<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We first reported on Velo Orange’s Neutrino mini-velo </span><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/small-wheels-big-ambitions-velo-oranges-prototype-small-wheeler/?image=5&amp;type=gallery&amp;gallery=1&amp;embedded_slideshow=1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">back in October 2018</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> when it was an unnamed prototype and, even at that stage, it won the hearts of </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">BikeRadar</span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;">. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Inspired by </span><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/8379107@N03/sets/72157605657619815/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">a 1960’s Jack Taylor Small Wheeler</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">, this 20in do-it-all frameset is, in Velo Orange’s words, perfect for the “frequent traveller, apartment dweller, multi-modal commuter or just someone that enjoys a fun N+1 bike”. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">While it’s never going to be quite as compact as a folding bike, in the </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">oh-so-hard</span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;"> life of a bike tester, space is always at a premium at home, and the Neutrino could fill a space that probably doesn’t need to be filled. </span></p>

</ul>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The concept of a mini-velo is nothing new but this particular take on the concept has already gained something of a cult following, with every batch of the bike selling out in record time, according to Velo Orange. </span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Neutrino is available as a complete build or frameset, priced at $2,500 and $750 respectively. Velo Orange is a fairly small brand so it’s unlikely to ever be able to be competitive on complete build prices, so we imagine the majority of would-be buyers will opt for the frameset. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We’ve only had a chance to ride the bike on a handful of occasions but are already in love with the concept. It’s an absolute hoot to ride and appreciably smaller than a regular bike when tucked away in a nook at home. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Expect a full review and video to follow further down the line. </span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">As an aside, Velo Orange also threw in one of its cute Day Tripper saddle bags with the bike. These bags are produced in collaboration with Road Runner bags. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The saddle bag may not have the Instagram-friendly points of a trendy handlebar bag but there’s no denying its exceptionally practical and, dare we say it, quite handsome in a shade of rust. </span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">WTB’s all-new Raddler is a more aggressive version of its Riddler gravel tyre. </span></p>
<ul>
<li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-gravel-tyres/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Best gravel bike tyres in 2020</span></a></li>
</ul>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The DNA of the two tyres is very similar but the Raddler gets more pronounced centre and side knobs. This results in a more squared-off overall profile that should still roll relatively well on paved surfaces and offer some additional bite off-road. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The 700c-only tyre is available in 40 and 44mm widths, and our 40mm sample weighs 494g. </span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The limited-edition shoe is based on the KR1, the brand’s top-end road race shoe that was developed and worn by Elia Viviani.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The KR1 features a fully knitted upper that extends quite high up the ankle. The super-elastic upper is totally malleable and feels incredibly comfortable when worn. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">However, you’ll have to be on the right side of confident to feel comfortable actually wearing these jazzy numbers in public.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The brand’s imaginatively named ‘thru-axle for bike trainers’ imitates the function of a turbo trainer quick release with two nicely machined conical end caps sitting at each end of the axle. One of these end caps is removable for fitting. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Helpful functionality aside, it might sound daft but the thru-axle is actually a delightfully well-made object. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">It feels high-quality in the hand and neat touches, such as the machined internal lip that holds an o-ring in place to keep the M5-threaded bolt captive, elevate it to a level of luxury that we thought unthinkable for a humble thru-axle. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This particular product is available to fit on no fewer than 15 different thru-axle standards. </span></p>
