This is the ‘pick n mix’ section so go nuts. Sweet parts, custom nuggets, high performance upgrades, tools to keep you rolling, it’s all in here. It has been necessary to take a downhill vs trail stance on a few items such as bars and stems, key items which play a big part in that balanced bike system that we all set out to achieve. In terms of materials, carbon, aluminium and even titanium all have a place in our choice here. You’ll find a wide range of grips for all weathers too and some truly stunning lights to make night riding a very good winter option. Should you choose to find some sun there’s a way to get your bike transported safely and without the usual wrestle or rips that a cardboard box brings with it. But there’s more rudimentary things too, and if you chose to stay and weather the storm a simple mudguard, arguably one of the most under-rated parts of this whole shebang.
