No. 77Autumn 2021 Oregon Outback Touring Portugal Cyclocross bike as gravel bike? How to make mudflaps Headlight resistanceThe Autumn 2021 tells the story of Anton Krupicka’s amazing Sagebrush and Summits adventure: Running/scrambling and climbing Utah and Colorado’s highest peaks and linking them with a 2300-mile bike tour. Join Lael Wilcox and Jan on their non-stop ride across the Oregon Outback. Check out Jan’s new bike for riding 585 km of rough and loose gravel roads in a little over a day. Rob van Driel takes us on a wonderful tour of Portugal. We ride the Pratt with its innovative steel frame and ask: How well does a cyclocross bike work as a gravel bike? We also test SRAM’s new XPLR gravel group and find much to like. We measure the resistance of generator-powered headlights: How much does a brighter light slow you down? And how much light actually reaches the road surface with different lights?

Nana Ultralight Carbon Minipump
The Barbieri Nana pump is a high performance pump that inflates tires up to 10 BAR and 142 PSI. Thanks to its compact size and low weight this pump can be used in competition. Good reliability is ensured by the use of carbon fiber and titanium. Complete with clips for attachment to the frame. The Nana’s superlight action allows you to pump with more strokes per second to make up for its smaller air volume. Made completely from carbon and titanium, the Nana’s is superlight thanks to high-end materials and simple design, not because it is excessively fragile: The pump is rated to 142 psi (10 bar). Like most minipumps, the Nana works best for wide, low-pressure tires – above 60 psi (4 bar), pumping gets a bit harder. It weighs only 29 grams !!Specs: For Presta valves only Max. inflation pressure: 10 bar (142 psi) Weight: 29 g Carbon: barrel, plunger Titanium: cover Made in Italy

No. 79 Spring 2022Follow with amazement as Lael Wilcox rode the entire Alaska Pipeline Trail non-stop. She recounts the experience almost mile-by-mile, while Rue’s photos took us right into the action. Smile when you read how our bike test turned from ‘just a spin in the hills’ into a much bigger adventure. Learn from Natsuko how to descend confidently without being brave or taking risks. Read about Romolo Stanco, the mad genius behind T°Red Bikes, and be amazed by his ideas that allowed Francesca Selva win the Italian Fixed Championships on a very unconventional bike. Gravel tire choice is still a bit of a mystery. Why do some racers win on ultra-wide tires, while others are just as fast on narrower rubber? Take a deep look at why there’s more to tire choice than only optimizing rolling resistance. Our ‘Project’ article on how to remove a tire without tire levers (no great strength required!), how to patch tubes with 100% success, and how to get tubeless rim tape lay flat inside the rim.

No. 78Winter 2021 Mauna Kea Test: Mason InSearchOf BQ Un-Meeting French Gravel Oregon Outback How to Wrap Leather Bar TapeAnother un-missable BQ, starting with the cover story: Donalrey Nieva and Karen Yung climb Mauna Kea. With Donalrey’s stunning photos, this feature will make you want to head to Hawai’i and ride to its highest point yourself. Closer to home, we ride the Mason InSearchOf, an adventure bike that, according to its maker, is “in the #FastFar, #ContinentCrushing vein, but with steeper, rougher and deeper terrain well within its capabilities.” To test all aspects of the Mason, we venture out of our usual comfort zone onto some true mountain bike singletrack – and have a lot of fun. We bring you the story of three great rides on three continents: The BQ Un-Meeting was in California this year and saw a great group of riders, including the ‘Queen of the Wombats,’ mountain bike pioneer Jacquie Phelan (center). Adem Rudin tells the story and shares his photos. In Japan, we headed to the mountains to attend the 60th anniversary ride of the Alps Cycle Friends and marvel at some beautiful passhunters and cyclotouring bikes. Nicolas Joly takes us to the center of France. Sparsely populated, this region is home to 100s of (extinct) volcanos, 10,000s of cows, and an equally impressive mileage of gravel roads. Nicolas’ friends from the local bike maker Victoire charted a two-day trip that will make you dream of heading to France. We’ve updated our recommendations on how to find the right tire pressure. There are now two curves, since our tests show that there are two pressures that optimize rolling resistance. Which one you choose depends on the road surface and your personal preference. We also look at front/rear pressure, carrying loads and everything else you always wanted to know about tire pressure. Our projects show you the secrets of wrapping leather handlebar tape and – for advanced home mechanics – how to route lighting wires through your frame and rack.

René Herse Babyshoe Pass - 650B x 42
Casing: Standard - Tan Wall
The updated version of our most popular 650B tire is 1.5 mm wider and tubeless-compatible. The new Babyshoe Pass measures a true 42 mm wide on most rims. Mounted tubeless, it’s even more at home on its namesake pass high in the Cascade mountains. René Herse Cycles is the new brand name for Compass Tires.

The road can be quite rough, depending on when it last has been graded. For this challenging ride, you will appreciate the ultimate tire, which will roll as fast as a racing tire on the paved lower sections of the climb, yet float across the gravel on the higher parts. The Babyshoe Pass also is a great way to transform the on-road performance of your 27.5″ mountain bike. All Rene Herse tires combine the performance of high-end tubular tires with the convenience of clinchers and the width for all-road riding. The Standard casing is a more affordable option that also offers extra protection against sidewall cuts on sharp rocks.

