Gear of the year: Tom’s top picks from 2022

Gear of the year: Tom's top picks from 2022

Hello, my name’s Tom Wieckowski, and I’m (fairly) new here. After the best part of five years of running a workshop and servicing bikes on a daily basis, I joined the Cyclingnews tech team back in September. My ‘gear of the year’ kit list is a mix of items I have researched and purchased myself and have loved using this year, as well as some that I’ve tested as part of my new tech team role.聽

I like to think my list comprises items that do what they say on the tin and represent a solid investment that I truly enjoy using, but will also improve the cycling experience in some way.

After stopping for a moment to actually think about my inclusions in this list and why I have chosen them. I think they all come from a motivation to try and make the correct gear choices to minimise potential issues arising in the first place. The issues that can be created by ending up in inappropriate kit, without the right tool or with an unnecessary bike problem can spoil your day and leave you feeling annoyed. I want my kit to work properly when I’m on the bike so I can just focus on the riding. When all is said and done, all most of us really want to do is get out and enjoy riding our bikes, and minimising the things that can scupper that can only be a good thing.聽
