Cranked #22 is our ‘feed your curiosity’ issue. We take a trip to South Africa’s wine region to do stuff with bikes that’s best tackled, frankly, with a clear head, Tym Manley celebrates a 90s racer who was years ahead of his time, eBikes come of age with the start of a new race series, and we talk to three riders about their life-changing accidents – and what they’re doing about life in a wheelchair. Plus building trails and community in the desert, a magical history trail tour, why dropper posts are upside down, and the longest journey ever to buy an ice cream. Probably.
