SRAM created the XDR and XD drivers to allow us to run cassettes that had cogs with less than 11 teeth, which is great if you want to go and run a 1x drive train and still have a big top gear. It will help to eliminate the topping out that some of us were getting on the flat and the much more likely topping out when we were descending.
Will we abandon the FL series wheelset or just let them remain like before? The answer is no. Although our customers are almost satisfied with the FL series, we still want to make some improvement of these wheels. We always commit ourselves to provide customers with a wonderful shopping experience and products of high quality. In addition to the new AERO series, ICAN would still upgrade the FL series this year. FL series and AERO series would both be our mainstay products in 2019！
There is a problem in transportation problem called the last mile problem. When the last mile problem is used around transport, it has to do with how do people get the final mile from a bus or train station to work. The obvious answer for us cyclists is a bike.
The bike trade is also keen on this, so there are a plethora of solutions for urban riding. You can get a folding bike. You could get a hybrid. The problem with these solutions is that they are sometimes a bit subdued. They are too utilitarian, they seem to have had their soul sucked out and the fun of cycling removed.
We felt this could be rectified. We want you to ride to work and feel so exhilarated from your ride that the rest of the day melts away on the high you’re feeling. We want you to fly through traffic. To feel the wind rush through your hair. Your bike to make you smile from ear to ear, we want cycling to make you remember what it feels like to be a child again.
Aero is where all the new and significant developments are happening in road cycling. If you check the cycling media, you’ll find all kinds of high-end aero bikes gracing their coverage. The problem is that many of these products are beyond what we can all afford.
Sure, all of us would like a $10,000 aero road bike but that is a huge chunk of our earnings, and many of us would still love to do things such as eat. Yes, people want us to attain and do the best we can and then buy the very best but can we go aero without bankrupting ourselves?
Everyone is talking about tire size in road biking and gravel grinding. We have started to discover that wider tires don’t mean less speed. They can bring more speed and, possibly, more importantly, they bring more comfort.
The problem is how do you know what size of tires you need? What tires will fit the rims that you ride? What exactly is the size of my tires? Tires have a lot of sizing information written on their sides and knowing what it means can be elusive. We’ve thought about this and decided to create you a handy guide for tire sizing.
Weight weenies was originally a pejorative term for people who got too obsessed by the weight of their bike. They were considered to spend more time worrying about the weight of their bike rather than riding their bike. They would pay thousands of dollars to get a bike a few grams lighter, even if it sacrificed comfort.
The weight weenie for many cyclists was a person with more money than sense. Though now by using the weight weenies forum you’ll find that people who care about the weight of their bike have been retaking the term. Many though still spend way more money than they should in order to have a light bike.
