Welcome to Bike War! As you’re probably more than aware, the 2017’s are here and more are being released everyday. The growing trend for this year and next are “aero” bikes, and all-road or gravel bikes. Disc-brake equipped roadbikes are still evolving and while it’s a “must-have” for manufacturers to offer it in their line ups, amongst roadies we’ve seen and talked to, the jury is still out on their desirability on pavement – at least until the UCI and the pro’s decide.
So again, a brief intro for our new visitors, Bike War rates bikes against each other, pretty much arbitrarily, and for the simple fun of it. We don’t pretend to be experts on road bikes – lots of resources on the ‘net for that already. Realizing that there are tons of cools bikes out there, we’ve included a little bit of commentary on some of the lesser known bikes, or new bikes. And no, we can’t cover all or every type of bike, so you’ll see a little bit of bias towards carbon fiber, modern bikes, and road bikes. But that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate vintage steel, touring bikes, folding or even BMX’s. (And we certainly love titanium frames.) This is just a fun-on-the-side gig for us, and we still have day jobs!
So these will remain as Bike War’s broad categories: road bikes, time trial / triathlon bikes, cyclocross bikes, singlespeed / track bikes and fixies, mountain bikes, and randonneuring bikes.
There you have it, still lots of eye candy. If you would like your bike highlighted here, send the pic to: firstname.lastname@example.org . The clearer the picture, the better. And don’t forget to include specs. Check back daily, or better yet, subscribe via email. Enjoy!
