ed’s letter

Can we go home yet?’ That was the constant refrain from my two daughters as they huddled beneath a single umbrella on a roadside in Harrogate at the end of September. Neither are cycling fans, but I had persuaded them to accompany me to watch the Road Race World Championships with the promise that it would be similar to the time we visited Yorkshire to see the Tour de France in 2014. Back then, we lounged in the sunshine, chatting with others in the crowd as we awaited the peloton. The kids gorged on ice cream and the adults sipped on cold beers while we watched the action on a big screen and topped up our tan lines. This year’s Worlds was nothing like that. The grassy verges of Harrogate had been…

big softy

Having been making titanium frames in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, since 1981, Moots can lay claim to being one of the most experienced fabricators of gravel bikes in the world. ‘Making bikes to handle the type of riding now classed as “gravel” is what we’ve been doing in one form or another since we were founded,’ says product developer Nate Bradley. ‘It was driven out of necessity because Steamboat Springs is very rural. There’s one big road east to west and one north to south. Then there’s this spider’s web of hardpack that connects everywhere around town to everywhere else. These are the roads we ride on because there’s little traffic and they’re technically more engaging, so we’ve always built bikes best suited to that style of riding.’ Given that the industry has…

castelli gabba ros jersey

£170, saddleback.co.uk Castelli’s Gabba celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. That’s an impressive milestone for an item of clothing, but the Gabba hasn’t got to this grand old age without good reason. The race-fit, lightly insulated, weather-resistant jersey leapt to prominence after seemingly every pro used one at a particularly soggy Milan San-Remo in 2013 (with the Castelli logos blacked out to spare the blushes of rival team sponsors). These days, no clothing brand’s collection is complete without a Gabba equivalent. This newest revision is the Gabba’s fourth and sees it gain an ‘RoS’ label. Richard Mardle, Castelli brand director at its UK distributor Saddleback, explains, ‘A garment with the RoS name – “Rain or Shine” – means the rider only has to concern themselves with dressing to temperature, because the kit…

elite nero smart rollers

£749.99, madison.co.uk Traditionally rollers were more than just a means to train indoors – they were a tool for improving pedalling technique. Only riders with souplesse could stay upright and ride smoothly (if you want a masterclass, watch Eddy Merckx train on his rollers in the film La Course en Tete). The virtues of honing an efficient pedalling stroke are just as relevant today, but the difference now is Elite’s latest Nero Smart rollers can do a lot more besides. Being ‘smart’ means the Nero rollers can pair with third-party training platforms such as Zwift, enabling the magnetic variable resistance to adjust automatically according to the in-game terrain or any pre-planned workouts. Nero can simulate gradients up to 6% and offers up to 1,350 watts of resistance, and thanks to its ‘floating’ rollers…

fizik argo r1 saddle

£184.99, extrauk.co.uk Evidence is growing to support the anatomical benefits of snub-nosed saddles, so it was always a question of when, rather than if, Fizik would produce its own version. The Italian brand is quick to point out that it hasn’t just chopped the front off an Arione or Antares, though. ‘The Argo is totally different in design,’ Fizik says. ‘Our traditional saddles encourage riders to shift their position frequently. Argo puts the rider in a more planted position, allowing them to sit further forward without placing undue pressure on sensitive tissues.’…
