Despite using the most visually disturbing background ever for their booth, No.22 Bicycle Company have proved once again that they are the masters of understated beauty. Shown above is the new Reactor frameset; featuring a more aggressive race geometry than the Great Divide and dropping a lot of weight through several design tweaks including the use of a carbon seat tube/mast.
This show bike tips the scales at 5.9lbs, which is well below UCI limits, thanks to the ee cycleworks brakes, Cannondale cranks & the bankruptcy inducing Reynolds RZR wheelset.
UK pricing is yet to be confirmed but expect to find your wallet up to 4k lighter… Oh, and if you’d like to replicate this show build you’d be looking at 5 figures… Time to sell an organ or 2 (it’ll be worth it).
That’s right folks, the good people at Raleigh have launched their all new Criterium range. Full carbon frame & forks with great specs starting at just £999.99 for the Shimano Sora equipped Elite model shown here.
Perfect for CycleScheme or available on 0% finance over 2yrs… Get a head start on your new year resolutions!
We like the little guys, brands that step away from the norm and offer something special… Bowman are one of these brands. Born from the imaginations of riders the Palace is a bike built after much riding, racing & consideration, not to follow trends or this seasons marketing buzzwords.
Alloy is back! Didn’t you get the memo?
Bowman frameset £650 – Full builds from £1250 – Shimano 105 (5800) builds from £1500
Finally the new disc only Ritte Crossberg as landed in the UK! An aluminium frame built with good ol’ USA ‘cross geometry is matched to a tapered carbon fork allowing you to race through the mud or put in the gravel road training miles… Coming in mud friendly brown (with baby blue highlights) you may even get away with not cleaning it after each ride!
Narrowly pipped at the post, the Raleigh Revenio Carbon 3 was recently shortlisted against a handful of uber bikes from the likes of Canyon, Bianchi and Trek in the ever popular Cycling Plus Bike of the Year award. Scoring a 4 out of 5 the testers had the following to say
The Revenio is Raleigh’s endurance-biased bike. The rear end smooths out harsh road surfaces while the tapered head tube and stout fork keep it tracking straight. Its sub-1600g Cole Rollen Elite wheelset and light SRAM Rival groupset encourage high cadence climbing.

A thing of absolute beauty…
This build using a SRAM Force gruppo with the crank upgraded to BB30 Red, Cinelli Vai finishing kit and the awesome Reynolds Attack carbon clincher wheelset mean this XL bike tips the scales just above the UCI legal min. weight limit (with pedals)!
We only have a handful of the current matte finish Vlaanderens left in stock £1600 (frame/fork/hset) but we are expecting the new gloss finish frames in any time soon.
Give us a call or drop us an email to discuss your dream build, its not as expensive as you think to get the bike of your dreams!
After yesterdays cheeky teaser CycleLab can now confirm we are extremely proud (read, totally super awesomely stoked) to be No.22’s London dealer… Our first Great Divide frameset (56cm) has just landed and is causing some serious saliva production with everyone who comes into contact.
Thinking about getting the miles in this winter? Our resident sugar addict is hoping to do just that and burn off all those (pre+post) festive treats… Continue reading
Whatever you ride there’s one thing we can all agree, triathletes know what products can make you faster… Launched earlier this year the 58 Aero wheelset proved to be a revelation; fast, light, strong, great in the corners & seemingly impervious to cross winds. What’s more the guys at Triathlon Plus/triradar.com agree voting the 58 Aero’s ‘Wheel of the Year’… These better be on your Christmas list!
