  2. Hambini vs Flo Cycling...

    I do not usually write this type of post but I wanted to clear a few things up. I am an engineer by training and one of my weaknesses is I am unable to articulate myself as well as I would like. This is mainly because English is not my native language. There have been a lot of negative words exchanged between myself and FLO cycling about their wheels and I wanted to clear a few things up.

    My engineering is Genuine

    A key fact that seems to have been glossed over is when a set of FLO wheels was originally tested, the results were kept private and I went to lengths to contact FLO cycling to inform them that their wheels had performed badly. I waited a number of weeks and received no reply. I took the view that as a comparative nobody in the cycling industry they did not really care. So I proceeded to publish the results on my blog.

    At this point FLO got interested – they did not want the negative publicity a

  3. Hambini SRAM Dub Bottom Brackets

    For the past few months I have been working with NTN and one of my racing teams in developing a bottom bracket suitable for SRAM dub cranksets. SRAM's Dub is their current bottom bracket standard which uses a 29mm (28.99mm) axle with a bearing landing spacing of ~90mm. The 29mm bore diameter is non standard and no tier 1 bearing manufacturer makes a bearing with a bore of this size.

    In order to accommodate the axle a thin delrin insert was required. This had the advantage of prolonging crank life because the hardened bearing did not come into contact with the relatively soft crank axle. The technical difficulty was manufacturing an insert of only 0.5mm wall thickness at a nominal diameter of 30mm. My competitors were using blow moulded nylon inserts but I found the tolerances on these to be quite poor. Instead I elected to machine the adaptors in delrin. New jigs

  4. Site Upgrades - Disqus

    As part of my on going efforts to upgrade the website, I have ditched the facebook plugin to comment on blog posts. I am now using Disqus. This prevents non Facebook users from being alienated. As a result, previous comments have now disappeared. 

    Thanks
