Bicycle Quarterly – Number 75: Spring 2021
A magazine about the culture, history and technology of cycling.
The Spring Bicycle Quarterly is our 75th edition. We’ve put together a very special magazine for the occasion. We visit an amazing framebuilder in Japan and find out more about frame stiffness and performance. Karen Yung takes us on the backroads of Vermont. We look at the performance of knobby tires. Nicolas Joly re-evaluates what makes a good gravel bike. We test a randonneur bike from a promising young builder. And to reflect on these difficult times, we look at how cyclists in war-time Paris kept their spirits up despite the challenges they faced.
