Looking at Stems

I came across this Tumblr site “Chris Froome Looking at Stems” last night. Laughed my head off.  Well worth a look.

Here are some of the photos, but many more on the Tumblr site.

Bike Spike

I like this.

BS_Side-and-Front BS-and-Cage-e1379456251755

The BikeSpike is a hardware/software solution that helps you recover your bike if it gets stolen, notifies you if someone begins to tamper with it and sends an alert to key contacts if you’re in an accident. Share your bike’s location and full profile over Facebook, Twitter and with our global community of cyclists.

ZoneManagement

The BikeSpike uses a combination of GPS technology to locate your bike and cellular technology to share that location in real time. This allows you to see where your bike is at any point in time via the web application or the mobile application, whether it is safely locked in the garage or flying down the street between the legs of a bike thief.

Exert from “Great Legs Need A Great Mind” By Chris Lyman – Cycling Illustrated

“The mental preparation for racing is just as important as physical”…

Race IQ: the bane of existence of those who don’t have it, but for certain something we all want; the experience, instinct, smarts and cunning key to being first across the line.

Racing is all about patience, you need to wait for the right time to strike and then do it definitively,”

“If you’re hurting so is everybody; when you go it will deflate them. They don’t know that you’re hurting as much as they are.”

Those possessing high race IQ also have a sense of not only their limits but also competitor’s.

What can you do improve your race IQ?  For starters:

  • Know what you can do by practicing race scenarios in drop-rides and local races
  • Pick the right moment to make a move. Be patient until it’s time not to be
  • Know your competitors strengths & weaknesses as it relates to the day’s parcours
  • Race forward, especially when the race is hard or selective
  • Take notes, with a mental highlighter or otherwise, on successes and failures. Learn from them
  • Keep perspective and have fun – most of us are living “glory days”

安全性に特化させたLEDグローブライト

本来、道路交通法により自転車走行時には右左折・停止を行う際に手信号、もしくは方向指示器、灯火により後方車両に合図を送る必要があります。
しかし多くのライダーにとって手信号の認識は薄く、夜間走行での手信号は視認性の低さにより逆に危険を招く可能性があります。

LEDグローブライトを使用することで、より安全な走行を促進すると同時に自転車のマナー運転向上を促す製品です。

希望小売価格:
4,000円(税込み4,200円)
カラー:
DA050GL:ブラック×オレンジ
