Merida Speeder 2016

If you have the assumption that you could only go fast if you ride a road bike with dropbars, well you could just be proven wrong, because Merida has launched their latest 2016 lineup of ‘Speeders’, a true road bike but with flat handlebars instead of the usual dropbars.

Torpado Impudent Nearco N Carbon

History of Torpado and the Impudent Nearco

Thoroughbred Italian Stallion

Impudent in Italian translates into “wild spirit”, and the Nearco was named after an Italian-bred racehorse that is described by Thoroughbred Heritage as "one of the greatest racehorses of the Twentieth Century" and "one of the most important sires of the century."

That the thoroughbred horse lived from 1935 to 1957 is an indication of where this Italian bicycle brand draws its inspiration.

Born to race

History has it that Torpado began life in at Via Nicolò Tommaseo in Padua then moved to the Industrial Zone, in 1895. In the beginning, Torpado’s early frames were made from steel with aluminum handlebar...

Rock N Roll The King of Lubes Gold Chain Lube

Directions for use: Shake well. Apply a stream of lube to the chain at the cassette. (Do not drip on the lube, like oil, because it’s not oil) Get it really wet, this stuff cleans and lubes all in one. Freewheel the chain backwards for about 5 seconds, then wipe off all of the excess lube. All of it! (You can’t wipe the chain too much, so really wipe it down good.) RNR works great in cold weather but should be applied in a warm environment.

 

HYDROCARBONS. Most people are familiar with how they have powered the 20th century, in the form of petrol, diesel and kerosene (also known as jet fuel). But these legacy handmedowns of dinosaurs f...

Supacaz Super Sticky Kush Bar Tape

The bar tape is an important component on any road bike.  Not only is it essential as an aesthetic part of the bike’s overall racing livery, the bar tape is the first contact point between the rider and the bike, even before he or she hops on it.  And with the prevalence of road biking, road bikers are wildly spoilt for choice from the bevel of qualities and designs of bar tapes that are currently on the market.

The Super Sticky Kush from Supacaz looks set to be a tough contender when it comes to choosing a well-designed and high-quality bar tape.  Supacaz, adapted from the words "super casual", is a relatively new entity based in Califor...

Langtu KCR930 Hybrid Bike

Unique is probably the best term to describe the Langtu KCR930, a hybrid bike that exudes a classic blend of characteristics from a road bike and a mountain bike.  We are not saying that the KCR930 looks weird.  Rather, its uniqueness is largely drawn from the brand-name of the bike.  

In case you are wondering if Langtu could be just one of those small-time brands which probably will not last through a season, then you are quite wrong.  Whilst the cycling industry has always been dominated by big boys like Giant, Cannondale and Specialized, Langtu has been growing steadily in terms of size and stature internationally.  For the past 10 ye...
