Wooden Bicycle: From Design to Ride – YouTube

First Ride: Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 Hydro |

Here’s an exposè and first ride on the all new Dura-Ace Di2 Disk Brake setup. Pretty impressive with “intelligent” shifting and integrated power meter. Feast your eyes and dream on. At around $3,000, you better have a pretty good engine to justify the price.

I was looking for a clean way to mount an item on my bike and found this guy. He offers a pretty comprehensive variety of different types of mounts for action cams, computers, lights and other junk we need to mount. Everything is offered in a various colors, materials and finishes. They are a bit pricey and you can’t be in a hurry because they’re made on demand using 3d printers. Turnaround time is about 2 weeks.

From Concept to Ride

Aaron Holmes did a really interesting presentation on his Black Walnet bike last Tuesday, January 10th at the Wooster Library. He started with the concept, research and design process. Then he showed photos of the step-by-step evolution of turning 4/4 boards into a built up, laminated wook frame. He brought along the templates he used to hollow out the insides and someo of the scrap pieces showing the laminations and rough look of the frame before sculpting, sanding and finishing. This was probably the best two hours of the entire winter so far (outside of the holidays). Thanks Aaron for a great evening.
