Wood rim

As we speak a lot about how bicycle was made lately, I've come across a blog Wheel Fanatyk about bicycle wheel that was made from wood. Read HERE for more information. You also can buy their product HERE

carbon frames check

Suppose you pay a lot of money for a carbon bicycle, whether road or mountain bike. Your feeling tells you that a lot of money = lots of quality, right? Then you start riding but after a while your feel something wrong.

Or suppose you want to buy a bike through Ebay. Can you be sure that what on the surface looks like a gem is really flawless? Or they crash. Or worse, someone you loaned the bike to crashes but doesn’t tell you. How do you know the frame is still sound? The same applies after tightening the roof-rack clamp of derailleur clamp too tightly. On the surface, everything is OK but in reality the part is broken and only lasts a couple of days.

Yeti ASR Carbon enduro 2011 bike

The AS-R Carbon has wracked up more awards than any bike in Yeti’s line. I t was recently chosen Outside Magazine’s “Gear of the Year”. It was a finalist in Bicyclings “Editors Choice” this year and won the award outright in 2008.
Why all the excitement? Part of the reason is the bike is really light, fast and supe-efficient. The carbon monocoque frame and suspension have been optimized for cross-country racing and the integrated seat mast saves weight and transfers pedaling forces more efficiently than traditional seat posts. You can really feel the efficiency when you get on the gas.
But that’s just the beginning; this bike is a great descender. Yeti slackened the head tube a bit to give it amazing trail manners, even on high-speed technical descents. Some in the industry scoffed for upsetting the geometry of a cross-country bike…then it started winning awards and many followed suit. The details on this bike are worth noting as well: it has titanium fasteners, a carbon dog bone linkage, integrated composite press-in bearings and a new carbon fiber swing arm that increases the rear end stiffness and makes this bike track straight and true, even on the gnarliest descents.

  • 3.89" travel
  • High modulus, hand laid-up carbon fiber main frame
  • New carbon swing arm adds stiffness without weight increase
  • New integrated seat-clamp allows 2” (50mm) of height adjustment
  • Press-in bottom bracket cups
  • Internal cable routing on swing arm
  • Titanium hardware
  • Carbon dog bone link

  • End of Cannondale aluminium

    The end of an era has arrived at Cannondale. All aluminum frame manufacturing has ceased in Bedford, Pennsylvania, and now the auction of equipment will take place on December 9, 2010.

    It was in late 1996 when Saeco, international maker of pump-driven espresso and cappuccino machines, engaged Cannondale to sponsor its Italian-based Team Saeco professional cycling team. Cannondale became the first U.S. bicycle maker to supply frames under its own name to a European professional team.

    The 1997 cycling season became very special for Cannondale. Mario Cipollini won five stages in the Giro d’Italia, and also won two stages at the Tour de France where he also wore the yellow leader’s jersey for four days. And from there...the rest is part of cycling history.

    Don't expect to see this anymore now that production has moved to Asia

    Ibis Hakkalugi

    After a several year hiatus, the Ibis Hakkalügi cyclocross frame returns in all of its throat-clearing phlegmatic glory. This time around, we’ve added a few things and subtracted a few things.

  • Ibis has subtracted a lot of weight by making the frame out of carbon fiber. For you purists out there, sorry. For you weight weenies out there, you’re welcome.
  • Geometry is classic cyclocross. Ibis designed the frame around and mated it to a nice lightweight Alpha Q CX 20 cyclocross fork
  • Canti mounts are back AND so is the hand job cable stop, after a many year vacation from duty
  • The ‘Lugi also features strong and svelte compression molded carbon dropouts not too unlike those found on the Silk SL
  • A carbon fiber seat tube insert and some judicious carbon fiber layout ends up with this super strong frame

    This is another unusual bike, especially the custom colour and it will cost you around 650 euro for mtb and 900 euro for road... frames only. Maybe this post will give some ideas for my buddies who wanting to repaint their bicycle

    New Geox-TMC team misses the 2011 ProTour

    Spain's Geox-TMC, the team of Denis Menchov and Carlos Sastre, have missed out on a ProTeam license for 2011.And Geox-TMC, who have taken over as title sponsors from Footon-Servetto, and Cofidis were the notable omissions.It means Russian Menchov, who was third in this year's Tour de France with former team Rabobank and 2008 champion Sastre will require an invitation to compete in the Tour plus the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a Espana as a UCI Professional Continental team.

    The new Luxembourg Pro Cycling outfit, including Tour runner-up Andy Schleck, were registered along with Vacansoleil-DCM. Astana, BMC, Liguigas, HTC-Highroad, Euskaltel and Movistar - the latest incarnation of Caisse d'Epargne - also made the cut.

    Ten teams had already had their licences approved: AG2R, Katusha, Lampre, Quick Step, Saxo Bank, RadioShack, Garmin-Cervelo, Omega Pharma-Lotto, Rabobank and Sky.

    The complete list of UCI Professional Continental teams will be announced on December 10.


    Giant Anthem 29er recalled

    In co-operation with the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), Giant have recalled roughly 370 Taiwanese-built alloy Anthem X 29ers. The recall centers on a potential problem with cracking within the top tube, before the seat tube junction.The recall includes Anthem X 29er model numbers 1, 2 and 3, ranging in price between US$2,200 and $3,500. Giant can be contacted at (866) 458-2555 for further information.

