New Web Site

The new web site is coming live in bits and pieces. Don't be surprised to find some dead links, empty pages, and even duplicate pages.

Travelling faster on ones bike requires better overcoming the forces opposing the bike/rider combination.

 

Some of these forces are:

Wind resistance/drag

Rolling resistance

Mechanical inefficiencies

Biomechanical inefficiencies

 

To travel faster one can either exert more force/work harder or reduce the effect of these opposing forces.

 

Most of the force that one exerts goes toward overcoming the effects of wind resistance/drag. This increases exponentionally with increases in velocity. One can spend $10,000 on a new aero bike with aero wheels, but some of the greatest improvements can be had for free or for very little money.

 

 

 

 

We're in the process of updating.

Thanks for your patience.
