Eastway’s ST1.0 has been dubbed a bike with wide ranging abilities. Chris Catchpole takes a ride to see if this traditionally-styled all-rounder can live up to its maker’s claims…


Can a single jacket replace three garments? Well that’s what Assos attempted with the Intermediate Evo of old and I’m afraid we’ve criticised it, as it never quite worked for…

The technology of the current Dura-Ace track chainset and BB is over 10 years old now, so British company USE has taken matters into its own hands. USE’s cunning plan…

We were so excited when the Rap 14 turned up, but sadly the romance came to a crashing end when we tried to use it on a SRAM Red groupset.…

What score do you award 
something that fails after 150 miles? This is my dilemma. It’s probably Sod’s law that dictates that once an article is published, that’s when the…

Our time with the Stages Shimano Dura Ace power meter has been somewhat up and down but thanks to good customer service and the inherent simplicity of the design 
we’d still recommend…

Shimano R260 cycling show

A stiff sole, soft plyable upper and supportive innersoles combine to make an incredibly comfortable shoe. These three factors 
ensure comfort surrounds 
the foot while preserving performance, with a stiff…

Ridgeback Advance 7.0

Andy Lulham returns to his cycling youth on Ridgeback’s triple-chainset range-topper. On paper, it appears to balance the books, but is there some crafty accounting going on? Can it pay…

Airnimal Joey Commute

Handsome, British-built folder with a ride feel that matches many a hinge-free commuter

We put on Castelli's £159 Poggio jacket and find it good for spring and autumn riding

When you’re good-looking, you can get away with a lot. Not that I’m speaking from personal experience, but whether it’s rudeness on the road, surliness in the supermarket or whingeing…

As big fans of the lace-up, and rather expensive, Giro Empire, pulling on the more affordable Apeckx could have gone one of two ways. Fortunately, it went in a very…

Famous for the wheels that it 
had the audacity to call Standard, Lightweight has grown over the years and now has a few wheel options, but this is the first…

We couldn’t have hoped for a more suitable test environment for Lake’s CX145 waterproof cycling shoes than we’ve had this winter. Riding through large puddles and flooded roads normally ensures…

Overshoes don’t have a hard job in life; they just have to keep your feet warm and dry. These ones do just that. A tad pricy, but lightweight, well made…

Spring might be a few months off but there’s already a blossoming romance in the CW office. We have quite simply fallen in love with this jacket. It might not…

Arguably the most versatile in Assos’s range of base layers, the Early Winter works well under a summer jersey — kind of like a set of arm-warmers and baselayer combined…

Make no mistake: Lusso’s Thermal under-helmet head-warmer is very, very warm. Ideal for when the weather really takes a turn for the worse, coverage is good and it works well…

On the face of it the Diluvio is an outstanding winter glove, exceedingly well cut and constructed with a long gauntlet for wrist coverage, palm-gripper and a nose-wipe. What’s not…

Steady evolution marks the changes for Le Col’s winter jacket and we’ve charted every version so far. This year’s Mizuro gains minor alterations, with all of the details we liked…