    Campagnolo electronic gear part 2

    As shown in Tokyo bicycle exhibition. My prediction, the price will be much higher than the Shimano Dura ace electronic groupset...The black Pinarello also looks sexy
    A yellow jersey worn by the late Marco Pantani during his 1998 Tour de France win has been stolen from a Milan exhibition.

    The Italian cycling museum in Madonna del Ghisallo, which had lent the jersey to nearby Milan's bike and motorbike fair, has appealed for its swift return.

    Pantani, the last man to win the Giro d'Italia and Tour in the same year, died in February 2004 aged 34.

    Pantani, known as "the pirate" because of his swashbuckling style of racing and the colourful bandana he wore to cover his shaven head, was one of Italy's most popular sportsmen.

    However, his career was overshadowed by doping scandals. He was thrown out of the 1999 Giro while leading the race for failing a blood haematocrit test - an indicator, though not proof, of the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

    In 2002 he was suspended for six months after a syringe containing insulin was found in his hotel room during the 2001 Giro.

    Campagnolo electronic gear

    Campagnolo has announced that the Spanish Movistar team will be the first and only professional squad to use the Italian company's new electronic gear system in 2011. Standing by the bike are Valentino Campagnolo and Fausto Pinarello. At first look, the Campagnolo system seems very similar to the Shimano Di2, with wires replacing the gear cables and with the gear changes powered by a battery positioned on the down tube, below the bottle cage. However, instead of buttons to change gear, there are curved gear levers on the inside of brake hoods. The battery, levers and gears are labeled Campy Tech Lab, the name given to Campagnolo development division.

    The rubber shield is designed to protect your saddle from crash damage, plus it’ll keep it in good nick during uplifts and provide general scuff protection. The price should be almost the same as the saddle itself

    Time RXR Ulteam Module Plus

    Note: "Module Plus" includes matching VIP handlebar, fork, headset, seatmast, stem, and bottle cage.

    In this "VIP" edition of the RXR Ulteam frame, Time has made an elegant statement on what a beautiful bike can achieve. Finished in gloss black, all logos have a dark blue sheen that shows a subtle glimmer in the sunlight. With this clearcoat finish, you also save 40 grams over the painted version!

    Drawing inspiration from the World Championship-winning RXR Chrono, the RXR Ulteam road bike is their stiffest, most efficient race bike to date. Each tube has been optimized for performance and aerodynamics resulting in a SCx (product of frontal surface by air penetration coefficient) among the most favorable in the industry.

    This frame is the result of the best, most cutting-edge carbon manufacturing techniques of the cycling world. This machine has been optimized down to the smallest details; Time employs their special in-house carbon design and manufacturing in constructing even the smallest parts out of their own carbon weave: bottom bracket shell, one-piece fork, fork dropouts, stem with CMT insert, and even bottle cage bolts are all produced by Time's factories in Europe.

    The RXR Ulteam uses the new Safe+2 fork with multi diameter steerer guaranteeing strength, light weight and stability with exceptional steering precision. The Time patented multi diameter steerer, with Time's specific oversize lower bearing guarantees total security with outstanding resistance to shock.

    The RXR Ulteam uses a new optimized "Translink" aerodynamic shape seat tube with 3 cm of saddle height adjustment. This design not only increases lateral stiffness, but is also 35 grams lighter than the traditional seatpost. The RXR Ulteam also offers 2 front derailleur height options for compatibility to the broadest gearing ranges.

    RXR Ulteam Features:

  • Sloping geometry in 6 sizes
  • Optimized tube designs in HM Carbon with Vibraser liquid crystal polyamide fibers and aramid fibers.
  • Full carbon lugs
  • Optimized full carbon bottom bracket shell
  • Optimized Translink seat tube
  • Optimized RXR Ulteam wishbone
  • Asymmetrical chainstays
  • Specific one piece monobloc carbon fork with multidiameter steerer
  • CMT fork dropouts
  • Quickset headset with oversize lower bearing
  • Monolink RXR Ulteam carbon stem with CMT insert
  • CMT seatpost head and saddle cradle
  • Removable aluminum front derailleur mount
  • Aluminum 7075 T6 brake fixing nuts
  • Carbon bottle cage bolts
  • Matching VIP Carbon bottle cage

    The RXR Ulteam is available in two configurations: Module, and Module+. For riders interested in the matching TIME handlebar, upgrading to Module+saves 20% on price.

    "Module"Includes frame, fork, headset, seatpost, Monolink carbon stem, and Time carbon bottle cage.
    "Module+" Includes frame, fork, headset, seatpost, Monolink carbon stem, Time carbon bottle cage, and Time Ergoforce Monobloc handlebars.

  • Di Luca race again

    Danilo Di Luca has had his two-year doping ban reduced to 15 months by an anti-doping tribunal at the Italian Olympic Committee.

    Di Luca was banned after testing positive for EPO-Cera after finishing second in the 2009 Giro d'Italia.

    However, his collaboration with investigators probing doping in cycling has led to a reduction in his sentence that was initially set to run until July 2011.

    Di Luca said he had spoken to the prosecutor in Padua "to explain the methodologies that I've seen".

    The 34-year-old, who won Liège–Bastogne–Liège and the Giro in 2007, is cleared to race immediately and has been linked with a move to Geox who will take over sponsorship of ProTour team Footon-Servetto in 2011.
