Supplied with fitting kits for all cars, after minimal construction the Advanced is ready to mount. Steel straps take care of security, and quick-release levers aid speedy fitting, though we’d have preferred a more positive feel.

The soft rubber cradles have Velcro straps and can rotate to fit top tubes or seat tubes, but can also slide off the support arm. We struggled to mount a 54cm cyclo-cross frame on the widely spaced arms, so beware with fat-tubed small frames. Two straps hold bikes still and the rack folds flat with two bolts removed.

Robin began road cycling in 1988, and with mountain bikes in their infancy, mixed experimental off-road adventures with club time trials and road races. Cyclocross soon became a winter staple, and has remained his favourite form of competition. Robin has always loved the technical aspect of building and maintaining bikes, and several years working in a good bike shop only amplified that. Ten years as a Forensic Photographer followed, honing his eye for detail in pictures and words. He has shot at the biggest pro events since the '90s, and now he's here, drawing on all those experiences to figure out what makes a bike or component tick.
