David worked on the tech team from 2012-2020. Previously he was editor of and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds, and you can now find him over on his own YouTube channel David Arthur - Just Ride Bikes

Rolling XTR 9020 SPDs for my gravel bike.

Enjoy having two-sided access for quick entry, no matter what the situation and the wider platform for greater comfort. Usually good deals on pricing available, plus I can walk in my shoes!
