Winter Bicycle Quarterly out now.


We just got our copies of the latest Bicycle Quarterly. In a bit of a departure from the expected BQ subject matter, this issue has (among other things) reviews of 2 modern titanium bikes, an overview of the three major integrated brake/shift levers (SRAM Doubletap, Campagnolo ErgoPower, Shimano STI) and a side by side comparison of Shimano and Campagnolo ELECTRONIC SHIFTING SYSTEMS (Spoiler: electronic shifting is underwhelming).

We also have back issues in stock all the way back to Fall 2011!
