For this month's detailed looks, our tech writer Anna tells you all about Vittoria's chunky Terreno Zero TLR 38mm tyres, and tech editor Mat Brett talks through the finer points of the Craft Active Extreme X base layer. 

Other highlights include Wolf Tooth's Drop-Stop B chainring - which our reviewer described as ideal for those who want to convert from a double to single chainring set-up with no dropped chains to worry about - and the Muc-Off Stealth Tubeless Puncture Plug kit, that hides a whole tubeless repair solution neatly in your bar ends.

It's not just great gear we recommend on the show either, as we be bring you our Coffee Stop of the Month and also another epic Recommended Route. For our coffee joint we're heading to the east of England, and intrepid and reviewer Matt Page talks us through this month's brutal route... with the woolly ruminants above dropping a subtle hint as to which UK country Matt's ride is in.

Arriving at in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
