Road Bikes With Disc Brakes: Hot Or Not? | GCN Tech Show Ep. 70

Road Bikes With Disc Brakes: Hot Or Not? | GCN Tech Show Ep. 70


(logo zooms) – Welcome to the GCN Tech show. – This week we’ve got ourselves a new GPS, a book all about climbs,
a new 12-speed group set, plus a brand new Pinarello. – And our main talking
point, which look better, disc brake bikes or rim brake bikes. – Well, I know the answer to that. Anyway, what’s that? – That’s your can of worms, John. – Oh yeah, ’cause it’s gonna
get well and truly opened. (electronic music) (logo zooms) – Hot tech now, and first up is the news that Wahoo has just launched
a brand new head unit, the Wahoo Element Roam. – Yeah, now the Roam is
a kind of elder sibling, if you like, of the Element Bolt that’s already been released. So in terms of features and functions and everything like that, well, that’s been carried on through, plus some very welcome new additions, too. I mean, we’re pretty big
fans of these, aren’t we? Because they’re so easy to use actually, for even an old fogy like me. (Ollie laughs) – So we’ve got one here. As you can see, it’s very
similar in the way it looks to the little Bolt, but it’s bigger. But it still has this arrow
shape and the arrow mount which is rather nice. However, it’s now got a full color screen, and it’s bigger as well.
– That’s a welcome addition, there.
– Yeah. So, being a bigger screen in color means that navigation’s easier. It’s easier to pick out the little, the differences and the
details when you’re doing that. And an ambient light sensor as well, so the backlight
automatically adjusts for you when you need it, when you don’t need it, and saves you battery. – Yeah, or gives you
extra battery, I suppose, when you really want it. – Well, yeah.
– Yeah. – Yes, but we’ve done a full– – Courses for courses. – Yeah, we’ve done a full
unboxing video on this. It came out yesterday, so check that out and there’s a chance to win as well. – Wow, someone’s gonna
be lucky, aren’t they? – Well, I’m entering. – You can’t. Right, okay, news that
you haven’t seen now. And Campagnolo have just announced they’ll be launching a
new 12-speed group set. – Yeah, they have. I’ll tell you what, worth
pointing out on this, so it’s the new Chorus group set, right? – [John] Yep. – So it’s come down from, they’ve done Super Record and
Record previously in 12-speed. Nice to see that, but it appears they seem to be targeting a bit of an off-road, maybe gravel market with it as well. – Yeah, now the interesting
thing about this as well is that it is for both
rim and disc brake users, so everybody is catered for. So the can of worms here
will be nice and happy for the time being. (Ollie laughs) We’ll get onto that later on. But, yeah, like Ollie says, it has been catered for the gravel genre. I reckon because–
– Yeah, in terms of ratios. – [John] Yeah, because we
got a cassette with 11 to 34, which is pretty wide, and
then chain set size 48/32. – And no 53/39. – Yeah, now that really
does surprise me, actually, because, let’s face it, Campagnolo,
when I think about them, I think tradition,
heritage, and everything, and I would think they
would be the company that would definitely still make 53/39. But they’re not. Oh and, interestingly, this one is just mechanical group sets. We got no EPS version, yet. – More news out of Italy, now, as cycling author Simon Warren
has brought out a new book ahead of the Giro D’Italia. This is his 100 Greatest Climbs of Italy. – Yeah, I’m looking
forward to reading that because, right now, I’m
about to start building up a single-speed bike for Richardson, who wants to tackle one of the climbs that’s inside of this book. So I need to study it quite intensely because I’d hate for him to have the wrong gearing on that bike. (Ollie laughs) That would be a terrible
shame, wouldn’t it? So yeah, I look forward to
getting stuck into this, and no you can’t have it, Ollie. This one’s–
– Which one you doing? – Can’t tell you. – No. – Watch the channel. More tech later. (logo zooms) – This week’s hot topic is
going to divide the nation, probably families, certainly friends. – Definitely any group ride
across the world right now are gonna be kicking off. – Because we’re discussing
which looks better, disc brakes or rim brakes. (intense music) – You’re about to start off probably the biggest debate
in cycling right now, disc brakes or rim brakes. – Well anyway, you know what, right? I’m not just saying this
to be devil’s advocate. I genuinely think the disc
brakes look better now than rim brakes, and the
moment that sealed it for me was, we were filming the new
Pinarello Dogma F12 video, well, it came out yesterday. Video’s up on the channel,
we’ll put the link below. And when we were filming that, we had both the brand
new rim brake version and disc brake version side by
side, and I had an epiphany. It just struck me. The disc brake one, it
just looks so much better. – [John] I’m really looking forward to hearing your justification
for all of this, Ollie. – Firstly, disc brake group
sets have improved loads. We’re now on, like, the
second or third generations of disc brake group sets, and, well, they function a lot
better than they used to. – Yeah, I can give you that.
