Published on March 8th 2018


We're back for the GCN Tech Show, and we've got a big discussion this week that we'd love to know your opinion on. What is the greatest cycling tech innovation ever?

The GCN Shop:

Fairwheel Bikes finally put to rest the idea that disc brakes make a bike too heavy with the lightest ever disc brake bike, at just over 5kg!!

We've also got a new jacket from Assos, a bunch of gravel bike handlebars, and Jonny Tech has even found his alarm for the Bike Vault!

Don't forget to let us know which products you want to be included in the hall of fame in the comments down below 👇
