World's fastest bike?

image

Nyah-NyahOK… Every once in a while a story like this come along. The creators of this bike have laid claim to it being the worlds fastest bike… based on wind tunnel data. Now they may have a legitimate claim to this fame, if there were world events specifically setup to compare bikes exclusively in a wind tunnel competition.Smile with tongue outTo me a bike or device is only as fast as it’s engine propels it. Still, the story does have some interesting aspects on how they designed the bike and it’s worth while reading. Lastly, the question is………. will it be legal to use in various bicycle federation events???Surprised smile

OK… a little strange here; but I can sympathize with cyclists trying to stay dry, but also the issue of having only one hand on your handlebars when it’s wet???Surprised smileThe poncho attire seems to be something to look into though. Here’s the link to read more about this.Nerd smile

Man adds warning paint to sunken grate, state roads agency calls it vandalism! :-((((((((((((((((((((((

image

Surprised smileWTF??? You truly have to be kidding me! I think the warning paint for gratings and Ft. Lauderdale meter holesAnnoyed is a GREAT idea! Oregon State Road agency should take note of this, because it might just save THEM and the state a hefty lawsuit via a cyclist that might get injured by that thing and take legal action! BUT… the agency labels it as vandalism?Steaming mad DUMB ASSES! But that’s OK, after they get to endure a few (Again) lawsuits, maybe their DA attitude will  change! What’s that saying; stupid is, stupid does?Thumbs up Here’s the link to read more about this.

Another Bent manufacturer closing it’s doors………. :-(((

gggggggggggggg

Sadly, I believe there will be MORE of this news, in the near future. Their bikes weren’t the sleekest or fastest; but they were excellent utility / consumer types of bikes with a lot of unique innovation built into them. Here’s the link to this sad story…Crying face

The Bike Industry is Sick(?) No… It’s (SADLY) nearing DEATH! :-(

image

One of my favorite websites, Bike Shop Girl posted a rather interesting article, the Bike Industry is Sick and Hiring More Women Won’t Fix It.Surprised smileApparently women have not faired well in the industry and this article brings a lot of that out into the open. To be honest, I was not aware of this issue. (DUMBO Biker here… ;-)

Sadly, I wish the bicycle industry was ONLY sick; but it’s a lot worse than that.Disappointed smileAnyone that has kept up with my blog posts over the years, should know that I’m a strong believer of something called “Signs”. (See my link and link on this) When a series of things start consistently happening; it’s time to step back and get a serious READ on possible pending events!Confused smileSome of those… signs have recently been posted, like a local recumbent bike shop closing it’s doors (After 47 years in business) and a widely know bike shock absorber company, likely ceasing operation. I have started networking with other local bike shops (To see if any will service my bent) and surprisingly a few that before wouldn’t even let you bring a bent bicycle in side) are actually receptive to doing recumbent bike repairs! Some bike shop owners are realizing that even unreal… bicycles represent “Business aka $$$ income” coming through their doors. But more signs are appearing as well. One long time shop owner made a startling revelation. In the past we use to have a high volume of parents bringing their kids in, to purchase bicycles. That’s just NOT happening anymore. We likewise are beginning to get inquiries about electronic bicycles or e-bikes; along with a few incoming for repairs. In a previous post, I also reported on possible “Mechanical doping” aka adding small motors to TDF (Tour de France) bicycles.

These and a lot more signs continue to make themselves known. I’m truly going to miss hpv (Human Powered Vehicle) bicycling!Crying face
