In this video, JOM of the Gravel Cyclist crew conducts a long-term review that spans the USA states of Oregon, Texas, California, Georgia, and Florida. Up and down mountain passes, through snow and ice, a varied gamut of terrain to thoroughly test the mettle of the T-Lab X3.22; way beyond the average parking lot bike review or stooging around talking bollocks.

Continued from Above:

“Montreal also happens to represent one of the globe’s leading hubs for aerospace technology and manufacturing. Situated in a province that is buried in snow six months a year, but that has hosted two out of the three UCI World Tour events on the continent. A place with arguably the worst roads in Canada, that also possesses an impressive 750 km network of bike paths and that instituted North America’s first large-scale bike sharing system.”

“It’s in this unlikely bastion of biking that, once upon a time, a young engineering student and cycling aficionado set out to make a better bike out of metal. He did things differently by combining aeronautics-inspired methods with the attention-to-detail he inherited from his Italian ancestors. Thousands upon thousands of world-class frames later, he and his team have embarked on a new mission: to take the everlasting ride quality of titanium and bring it to the next level of performance.”
