Suitably nerdy

Some super nerdy reading for you.

I've updated Vallie components, and published an article on the torque testing of some M5 bolts.

I've also found this really interesting article on chain wear measurement.

I also found out about Civia Cycle's Halstead cycletruck:

Yeah.. I pretty much spend my time online looking at pages like this.

...and who can forget the 'stringbike'. We had an interesting fellow come into the shop the other day and tell us about it. I had previously read the article and seen the animations, so I knew what he was talking about.. but it was super funny to hear his strange Hungarian pride when telling me of it.

Okay.. back to work.

Only In Italy...

This one fully qualifies for WMD's category of "so fucking lame but somehow so fucking cool"... for me it evokes images of the early days of the current fixed gear movement, with many of the moves looking like the oh-so-awkward skid variations.

And if you thought that was embarrassing, check out this video from March 2007.
