The latest update to road.cc Recommends has gone live with our pick of the very best bikes and kit that we reviewed in March 2022, and we've added a whopping 12 exceptional products to the mix!

One of the products in our list, the Prime Primavera Shorty Carbon saddle, made us have a think about the benefits of the trend to make saddles short. It is something that works really well for some riders, but for others it isn’t so good. Our buying advice this month is therefore all about these stubby saddles.
Alongside what could be some crucial advice, we’ve got our recommended route of the month. As always, you can go and ride it yourself should you happen to find yourself in the locale and we’ve popped the route on our Komoot page.
A ride is never complete without a nice cafe stop in our eyes and we’ve got another fantastic place to visit for your pre, mid or post-ride coffee.
Rounding out the show, we award our product of the month. This one caused quite a long discussion within the tech team, so to find out which product earned this prestigious award, you’ll have to watch the whole video.
Head over to road.cc Recommends to check out all the latest additions, as well as those from previous months.
Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the road.cc staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
