Alan Dorrington’s preparation for the 54th Three Peaks cyclo-cross race is in full swing now, take a look at his ride, the Handsling CXD over on the Cycletech Review website.

My ‘Peaks-optimised’ bike features top-mounted chicken levers for better control and weight distribution on the steep descents, a 1x drivetrain for weight loss and simplicity, a near 1:1 gearing set up with 44×42 as the lowest gear and fat, bombproof 34mm tubs for puncture resistance and comfort.
