Cool, but it looks like you'd have to remove the crank to change the ring, not a lot of fun between heats I'd imagine!

The handlebars are interesting, but it looks like you'd slam your knees into them when sprinting out of the saddle.
I'll have to look for a video of them in use.

The cranks pictured are 175 mm - so maybe these were road TT cranks.

Some interesting kit at the Glasgow world cup.

The spider isn't shown here, but they run an integrated srm which probably won't be shown

I'm guessing it's a lot easier when you have multiple bikes and a mechanic doing the work for you :lol:

Aergo (Look) extensions have been out a while now. They are a fairly neat concept, but for most of us the fact that we would have to deal with LOOK is a dealbreaker when you need very specific replacement parts. The "next" thing in aero extensions is integration with the forearm, another few months and we'll have fairly readily available off the shelf solutions (Testing Drag2Zero's, they are pretty nice to not be custom) that will work with non-proprietary cockpits.

A lot of the new 3D printed parts / drops look good, some (like the madison bars) are pretty single purpose, but that's fine at high level. It's exciting as 3d printing tech starts trickling down. We're still a few years away from it being accessible to mortals, but big steps are being taken every year (I have actually seen some new metal filament that is supposed to work on home 3d printers fairly well, that's huge!)

Nitto now offers 31.8mm Carbon B123 in 37, 38, 39, and 40cm widths called "B123CB". Interesting.

It's interesting that they call them new, three years after introduction. Also interesting that they're priced above $400USD, holy shnikees.

Really? 3 years? Ha! I hadn't seen them and saw the "New" on the site and thought they were new.

The Nitto website seems like the kind of site that some old school "webmaster" updates by manually typing HTML in Notepad. Updates are few and far between.

...I wouldn't be surprised if there was a hit counter at the bottom of each page :roflmao2:

After reading that, I'm imagining me and you at a bar, trying to pick up girls...

A couple of cuties start walking over, and as they get closer they overhear what you just said, look at each other, roll their eyes, do a one-eighty, and walk away. :lol:

Baby Puke 11-13-19 08:48 PM

I wish Nitto would model these on the 125 bar instead, then charge half the price. I would totally buy.

Believe me, that's happened to me.

Come to find out, regression testing horror stories aren't the popular first date conversation as I thought it would be :foo:

Yeah, I think 125 is the sweet spot. They are nearly the exact same width, reach, and drop as the Scattos. While we are asking, they should do 32, 33, 34, 35, and 36cm. No need to go to 40. That bar would be stiff as hell.

We have our own Big Bang Theory show right here.

I think you should have some pre-qualification questions prior to any first dates, to establish correct audience segmentation and conversion rate optimization. Next app, perhaps? :D

That's literally what I do these days, but for a sorta household name company.

Big data analysis, data engineering, large scale ETL, Oracle, SQL Server, BigQuery, Google Analytics, SalesForce, Tableau, etc (all on a daily basis). To rephrase Baranoski's, "I don't touch any gears under 100 inches.", "I do't touch any datasets under 100 million records." :lol:

So. Tired.

You're not even typing these posts, you've programmed an AI Carleton that looks like you to respond on your behalf. Which seems really brilliant. Until it teaches itself how to ride a bike, takes you out and steals your rig.

Bastion Cycles has created the world’s most expensive 3D-printed stem that costs a staggering $1,399.00.

According to Bastion, its new stem is made from Ti6AI4V/Grade 5 titanium, which is designed to work specifically with Argon 18’s Electron Pro track frame.

Bastion says the stem is available in a number of stack heights, and in lengths up to 160mm with an angle of +17/-17 degrees.

Created in collaboration with Cycling Australia, the stem was developed to be used by the Australian national track cycling team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Looks like something Cinelli made in the 90's.

I have one on my road bike. Who says 1" threadless is pointless?
