Bianchi Reveals New Specialissima: A Less-Pretty, Disc-Only, All-Round Racer

Bianchi’s Specialissima has long stood as one for the traditionalists. The pre-existing version was an aspirationally high-end and competitively low-weight frame that offered elegant lines, round tube shapes, and not a spinning disc rotor to be seen. That all changes for 2021. Bianchi has just revealed its new 2021 Specialissima. It remains as the Italian … The post Bianchi reveals new Specialissima: a less-pretty, disc-only, all-round racer appeared first on CyclingTips .

2021 Merida Scultura Endurance 7000-E Review: A High-Value All-Roader

Endurance road bikes were once the go-to for weekend warriors looking to clock up the miles without pinning on a race number. The general design goals were to offer a more relaxed and upright geometry, a more comfortable ride, and a wider gearing range.

Close Passes Keep Happening – Here’S What We Know About Why

Supported by Any cyclist who’s spent time riding on the road will know the horror of a close pass.

Look Keo 2 Max Carbon Road Pedals Review

Marc Abbott Wednesday, July 1, 2020 - 14:27 Lightweight, user-friendly and as sportive-ready as it gets 5.0 / 5 £95 Learning to ride in clipless pedals is a cycling rite of passage, an action symptomatic of taking your riding to the next level – a level where your connection to the crank arms has become not just a necessity in order to power your bike, but a contact point you’re keen to hone in order to be a faster, more efficient rider. The Look Keo 2 Max Carbon pedals I’ve been pushing on for the last month are my most recent in a long line of pedals from the French brand, and they could be my last. For all the right reasons.

Santini Mito Spillo Short-Sleeved Jersey Review

Marc Abbott Saturday, June 13, 2020 - 08:12 Breathable aero jersey that looks as good as it performs 4.5 / 5 £110 If there’s one thing we can agree on, it’s probably that there are very, very few positives to take from being a country in lockdown (as we were for the month of April while I rode in this Santini Mito Spillo jersey). However, one bonus I’ve taken from it is the ability – nay, almost the compulsion, to ride every day. And this means I’ve finally shed my winter weight, emerging into the sunny lanes of springtime a svelte butterfly, no longer the corpulent caterpillar. Crucially, this means aero jerseys fit again! With the added bonus of raw-cut sleeves that create a bicep tanline sharper than Frankie Boyle’s Twitter account. Image 4 of 7 Image 4 of 7 Fit for purpose As one might expect of an aero ...
