Giant Contend AR 1 2020 review: Fresh and affordable all-road

Giant Contend AR 1 2020 all-rounder road bike review

If the lines between road and gravel bikes were already blurry, then the way things are trending is likely to confuse you even further. All-road bikes are relatively new and aim to do everything a good endurance-style road bike does, albeit with a pinch of additional versatility. As the name suggests, they’re designed to handle … The post Giant Contend AR 1 2020 review: Fresh and affordable all-road appeared first on CyclingTips .

Yuba Electric Supermarche e-cargo bike review: The smile machine

At nearly 50kg all in, the Yuba Electric Supermarche is undoubtedly the heaviest rig ever tested on CyclingTips. However, it’s also the most useful bike we’ve ever tested, and despite its obvious lack of “performance features”, it’s arguably the type of bike that can have the biggest effect on how much time you spend in … The post Yuba Electric Supermarche e-cargo bike review: The smile machine appeared first on CyclingTips .

Bikes of the Bunch: No.22 Aurora titanium all-road bike

We all have missed opportunities and regrets from our youth. It might be a lost love, something we wish we’d done, words we wish we’d said (or hadn’t said), a potential purchase we prudently walked away from but forever regretted not buying. Far fewer of us, however, are able to properly rectify those situations later … The post Bikes of the Bunch: No.22 Aurora titanium all-road bike appeared first on CyclingTips .

Mathieu van der Poel's World Championships Canyon Aeroad looks ready to win

Peter Stuart 27 Sep 2019 Van der Poel's Canyon Aeroad sports disc brakes and a 30-tooth rear sprocket, and could well help him win the Worlds Mathieu van der Poel has seemed unstoppable this season after dominant performances at the Tour of Britain, Amstel Gold Race and Dwars door Vlaanderen, and he's proved far and away the bookie's favourite for this weekend's World Championships Road Race. His bike also fits the bill. Riding for Canyon-sponsored UCI Continental team Corendon-Circus, it's no surpise to see the dutchan riding a Canyon, however the model and spec are a little intriguing. Van der Poel has sided for the aerodynamically focussed Canyon Aeroad CF SLX over the lightweight Canyon Ultimate, and even gone for a disc-brake equipped spec, suggesting he is favouring stopping power and all-out speed over excess grams when climbing.

Check out the fastest bikes from the World Championships time trial

Peter Stuart 26 Sep 2019 Rohan Dennis's mysterious unmarked bike, Evenepoel's slick S-Works Shiv and Dowsett's highly tuned Canyon were rapid machines The Individual Time Trial at the World Championships in Harrogate was one of the most eventful of recent years, with a resilient Rohan Dennis winning by 70 seconds to make amends for a chaotic season, but perhaps the unmarked bike he rode stole the show. First off, however, we were captivated by Remco Evenepoel's stunning S-Works Shiv TT, a brand new frame that first broke cover at the Tour de France and sports a set of disc brakes and an intriguing new aero design. Image 7 of 44 Image 7 of 44 Belgian 19-year old Evenepoel, who finished second, behind Dennis, had a fetching custom paint scheme on Shiv, showcasing the stars of the EU flag to commemorate his victory at the European Championships last month.
