HELLO HAMBINI FANS!!!! AND WELCOME
Welcome to the Hambini Website, the home of precision engineering, high grade roastings and full on engineering reamings smattered with hints of sarcasm and engineering wit.
A selection of popular products from the Hambini Webshop. You will find a selection of bearings, tools and bottom brackets. If there is something you cannot find or have a query with. Please use the contact page.
This bargain Velobuild Pinarello lookalike bike frame arrived at Hambini HQ with high expectations. They were quickly dashed when a string of faults was found, accompanied by fairly comical claims of what is and is not acceptable by QA standards.
The winspace T1500 is the flagship Chinese Aero road bike. This review documents 5000km of general riding including commuting, racing and training.
ComePLAY handlebars arrived at Hambini HQ for some testing, expectations were quite low but they performed extremely well. A test of their stiffness and strength showed them to be considerably stronger than some boutique Italian aluminium bars.
This post provided aerodynamic performance data for wheels using disc brakes.
This buyer’s guide will allow you to make an informed choice about purchasing a set of new racing bicycle wheels. It covers the main points to consider when purchasing from a technical perspective.
This post covers the the technical details of wider tires and rims with regards aerodynamics, rolling resistance and some Noise Vibration and Harshness
Cycling aerodynamics in recent times has been dominated by “wind tunnel data” used by vendors to highlight the benefits of their particular wheel or frameset. This data has often been shrouded in marketing spin accompanied by some lavish blurb about yaw angles. However, there has been a recent trend towards discounting this data or at…
AbsoluteBLACK (real name LUCID IP SLU registered in Andorra) were destroyed on social media after their claims about ceramic bearings, power savings and watts were questioned. They systematically curated both their own social media accounts and comments on other accounts. They removed large numbers of comments that questioned their aerodynamic and power claims
Over several years, bike wheels have been tested for aerodynamic performance. To date, this is the largest independent dataset available. Popular brands such as DT Swiss, SwissSide, Shimano, Mavic and Bontrager have all been tested. This dataset was originally derived from wind tunnel test data but has latterly moved over to Dinitriev number with a…
