Coming in shortly after the beautiful new Giro footwear range we now have our first drop of city friendly cycling garments… First up is the unique Insulated Vest, it’s a super thin Primaloft gillet to keep the wind off your chest on the spring mornings/evenings and says “I’m a cool urban adventurer” rather than “I got a puncture on the way here, sorry”. You might not realise you need one but trust us… You NEED one!
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).
The Ritte 8055 is made from the highest-grade, large volume double-butted 7005 aluminum, with TIG welds and hand-sanded to perfection. Perfect for the track or crushing the competition in a fixed crit, the 8055 just wants to go fast… If you really want to you can fit a front brake and cruise the city the choice is yours… £800 for the frameset.
Or if you’d rather get down & dirty…
Starting with the Rumble – possibly the best casual shoe we’ve seen – at a wallet friendly £70 these ‘trainers’ can be used with and without cleats.
The Republic LX – £150 – is the office shoe of choice, classicly styled and beautifully made these are spd compatible. Perfect for long sunday rides or cruising to your next meeting.
If your ‘cross shoes have come to the end of their life following a muddy winter season the updated £100 Privateer‘s should be on your wish list! As used by many of our ‘cross team these guy have a mid-stiffness sole thats good for those agonising run sections!

We recently handed over one of our first generation No22 Great Divides to the guys at Cycling Weekly… Result? They loved it!
We were happy with the comfort, and topped off with the lightweight properties, you’re getting a great all-round road frame with plush titanium styling’
It rewards positive rider inputs, which made it an engaging ride. We felt compelled to press on, especially on the descents, with good feedback keeping us informed us to the limits of grip and the frame’s capabilities.
You get a robust and plush frameset that should last a lifetime.

Tis’ the season to be orange!
Keeping your rucksacks dry and extremely visible Hump (Respro) have now branched out into jackets. In 3 neon colours and with more reflective than an explosion at the scotchliteTM factory is you want to stay dry & safe this winter these are the answer…
The Signal jacket (£80) is modeled here by Madisons very own Russ, looking strangely tanned with his ‘homage to George’ goatee yet still maintaining that air of commuter focus… Beautiful.
