Best of British – 10 tech highlights from Hope, Reynolds, Brooks, and more

Here in the UK, we’re in the midst of a four-day weekend to celebrate the Queen’s platinum jubilee, so for this week’s Cyclingnews Musette, we’ve put together a bumper edition of British tech; we all know the Queen is a fan of corgis and horse racing, but here’s hoping she’s also really into CNC-machined brake calipers, handmade steel bikes, and incredibly luxurious cranksets.

All of the gear on show this week is from British brands. Some have been producing long before the Queen’s coronation in 1953, while others are decidedly more modern. In all cases though, they highlight that despite being a pretty small island, constantly battered by wind and rain in the north Atlantic, we’ve got a boatload of bicycle heritage with brands to continue that on for another 70 years.

Crack out the bunting, raise a glass of Pimms, have a cream tea in the rain, and wrap your eyes around some of the best of what Britain has to offer.
