This week was filled with pro bike checks from both the Tour Down Under and the 2017 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships. Hit those links to narrow it down to just those, then check out this post for some killer random bits and pieces from CX Nats.

While those races gave us a look at the pro bikes, we actually got to ride the new Dura-Ace Di2…something very few pros are even riding yet, and got the actual weights for the new group right here. Shimano also pumped out brand new high performance clothing with their S-Phyre brand. We also toured Cannondale’s headquarters and posted Part One, the office tour. There’s more coming on both of those, including DA ride impressions and a massive gallery of pro/prototype Cannondale and GT bikes. Stay tuned.

On our home turf, we put the new Niner RLT RDO through its paces (and weighed it), and launched The Build Cycle. That’s a new interview series by Tyler that gets the startup stories from cycling industry entrepreneurs. All that, and more great stuff from this week, linked by headline below…
