As important as our selections are, we think that YOU the people, the cyclists and cycling fans who make it all happen, must have opinions of your own which is why we are once again looking for votes for the RBA Readers’ Choice Award.
What do YOU think was the best road bike upgrade you’ve seen, heard about or ridden this year? Was it a new wheel? Helmet? Bike? Let us know! From all the entries received, one lucky winner will be chosen and to show our thanks they will receive a custom Cat5 Gear bag filled with RBA schwag sent their way. The Cat5 gear bag was one of the most useful and well-designed products we used all year. The deadline for getting your vote in is September 19. Cast your “Interbike Award” vote at [email protected]
1. Bianchi Specialissima – No other bike we tested better encompassed Italy’s history and passion for cycling. Both its appearance and ride quality were the essence of a superlative!
1. Campagnolo Potenza – Utilizing many of the same design features of their higher-end components, Campy brings their vaunted 11 speed component legacy down to the entry-level rider.
1. Garmin Varia Rearview Radar – Varia Radar keeps an eye on what’s going on behind you with radar technology providing proximity warnings for approaching vehicles. Anything that increases rider safety is a big deal.
