Cranked #26 is all about challenging preconceptions. Steve Peat lets us into his home and gives us a guided tour of some of his favourite bits of mountain bike memorabilia, while Henry Iddon meets the women and men putting their lives on the line to rescue injured riders and Antony de Heveningham speaks to two racers fighting for acceptance as trans women. Meanwhile Jon Sparks blows apart some e-mtb assumptions, Scott Beaumont wins in 60 seconds and Markus Stitz finds a challenging ride on his doorstep. Nudge your boundaries.
