That reminds me of the melting policeman from Terminator 2
Melting forks were around a long time ago it seems .check this Bates.
The Bates 'diadrant' fork offered zero real advantage. The main purpose of the curvy frames of that era was brand recognition (see also Hetchins and others). Just like today they claimed their frames had magical properties and just like today, they didn't. Call me a cynic (because I am) but there's probably an Ineos contract clause forbidding criticism of their frame sponsor.
I agree with that no real gains .just there trade mark.
I heard that Bates and Hetchins story as well.
I had a Dogma2 and it was the best frame I have ever been on. It was heavy but I live on the prairies.
This 3d printed chain keeper
Hacks and bodges thread surely, wouldn't call that particularly good looking personally.
Also, do chains still come off with a clutched derailleur and a narrow wide chainring?
I dunno, I assume it's a belts and braces approach. (It's Clara Honsigner's bike - https://cyclingtips.com/2020/12/cyclocross-diaries-the-americans-in-belgium/)
I think it looks beautiful, like a mini brancusi
Is this the new ‘no shift’ technology SRAM FD? Years of experience will have gone into the development
The right consistency mud will definitely throw the chain off.
If I am not mistaken, loads of xc racers are using of front chain guide.
David Millar's Slipstream
I agree, not porn, but 7800 looks great on that bike.
He should have used that helmet in 1989 eh?
This is nice but the discs being slightly different would drive me nuts.
I actually have the DVD.
And I use that expression almost daily.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
