‘Twas a big week, with new bikes from Cleary, Pinarello, Franco, Mongoose and more, plus all-new (and first ever for the brand) Mavic carbon fiber mountain bike wheels. Security for your bike got a little more explosive with the Bike Mine theft prevention system. We tested Michelin’s Power tire series claims and found that they are actually quite a bit faster, saving impressive amounts of time and energy.
