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.

  • 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 Hakkal├╝gi 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
