Everything in fashion is circular and it appears bicycle tech is too. While new technology is often hailed as groundbreaking, or never before seen in cycling, you might be surprised to hear what’s been around before.
Our assistant editor Jack and writer Simon delve into the annals of cycling history to pick out the tech that was well ahead of its time.
We have an ever-expanding range of podcasts available on a wide range of podcast services.
The BikeRadar Podcast comes out every fortnight and covers a multitude of topics, and there’s an eight-part Mountain Bike Tech Talkseries too – a more in-depth podcast discussion on mountain bike tech. All our BikeRadar Podcast episodes are listed below.
Our Road Tech Talk series has recently kicked off and in Episode 1 we discuss 1x drivetrains on road bikes (Spotify / iTunes)
We also have a BikeRadar Meets podcast, where we interview interesting and influential people within the bicycle industry. Episode 1, with Jeff Steber of Intense Cycles, is live now (Spotify / iTunes) and can be streamed below.
Finally, there’s our ad-hoc BikeRadar Shorts podcast, which is a reactive news-based podcast in shorter form. The latest edition covers Shimano’s gearbox patent, uncovered by BikeRadar‘s Jack Luke.
Riding since the age of 13, Technical Editor Tom has ridden hundreds of bikes over the past few years, from aero race bikes to EWS-ready enduro rigs, with a fair few others in between. Most likely found in the woods practicing his scandi-flicks.
