What is an adventure road bike?
An adventure bike is useful for heading off road but in areas with less technical features. They also very useful for touring or commuting as have very strong wheels and tyres and can handle rougher terrain than a road bike. Typically they will have disc brakes and bigger tyre clearance so you can ride wider more comfortable tyres. Therefore they are very useful for both road riding and light off-road riding if you do a combination of both.
What is a gravel bike?
These take a far fatter tyre than adventure bike or even a cyclocross bike. Typically they go from 28 mm up to 45 mm and are designed to right across relatively tough and steep terrain. These also have disc brakes. They are great for conditions across multiple types of terrain including bridal tracks and farm tracks as well as of course gravel, but won’t deal with thick mud as well. These bikes are more suitable if you do off-road riding has will not cope with the tarmac as well. There are some great circuits and loops to ride these bikes in WA including the bibbulmun track.

The Numbers Game – InfoCrank Cycling Power Meters.
For professional golfers, numbers rule. Their livelihood depends on them. The difference between winning and losing could come down to whether you have the right numbers or the wrong ones. That’s definitely the case for Brett Rumford, 6-time European Tour winner. It’s all about the numbers.
For proof of this, just look at Brett’s final tee shot in the ISPS Handa Super 6 Perth International last week. He knew the numbers: Par 3. 134 meters to the pin. Deep bunker 3 meters to the left. Subtract 9 meters for the tailwind. Subtract 6 for the air temperature. Subtract 10 meters of elevation. The numbers tell him he needs to hit a ¾ pitching wedge. The result? Brett’s ball landed within a meter of the hole. Victory was secured that instant in front of the home crowd.
Brett puts the same emphasis on numbers into his passion for the bike. He has to have accurate power measurements every time he clicks in and pushes off, or else, why ride? Time is precious for a professional athlete as it is for you the working / family man. And so he makes the most of it.
That’s why Brett chooses InfoCrank – so he can accurately measure his output to the watt and maximize his riding time when not on the course. When on the bike, he rides to a specific power number so he knows he’s training effectively and efficiently. That’s the power of power.
Numbers equal results. Information equals speed. So, like Brett, get the right information and get the most out of your rides with InfoCrank.

Advantages of the InfoCrank Cycling Power Meter
You need a power meter for your bike that works every day, no matter where the adventure may take you. InfoCrank is IPX7 rated, meaning you could ride it submerged in a stream without any water ingress issues. You’ll get a perfect stream of data in all sorts of crazy conditions – from the heat of Perth summers to the mid winter rain.
Temperature affects strain gauges and messes with the readings. Other spider, hub or crank based power meters use algorithms to compensate for these errors. But InfoCrank was built specifically to eliminate problems without relying on complex calculations. Every data point from InfoCrank is completely accurate and true, making it the best power meter for a road bike.
Cycling pushes us to our limits, and we need our tools to go the distance with us. InfoCrank has all its electronics protected inside a high grade alloy crankset, making training with a power meter a breeze. What’s different about InfoCrank? It just works. Only every time.
InfoCrank is the most accurate cycling watt meter. But you’ve heard that from every other bicycle power meter on the market, right? +/- 1% or +/- 2% doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s a bit deeper than that. Unlike any other power meter, we have proven our accuracy through external certification to validate our claims. And, because InfoCrank doesn’t drift, it’s always as accurate as promised.
On any bike
Power meter cycling training will be seamless with an InfoCrank. In fact, there is no difference between the watts measured on one set of InfoCranks and another*. If you switch the InfoCrank between bikes, or you have one on each bike, the watts measured on both are the same watts. Accurate for the whole ride, every day. At Cyclemania we can fit and maintain your infocrank powermeter and advise on best options
*Lab tests during production have shown that each bike crankset is within 0.5% on average.
No data drift
Accuracy claims don’t usually take into consideration drift over time when cycle training with a power meter. Drift is when the power meter data is inaccurate due to temperature changes affecting the strain gauges. It can happen in one day, or over the course of a week or month. Power meters usually resolve this issue by re-zeroing before a ride, but that just indicates that the accuracy of your last ride had drifted. It was no longer accurate as claimed. Our new cycling power meters resolve drift by design and require no re-zeroing to keep the data accurate.
Verve Cycling and British Cycling Announce Powerful Partnership
Manchester, UK, 26 November: Verve Cycling, the designer and manufacturer of the InfoCrank, has entered into a five-year relationship with British Cycling. The partnership is
designed to give Great Britain Cycling Team athletes across all Olympic disciplines the opportunity to ride with accurate power measurement capabilities.
The Great Britain Cycling Team will use the data that is available from the InfoCrank to continue to give them the edge as they strive to remain the worldʼs single most successful
Verve Cycling will also work with British Cyclingʼs cutting-edge coaching and sport science infrastructure to develop the InfoCrank product for those disciplines that do not yet have true power measurement.
Iain Dyer, Head Coach of the Great Britain Cycling Team, said:
“Accurate data will always make the difference when combined with all the other work that we do with our athletes and Verve Cycling has proven to be committed to achieving best in class
in this increasingly crucial area.
“We look forward to working with their team to develop new applications for those disciplines that do not yet have accurate power measurement, aiming to understand and apply all the information that we can gain from the InfoCrank, whilst continuing to look at the innovation of the product.
“We are also very pleased that our partnership will make the InfoCrank more available to members of British Cycling, at an exclusive rate, to support their own efforts to achieve the best performance possible.”

CYCLEMANIA NOW HAS GIOS BIKES IN STORE!
These bikes are renowned worldwide for their beautiful styling, high build quality and traditional craftsmanship. Cyclemania now has these amazing bikes in stock. Come in and check them out.
In the early days (1930’s), GIOS produced city bikes which had a classic appearance and looked nothing like their bikes of today. They expanded their design in the early seventies to produce the ‘Easy Rider’, which had the appearance of a Harley Davidson motor cycle and caught the attention of many at the 1971 Milan Cycle Show. None more so than Giorgio Perfetti, the multi-millionaire owner of chewing gum company ‘BROOKLYN’, who ordered 100 Easy Rider bicycles for a competition being run by his company. This relationship proved to be the turning point for GIOS, later pushing them onto the world stage.
In 1972, BROOKLYN decided to create and sponsor a new professional cycling team, with GIOS bikes being their ride of choice. The new BROOKLYN team, headed by two of the biggest stars of the era, Roger De Vlaemink and Patrick Sercu, quickly became a major force in professional cycling. From 1973-1977 the BROOKLYN team amassed an enviable list of results including classics such as Paris-Roubaix, Milan-Sanremo, Tour of Flanders and the 1974 Tour de France green jersey….. the list goes on.
The now famous ‘GIOS BLUE’ colour was originally developed by Alfredo Gios to match stars and stripes on the jersey of the BROOKLYN team. This unique and recognisable colour combined with the success of the BROOKLYN team, meant that GIOS and GIOS BLUE became an iconic part of a rich Italian cycling history…. and to this day enjoys an almost cult following among cycling enthusiasts worldwide.
