It’s not every day an Ex-Pro Rider comes in to pick up a new bike.
So we thought, ‘Let’s make a day of it’. ‘Let’s go for a ride-out’, they said. “Let’s capture video and photography” they said. And in typical Lancashire fashion, we woke up on the day to blistering winds and rain!!!
The CGR AL is perfect for winter rides; the ability to run with a wider tyre for added grip and comfort coupled with the optional addition of mudguards mean it’s a confidence boosting and practical option for the UK roads which tend to be filthy and often slippery in winter. The ability to add a 47c tyre on the 650B wheelset also means that if the weather turns a little colder and you’d rather avoid the roads, you can easily mix up the scenery, switching to an even bigger tyre to enjoy some time off-road in the snow. It’s a bike that really doesn’t leave you with an excuse to stay indoors.
