Guy Kesteven

Freelance Writer, UK

Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.

Mongoose Canaan Elite

We’re talking about a range of superb kit for the cash here, but is this year’s Canaan Elite really light enough for the elite?

Specialized Pitch Pro

£1,399.00

4.5

Pitch is Specialized's new lower priced long travel platform, but they're certainly not cutting any corners with this 'economy Enduro'.

Whyte E 120 XT

£2,899.00

5

Whyte have always been a low weight choice, but the new E-120 adds a big dose of authority and aggression to create a real hard riding trail bike, not just a race day special

Spank Subrosa Rims

£42.99

4.5

These 30mm rims fatten up larger tyres nicely and they've proved impressively stiff and strong in tests

£34.99

Pricey and best suited to bog-snorkelling muddiness but unbeatable in the right conditions

£1,950.00

Giant's superb freerider shows just how far you can go with 6in of travel

£59.99

This is a pure performance top rather than something you'd wear to the pub, but at this price we're not complaining.

£58.00

4.5

This simple but super effective top has been a frosty ride favourite for ages. The Windfoil membrane is sandwiched between a fleecy front and backed with a fast wicking inner face to keep you cosy but surprisingly dry, even when the air is icy.

£75.00

3.5

Decent performance cunningly disguised as a smooth looking socialiser. The cut is more casual than most tops here with subtle sublimated logos.
