2014 Compact Light Review

Lighting is crucial for safe riding in the dark, and it’s required by law to ensure that you are seen by other road users in low light conditions. But beyond making your presence known to others, effective lighting can increase your comfort levels while riding in the dark, save you from pothole pinch flats or obstacles on the road, and help keep you on course. Getting the most from the smallest package is of course what the market demands and the challenge for lighting designers—and you can still expect to pay top dollar for good form and high function.

Scott Scale 740 Review

Scott can rightfully say that they were at least a little bit ahead of the curve, as almost all the big brands jump onto the 27.5 bandwagon for 2014. Product year 2013 was Scott’s first foray into the middle wheel size with their 150mm travel Genius trail bikes. At the same time Nino Schurter, Scott’s XC star, was winning World Cups with Tomac-esque flair (old-school types will remember Johnny T!) on a prototype 27.5 Scott Scale hardtail.

SportCrafters OverDrive Pro Rollers

I am someone who cycles for the joy of being outdoors in the fresh air, watching the world go by and keeping reasonably fit. For me indoor training is something of a last resort and reserved for extended periods of foul weather or moments of inspiration brought on by new gadgetry such as a new TV in the garage or a power meter.

Scott Addict 10 Review

The term ‘Great Scott’ harks back to a more genteel time, a time when an expression of surprise or amazement didn’t contain a profanity or blasphemy. It’s a term that I hadn’t used in recent memory, nor had I heard it uttered in public that I can recall, until I took to the streets on Scott’s new stealth fighter.
