Most loved products in cycling - Dave Rome 2019

Gosh, has it really been a year since I last wrote one of these? As expected, 2019 was the year of disc-equipped racing bikes, gravel bikes that blur the line with what an MTB does better, and the if-it-doesn’t-have-a-motor-or-connect-to-a-TV-it’s-dirt movement.
