For Wayne Chapman and Richard Powell of bicycle importer Dirt Works, designing their own range of bikes has been a dream three decades in the making. Now, with the launch of the Wayward Bicycle Company, the two are about to realise that dream when they introduce two new touring bikes to the country this July.

The game changer: Magellan Cyclo 505 bicycle computer

Testing the new Magellan Cyclo 505 bicycle computer. Cycle Traveller review

The new Magellan Cyclo 505 has raised the bar when it comes to bicycle computers. In a market heavily dominated by Garmin, Magellan needed to come out with a game changer in order to attract market attention away from the forerunners, and the Cyclo 505 does just that, incorporating Wi-Fi connectivity and adding useful features tailored to cyclists – such as bike path navigation, cycling route suggestions and a bike shop and service finder.

Five essential tools you need to take bicycle touring

Cycle Touring. Cycle Traveller

Unless you're going on a supported bike tour with a SAG wagon to come to your rescue, you should always carry a few essential tools to be able to fix common mechanical problems. Just as importantly, you need to know how to use them. Fixing a bike – at least so it is ridable – is not as hard as it may seem. Many city councils and bike shops offer free bicycle maintenance courses that will teach you how to change a flat tyre and look after your chain and gears. There are also a million videos on YouTube that will teach you what you need to know. You can find some in our Fix It section.

Review: cycling in new Maui Jim Switchbacks sunglasses

Maui Jim Switchback sunglasses for sports. Cycle Traveller

One thing I really don't like cycling without is a decent pair of sunglasses. I find the moment I take my sunnies off something irritates my eyes, whether it be glare, wind, insects or rain. And given I pretty much spend my entire time on the bike behind these little shields, I like to have a pair of sunnies I enjoy wearing. One pair I've just had the pleasure of testing are the new Maui Jim Switchbacks – a sports shade with interchangeable lenses.

Review: Tanami Xplore Pinion gear touring bike

The Tout Terrain Tanami Xplore touring bicycle with Pinion gear system. Cycle Traveller

Those who made it down to this year's Ausbike in Melbourne would have been treated to a very special sight – the first ever touring bike running the revolutionary Pinion gearing system to reach Australian shores.

The German designed Tout Terrain Tanami Xplore, imported by Martin Turner at Urban Cycle who sniffed it out at this year's Eurobike, is like no touring bike you would have seen before, for starters, the gears are integrated into the bottom bracket. That's right, I said the bottom bracket – not the back wheel.

Review: the Topeak Alien II multi tool has you covered

Topeak Alien II mini multi tool review. Cycle Traveller

I must admit that prior to this week I had seen the Topeak Alien II multi tool around the traps for quite some time and brushed over it because of its size: it is larger than other multi tools on the market and therefore also heavier. However, after actually having an opportunity to play with one this week, my interest in the product has changed – this is one cool and cleverly designed tool.
