It’s a Christmas jumper free zone here at the road.cc video round-up, well, unless you count those chaps mucking about on BMX and mountainbikes. If the onset of the festive season is getting to you then there’s some adventure biking to disappear into and a really good reason not to get a party haircut.
Believe in Bikes
Trek bikes give us their view of the world by bike. Geography may divide us but we are united by the power of the bicycle; a simple, elegant, solution to many of the world’s most complex problems. I’m sure they’d like more of them to be Trek bikes.
Rubber Side Down - Danny Summerhill
Danny Summerhill isn’t afraid to mix it up, racing on the road for the UnitedHealthcare team, cyclo-cross for Maxxis Shimano and BMX with the kids down the local track. For all this we can forgive him his “cereal killer” joke. Just.

No, I said I wanted my hair in rollers, not done on rollers.
Here’s London based frame-builder Tom Donhou explaining how Donhou Bicycles came to be, and then what possessed them to try and make a bike that could go 100 miles per hour on the flat. Look at those lovely frames, gasp at that chainring, wonder at that awesome Ford Zephyr.

Rather bigoted view from a guy still living in the last century. ...
Would it be too simple to say the categories are based on sex, not on gender?
I had to go and look that up and can only agree with you. Quite a handsome Coat of Arms as well.

I concur GP4000 is the hardest I've ever had to mount on a rim, Ultegra wheelset in my case. Shifted the outer skin on my thumbs!...
Another one who deliberately misuses the term. Looking for trouble. Yeah because in London you have to stake out a road all day to find one offence.
Ticks a box, doesn't it?...
Normally I don't have a small enough violin for them but in this case I guess it's possible that their office / secretary / intern submitted this...
