We don’t think autumn deserves the bad reputation it has. Of course, there are some spontaneous showers and whirlwind moments when every direction benefits from a headwind – but there are also some sensational days that are not to be missed. One of the major struggles riders face on autumn is deciding what to […]

  The autumn months have a bit of a bad reputation – associated with bitter chill, downpours and tornado worthy blustery winds. Poor autumn mainly suffers because it precedes winter – one of the toughest times to ride. Few riders get excited about December (except perhaps cyclocross racers) and we tend to begrudge autumn for […]

  The weekend just gone was a pretty epic one for Great Britain’s downhill mountain biking crew. Welsh rider Manon Carpenter rode towards a Gold Medal in the UCI Downhill World Championship in Norway on Sunday, with Brits Rachel Atherton in Silver and Tahnee Seagrave in Bronze.

This year, a peloton from our buying team embarked upon the 1000km ride, and we’ll be sharing videos from their journey soon. Not with them, but travelling alongside, Pinnacle, […]

Turbo time of year has come back around. Turboing (verb): The act of attaching ones bike to a stationary unit, to pedal it inside. The ideal solution to keeping fit when the weather doesn’t permit an outdoor ride or when you want a short/hard/focused workout. For many racing cyclists turboing is a year round staple […]

  Women’s cycling is growing incredibly quickly, and there are a lot of brands out there doing their best to cater for the increasing need. We still haven’t got it spot on though, have we? As a female cyclist, I’ve had plenty of time to ponder on what’s not quite right. It’s been asked by […]

Every  month, we reward one person who reviewed their new product online with a £250 voucher. The winner for August was Paul, who told us what he thought of the Specialized Expert Road Shoe…  Paul told us…  “I was forced into buying new shoes when my old ones decided they didn’t like cycling anymore. I […]
