It's good to see a sensible bike for the winter and wet days with mudguards, but also one that looks right stripped down for the sun. Adnan in Portland has a custom Drummond Columbus tubed frame built up with Campagnolo kit. A real beauty.
Another varied collection of new equipment: The best shop chair you will ever sit on by Vyper Chair, Fulcrum E-Racing 4 wheels, Dynaplug new bar end tubeless repair kit, fizik redesigns power transfer with the Vento Stabilita Carbon shoe, Endura updated Windchill range and Campagnolo Ekar’s Rear Mech.
Officine Mattio (Mattio Workshop) is the largest Italian brand that you’ve never heard of, located in what I think is the most under-appreciated region in Italy for incredible cycling, Piemonte. Here’s the latest OM1, from the company pushing to keep cycling manufacturing INSIDE Italy.
Another packed 'Gear Break' full of newly released cycling goods: Sportful Bodyfit Pro Light jersey, Campagnolo's Ekar - The world’s lightest gravel groupset, new bikes from Look, Canyon & AURUM and new Fast shoes by Sidi.
It's Friday and time for another look at what's new on the cycling market: Pro Team Full Frame glasses by Rapha, fizik expands its Adaptive Line with two new options, Campagnolo new Shamal Carbon disk brake wheels, Specialized Sagan collection, the new KASK Mojito³ and Bernard Hinault Tour de France fanwear pack.
Time was first made famous by their clip-less pedals, but where the French company's artistry comes into its own, is their carbon frame construction. Brian in Folsom has a perfect example, his Time VXRs has that naked carbon weave with the bonded lug and tube system. Simply beautiful.
Lot's of new kit: Pirelli P ZERO™ Race tubeless road tyre, Campagnolo new cycling caps online, 100%® Speedcraft XS for smaller faces, fizik redesigned Tempo Overcurve R4 for wider feet, Lazer new Volante time trial helmet and a special bibs and saddle deal from Scicon.
