This week the team looked at tips to give you a few extra watts, some of the new ‘bike tech’ that was released at the Sea Otter Classic a couple of weeks back (it’s not every day that a gravel bike with a rear shock hits the market) and the start of the Amgen Tour of California.
Are you keen to take your riding to the next level? Here’s a tip that could help, incorporate some weight training into your weekly routine–it’s a great alternative when the weather takes a turn for the worst and will add those extra watts that you have been searching for.

It’s not every day that you see a gravel bike with a rear shock! Yes, you read that right. Niner are at it again, producing innovative bicycles and testing your imagination with their latest Niner MCR Prototype Bike. With gravel riding becoming increasingly popular and Canyon releasing their latest gravel bike earlier this year with a ‘hover bar’, Niner are pushing the boundaries a little further with this bike and it is going to be interesting to see where this road leads. Check out the full review here.