Rene Herse Randonneur 31.8 Superlight 42mm
Our most comfortable handlebar for all-day rides. The gentle curve of the ramps supports your palms better than a flatter handlebar shape. This eliminates pressure points that can lead to numb hands and pain in wrists and elbows. It’s a shape that was developed when races were long and roads were rough. We refined it so the shape  ‘just right’ (unlike many similar bars that only raise your hands, but don’t really add comfort). Once you have ridden these, you won’t want to use any other bars for really long rides. Pro Tip: Angle your Randonneur bars upward so the ramps are approximately flat. It’s key to enjoying the supreme hand comfort for which these handlebars are famous. Drops: 420 mm wide Ramps: 390 mm wide (bars flare outward) Reach: 115 mm (bars horizontal), increases as you angle the bars Drop: 140 mm (bars horizontal), decreases as you angle the bars Clamp diameter: 31.8 mm Width of clamp area: 40 mm  Weight: Superlight: 298 g (420 mm) Rene Herse Superlight handlebars are made from extra-thinwall aluminum.

Rene Herse - Jan Heine- The All-Road Bike Revolution
Modern all-road bikes combine attributes that were considered mutually exclusive just a few years ago: comfort and performance. Speed on smooth pavement and on rough gravel roads. A lively feel and the ability to carry a camping load. Handling that is both stable when the rider is tired and responsive on twisty mountain descents. All-road bikes combine the best aspects of racing, touring and even mountain bikes in just one bicycle. Based on the latest research, this book explains how all-road bikes work and what is important when choosing one. A must-read for cyclists interested in the technology of their bikes, and for every cyclist contemplating his or her next bike purchase. 256 pages; 148 mm x 210 mm

René Herse Rat Trap Pass - 26 x 2.30
Casing: Standard - Tan Wall
The Rat Trap Pass (26″ x 54mm) is the ultimate expression of our new Enduro Allroad tires. With its 54 mm width, it is incredibly plush, yet thanks to the smaller 26″ wheel size, it handles like a good road tire. On pavement, the grip of the Rat Trap Pass is incredible – think race car with ultra-wide tires. Experiment with your tire pressures to get the most out of the Rat Trap Pass. Too high, and it will bounce on undulating pavement. Too low, and it will collapse during enthusiastic cornering. Get it just right, and you have a tire that outcorners and outhandles almost any other tire on surfaces from smooth pavement to rough gravel.All Models: Width: on most rims the tires measure 52 mm (with tubes) and 54 mm (tubeless). The Rat Trap Pass is tubeless-compatible in both standard and extralight casing.

René Herse Elk Pass - 26 x 1.25

Rene Herse - Steilacom - Extra Light Black
Named after an iconic cyclocross course near Seattle, the Steilacoom combines the supple casing of Compass tires with a knobby tread optimized for muddy conditions. The knob pattern is designed to pick up as little mud as possible. The knobs are widely spaced to clear the mud as the tire rotates. For riding on hard surfaces and pavement, the center knobs are staggered to offer good rolling. The large side knobs reduce squirm during cornering and make for a smooth transition without the sudden breakaway of most knobby tires. Even thought the Steilacoom rolls OK and corners fine on pavement, it is not intended as a road tire. Use the Steilacoom for rides where you expect muddy conditions – and cyclocross. The Steliacoom is tubeless-ready. Specs: Clincher, folding bead Tubeless-readyFast-rolling Excellent grip Superior traction Clincher tires with the ride of a good tubular Maximum pressure with tubes: 75 psi (5.2 bar) Maximum recommended pressure – tubeless: 60 psi (4 bar) Extralight model,  Ultra-light, ultra-supple casing Black sidewall Weight: 378 g

Rene Herse - Jan Heine- The Competition Bicycle
Explore the development of the modern performance bicycle through the actual bicycles ridden by champions and amateurs! The bikes in this gorgeous large-format book are the actual machines that went to battle on the mountain passes of the great tours. Others whirled around the banked oval of a track. There is a René Herse tandem came first in Paris-Brest-Paris and in the Poly de Chanteloup hillclimb race. Join the newspaper carriers as they raced over the cobblestones of Paris with 15 kg of newspapers on the front rack. Witness how mountain bikers did away with roads altogether and raced on mountain trails. The Competition Bicycle is a celebration of beautiful bicycles lovingly crafted for one purpose only: to go as fast as possible. If you enjoy bicycles, you’ll find this book hard to put down. 176 pages All these bikes tell the stories of their riders and events, but they also take you on a journey through bicycle technology. See how pneumatic tires revolutionized cycling, how derailleurs made their tentative forays into the professional peloton, how racers tried to gain an advantage with aluminum frames, how indexed shifting and clipless pedals came to define the modern performance bike. See highlights like Campagnolo’s immortal Super Record groupset, but also dead-ends like the aero components of the 1980s. The bicycles of champions and amateurs alike are shown in The Competition Bicycle, from a rare 1890s racing High Wheeler to Tony Rominger’s 1994 hour record bike. In between are 32 carefully selected bicycles: the actual machines ridden by great champions like Fausto Coppi, Gino Bartali, Eddy Merckx, Greg LeMond, Andy Hampsten and many others. With well-worn saddles and paint bearing the scars of many a hard-fought battle, these unrestored bikes tell the stories of their eventful lives. Historic photos of these bikes in action complement each chapter.
