Alex is joined by our technical editor-in-chief, Robin Weaver, and senior road technical editor, Warren Rossiter, to impart their vast knowledge and answer this month’s questions from you, our dear readers and listeners.

Warren recommends a Shimano-compatible 11-speed Miche cassette that includes the sweet-spot 16t sprocket, while Rob tells why you need to carefully research whether your enduro bike frame is compatible with dual crown forks (or not as the case may be).

We also discuss cycling kit for bigger riders and the best tyres for a mountain bike that’s been converted into a commuter.
