BikeRadar’s long-term test bikes
Welcome to the home of BikeRadar’s long-term test bikes.
At the start of the year, every member of the BikeRadar team selects a long-term test bike to ride over the course of the following 12 months.
Some choose a bike from their favoured discipline and ride it hard for a year, constantly scrutinising its performance; others opt for a bike that takes them outside of their comfort zone, in a bid to get to the bottom of the burning questions facing prospective buyers.
Our long-term test gives us the opportunity to truly get to grips with these machines, so we can tell you how they perform through different seasons and on ever-changing terrain.
