This week we've got Ere Research's new carbon wheels: they don't claim to be the lightest, the most aerodynamic or the cheapest – but their precise blend of those three aspects makes them really quite an interesting proposition nonetheless.

There's Brooks' new sustainability initiative, with its 'take care' guide for extending the life of its saddles, and Dyedbro's frame protection kit for keeping your bike scuff and scrape free.

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
