KOM Cycling RPV2 Full Motion Rocker Plate

I’m not entirely sold on the necessity of forward/back motion from a rocker plate. But, there’s no denying that it couldn’t hurt, and $800 isn’t terrible… There’s a lot of neat in KOM’s approach, but mostly it demonstrates how easy it would be to retrofit an existing rocker with similar kit đŸ€”.…

Garmin fēnix 6 16.60 Firmware Released

This is a weird one… Garmin has been BETA/RC testing different revisions b/w 16.00 and the 16.60 version that was released last night for a month or two, but the change log for 16.60 (clearly a different version than the 16.30 I’ve been running for a several weeks now) is sparser than what they documented for 16.10->16.30. I had hoped the strange amount of lag in the release process was Garmin lining…

Stupid name, but that’s not a bad price for what it is…

Please tell me that I’m not the only one who almost turned this video straight off after witnessing the presenter’s [sponsored] kit choice. I did manage to silence the voice in my head that was whispering “that’s not aero” over and over again; well enough to make it all the way through anyway. And, while I’m still a bit traumatized by the experience, it was worth it because the Canyon Grizl actually…

Ribble Cycles Launches SL e Hero and Endurance AL e, you guessed it e-bikes

There is definitely something to be said for e-bikes that don’t look like obvious e-bikes. How else can you demoralize the local apex predators when coolly passing them by without breaking a sweat? Ribble Cycles has two e-bikes that do exactly that, and are relatively light (in e-bike terms) as well as being svelte. Ribble Cycles launch superlight e-bikes    Ribble’s flagship and award-winning electric carbon road bike, the Endurance SL e, is now available…

Hallelujah! ZwiftHub is Saved!

While ZwiftHub isn’t a critical cycling utility, it certainly makes tracking achievements in Zwift so much easier. Like to the point, where I actually do it, instead YOLO’g every course selection. Thankfully, it has received a stay, and will be joining the ZwiftInsider family – which totally makes sense, as does Zwift throwing them a few $ to make the transition. Toby did some very fine work with ZwiftHub, and we knew…

Roval Announces Rapide C 38

Offering a lifetime no-fault crash warranty alongside modern rim specifications (cough, including tubeless support), the Roval Rapide C 38 wheelset seems like a decent offering, especially considering the $1,000 price tag alongside its DT Swiss 370 star-ratchet freehub. They aren’t the lightest set available, but 1600g isn’t terrible for what should be a solid set of wheels. Product Specifications: 38mm External Rim 21mm Internal Rim Width Carbon Clincher Tubeless Ready New DT…

What’s the value of fancy paint and an integrated headset?

I’ve never ridden a CervĂ©lo Áspero, or any CervĂ©lo for that matter, but from what I can tell it seems like a nice gravel focused bike that would be totally fine as a road bike as long as maximizing speed on the road wasn’t a critical requirement. I also love what they’re doing with the paint, while it might not be to everyone’s taste, I think it looks fantastic and really makes…

I’m a bit lost here, someone help me out

I can only speculate around the unique challenges that MAWILs face when nature calls, but apparently Endura has the ladies covered with their new Pro SL EGM bibshort. Which alongside a chamois very thoroughly contemplated by Phil, has a “Drop Seat” feature to make it possible to use the toilet without taking off the shoulder straps, and I imagine the jersey that surrounds them. This sounds very handy for those situations, butt…

Ribble Adds Budget Trail Bikes To Their Portfolio

I must admit that I don’t know much about Ribble’s (UK based bike OEM) lineup for road, gravel, or trail. So this slipped under the radar a couple days ago when they launched. If you’re in the market for a aluminum (or aluminium) trail bike, the HT Trail AL 29 and HT AL present very good value-for-money especially considering Ribble’s unique customization options. Ribble Launches HT Trail AL 29 and HT AL…

Inside Wahoo Powerlink

Wahoo’s upcoming SPEEDPLAY based power meter was announced a couple weeks ago, but there wasn’t much detail around how it works. Fortunately, due to some improperly applied confidentiality flags in the FCC filling, Keith Wakeham was able to get the detailed photos and really dig into how they should work and where the limitations are.…
