2022 Reilly FUSION AERO ROAD DISC - riding 3.jpg

The Reilly Fusion is one of the nicest-looking bikes that we have seen in years. Take a bow Reilly, this frame is finished beautifully. The Fusion uses investment cast tube junctions to create a frame with the most graceful lines. You might even mistake it for carbon. 

You still get that excellent titanium ride feel, though, which combined with the geometry means you can ride the Fusion as hard and as fast as you like, in comfort for many, many miles.

2022 Ortlieb Quick Rack-2_0

Ortlieb's Quick Rack is an affordable and versatile luggage system for bikes with eyelets, and even frames without as long as they're not made out of carbon. The rack is super quick to mount and take off, making it an excellent, temporary option for carrying a decent amount of cargo. 

The rack has a maximum load of 20kg and its 10mm diameter tubing is constructed of aluminium. Weightwise, this one comes in at 580g but Ortlieb also offers a light version that weighs 440g.

Universal Colours Spectrum Light Men's Short Sleeve Jersey An environmentally conscious festive bargain

The Universal Colours Spectrum Light Men's Short Sleeve Jersey - which is a stupidly long name - is made entirely from post-consumer recycled Italian fabrics and is extremely light and breathable – ideal for summer riding. Its performance was excellent during the recent 35°C heatwaves, and though it's easily a match for other jerseys at the same price, that £120 price is still not insignificant.

Some lightweight jerseys can lack a bit of structure, but the material here has just enough stretch to be tight without being restrictive.
