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 (and the Randomizer) to quickly find your way through our compete Tech N Spec library, and if you have a question, email us at Content@PezCyclingNews.com
The Fly6 is an innovative HD camera and rear light that has become an internet sensation since its inception thanks to some amazing footage of crashes, crazy car drivers, animal attacks and more. For the last 3 months PEZ editor Chris Selden has been extensively testing the new model Fly6 across the roads of France and today he brings you his complete review of the upgraded unit released this week.
Today on PEZ we travel over to Europe where our ex racer Chris in France has been checking out some cool new products from BBB accessories and Scicon Bags and our ex-Pro mechanic Alastair in Spain has been spinning his legs with the latest in accessories from Wahoo. 3 products that won't break the bank but proved to be very practical indeed.
Wahoo Fitness' KICKR Power Trainer review: The lack of a rear wheel is most notable but that’s no place near this trainer’s best feature...
The market for indoor cycling training systems is constantly increasing and evolving, and while most non-trackies are opting for fixed-mount trainers, TruTrainer has reconverted me to the fun of rollers with their top-end quality and ride feel. Pez reviews TruTrainer's Premium cycling rollers.
Eurobike. It's the biggest and best bike show in the world for a reason - it simply has EVERYTHING on display from the entire bike industry and is the show that is the most talked about by PEZ fans. So here by special request is one last look from inside the halls of Eurobike 2014 in Germany at some of the weird and wonderful bikes, accessories and more that we couldn't fit in our first specials.
Cyclocross preparation and racing is all about the little details, and the Verge CX jacket has the small details checked so you can focus on the ride ahead.

As the PEZ himself and our Technical Editor Charles are hard at work in the midst of Interbike let's step back to Eurobike for a moment for one final look at some of the best bikes and gear that were on display in Germany. Clothing from Castelli & Sportful, accessories from Ritchey, bikes from Lapierre, Eddy Merckx, GT and more.
Eurobike has so many beautiful bicycles that it's impossible to fit them all into one article - or two or even three for that matter! So following up from last week's look at some of the best that was on offer here's some more showbikes, 2015 models, daily riders and more to get you going on a Monday.

Eurobike, it's the biggest bike show in the world and once again PEZ was there in Germany checking out all the latest gear. Today we have a closer look at some of the beautiful bikes on display from LOOK, Cinelli, Ridley, Canyon, Scappa, Caterham and more.
We saw the brand new DIVO marque at Sea Otter this Spring, and it impressed enough to warrant ink time in our report. While very few of the bikes actually exist I was lucky enough to ride one for several days while at the Tour de France's middle week in the Vosges and Alps mountains stages.
One look at the modern day pro peloton shows an abundance of skinsuits being used during standard road stages. What was unthinkable just a few years ago is now commonplace as riders look for the latest edge in aerodynamics and comfort. I recently put Verge's mid priced Triumph Carrera road/criterium skinsuit, through a long range test with some surprising results.
Quick. Name the family-owned Italian manufacturer producing pro-race winning frames exclusively in Italy since the 1950’s. Colnago, Pinarello, De Rosa all probably come to mind but Sarto are the family (and brand) still exclusively producing in Italy for more than 50 years and I have their new custom Energia Disc.
Pioneer's first power meter set a new standard for on bike pedal stroke analysis, but for 2014 the whole system has been thoroughly re-engineered and re-envisioned, coming out with loads of improvements and features. PEZ took the new system through its paces and further explored its unique capabilities for pedaling analysis.
LOOK have a long history of innovation and their latest bike, the 795 Aerolight which was just launched is surely the most innovative bike yet from the French team. Aero, light, responsive and totally unique with its 11 patents this is a bike that has been designed as 'The best aero road bike ever made'. PEZ was there at the launch in Paris to check it out and then take it for a ride to put those claims to the test.
