    A Spring Classics Kit Guide - What to wear for foul weather cycling
    19 Mar 2019 / Tim Wiggins
    The season openers - 'The Spring Classics', are predictably unpredictable. There will be wind and rain, there will be snow and mud; then combine that with cobbles, gravel and gradients, and you'll see mechanicals, abandonments, frozen riders and beaten-up bikes. It is a challenging start to the year. After riding the Strade Bianche Grand Fondo in testing conditions this spring, Tim Wiggins outlines the kit that he recommends for wet and cold, extreme weather cycling.

    Rear derailleurs buying guide
    01 Mar 2019
    A rear derailleur (often referred to as a 'rear mech') is the mechanism that moves the chain from cog-to-cog on the cassette at the rear of the bike. The right hand gear shifter on the handlebars pulls a cable (or uses electronic signals) to move the derailleur, which in-turn moves the chain onto the appropriate cog on the cassette.

    Base layer buying guide
    28 Feb 2019
    Base layers are the base of any layering system. They are designed to sit next to the skin and wick moisture away from your body. They do this by absorbing moisture (sweat) from the surface of your skin then allowing it to evaporate away. By wicking sweat away from the body, a base layer keeps you dry, comfortable and chill free. Thermal base layers can also help to keep you warm by trapping an insulating layer of warm air around the skin.
