Throughout the year we're lucky enough to ride hundreds of different bikes from across the entire spectrum of cycling. Some are great, some perfectly good, some downright awful, but we try to give you the lowdown on as many as possible.
But what if we could condense all these into a key hit-list of bikes that you should look to consider if you're planning to equip yourself with a new bicycle in 2018?
Well, that's just what we have done. Below there's a list of all the bikes, both for tarmac and dirt. Scroll lower down and you'll find links to all the reviews. You'll also find a series of features which were written in conjunction with each of the bikes, exploring a different theme connected to the bike.
