  2. Dacă auzeai mai des de Muc-Off când venea vorba de produse de curățare și întreținere pentru biciclete, de acum înainte vei putea auzi și despre hainele pe care aceștia le produc special pentru mountainbikeri. Desigur, nu este vorba despre orice fel de haine, ci despre unele impermeabile, de mare ajutor în zilele ploioase sau noroioase. Prima pe listă este jacheta, Technical Riders Jacket, care pe lângă faptul că arată cool – integrând perfect partea de imagine a Muc-Off, are și o impermeabilitate mare de 20.000mm și o respirabilitate cu aceeași valoare (dar nu în mm). Materialul este totuși foarte flexibil și este croit ergonomic, pentru confort sporit. Va avea două buzunare laterale și unul la piept, plus multe alte spații de depozitare a diferitelor obicete. Jacheta este prevăzută și cu aerisiri, în cazul în care te supraîncingi sau devine brusc prea cald afară (să nu uităm totuși că este neagră). Aerisirile se află sub brațe și pot fi deschise cu ajutorul unui fermoar. Disponibilă în dimensiuni de la XS pânș la XXL, aceasta va avea un preț recomandat de 214 euro. O pereche de pantaloni care să se potrivească cu jacheta este de asemenea disponibilă. Se numește Technical Riders Shorts și împarte de principiu aceleași calități cu jacheta, așa cum era de așteptat. Trei buzunare cu fermoar sunt disponibile, în dimensiuni de la XS la XXL. Costul de achiziție va fi de 98 de euro. Pentru zilele uscate există o bluză cu mânecă lungă, aerisită și flexibilă, dar care poate fi achiziționată și în versiunea cu mânecă scurtă. Un material care ajută la curățarea lentilei ochelarilor este integrat cu fiecare bluză. Varianta cu mânecă lungă va costa 56 de euro, pe când cea cu mânecă scurtă, 49 de euro. Ultimele, dar nu cele din urmă, sunt mănușile. Combinația de culori este demențială, au design Slip-On și sunt prevăzute în partea superioară cu un material 4-Way-Strech, așadar pe scurt – unul care se întinde eficient. Are silicon pe degete și pe palmă pentru extra-adevrență și pot fi folosite cu ecranul tactil al smartphone-ului. Costul de achiziție va fi de 37 de euro. Sursa: Freerider
  3. There are some interesting rumours circulating about Suzuki, and they paint a slightly conflicted picture. First up, the semi-annual Hayabusa revival rumours are floating about again. Although the Hayabusa is still an extremely powerful motorcycle, it’s no longer the king of hyperbikes. Kawasaki’s supercharged H2R line has taken that role, and even the latest crop of litre-class superbikes mostly makes around 200 hp, with far less weight than the once-feared ‘Busa. Word on the street is that Suzuki plans to revamp the Hayabusa, and for at least four years now, we’ve been told it’s coming next season, by supposedly in-the-know insiders. Well, it hasn’t happened yet. The updated bike is supposedly going to have a semi-auto gearbox, and there are occasionally rumours about a supercharger. Truth? Fiction? Hard to say, but we certainly haven’t seen any spy shots, just an endless stream of patent applications, which really don’t guarantee anything. On to the next rumour! This week, the hot gossip said Suzuki is planning to end production of the big-bore Burgman 650 scooter, revising the Burgman 400 and rebadging it into a new line. Fact or fiction? This one is most likely a fairly accurate guess. The Burgman 650 isn’t selling well in some markets, and has been discontinued in others. It’s getting to be an older design, and even though there are few other machines in this bracket, there’s also not a whole lot of people in need of a 650-class maxi-scooter. With BMW now in this market as well, no doubt it’s getting tough to scrap it out for sales. And with the 400 version, it’s a single-cylinder and no doubt would need some tuning changes to meet future emissions regs. That is, after all, the way the world is going, and Suzuki seems to recognize that—slowly, gasoline-powered motorcycles are being pushed out. Despite the constant demand for new technology and more performance, the reality of market finances make it hard to justify, when you can just crank out an exponentially larger number of small-capacity bikes and sell them like mad in emerging markets. Suzuki’s execs are reportedly wanting to do just that, basically getting out of the big-bike business altogether, which would certainly explain an awful lot about the company’s moves in recent years.

