With the expected growth in the e-bike market, local transportation looks a lot more like an e-bike than a car. And much like the conversation around electric vehicles, this means millions of e-bike batteries once they hit their end of life.
Ares is the ancient Greek god of war and courage, often portrayed as the personification of sheer brutality and the physical valor needed for success in war. If that sounds like what it takes to win bunch sprints in the pro peloton, then Ares is an apt name for the newest member of the Specialized S-Works family of road cycling shoes.
In today's Readers' Rigs we have two Specialized Allez Sprints for the price of one! Corey and Lucia featured their special steeds in the 'To be Determined Journal' and thought they would be a perfect fit for PEZ Readers' Rigs. Two very special Specialized.
Something a bit different this week: A full on time trial machine. We take a close look at British and World Transplant Championship winner Graham Strugnell’s Dolan Scala TT machine. Nothing off the peg here - Equipment selected for aero efficiency and functionality. It's fast and it looks good too!
It's Friday and time for another look at what's new on the cycling market: Pro Team Full Frame glasses by Rapha, fizik expands its Adaptive Line with two new options, Campagnolo new Shamal Carbon disk brake wheels, Specialized Sagan collection, the new KASK Mojito³ and Bernard Hinault Tour de France fanwear pack.
Once upon a time bicycles were pretty much built out of steel. Sure, there had been forays into wood, aluminum and even carbon fibre, but steel was real pretty much into the 1990s. A shift began that saw oversize aluminum tubing, titanium impressed, while carbon bikes made a splash with triathletes. Greg LeMond, an early adopter, rode a carbon bike at the Tour de France.
Not before time; we have an e-bike Readers' Rig. John in South Carolina has sent us photos of his Specialized Creo SL Expert... It has the look, it has the power and for a big bike it's not that heavy. Is this the future for many of us that want to stay active, what do you think?
