We’ve got a few more pro bike checks from the Tour Down Under, plus an insane video from a much smaller race that left one rider clinging to the side of a bridge do he didn’t fall 30 feet into a ravine!

Canyon had two big announcements this week, the first being their entry into the U.S. (albeit, things might be delayed a bit from original plans) and their ultra lightweight, sub-11 pound Ultimate CF Evo road bike.

If your idea of fun is going off road on a road-ish bike, the new Adventure Cranks from FSA give you super compact gearing that provides the range you want without having to swap derailleurs or cassettes.  Or just screw the roads altogether and take to the grass with the Golf Bike. Not shown in the pics above, we had a little more Shimano news with actual weights and details for the new Shimano Dura-Ace power meter cranks and their new smartphone app that let’s you customize your group from the ride. Lots more new stuff below, all conveniently packaged in headline form…

Golf bike link is broke. Wanted to read about it since a customer here at the shop brought one in a few weeks back claiming his “friend” invented it. It’s really a neat bike and rides pretty good.
