As an avid cycling enthusiast and an engineering (s)expert, I was thrilled to be part of Eurobike, the world’s leading cycling trade fair. This event was a unique blend of innovation and tradition, attracting cycling aficionados from all corners of the globe. My presence there, brought an additional layer of excitement for those who followed…
Blind bearing pullers, initially created to remove bearings from rotating equipment without rear access, have been popularized for removing wheel bearings. Despite their increased use, these tools can inflict unnoticed damage on wheels. Primarily deployed in automotive and machinery maintenance, blind bearing pullers slide through the bearing, expand behind it, and retract, exerting a steady force without damaging surrounding areas. However, concerns arise when these tools are used without considering potential damage to internal preload spacers, causing potential legal repercussions for negligent installation in professional settings.
The cycling market is taking a hammering at the moment with a drop in demand, a massive drop in sales and general discontent. I thought it would be a great time for me to expand! More on this will be coming soon! I’ve started making some BSA bottom brackets (30mm and SRAM DUB/AXS) in Titanium….
Introduction I have had a number of cyclists contact me with issues around NTN and SKF bearings being fitted at bike shops and failing within a fairly short period of time. A number of these cyclists have sent me the bearings back to look at and I have found a large number of bearings to…
T47 is examined in engineering detail. Some of the quirks associated with the standard, the weights and the frame geometry limitations are discussed. Trek, Felt and Factor variations of T47 dimensional standars are covered.
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
This blog post will cover the installation of a Hambini Bottom Bracket in a Winspace T1500 Aero bike frame. It covers the bike frame, the bottom bracket selection and the potential problems that may arise.
Introduction Winspace is a company based in Xiamen, China that has come from virtually totally unknown outside of it’s home market to being quite a dominant player in the world of high performance bicycle wheels. Two years ago, the original Hyper 50 wheel was released to the public, since it’s initial released it has gained…
This is a review of the Farsports Ventoux S series wheels. These are the first wheels that Farsports have offered with carbon spokes and a new shielded hub design
This article is a technical discussion of the pros and cons of using grease or retaining compound for installation of bearings and bottom brackets. A general trend in recent times has been a move towards slacker fits. This improves performance and service life.
