Lighter bikes are faster up hills - that's pretty much a fact. And, when the goal is to get to the top of the hill as fast as humanly possible - i.e. during a hill climb race - getting a bike as light as possible is vital. Joe and Jack, from the BikeRadar team are aficionados of the hill climb bike - over the years they've competed nationally at hill climbs, with their bikes weighing around the 5kg mark. So, how did they get their bikes quite so light? In this Tech Talk, the guys go through the different components on a bike, discussing where's best, and where not to try and lose some weight.
