NEW BIKES TESTED
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.
