10 of the best new bikes
Avanti Inc 3
New Zealand brand Avanti is new to the UK, but produces a broad range of well-designed, well-specced machines, including mountain bikes, time-trial machines and BMXs.
The aluminium-framed Inc 3 is its top-end city bike and pairs a virtually maintenance-free Shimano Alfine 11 hub gearbox with a clean, quiet belt drive instead of a regular chain. Add in powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a stealthy matte-black paint job and you've got a perfect urban assault weapon.