– But crucially for this argument, right? They look loads better, too. The new SRAM access rotors and calipers, and also the Dura-Ace ones as well, they just look (clicks tongue). – Yeah, they do look good. Hang on, I’m erring on your side, here. (Ollie laughs) No, I, no, I’ve gotta agree. As they’ve progressed
along their timeline, they have started to look much better and also improve in the quality as well, so, like, you know, I can’t
take that away whatsoever. – Yeah, but, but, right? They also, the bikes
just look way cleaner. So if you look at the Pinarello F12, when you’ve got the disc brake version, it’s just so much tidier at the front end. Whereas when you have
the rim brake version, you’ve kind of got this caliper that just kind of clutters it up and just looks like it’s been bolted on. Well, it has.
– Well, it has. – And then you’ve got this sort of cable that just kind of scruffily dangles down out of the stem into it. – Scruffily dangles down cable. I’ve never heard Shimano Dura-Ace be described a scruffy before, other than Pietro Masdea who’s
the biggest Campagnolo fan in the world. Friend of the channel. But I get what you’re saying
there about a cable going down and maybe looking unsightly or something. It’s like having a flat mounted
TV, you know, on the wall, and then you’ve got the
power cable coming down, the DVD cable coming down, whatever, your PlayStation or whatever
it is you do in the evenings. (Ollie laughs) And it looks, it sends my OCD– – Exactly.
– Into a nightmare. (both shudder) – Right, the rotors look cool, you get better cable integration, and there’s no front brake cluttering up the front of the frame. It’s tidier. It’s one of the reasons why
track bikes look so cool. There’s just no brakes there. – I see what he’s trying to do there. He knows I’m a big fan of track bikes, so he’s trying to win me over as ever. But oh no, no, no. Right, so think about it. Rim brakes, there’s a
certain elegance to them. They’ve been around over a hundred years. They’re a classic aesthetic
feature on a road bike. Think Campagnolo Delta, Modolo Kronos. Need I go on? – Classic being a
euphemism for antiquated. – Bringing out the big
words today, ain’t he? – Thing is, John, technology, it moves on. – It does, yeah. I’ve gotta agree with you.
– Get with the times. – Cheeky. Right, yeah, technology does move on, and I’ve gotta say I’m a
huge fan of the performance of disc brakes. I absolutely love them, and I was one of these
people a few years back who was like disc brakes
on road bikes, no way. Forget them. But I’ve totally changed my opinion. – Oh, don’t worry. It doesn’t
matter what we think anyway. I’ve done a poll on social media. – Yeah, I did see that
pop up actually, Ollie. And well, I also want my mates to vote, so all three of them. So Pietro Masdea, Tom Last,
and Michael McDermott, (Ollie laughs) I hope you all voted.
