Moda Rubato

Moda may not be the first name that comes to mind when thinking about a new bike, but to dismiss this UK brand’s machines would be a mistake, especially at the incredibly competitive £1,000 mark. Rather than go all out to make an attention-grabbing specification in the traditional sense, the folk behind the brand choose a different and — in our opinion — far more sensible route.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
