Welcome to the GCN Tech Show - this week we look at products that could be banned due to a revised UCI regulation, we look into carbon filament winding, plus your upgrades, bike of the week and the bike vault. Plus, this week the buzzer is back - possibly for one week only!

Equipment being used must be publicly available and advertised with pricing and delivered within 120 days of placing your order. No pressure on the brands then! Last week we asked what had happened to graphene, and you got involved in the comments! We take a look through the best responses we had there... Hunt has a new carbon spoked wheelset that hits the scales at just 1290g a pair! While the low weight and carbon spokes are exciting what is really cool here is the manufacturing process of the rim. Hunt is using a process called filament winding. This has been around a while, other wheel brands are starting to use it too and it has big implications for carbon wheels. Traditionally carbon wheels have been made by laying up pre-preg carbon by hand around formers and placing it into moulds - similar to the process we showed for frames in the look factory video.
