Over the last few years, the world of cycling has seen several trends in the use of components and accessories. Below are just a few:
-Tubeless tires. Tubeless tires offer a number of benefits, including enhanced ride quality and greater resistance to puncture, with wheels that are nearly flat-proof. They also require less tire pressure.
-Road bikes with disc brakes. Wheel and frame manufacturers have begun to make road bikes that are compatible with disc brakes. The advantages of disc brakes include enhanced stopping power when the road is wet and greater frame clearance for large tires.
-Sock doping. Cyclists have been adding flare to their look with socks of all colors and patterns. The latest trends include loud colors, argyle patterns, and even mismatched pairs.
