Here are some words we associate with January: dull, grey, cold, sad, Jones. Which one is the odd one out? Correct! It’s ‘dull’, because how could the month after Christmas in which you get to play with your new toys possibly be dull?
At BikeRadar towers we’re all zipping around on flammable hoverboards and playing with the shifters on our new bikes, and even as we do so fresh kit keeps showing up in the post. It may be the end of your first week back at work, and yes, you are eventually going to have talk to that nice lady whose shoes you were sick on at the office Christmas party. But in preparation for the weekend, let’s cast an eye over 11 new things you won’t be able to afford (unless you sell your kid’s new Xbox on eBay).
New road bike gear
Giant TCR Advanced
It’s Bike of the Year time at our sister magazine Cycling Plus, so the workshop is heaving with tasty carbon. The world has more than its share of black bikes already, but we think you’ll agree that this race weapon from Giant looks absolutely stunning. It weighs a hair over the 6.8kg UCI minimum weight in size small and comes with a full Ultegra groupset and Giant’s own SLR 1 carbon clinchers.