– You didn’t ask me. – And erred on the, well, I think after this we’re
not gonna be friends. I think they erred on
the safe side of caution, but, well, let’s just
look at those results. – [Ollie] Wow. – [John] Yeah. – [Ollie] 54% to 46% in favor of discs. – Yeah, now not actually
a fair poll if you ask me, because, if you look at these pictures, they’re not shot in the same way.` So again, my OCD is going
a bit of a nightmare. And it’s a well-known
fact, I think, that the, you know, if you do do poll like that, the top bike, or top whatever it is, always gets the most votes. So I see exactly what
you did there, Ollie, because you set that up, I think. – Well, do you know what, right? I mean, although I do think
disc brakes look better, I am actually surprised by that result. – Yeah. – And I am pretty confident that, if we’d done this same poll two years ago, which isn’t that long ago, that rim brakes would’ve
won by an absolute mile. – Yeah, I totally agree with you on that. But either way, it’s not what we think. Well, it is. But what do you think? Get involved down there
in the comment section. Which looks better, rim or disc? Disc or rim? The can of worms, well, it’s
not exploded yet, has it? – It will do in the comments. – Oh yeah, they love it. (logo zooms) Right, then. More tech now, and a recent
interview with Bonnie Tu, who is the CFO of Giant and
the founder of Liv Bicycles, recently said that, apparently, Giant, or the overarching brand of it, is gonna be launching
a new range of products aimed at the very enthusiastic cyclist. So that’s great to hear, isn’t it? – Yeah, well it might be
the overachieve components that we’ve been seeing here,
there, and everywhere recently, or could be a new ladies’ brand. Don’t know. – Yeah, don’t know. Lots to speculate, though. But something certainly not
to have to speculate about is Bonnie also announced the fact that they’re gonna be releasing a new range of commuter bikes. So going away from the brand of Giant and actually starting up a
new name called Momentum. – Momentum.
– Yeah. – There you go. We also had the launch of the brand new Pinarello
Dogma F12 yesterday, which we’ve already mentioned in the show. But–
– Disc brakes, blah, blah, blah.
– Exciting for me about it was it was in the new Team Ineos colors. The first time–
– Oh, what are they? – We’ve seen it, well, it’s
kind of like a burgundy red that fades into black, so it’s, if you’ve, well, if you’re familiar with Star Wars, it’s basically the
colors that the Sith use. Make of that what you will. Anyway–
– Oh, yeah, I will. – There’s a video in the description. – Yeah, don’t head on
over there yet, though, because we’ve also got
news that EY and Velon, two absolute leaders in their fields of, well, data transmission if you like, they’ve just launched Velon Live. And this is gonna provide cycling fans with real-time updates on
the riders’ performance. – Yeah, there’s gonna be speed data, power, cadence, and
even heart rate as well, and some other stuff. It’s gonna be available to
view through either the app or on the website, and it will
be for broadcasters as well. So that, well, you can
just get better engagement with the cycling that’s on TV. I’m really excited about that. – Yeah, I think this is a great
time, actually, for cycling, because, if you look at things
like Premier League Football, or soccer, in the UK, you can
get all these sorts of stats. They bring up, you know,
how far a player has run and those sorts of things,
how many passes they’ve made. And it really helps with, well, newcomers to the sport, actually, to get more engaged.
– Yeah, Formula 1 as well, with all the meters and
data that they put onscreen. Yeah.
– Good work Velon Live. – Like it.
– Look forward to that. More tech next week. (drill screws) (bell dings) – It’s now time for Screw
Riding Upgrades, Buy Upgrades, where you submit pictures, but we’d also like to see
drawings of your upgrades for the chance–
– Or an oil painting. – Yeah.
– An oil painting. If you, if anyone submits an oil painting, they’re gonna win. I’ll rig the votes. – Especially if you use pointillism. Anyway, this is the
Camelbak Eddy water bottle which you have a chance to win so that you can drink while you, can stay hydrated while
you’re doing your upgrades. Anyway– – Yeah, so get involved using
the uploader tool down below. – Yep. – Actually, we need to
announce the first ever winner of the Eddy bottle. – Who was it, John? – Well, last week–
– Rock me. – Remember we had Bristol versus Bath? A very local Darby for us. The winner was Cameron, so well done Cameron and your Trek TT bike to road bike conversion. – Yeah. – That looked beautiful, mate. – That was great. – So get in touch with us on Facebook to arrange delivery of it. Or, alternatively, just pop in. Just pop by the office. Knock on the door and see
if either of us are around. You can come in and get
it from us in person. We’ll even fill it up with water for you. – Yeah. – Can’t we? – Could do that. – Yeah, should we send
him the can of worms as, oh, better not. No, no.
