Are you wasting your money on overpriced and overhyped cycling tech? Alex and Ollie run through the bike parts and components they think are most overrated. Of course oversized pulley wheels are on the list, but what else? There’s also some hot and spicy tyre tech from Pirelli and Hutchinson, plus the new Pinarello Dogma X and details of Shimano’s big product recall.

A classic Brompton folding bike, it serves one purpose, which is for short trips...but does it have one purpose? Can we turn our GCN Brompton into a MT-Brompton? We have no idea if it's a good idea but Alex is on a mission to find out. It's time to build!
Is your bike frame made from carbon? Carbon is used in fighter jets and space shuttles, but is it the same as the carbon in your bike? Ollie and Alex discuss how carbon bikes are made along with the new Strava update, and there are some super nice bikes in the bike vault!
Swapping spacers when swapping cassette? Disc brakes rubbing when changing wheelset? Maintaining a waxed chain over winter? How much clearance should I leave between my tyres & frame? Alex & Ollie are here to answer your latest #AskGCNTech questions!
If you have a carbon frame bike that also uses a carbon seatpost you might find you have the problem of your seatpost slipping down over time, which is very annoying and also means your seatpost will get scratched, but also messes up your riding position. So let's have a look at a few ways to fix that issue!
