Exept Allroad long-term review: Custom Italian modular monocoque
I’ve always had an appreciation for alloy or steel frames. Recently I’ve even come around on the merits of titanium after getting to play with a hand-built Caminarde gravel bike. Borrowing a Specialized Allez built with Shimano’s mid-range 105 groupset got me more excited than many of the superbikes I’ve played on in recent times. … The post Exept Allroad long-term review: Custom Italian modular monocoque appeared first on CyclingTips .

Best winter road bikes: What makes a good winter bike?
Joseph Delves 31 Oct 2019 What makes a good winter bike and what are our top favourite winter road bikes While it might seem an outrageous luxury to have a dedicated bike just for winter, if you ride a lot it can make sense. What we want in summer is different to what we want in winter, as the menu at any restaurant will tell you. Plus, a dedicated winter rig will stop your more expensive bike getting trashed courtesy of the bad weather and mucky roads. For the old-school rider, the archetypal winter training bike might still be a fixed gear with an easy-to-turn ratio and mudguards. But there’s no need to go for something quite so austere. However, there are some things we’d definitely look out for… What makes a good winter bike? Space for wide tyres and mudguards Tough tyres in a wide size and run at ...
Mason Bokeh long-term frameset review: Solid numbers, solid performance
If you care more about function than flash — and are maybe a little carbon-averse — the Mason Bokeh is a great option for a do-it-all gravel machine that won’t totally break the bank. The triple-butted aluminum frame is reasonably light, rides well enough, handles brilliantly, and incorporates all the mounts most of us will … The post Mason Bokeh long-term frameset review: Solid numbers, solid performance appeared first on CyclingTips .

Check out the 'first' sub-£1000 e-road bike
Joe Robinson 25 Oct 2019 Halfords' in-house brand Carerra launches its £999 Crossroad e-road bike Halfords' in-house bike brand Carerra has released its £999 Crossroad Electric which it believes to be the 'cheapest e-road bike in Europe'. Available to buy from Halfords and Cycle Republic, the new Carerra Crossroad Electric integrates a 310wh battery with a Suntour electric motor system into the bike's rear wheel that provides a claimed 40 miles range on one charge. Halfords will also offer a bigger 418w battery as an additional purchase if longer range is something your desire, too. The motor is engaged by a crank-based torque sensor for a more responsive feel, unlike the cadence sensors usually found in lower-priced e-bikes. For the money, you get a Crossroad aluminium frame that's fitted with a 9-speed Shimano groupset and Tektra MD-C400 mechanical disc brakes. The front rotor is also a large 180mm providing additional ...

Tektro growing more than its product line with factory expansion set for next year
TAICHUNG, Taiwan (BRAIN) — Rising e-bike demand and an emphasis on developing drivetrain systems have Tektro/TRP in need of more manufacturing space. After acquiring land next door to its Changhua, Taiwan, plant five years ago, construction has started on a sister plant that will double its size and manufacturing capabilities. "This building is four soccer fields (big)," said Dirk Belling, global marketing and brand manager, during the TAITRA factory tour Wednesday. "We'll double this by the end of 2020, so we'll have eight soccer fields." Also opening in the spring 2020 will be the Tektro Europe office near Frankfort. There is a similar office in Ogden, Utah. The brand has grown plenty since it started 10 years ago. It now has 1,300 employees globally, 570 in the Changhua factory. Belling said plans have started to add 300 new employees, with more likely added in another wave. Outlining the company's brand ...
