It’s been a hugely tech-packed start to the year – we’re only in March! Really makes you wonder what’s going to be unveiled at Eurobike this year, given that the Tour de France is kicking off just one week later…
But no need to dream about what’s coming up when Shimano has unveiled perhaps the biggest overhaul in its history, Pirelli and Conti have both revealed their latest racing rubber and Enve has jumped into the gravel market with its new MOG.
Then there’s the new SRAM Force groupset, the new EnviLiv, Adidas’ new road shoes and Victor Campenaerts making waves on a Classified rear hub. But that’s not even to mention the new Giant Revolt X, Cannondale SuperSix and new Pinarellos that we’ve covered elsewhere – it’s been a crazy time.
For this month’s Garmin giveaway, we have the Garmin Rally RK100 pedals. It’s a single sided power meter and is compatible with Look KEO cleats. Of course, as with the other Garmin Rally pedals, if you want to switch out the pedal body to accept a different shape of cleat then you can do so.
The beauty of the best pedal based power meters is that you can easily fit them to any bike and get riding after a simple calibration. The batteries in these pedals can last up to 120 hours and have a power accuracy of +/- 1 per cent.

In quite a surprising move, Shimano has decided to replace its entire mid-range groupset suite with a single ecosystem called ‘Cues’. Shimano Cues will include options for nine, 10 and 11-speed drivetrains and the focus is all about interchangeability and compatibility.
Right now, Cues is all about making more sense of Shimano’s flat bar offerings. Although we might more familiar with Shimano Sora as a nine speed groupset for drop bar bikes, Shimano does produce alternative shifters and brakes so that the gruppo can be used on flat bar bikes.
Shimano also has its Altus range, which is a groupset of nine speed mountain bike components – naturally for use on bikes with flat handlebars. But, and this is the crux, neither Sora nor Altus were fully mutually compatible.
So for professional and hobbyist mechanics across the globe, it’s brilliant to see Shimano taking steps to simplify its range. We’ve also…
