It seems the days of wheel size debates are behind us (nearly!) and the latest thing people can’t agree on is… E-Bikes.  From being brought up riding bikes from the moment I could walk (my dad is one of the founders of LLB) I decided to buy an electric bike last year, and not only that, an electric FAT....

Mojo boss Chris Porter has stretched conventional limits of geometry and suspension tech, hoping to create the fastest descending bike that still climbs well. But has he created a masterpiece or a monster? The Frame Despite its outrageous length, the industrial-looking tubeset feels exceptionally stiff under power. The four-bar suspension has been tweaked to boost.... More

Its unique horizontally split design might be a bit more of a faff to fit but it has allowed Renthal to produce a stem with an incredible strength to weight ratio. Keeping the bar clamp away from the underside is also good for bars. One of the best 50mm stems we’ve tested. Verdict: 4/5 Reviewer: Dirt

Three-quarter-length baggies are becoming an increasingly popular choice for riders in wet climates and British company Endura already have a number of excellent offerings. The new Spray Baggy shorts, though, are the most versatile of the lot. They use a cunning mix of four-way stretch Cordura on the front and a three-layer waterproof fabric with fully.... More

I replaced the grips on my bike with these Sniper lock-ons about a year ago, so they've seen plenty of miles, muddy rides and sweaty hands. RaceFace claims they're a narrow diameter; I'd call them a medium, although that's no bad thing as they're some of the most comfortable lock-on grips I've used for that size. In terms.... More

As the saying goes, if Carlsberg made a mini pump, this would be it. The Pressure Drive is just 7in long including its rubber end caps - it will fit in a rucksack or back pocket with ease, or clip unobtrusively under a bottle cage. This is the best performing mini pump we've ever tested, and.... More

When, just over 20 years ago, Shimano decided to make clipless mountain bike pedals it came up with a product that’s changed little over the years. The 2011 PD-M520 is the default choice for anyone getting into clipless; it’s cheap, lightweight, easy to adjust and as reliable as night following day. Until this PD-M530 arrived, if you.... More

The Thomson Elite has been around for a long time, and has been largely unchanged since its debut. The post is machined from 7000 aluminium, with a highly ovalized cross-section. The tube walls are 3mm thick fore and aft only 1mm thick on the sides. If you've got an unusual or old frame with an obscure.... More

Collaborating with Troy Lee, these latest ODI grips are available in some ultra-garish colours. But the real beauty of these left- and right-specific grips is in the detail. Etched markings on the inner locking ring allow fast alignment, there's a slight extension of rubber that buffers the pad/outer lock join, plus an angled flange on the inside edge.... More

We've used and liked the SKS Raceblades for years for winterising race bikes, but these quick-fit mudguards from Topeak add an extra touch of design flair. The guards are polycarbonate plastic, with stainless steel struts, and the adjustable clips also have the safety feature of being able to pull away if something gets wedged between the wheel and....

These cycling trousers don't have a seat pad, but Endura's Clickfast liners (£18) will fit if you want to add cushioning, and the crotch is seamless so they're comfortable unlined. The lightweight nylon is reinforced at the crotch and ankles, and the adjustable waist has a webbing belt. Ankle zips enable you to pull them on.... More

Endura's Pro Biblongs are in the mid-range of price, but what you get for that money is a match for considerably more expensive tights. They're made of Thermolite fabric, which is essentially a Roubaix variant with the added benefit of a Teflon surface coating that stops water soaking in for a while. Not for all that.... More

Sitting below the elite XO model is the new SRAM X9 alloy and composite rear mech, at 239g for the long-cage model. The body is a tweaked 10-speed version of the 2009/10 9-speed X9. It's chunky, solid and without a hint of flex or sloppiness anywhere - good portents for accurate shifting. Strong return springs in.... More

Everyone needs to take a pump with them on rides – so why not make it a thing of great beauty rather than just another bike tool?
