Our Radar Roundup compiles products and videos from the ‘net in an easy-to-digest format. Read on below for today’s findings…

Santa Cruz Updates the Stigmata Gravel Road Bike

One of our favorite all-time carbon gravel bikes, the Santa Cruz Stigmata just received a few updates, including a longer top tube, slacker head angle, improved tire clearance (700×50 for 1x, 700×45 for 2x), hidden fender mounts, a threaded BB, a UDH, and more. Check out the new Stiggy at Santa Cruz and stay tuned as John reviews yet another generation!

Moots Routt CRD Gravel Racing Bike

Light. Nimble. Streamlined. That’s what the NEW Routt CRD is all about: incorporating everything Moots has learned from a decade of making versatile gravel bikes. The ROUTT CRD (Complete Race Design) is a distillation of Moot’s rich history and desire to create a perfect gravel race machine with the purist in mind. The new Routt CRD enters the line-up as their flagship gravel race bike meant for speed across gravel and broken road surfaces, while maintaining legendary Moots ride quality. The Routt CRD continues to improve efficiency where power enters the bike around the BB and dropouts while isolating the rider with lighter tubing both in the seat stays and top tube for those all-day rides. Designed with the spirit of competition and the gravel racer in mind, the Routt CRD is optimized around 40-42c tires with plenty of clearance to spare.

Starling Cycles Workshop Chatter – MegaMurmur, ArdRock, SQLabs and Moor Beer

Joe just landed back from Ardrock and has a bit too much beer and Yorkshire elevation in him… but, he’s here to introduce the new Starling Cycles MegaMurmur, to talk all about Ardrock (and why you really should go), talk about why Starling did a shoot in a brewery and the brand’s collab with SQlabs…

Stuff we see on the ‘net that causes pause…

Exquisite art by @bicyclepubes

We couldn’t not, not, not share this not serious but serious poem and Park Tool CNW-2 illustration by Mr. Pubey for our Radavision today. Anyone who’s used this tool on chainring bolts feels this:

“Oh CNW-2.
You piece of shit.
Your little teeth.
Are they engaged?
Engaged in the microscopic grooves I can’t currently see?
But probably not.”
