SKS Speedrocker mudguards review
Pete Muir Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - 11:34 Smart, effective mudguards for gravel bikes 4.0 / 5 £49.99 German company SKS is among the first to come up with a set of mudguards aimed specifically at gravel bikes. And with the Speedrocker it has done a pretty impressive job. The main issue it had to solve was how to cover wide tyres while not blocking the clearance beneath the fork crown. It has achieved this with a cunningly split front guard. Image 5 of 13 Image 5 of 13 Rather than attaching to the underside of the fork crown, the Speedrocker goes round the outside, with a pair of braces attached to the fork legs holding two separate sections of the guard. This means it is possible to have a setup with a significant gap between the tyre and the guard – if that’s how you want it – without ...

Thesis OB1 long-term review: Good performance, lots of custom options
The Thesis OB1 isn’t flashy, and the upstart brand name carries no prestige. It’s not particularly light, it definitely isn’t aero, and in fact, there’s not a ton about it on paper that will blow anyone’s doors off in general. But it’s a very good bike nonetheless, and wonderfully versatile in terms of what you … The post Thesis OB1 long-term review: Good performance, lots of custom options appeared first on CyclingTips .

Grove R.A.D gravel bike review: An Aussie all-rounder
Buying a gravel bike in 2019 is somewhat like shopping for laundry detergents: there’s way too much choice, there’s a weird amount of differentiation for what seems like a single purpose, and there’s far too much promise that the product will clean everything in its path. Taking a leap of faith into the crowded gravel … The post Grove R.A.D gravel bike review: An Aussie all-rounder appeared first on CyclingTips .

Canyon Grail AL 7.0 review
Canyon launched its carbon fibre Grail early in 2018 , a bike that divided opinion thanks to its controversial double-decker Hover bar . The new aluminium Grail ditches that unique cockpit but it's still an impressive bike.
