PezCyclingNews’ Tech N Spec section is our take on cycling gear reviews & bicycle equipment technology. We use the gear we test, and test the gear we use, sometimes for months. Over the last 12 years, we’ve reviewed hundreds of products, and have a pretty good understanding of how & why something works the way it does. Or we know who to call to find out.

Use our Search, Tags, or navigation arrows to quickly discover our complete Tech N Spec library, and if you have a question, email us at Content@PezCyclingNews.com

Here are some great gift ideas from Campagnolo, Bell Helmets, Pioneer, Bikase, Giro, Science in Sport, Rudy Project, CompuTrainer and photographer Darrell Parks’ 2017 calendar.

    dedacciai-full-bike-940

    Corey Sar Fox is used to the finer things in life, and was reticent to try a 'mid-range' bike, but after a month of using the Vertigine by Dedacciai he has changed his mind. Cory summed up his experience in one sentence: "The Dedacciai Strada Vertigine impresses with top notch ride quality from a mid-range offering." Here is his more in-depth view on this Italian beauty.

    eurobike16-canyon-940

    After exploring Eurobike for 3-full days, you’d think that all the colors, lights, bikes, wheels, helmets, glasses, shoes, would all start to blur together, but that’s where you are wrong… at least for one brand in particular, Germany’s own Canyon Bicycles. Instead of drowning out, their bikes stood out from every booth and corner of the show.

    verge16-strike-940

    Verge Sport - makers of custom technical cycling apparel since 1999 are a brand who's profile might be a lot higher if they sponsored a Pro Tour team, but making and delivering pro tour level kit for local teams and riders suits them just fine.

    velofix16-van940

    Save time. Ride more. The Velofix slogan says it all, and they delivered when I booked them for a visit to PEZ HQ to tune-up one of my favorite bikes just in time for winter riding season. Fast, convenient, and good quality work made a solid first impression.

    interbike16-1-940

    New head gear from Bell, and Lazer. Smart Helmets from Lumos, Sena and Babaali. And sound from Domio. 2016 seems to be the year that smaller and more agile helmet manufacturers all decided it was time to bring cycling head gear into this century…

    PEZ sat down with Victor Major, CEO and the R & D director of Velocite Bikes, to learn more about his new Venn 507 carbon rim and CTL, or Continuous Tangent Layup…we were intrigued… Interesting choice of acronym considering nothing gets tangled up here, I assure you.

    velocite16-syn940

    When I was asked by PEZ to write a review of the new Velocite Syn I was not particularly receptive to the idea, but not because I don’t like the bike. Because I do like it, in fact I very much like the bike, but the problem that I saw was how to write a review about a bike made by a company that sponsors you to ride their bikes?
