My kit picks for 2020: tech writer Stefan Abram

My last 12 months in cycling products – bookended by mudguards (!)

Having only recently joined the Cycling Weekly team, I haven’t yet had the pleasure of a full 12 months to review kit and pick out some favourites. Instead, all the items here I’ve bought with my own money, after a combination of extensive (perhaps excessive) research and much trial and error.

Over the past year, these products have genuinely impressed me with their quality, function, and value. I can whole-heartedly recommend them.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