  4. Anunțată de anul trecut, noua bicicletă a fraților Atherton este în sfârșit disponibilă pentru achiziție. A trecut prin multe faze, prin multe sesiuni de test și prin multe etape de Campionate Mondiale, iar în acest moment primele 50 de cadre sunt disponibile doar pentru adevărații fani, adică să fie deja înscriși pe lista de mail Attheron Bikes. Cine nu s-a înscris, va trebui să aștepte până în primăvara 2020 pentru a achiziționa unul. Vor fi disponibile pentru început două variante, una pentru enduro cu roți de 28 de inch și suspensii de 150mm și una pentru downhill. Cadrul pentru enduro va putea fi achiziționat pentru 3.400 de lire sterline, iar bicicleta completă va porni de la 5.500 de lire sterline, pe când cea de downhill, va avea un preț de pornire de 6.000 de lire sterline. 13 luni a durat dezvoltarea celor două biciclete, iar informații exacte despre geometrie sau greutate nu au fost momentan făcute publice.

  5. Jeffsy, Jeffsy… cine n-a auzit de Jeffsy? Un model extrem de popular însă care nu era disponibil pentru toată lumea. Mai precis, nu pentru cei mici. YT a luat însă decizia de a construi o versiune cu roți de 24, respectiv 26 de inch, iar astfel tinerele talente să se bucure de același agregat precum talente ceva mai în vârstă. În orice caz, o mișcare de așteptat din partea celor de la YT, mai ales că noul Primus poate fi comandat chiar și cu echipări mai serioase, precum o transmisie cu 12 pinioane. Versiunea cu roțile de 26 de inch.O singură dimensiune de cadru va fi disponibilă, însă va compensa cu cele două diametre de roată diferite. Astfel, modelul cu roți de 24 de inch acoperă înălțimea dintre 135 și 150cm, pe când cel cu roți de 26 de inch, înălțimea unui copil între 145 și 160cm. În acest sens, bicicleta poate deveni foarte atractivă și pentru fetele mai mici de înălțime, dacă-mi permiteți acest sfat. Nici la capitolul greutate bicicleta nu stă rău deloc, deși modelul cu roți de 24 de inch este semnificativ mai ușor: 12.4 kg față de 14.2 kg (26)! Suspensia va fi aceeași V4L, cu amortizorul fixat pe downtube-ului cadrului, iar cursa pentru modelul de 24 va fi de 130mm, pe când cea pentru modelul de 26, va fi de 140mm. Sloganul acela le va merge cu siguranță la suflet, copiiilor.În ceea ce privește prețurile, acestea se armonizează cu ceea ce oferă concurența, cu mențiunea unui minus important dacă îl raportăm la echipare: 1.899 de euro (24), respectiv 1.999 de euro (26). Harry Schofield ne arată cum se face…Geometria mizează pe un headtube amplasat la 65.5 grade, pentru ambele variante, 395mm fiind lungimea chainstay-ului pentru roata de 24 și 415mm pentru roata de 26. Reach-ul este de 370, respectiv 397mm. Dacă varianta cu roți de 24 de inch va avea o transmisie 1×11 – Sram NX, versiunea cu roțile mai mari va fi echipată cu o transmisie 1×12 – entry-level-ul Sram SX – de aici posibil și greutatea totală semnificativ mai mare (pe lângă roțile care atârnă mai greu pe cântar).

  7. Motocicleta mea - Ural M72

    Am cumparat de la Ural Zentrale o replica de aripa spate: https://www.ural-zentrale.de/en/body/wing/m72/rear-mudguard-m72-reproduction . Am aripa de spate originala de M72 dar mai trebuie lucrata si in afara de asta as vrea sa o folosesc la un proiect viitor care va fi o resturare de M72, cred ca la fel voi proceda si cu aripa de fata pe care o am acum si pe care as putea sa o imlocuiesc cu o replica:
  8. As riders, we have excellent network connectivity choices. We can update loved ones, navigate precisely, and avoid challenges with deteriorating weather and road conditions. Where will the next decade take us? Time to dream big riders. The sky is literally the limit. First, we’ll review where we are today, then let’s look at the technology on the horizon and finally we can speculate wildly! A partial map of the internet from 2005 shows just how interconnected we are with the number of devices and paths between them expanding constantly. Internet Connectivity Showing Class C Networks. Endpoints are IP devices with lines representing delay. (Image: © Creative Commons | The Opte Project) Today, our mobile phones provide unprecedented ride intelligence. In urban centers, they remove language barriers and help locate needed services. Programs for navigation provide simple, near-global route mapping. These packages each have strengths and weaknesses so keeping multiple navigation apps loaded and ready to go is wise. Wide area terrestrial telecom coverage for adventure riders improves every day but there are many times when we lack LTE coverage. Packages such as maps.me and Google Maps provide offline modes where prior downloaded maps and the inherent GPS capabilities of the device keep us located and navigating. Waze is inherently online and is worth having for use in traffic given its real-time updates, slick user interface and for me, visual integration with Spotify. Here’s a quick overview of maps.me. I used this navigation app across the steppes in Mongolia and it consistently guided me to my destination even when several similar looking tracks would fan out toward the horizon. The video is for hiking trails but the same applies to obscure tracks in all corners of the globe. [embedded content] Google Maps is a global standard. Check out Zac’s recent article on Google Maps Updated Look. Oddly, when I rode in Morocco Google Maps simply didn’t work, not even in offline mode. Luckily Waze did work which was a pleasant surprise. Once