What is it about the combination of cycling and Italy that seems to create such emotion? Whether it’s cycling events such as the Giro d’Italia or L’Eroica, or legendary riders such as Fausto Coppi right up to today’s hero Vincenzo Nibali, a little bit of Italian influence can turn anything pedal-powered into something magical. Cycle […]

When I was asked to shoot a couple of lifestyle images for the brand new FWE clothing range, I jumped at the chance; not just because I actually really love my job, but because it gave me the opportunity to try out some brand new kit, rope in my girlfriend Danni (who’s a dab hand with […]

The next few sentences are likely to sound really corny to anyone who doesn’t believe in love at first sight and possibly even to those who do. Let’s face it, even I was a cynic before this particular day. It was August last year, when my team and I paid a visit to the world’s biggest bicycle trade show, […]

With the news of UCI finally introducing disc brakes for road racing from 2017, the time feels right to be joining the debate and to share my personal experience based on 10,000 km on Shimano’s platform and almost ten months of day to day use.   Many manufacturers (and hence our customers) have long been using cable-operated disc brakes on their road or […]

The former goes back to the hard-wearing material, which began as (and to some extent still is) a hand-woven cloth, having emerged in Scotland as a way for the farmers to cope with the cold and damp weather and later […]

One of your greatest enemies when you are riding your bike is your head. We don’t mean this metaphorically – your head accounts for a huge amount of the frontal area of a rider’s profile, and thus accounts for much of the majority of aerodynamic drag created.
