Giant Contend SL1 Disc

The Giant Contend is a new entry to the manufacturer’s road bike range for 2016/7 and is aimed at first-time riders or more experienced cyclists looking for a reliable winter hack.  I had the opportunity to ride the Contend SL1 Disc version for a month or so recently.

Amphibia X2 Bag

At first sight, the Amphibia X2 Bag is a large courier-style over-the-shoulder bag. But it has some hidden talents.

SockMine Running & Cycling socks

Socks are often one of the unsung heroes of the running and cycling world; when they do their job right, you don't even notice them (unless you're a devout follower of the Sock Doping religion). SockMine is a British company that not only designs all its wares here, it manufacturers them on-site in Nottinghamshire.

Skechers GORun Strada
