ‘Plug + Play’ system, where the stays sit in ports built into the frame and fork. Best mudguards/fenders: a buyer's guide SKS Stingray mudguards review Plug + Play fitting requires 2.5, 3 and 4mm hex keys, a spanner, torque wrench and possibly a drill or hacksaw. These are fairly heavyweight, sturdy mudguards and their wide body ensures excellent rigidity. There are three mounting points for the front mudguard (one at the fork crown and two by the dropouts) and four on the rear (at the seatstay bridge, behind the bottom bracket and at the dropouts) and this arrangement meant that no matter where or how fast I rode the Dry-Tech mudguards ...
Canyon Endurace CF SL Disc 8.0 Pro review
The Canyon Endurace CF SL Disc 8.0 Pro was reviewed in issue 349 of Cycling Plus magazine in the feature Old v New and contained an incorrect rating of 3.5 stars.

Canyon's SL Disc 8.0 Pro is one of the most wallet-friendly entries into the world of 11-speed Campagnolo Potenza, complete with the Italian company’s hydraulic disc brakes.

Defending champion Wellens returns to Ruta del Sol
Lotto Soudal 's Tim Wellens returns to the Ruta del Sol on Wednesday as the defending champion, but having only recently recovered from illness, the Belgian has humbly said that taking the overall title is "less of a goal", and that the Spanish stage race will allow him to get back into a racing rhythm ahead of the spring Classics. Wellens has already tasted victory this season, at the Trofeo Serra de Tramuntana – part of the Challenge Mallorca series – in early February, but was hit soon afterwards with a viral infection, which has kept him out of competition since. "I'm fully recovered, but the illness has taken a bit longer than expected, and I could only resume training after a week of complete rest," Wellens said on the Lotto Soudal website. "I'll start the Ruta del Sol in good shape, but I'll certainly feel that week without training," ...
Bardet to begin season at Tour du Haut Var
AG2R La Mondiale 's Romain Bardet will set his season in motion at the three-day Tour du Haut Var, which begins in Vence, near Nice, in southern France, on Friday. Bardet brought the curtain down on his 2018 season when he was a non-finisher at Il Lombardia in mid-October, and so is now champing at the bit to get racing again after four months away from competition. "I'm happy to get back to racing. Since turning professional in 2012, I've never started a season so late," Bardet said on his team's website. "It gave me the opportunity to indulge in some other sports and lay a solid foundation of preparation," he said, "and I'll be using these races in February as a way to prepare for my first UCI WorldTour goals that come in March. But it's a real pleasure to start racing in France, especially when it's a race ...

100% Accuri Forecast goggles review
With tear-offs banned at many riding venues, goggles with a roll-off strip of transparent film across the lens provide a better-performing and more environmentally-friendly alternative. What to wear mountain biking 6 of the best goggles for mountain biking The Forecasts use the same frame and strap as 100%’s excellent Accuri goggles, but have a modified lens, which allows the roll-off system to be screwed into each side. This means that if you want to use the goggles in summer, all you have to do is switch the lens to a regular one (£10.99). The roll of film sits on the left side of the lens and you simply pull on the rubberised drawstring toggle to pull a fresh strip across, while the soiled roll gathers on the right-hand side. You get two refills included, and the canister covers clip on and off easily to fit them. My two most common ...
