In this second instalment of our hill climb series, Reuben heads up to Scotland for the Dukes Weekender and finally gets his hands on his Reilly hill climb bike.
- Introducing Hill Climb Diaries
- How to become a hill climbing star
- Can one gear really work for hill climbs?
Meanwhile, Joe does his first open hill climbs of the season. The first doesn't quite go to plan, but he gets it all out the second attempt.
Check out the video above to see them in action, hear about the power of Joe's legs and how each climb differed, and find out a little about Reuben's chosen spec for his new bike.
Next week, Joe and Reuben will be talking about nutrition and the diet needed to perform during hill climb season.
Let us know in the comments below, and on the BikeRadar YouTube channel, about what you want to see more of in future episodes.
