Bikes and gear for surviving the cobbles
This article originally appeared on BikeRadar.
Another Paris-Roubaix has now come and gone and in its wake lies a wide range of bikes and gear that teams adapted to survive the cobbles. It's a mostly standard formula these days - slightly relaxed frame geometries, high-volume tyres, more cushioning at the contact points - but there was still plenty of variation to keep things interesting.
Take a look at our wrap-up gallery of some of the most interesting bikes and gear that caught our eye in Compiègne, France. And don't worry - we've also got a few more pro bike features to come from the Hell of the North.
Check out the gallery or see Part 1 of our Paris-Roubaix tech coverage.
