Published on September 17th 2020

Some riders prioritise a super lightweight set up, whilst others sacrifice a bit of weight for a more aero bicycle. But how much difference does it actually make? With only a few hundred grams between the lightest pro bikes and the heaviest, it can't matter that much...can it? This week on the GCN Tech Show, Ollie and Manon investigate.
