The best bikes and gear of 2015, all in one issue. The 2015 Velo Buyer’s Guide is on newsstands and in bike shops now.
The Velo tech crew of Caley Fretz and Logan VonBokel reviewed more than 125 products for the 2015 Buyer’s Guide, including helmets, shoes, jackets, packs, gadgets, and, of course, bikes.
They highlighted the best bikes across segments, from dream road bikes to full-suspension mountain bikes, road bikes built for climbing to workhorse steeds and everything in between. In addition, they took a look at the best gear and bikes for particular types of rides — have a look at our Editors’ Picks for climbs, gran fondos, singletrack, and snow.
Women’s bikes and gear are also scrutinized and analyzed, for both road and off-road adventures.
After selecting a dream bike, and the gear that every cyclist is drooling over, find out which rides or races you need to add to your bucket list. From La Ruta to Leadville, L’Etape to the Flanders Sportive, you’ll never be the same rider after any of these rides of a lifetime.
