You need to tread carefully when choosing bike tyres. Bike tyres can mean the difference between a comfy and fast, spin or a slow, puncture-riddled ride from hell! Alex takes a deep dive into tyre tech, covering the differences between summer tyres, all-condition tyres and winter tyres.
Is expensive bike tech to blame for falling participation numbers in the sport of cycling? Alex and Ollie discuss how rising costs are killing the sport we love. There’s also news that Decathlon are joining the WorldTour peloton, increased UCI kit fines and the number plates on bikes debate rears its ugly head once again.
Slamming stems or spacing them to fit? Riding Zwift on maximum difficulty because the power feels all off? Is there a way to put pressure sensors into a shoe insole? How many watts does a ticking disc brake rotor actually take away? Numb feet after switching to cleats! All this and more are answered in this week's GCN Tech Clinic.
The optimum gear choice all comes down to the rider. You might find yourself wanting to change the gear ratios on your bike. In this video, Alex talks you through the process and all the pitfalls to look out for.
