This final week of the year we had a number of roundups to show off the miscellany we saw around the tradeshows this year, including some interesting gear, sweet road and gravel bikes, ridiculously awesome kids bikes, and a collection of interesting urban-ish bicycles for all manner of adventure and commuting.

We also put out a few bike reviews, including the Eleven fat bike and Raleigh RXC cyclocross bike. Plus a review of Endura’s newer hydration back protection packs.

Sir Bradley Wiggins decided to end more than the year by announcing his retirement. And many brands were sending off 2016 with some shredding to inspire the new year…or just be goofy and wish us all the happiest of holidays…all in a killer video roundup. We even put together our own “best of” list with our 10 most popular posts of the year! See all the rest of the week’s headlines below, each one opens in a new tab…
