In 2013, I racked up over 6,500 miles on the bike. Actually, I should say on the bikes, plural, as we tested nearly 100 of them for our coverage in the magazine. And the volume of gear we tried was even bigger: New bibs virtually ever time I ride, dozens of wheel sets, components, sunglasses, lights, you name it. The fact is, most gear these days is pretty darn good. But every year there are a handful of products that stand out because they transform a category or simply because they are better than anything else we’ve tried. Presenting our favorite new cycling gear of last year.
