Bike Component Reviews

intro components

Schwalbe Durano DD 2016 250x300

From the major bike components of frames, forks and wheelsets through to the smallest and often unseen components such as bottom brackets, brake pads and bearings, we review as many aftermarket components, hidden or otherwise, to ensure a bike becomes much more than the sum of its shiny exterior parts.

There are the contact points too: tyres that grip the road or trail to ultimately define your ride. Saddles that cost the earth but carry you to success. Handlebar grips that you cling to for dear life, or the squidgy bar tape that helps absorb the worst of Belgian cobbles. There's no end of components designed to enhance the quality of your bike or ride experience, but give us a little time and we'll happily review all the bits that really count.
