Britain's cheapest bike is back on eBay (but you probably shouldn't buy it)
There are two things we can say of the GetB — it’s probably Britain’s cheapest bike and it’s almost certainly the most terrible . The former bike-share bike has popped up on eBay again for just £50 posted . Britain's cheapest bike is officially terrible This bike-mounted plant pot is officially the most millennial bike accessory ever £50 may sound like a bargain but we’d urge you to read our full report on the infamous bike that we managed to render utterly useless in less than one minute of riding last year. It’s also worth stressing that the specs of the bike change throughout the photos on the listing. Assuming it’s from the same seller we bought ours from, it will likely come without a rack and will have the cheaper black drum brakes fitted. If you do decide to buy one, please let us know how you fare in ...

Evenepoel to resume racing at Nokere Koerse and Bredene Koksijde Classic
Remco Evenepoel will reunite with Deceuninck-QuickStep teammates at Nokere Koerse and Bredene Koksijde Classic on Wednesday and Friday in Belgium. Despite crashing out of the UAE Tour in February, the 19-year-old has otherwise had a strong start to his debut season with Deceuninck-QuickStep in his two opening stage races, and the team's management is eager to see how he performs in the one-day Classics. Deceuninck-QuickStep have already won four of the opening Classics; Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, Le Samyn and Strade Bianche, among their total of 16 victories so far this season. At Nokere Koerse, Evenepoel will join the team's sprinter Alvaro Hodeg, who won a stage at the Colombia Tour, Rémi Cavagna, Iljo Keisse, Davide Martinelli, Le Samyn winner Florian Sénéchal and Pieter Serry, during the 195.6km race. "Nokere, with its narrow roads and legendary cobbled uphill finish, was already going to be tough, but the wind and rain ...
The weekly spin: Trends collide as Yamaha launches Wabash, a gravel e-bike

Tirreno-Adriatico: Alaphilippe wins bunch sprint on stage 6
Sometimes, the plan doesn't quite come together, yet still, Deceuninck-QuickStep go on winning. It's that kind of year. The penultimate stage of Tirreno-Adriatico seemed to lend itself to Elia Viviani's sprinting talents, but instead, it was Julian Alaphilippe who claimed victory for the Belgian squad in Jesi. Deceuninck-QuickStep spent much of the afternoon working to peg back the day's early break and when the men in blue massed on the front of the peloton in the final kilometre, the scene looked set for Viviani to land his second stage victory of the week. The Italian champion seemed to lose his way somewhat in a chaotic finale, however, and opted to latch onto Peter Sagan's rear wheel as the sprint unfolded. Up ahead, meanwhile, his teammate Max Richeze was delivering a pitch-perfect lead-out for the irrepressible Alaphilippe, and the Frenchman, though hardly on his preferred terrain, produced a scorching acceleration to ...
Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon DB wheelset review
Sam Challis Monday, March 18, 2019 - 15:38 Fulcrum has broken new ground with its Racing Zero Carbon DB wheelset, with great effect 4.5 / 5 £1,899.99 Fulcrum has a vast offering of wheelsets to suit many budgets and riding applications, but its new Racing Zero Carbon DB wheelset is ostensibly the most intriguing design it currently offers. For starters, the Racing Zero Carbon DB is Fulcrum’s first tubeless-compatible carbon rim. The Italian brand has long sold its carbon rims with undrilled rim beds, citing the increased stiffness and structural integrity this imbues the rim with, but this is the first time the rim bed and sidewalls have been specifically designed to seat tubeless tyres. The Racing Zero Carbon DB’s rim is also wider internally, with Fulcrum suggesting the 19mm diameter will pair well with 25mm and 28mm tyres. The wheelset is the only disc-brake design on the market to ...

Roval CLX 32 Disc 650b wheelset review
We were massively impressed with the 700c versions of Specialized’s Roval CLX 32 Disc wheels. According to the engineers who developed them in Specialized’s wind tunnel, those 32mm-deep wheels have a more aerodynamic profile than their 400mm-deep forebears. That same profile is present on this 650b wheelset. Road bike groupsets: everything you need to know Roval SLX 24 wheelset review The wheels are tubeless compatible (or ‘2 Bliss Ready’ in Specialized speak) and can be set-up with either standard tubeless rim tape or Specialized’s rim plugs, which are included along with 12mm thru-axle end caps, quick-release levers, fittings for quick-release frames and a pair of wheel bags. The rims’ wide internal width (20.7mm) means they’re perfectly suited to big-volume gravel tyres (I ran mine with 42mm Specialized Sawtooth tyres). I set them up tubeless using Specialized’s plugs, which was pretty easy and didn’t require too much fettling. The rest of ...