– No, no, no, no. – Not gonna get that. Right, okay, who’s
first up then this week? – Well, this week, last week
we had a TT to road bike, this week’s a road bike to TT bike. – Ooh. – So we’ve got Collin. – Right. – Now, Collin had decided to set himself a new
challenge for this year. He wanted to take up time trialing. – Brave man. – Good job, Collin. Love a good time trial myself. Now, Collin has quite a lot of bikes, so he needed an excuse to
keep hold of his first bike which is this beautiful Trek Madone. Now, he also didn’t want
to buy a time trial bike. That’s good. You don’t
need a time trial bike. – Nope, don’t need one. – To have a go at time trials. I was gonna say triathlon then. – Oh, big no no. – So he’s done a few, he’s
done a few mods, right? – Yep. – So first thing,
changed his crank lengths from 172.5s to 170s. Good, done your research there. Short crank length helps
open up your hip angle. – Slightly more aero as well, Ollie. – Nice.
– For someone like you. – Like that, Collin. – Yeah, good work, Coll. – He’s also put Data TT bars on there, so he’s got, like, a TT cockpit on there. Nice. Dura-Ace bar and shifters, ISM saddle. – Ooh. – Nice, ’cause that, well, it’s a good saddle for time trialing. You can get aero in it. Doesn’t put too much pressure on. – Yeah. – And he’s gone for 55 and 88 millimeter carbon deep section wheels. He’s reincarnated his Madone. Look at that. Now look at it now. – [John] There it is. Wow, look at that. That’s nice, isn’t it? – Smart.
– Yeah. – Light on the back. Safety first. – Yeah.
– Good. But, bottles, mate. Not very aero. – No
– I’d take those off. You don’t need to drink in a time trial. – No, well, it depends
how long it is, isn’t it? – If it’s a 25, you don’t need to drink. – You heard it here first. Yeah, just go easy out there, Collin. – I heard it from Chris Boardman, so. – All right, there we are then. Yeah, we can’t argue with that, can we. Nice looking bike, that, Collin. Yeah, nice looking bike.
– Yeah, that’s sweet. Who’s he up against? – Right, okay, well, big
Collin is up against Joseph from Newcastle upon Tyne. – Ah, Joseph, right. Let’s have a look at this bait, then. – Yeah, let’s have a
look at Joseph’s bike. Now, after much persuasion, Joseph’s girlfriend said
he could build himself a cross-stroke gravel
bike if he could do it for under 100 pounds. Joseph started hunting eBay as well as rummaging for bits
at a local bike charity shop. A suitable looking
frame on eBay was found, A steel Peugeot with bosses
for cantilever brakes for just 25 pounds. A fork in not-quite-matching blue color was purchased for just four pounds 99. Brakes followed for three pounds, along with the bottom bracket, stem, seat post and bars for 10
pounds from Recyke y’bike, the bike charity shop in Newcastle. So I’d imagine if you said
that with a Geordie accent, Recyke y’bike. – Looks absolutely fantastic, that mitt. – Right, okay. Joseph luckily already had a set of Shimano wheels and tires. Also had a cassette, all
pinched from his dad’s garage, so he didn’t really have them. So we’re not encouraging theft here, but I like to see what he’s done there. It’s from his dad. He also found a saddle
and some pedals there. A friend donated some Ultegra
derailleurs and chain, and a FSA chain set from
eBay made up the drive train. – Nice. – Tiagra 4600 shifters were
another big ticket item, 26 pounds. (Ollie laughs) Including cables, headset,
brake hangers and other bits, Joseph was, sadly, well
over the 100 pound budget set by his girlfriend,
and has since been dumped. No, he hasn’t really. With the total cost
coming in at 142 pounds. So there’s the old Peugeot frame. Look at that. – Yeah. – Oh, head set, bosses.
