Riding Disciplines with Bike and Wheel Choosing Guides
"Here are some great explainer cycling videos showing compatible bikes for the various cycling disciplines and good information on bike wheels and components for those riding styles. We start with some basic learner videos moving on to technically advanced cycling videos for the more experienced rider. For this cycle learning section, we are using GCN videos, we`re not sponsored, we just think they make some fun but informative videos covering these topics. Please enjoy and let us know your thoughts below". Thank you, your AEROC support team.
Great learner video for buying your first road bike, covering average starter bike and higher-spec road racing bike costs; a guide to groupsets, component materials and a glimpse at a gravel bike.
GCN`s Ollie and Si race in Oman to discover the differences when riding a road bike and a gravel bike up the epic Jabel Shams climb. An entertaining way to understand the pros and cons of road bike v gravel bike.
Si and Ollie again showing us the difference in performance between gravel and cyclocross bikes. They explore the technical attributes of these multi-surface bikes and why you might choose a gravel bike over a cyclocross bike and vice versa.
To help figure out if a gravel bike or XC mountain bike is best suited for a Welsh mountain, Rich from GMBN and Hank from GCN take on a fun challenge and learn along the way about the individual traits of both the gravel bike and XC bike when encountering this challenging cycle terrain.
Understanding the main characteristics of aluminium bike wheels and carbon fibre bike wheels. The guys from GCN explain using some good standard entry-level production wheels and go into great detail about the advantages and disadvantages of riding aluminium and carbon fibre bike wheels.
A little dated now but still a great video in explaining the positive effects of upgrading from entry-level wheels to full carbon racing aero wheels, with the advantages in lower weight, aerodynamic drag and rolling resistance of upgraded carbon bike wheels; improving the overall performance of your road bike, leading to faster cycling speeds and times.
