Ariel Ace (2014-current)

Ariel has more recently been known for producing quirky-looking space-framed Atom sports cars with fearsome power to weight ratios and superbike levels of acceleration. But now they’re back making bikes. The Ace is a modular concept, so you can have any style you want from the cruiser shown here, to a super naked. Build quality is superb, it comes with ...

Yamaha XVS1300 Custom (2014-current)

Yamaha’s XVS1300 Custom off-the-peg chopper is a rebadged Yamaha Stryker, originally released in the US in 2011. It mixes ‘American Chopper’ styling with bomb-proof Yamaha build quality. Badge snobs might sneer at its lack of ‘Harleyness’ but it’s a capable machine and superb value for money.

Product Review: Oxford Track Pump with gauge

Oxford Track Pump with gauge, £29.99 Time used: Seven race meetings. What’s good? When my twin-cylinder Sealey foot pump broke on me after just a year (letting air out of the tyre when you connect it), I decided to give this upright track pump a go. It’s more expensive than a conventional foot pump, but it’s easier to use, you ...

Product Review: Sealey twin-cylinder foot pump

Sealey twin-cylinder foot pump: £11.17 Time used: One racing season. What’s good? I’ve been using this for regularly for racing, as well as keeping my road bike, pushbike and car tyres inflated.