– Does it have it all done? – There it is with the wheels on inside, probably, the living room. Gonna get a telling off for that, won’t he from his girlfriend? – Yeah. – And there it is, the finished bike. – I like that bar tape. – Yeah, that reminds me
of the old Cinelli cork. – That’s cool, that. – Yeah, nice looking bike, isn’t it? – That’s a cool bike, yeah. – For 142 pounds, that. I mean, I know he already had
the wheels and stuff, but– – Bargain hunting. – Yeah, who’s it gonna
be, Collin or Joseph? – It’s a tough one this week. I think they’re both wicked, yeah. – TT conversion or cheap cross-bike. – That’s a tough one. – Yeah, vote, well, just up there. Who’s it gonna be? – Someone’s gonna be getting hydrated. (Ollie laughs) – What does that even mean? – Don’t know, just sounded good. (logo zooms) – Right, bike of the week time. Now at the moment of the
show where you get to vote between two bikes that
we put head to head, but, well, last week I thought to myself let’s mix it up a little bit. So we put two free hub sounds,
well, hub to hub, I guess. – Cheek to cheek. – Ooh, Chris De Burgh. Nice reference, there. – Yeah.
– We like a bit of CDB. – I saw him live once in
Doncaster Asda car park. – What? – That’s another story. Save that for another time. – Oh, I wanna hear it right now, but I don’t think we’ve got time. (Ollie laughs) I’m very intrigued. Weird as anything. Right, okay, who was the winner, then? It was between the Vision
Freehub and the DT Swiss. (Ollie clicks tongue) – DT Swiss took it. – Ooh. (hub winds) – 53% of the vote. – Ooh, star ratchet winner. Nice, nice.
– Yeah, yeah. – Right, who’ve we got this week, then? Have we got another free hub or– – This week (knocks). (sighs) – What?
Can of worms? – No, we’re gonna do the
Pinarello Dogma F12 disc versus the F12 rim. (John laughs) – Oh, I see what you’re doing there. Oh, our two bikes. Just look at them onscreen. – Yeah, nice. – Ooh, yes. You know what to do by now. Vote just up there for your favorite and, well, Ollie, really, this week, mate, you are opening up a can of worms. (logo zooms) – It’s now time for my
favorite part of the show. – Oh, I absolutely love
it. Why is it last thing? – I don’t know. We save the best for last.
– Yeah, true. The bike vault, where you
submit pictures of your bikes and myself and John rate them
either nice or super nice. And if they’re super
nice, what happens, John? – Well, we give it (rings bell) a ring of the bell. Oh yes-a-rooney indeed. We give it a good old ring of the bell, and Ollie, he’s got a
bit of a headache today because I’ve just done that. So there we are. Not as much of a headache or ear bashing I’m gonna give him later on
when he won’t tell me more about this Chris De Burgh story. Right then, Ollie. First up this week, mate, we’ve got Jaime from Houston in Texas. Absolutely love that city. 2018 Focus Izalco Max Disc. Oh, and look at it. – [Ollie] Tidy that, isn’t it? – [John] That is a nice looking, it’s a small bike, isn’t it? – [Ollie] Yeah, he hasn’t got
much seat post going on there. – [John] Nope, nope, not a lot. – [Ollie] I think that’s
why it’s making it look a little bit smaller. – [John] Yep, and also
stem goes up quite a bit. – [Ollie] Yeah, well, interesting
build on that Izalco Max ’cause it looks like he’s
got one-by setup there. – [John] Yeah, yeah. – [Ollie] Also a non-round ring, and that looks like a 34
cassette on the back of it. – At least.
– Or 36, yeah. – [John] At least a 34. I reckon bigger. 36, I’d say.
– Lined up his hunt wheels. – [Ollie] Is that an XTR rear mech? – Yeah, I mean–
– It is. – [John] It’s a real,
like, one-by hack job. – Jaime–
– It’s got power tap pedals on there.
– Yeah. – [John] That’s a really smart,
that’s a super nice on one. – [Ollie] Do you reckon it is? – Nice little moon light–
– Now, I don’t like that on the stem.
– On the back. – [Ollie] That GPS, mate. – [John] Yeah, well, that is
a proper K edge mount, though, isn’t it? – It is.
