NEW BIKES TESTED

Cyclist - - Contents -

Once upon a time it was easy. We’d wan­der into a bike shop, seize a bike by its top tube and lift it up. If it weighed less than a hard­back book we’d hand over our cash. Th­ese days be­ing light is great, but it’s not enough. We also want our bikes to be su­per-stiff for snappy per­for­mance, as well as be­ing as comfy as an old arm­chair. All three bikes on test this month claim to have solved the light/stiff/ com­fort­able equa­tion. Cy­clist finds out which of them has done its sums cor­rectly.
