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.

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?

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.

Nana Ultralight Carbon Minipomp
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

Rene Herse Randonneur 25.4 Handlebars
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 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. Handlebar widths are center-to-center. All models (except 37 cm) Drops: 400/420/440/460/500 mm wide Ramps: 370/390/410/430/470 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 37 cm model: Drops: 370 mm wide Ramps: 295 mm wide (bars flare outward) Reach: 115 mm (bars horizontal) Drop: 135 mm (bars horizontal) Clamp diameter: 25.4 mm Width of clamp area: 35 mm Weight: Superlight: 296 g (420 mm); Lightweight: 339 g (440 mm) Rene Herse Superlight handlebars are made from extra-thinwall aluminum. This specification can only be used for handlebars up to 420 mm wide. Rene Herse Lightweight handlebars are made from slightly thicker, but still very light, aluminum to compensate for the longer lever arm of the wider bars.

René Herse Hatcher Pass - 700C x 48
Casing: Standard - Tan Wall
At 48 mm wide, the Hatcher Pass hits the sweet spot between narrow gravel tire (38 mm) and mountain bike volume (55 mm) – ideal for the latest generation of gravel and all-road bikes.

Rene Herse - Steilacom - Extra Light Zwart
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 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 Fleecer Ridge - 700x55
Casing: Standard - Tan Wall
The ultimate tire for bikepacking and gravel adventures – and recipient of Bikepacking.com’s coveted ‘Gear of the Year’ award for the ‘Best New Component’. Developed together with bikepacking legend Lael Wilcox, the Fleecer Ridge measures 29″ x 2.2″ (or 700C x 55 mm), making it a perfect fit for bikepacking bikes.We name our tires after the passes that inspire them: Fleecer Ridge is the toughest climb on the incredible Tour Divide that traverses the Rocky Mountains from Canada to the Mexican border. On a ride that long, you’ll need a tire that can handle a huge range of conditions, from deep snow and mud via fast gravel to pavement as you descend into towns to resupply.The Fleecer Ridge grips like a knobby when conditions get tough. On pavement, it rolls like a slick tire thanks to its large and strategically placed knobs that don’t squirm and always put the same amount of rubber on the road. The Fleecer Ridge is the world’s first bicycle tire with noise cancellation: The staggered tread blocks create overlapping noise frequencies that partially cancel each other.The Standard casing is our more affordable option: comfortable and fast, yet also strong to withstand considerable abuse. The Extralight casing takes the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level. The Endurance casing is reinforced for extra sidewall protection and puncture resistance, while retaining the speed and comfort for which Rene Herse tires are famous. The Endurance Plus casing provides the ultimate in sidewall protection for extremely tough conditions.The Fleecer Ridge is tubeless-compatible. For tubeless setup, we recommend Panaracer SealSmart. When used with tubes, we recommend SV19 or SV19A tubes. Pro Tip: The noise cancellation improves further during the first 30 miles (50 km) as the sharp edges of the knobs wear off a little.