– It’s a proper one. It’s not, like, a hack
or a bodge or anything. – [Ollie] Well, debatable. – [John] I think that’s,
it’s very neat and tidy. – [Ollie] Yeah, it is, actually. – [John] There’s a few slightly
unconventional touches. – [Ollie] KMC chain. – [John] Yeah. – [Ollie] Color chain. – [John] Pump on the bottle cage. Bit unconventional, but it’s cool. It’s very neat and tight. I like it. I think it’s a super nice one. – [John] Oh, it’s cable disc brakes. Notice that?
– TRP ones, yeah. – [John] Yeah, yeah, TRP Sprye, is it, or something they’re called? Yeah, well, it looks to me,
well, the tires are matching up. Valves are matching up. – [Ollie] Good depth of field as well. – There we are. Amateur photographer, Oliver Bridgewood. Right, give it a ring. Do you want to ring?
– No. – Okay, I’ll ring. (bell rings) Right, then. Who is next up, Ollie? – Next up we’ve got Nathan
from Glen Arbor, Michigan, on Inspiration Point
overlooking Glen Lake. – [John] Pretty sure he
doesn’t speak like that, mate. – [Ollie] That’s his Fuji SL 2.3. – [John] See, we can’t
actually tell that, can we, from the picture? – [Ollie] No, but yet I like
his Pioneer power meter. Do you know, that Dura-Ace crank set– – Love it, yep.
– The previous version, so, so beautiful. – [John] Yeah, still got one
of those 53/39 of course. If I was riding Campag,
I couldn’t use that. It is a nice bike, isn’t it? – [Ollie] Yeah, I do, I would prefer– – Gum sidewall.
– That, that, yes, they’re speaking to me. I would prefer the bike
to be more square on to the camera, though. That jaunty angle with the
steerer slightly turned is just offending my OCD. – [John] Yeah, it’s a
bit like that picture that Ollie put into the poll on Instagram. – [Ollie] Don’t know what
you’re on about, mate. – Where he put his bike–
– Don’t know what you’re– – [John] At a funny angle. – [Ollie] Don’t know what you’re on about. – [John] Oh, well, I do. I tell you what, though. It’s got a little, is that
a little exposure light underneath the saddle as well? Thompson seat post. – I think it’s a nice–
– Color coordinated bar ends to match up with
that green Camelback bottle. – [Ollie] I think it’s
potentially a super nice, but he’s just not sold it with the photo. – [John] Look, there’s, like,
a seat in the background made out of stone. That’s like a sofa. – [Ollie] That’s Inspiration Point, John. – [John] I’ll take that from you, then. So it’s just getting a nice, is it? – [Ollie] Yep. – Okay, just gonna get a nice. Right, who is next, then. – Ooh, Trevor, outside my house. – Trevor, right, we’ve, I, I, no. – Is that my house? – Yeah, it’s not my house. It’s not his house. It’s not your house,
but where are you from? We don’t need to know your actual, like, house number and road,
but just a city or rough– – Maybe Trevor’s a secret
agent and he doesn’t want us to know where he lives. – Yeah, well, he won’t
be looking very secret on that Woodrup, will he? Because that is a Woodrup
Il Primo, I mean– – I like that.
– Reynolds 953. – [Ollie] Look at the fork there. Look at the detailing there. – [John] Yeah, nice bit of lug work. DT Swiss rims it looks like on Hope hubs. Beautiful. Again, that classic Dura-Ace chain set. Little, tiny– – [Ollie] I think I need to
clear something up here, right? – [John] You see it? Oh my god, look at the color of it. – [Ollie] That’s nice. – [John] Look at the color of it. – [Ollie] Yeah, it’s your
favorite. Do you know what? I need to clear something up. Wheel orientation, brake valves, right? – Brake valves?
– People always pick it up– – Brake valves?
– Not brake valves. Tire valves, right?
– Yeah, okay. – [Ollie] People always pull up on this. It is important, but
it’s not a deal breaker. – No.
– It isn’t, is it? It can be the deal breaker,
but it isn’t always. – [John] Yeah, it depends
what side of the bed we woke up from. – [Ollie] Today it’s not a
deal breaker on this one. That, for me, is a super nice. – Yeah, well, even with, like, the end of the handlebar tape. Look at the little bit of black. Look at the top of the stem. Saddle is, well, is
very far back, isn’t it? – Are you struggling on this one? – No, I’m not. I really like it, actually. I really, really do like it, but– – I think you’re struggling. I was like super nice.
