This week we’ve got new bikes, pros’ bikes, some new kit and a few bargains for you
More pro bike news
Afer five years riding Specialized machines, this season world time trial champion Tony Martin has switched teams to Katusha-Alpecin and bikes to Canyon. We take a look at his Speedmax CF SLX time trial bike. And we’ve got our own review of the Speedmax CF SLX – read what we think of Canyon’s slippery machine.
And more non-pro kit
Bowman Cycles has released its first stainless steel frame, which it says comes with “a contemporary take on the classic winter training frame”. And we’ve got news of B’Twin’s 2017 range which kicks off with a seven-speed £220 entry level bike.
That’s probably not a machine you’d look to upgrade with Reynolds Wheels newly updated tubeless-ready aero carbon clinchers though. We love to use and abuse tubeless tyres here at CW, so if you’re into a bit of tyre torture you’ll enjoy our newest video. Once you’ve finished being mean to your bike, you might also need our latest How To video though – this time it’s changing a press fit bottom bracket.
Bargains and summer cycling
If you’re looking forward to the return of summer riding, we’ve got news of Sealskinz’s new waterproof, windproof clothing range too. While if summer cycling means sitting on the couch watching the pros, you’ll be worried that access to Eurosport may cease for Sky viewers following a dispute over payments.
