Welcome to the GCN Tech Show and this week we've got Jon and Ollie talking all things bike tech. We've got hour record tech, shiny wheels, a bike for auction and we ask whether tech can make for safer cycling.

The updated Giant defy is said to offer more compliance and improved ride quality. Giant claims that this makes the bars more compliant downwards, but also stiffer when pulled upwards when sprinting. While we are looking at the cockpit, we should also talk about the stem. Giant has opted for a similarly integrated stem to that found on the new propel. The design features a removable plastic cover under which the cables and hydraulic lines are housed. We are seeing more and more introductions of artificial intelligence in all forms of life. And this week, we thought we would ask can tech make cycling safer? Ideas of Bike to Car communication have been floating around for a while now. And these developments are still going on in the background. How about actually solving an issue which affects hundreds of cyclists every year, without the need for artificial intelligence and experimenting with huge budgets. Tram Tracks are especially hazardous to cyclists. The District Department of Transportation in Washington DC is said to be looking into how to make tram tracks safer following the tragic death of a cyclist.