– No, I’m not. No, no, I’m saying super nice. Yeah, yeah, are you saying super nice? – I’ve said it. – All right, it’s a super
nice, then. (Ollie laughs) (bell rings) Good work, Trev. (laughs) Right, then, who’s next? – Oh, look at that. – [John] That’s the– – A T1.
– Cervelo T1– – A track bike.
– Track bike. – [Ollie] That looks really good because it’s got no rim brakes
cluttering up the frame. – [John] Yeah, it’s Andrew
from London, this one. – [Ollie] Landon, right. – [John] London. (Ollie laughs) Sugino, I think it’s a 75 chain set. Might not be the 75. – Pista–
– Campagnolo Pista wheels. – [Ollie] That’s, I mean, that’s easy. That’s a super nice. Easy, easy. Do it, do it.
Come on. – Well, even, even with the– (kicks desk) – Stop messing around. – Nearly dropped it, then. – Stop messing– (bell rings) – Nice looking bike. Right, final one this week. Ollie, who’ve we got? – Jeremy, from Atlanta, Georgia. – Don’t know why he does it. I don’t even think his accents are close. (Ollie laughs)
Are they close? I don’t know.
Let us know. Right, it’s the Milwaukee
Bicycle Co Fugitive all-around tourer. – [Ollie] Yeah, that’s cool. I mean, it’s kinda weird. It’s, like, an unusual looking bike, but it’s kind of, I mean, look at this. Look at the head tube angle on that. Very upright. – [John] The forks look like
they’ve been bent backwards. – [Ollie] It’s very upright. – [John] Jeremy, have you had an accident you’ve not told us about? – [Ollie] It’s a very functional and slightly different looking bicycle, but I kind of like it. – [John] The front rack, for me, is dangerously close to the
tread, isn’t it on those tires? Imagine you had some mud dislodged. Well, you’re gonna get a
face full of mud, aren’t you? – [Ollie] Yeah. – [John] It’s gonna spray up at you. – [Ollie] Yeah. – [John] Be careful. – [Ollie] Yeah. – [John] But I do like
the purple components. – [Ollie] I’m just trying to
avoid euphemisms about racks, but anyway, it’s got a gold chain. – [John] It has got a gold chain. (hip hop record scratches) It’s a bit too, it’s a bit
too cluttered, the background. – [Ollie] Yeah. – [John] You know, it
doesn’t stand out enough. – [Ollie] It’s not popping. – [John] ‘Cause it’s quite a dark bike. – [Ollie] It’s not popping. – [John] It’s a lovely
bike, actually, isn’t it? – [Ollie] Yeah. – [John] Jeremy’s done wonders with that. If he took it somewhere just without such a
distracting background. – Nice.
– I think that’s it, isn’t it? – Nice.
– Yeah, nice looking bike. So you know what to do by now. If not, submit pictures of your bikes using the uploader tool down
there in the description below, and maybe, just maybe, it’ll come through and we can rate them
either nice or super nice. Include where you come from, too. Not outside my house. – Or my house. – Or his house. (logo zooms) All right, there we are then. Nearly time for the end of the show. It is always sad, isn’t it? – Yeah.
– Yeah, but don’t worry because we’ve got heaps
more great content coming up for you, because, well, tomorrow, we head on over to the Bespoke
Bicycle Show in Bristol and we’re gonna have
three excellent videos coming up from that. I’m looking forward to that. It’s a great little show. Monday, well, I’m back
in the maintenance set, and I’m gonna be showing you exactly how different types of head
sets work and function. – Yeah, don’t forget to subscribe and click the little bell
icon if you haven’t already. And if you’d like to watch another video, then we’ll have got
two great ones for you. So you can click on me to watch the new Pinarello
Dogma F12 rim and disc, and click on John to watch the unboxing of the Wahoo Element Roam
which you can also win as well. – Wow, someone’s gonna
be lucky, aren’t they? Do you fancy worms for dinner? (Ollie exhales) We can talk about that
Chris De Burgh concert in an Asda car park. (Ollie laughs)