I had the package on my phone, I enjoyed its slick presentation and real-time updates. Check it out: [embedded content] I gloss over the fact that throughout Asia, Europe and my travels in North Africa buying a SIM card at every border is a given. Month-long deals are available for the equivalent of 10-20USD. In Morocco, I pulled into the first gas station off the ferry and lined up for my cheap virtual tether to the world. For the real cheapskates out there (of which I am one) every MacDonald’s on earth has free Wifi and once you are recognized at one you are known to all. When I passed through the Baltics I waited until Germany to buy a SIM card. It’s great to have choices! For solo riders, who travel beyond LTE coverage, today’s options for “always-on” connectivity are satellite-based. Let’s face it, this is a safety and peace of mind issue for ourselves and loved ones at home. These devices range from affordable simple transmit location plus a pair of status messages (I’m safe, or, Send Help) to expensive voice and low data rate satellite hotspots and phones. At entry-level, there are good choices. For example, SPOT from Globalstar comes in under 150USD equipment cost with annual subscription packages around the same 150USD mark. Here’s an overview of SPOT (do a local search for SPOT service provider monthly rates in your area). I carried this device and when I’d use it to transmit the occasional “I’m OK” message it was quick and intuitive. The video is a bit goofy but it does give a nice overview of the device. [embedded content] Here is a SPOT coverage map: GlobalStar Coverage Map. Move up the cost/functionality curve and check out the Iridium GO which provides a satellite-based hotspot for your mobile phone. The Iridium GO device will cost around 700USD with monthly plans starting at 25USD with many choices in how you expect to connect and use bandwidth. [embedded content] Here is the Iridium coverage map. It is very Global and is getting a lot of attention in the offshore sailing community. Iridium Global Connectivity. Source: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Iridium_Coverage_Animation.gif When will the cost/performance curve for satellite connectivity cross over into the mainstream personal telecommunications making the goal of truly global connectivity affordable to adventure riders? First a review of the technology. In his article, Starlink is a Big Deal, Jeffrey Paul gives a great summary of satellite communications today and how we got here. There are some exciting changes coming from satellite technology. At the turn of the century funding cuts at NASA pushed space exploration into the private sector. Elon Musk and SpaceX will sling your Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite a few hundred miles into space for a fraction of what it cost a decade ago. Soon, SpaceX Starlink and others: OneWeb, Amazon Blue Origin, and Telesat Canada, will have powerful constellations of LEO satellites orbiting just a few hundred miles above the earth. These new LEO constellations won’t be the dreary weather sensors and spy eyes of the past, rather some are positioning powerful IP routers in space. LEO constellations minimize delay due to a shorter round trip as compared to geosynchronous satellites which orbit at 27,000 miles above us. These LEO routers will also have deep buffers for data and digital signal processor (DSP) based echo cancellers for voice. Current and previous generations of communications satellites were referred to as “bent pipe”, meaning no onboard processing but these next-generation birds are giving companies like cisco a new market segment. Back on earth, if adventure riders are to be afforded cheap, ubiquitous, high bandwidth global connectivity it will first have to work for cars. Connected cars would provide the volume to drive costs down. A few years ago, Toyota, working with Redmond Washington based Kymeta said the Satellite connected car would be out this decade. Here’s a news clip from 2017 covering the technology. [embedded content] Toyotas’ stance on the Satellite connected car has softened recently as regulatory realities, technology challenges, and rapidly expanding xG LTE coverage create strong headwinds for innovators like Kymeta. As we saw earlier, satellite phones exist today. Iridium devices connect wherever you are on earth. That global connectivity relies entirely on Iridium’s existing constellation of LEO satellites. [embedded content] But Iridium is still relatively expensive and low bandwidth compared to LTE. The enabler for increased bandwidth in satellite communication is the ability of higher frequency radio waves to transport greater amounts of data (assuming compression techniques offer similar improvements across the frequency range). Companies like Iridium use relatively low-frequency RF in the 1-2 GHz range. Radio waves in this range may be received and transmitted using a simple, omnidirectional (stick) antenna at individual user endpoints. For higher frequencies and the ability to provide more bandwidth (all other things being equal) companies like Kymeta want to use frequencies anywhere from 10GHz to 40GHz and beyond. Traditionally, at these higher frequencies, devices had to capture the radio waves and focus the energy using a reflective parabolic satellite dish. These alloy apertures have served as the workhorse of the SATCOM industry for many decades. When you place a parabolic dish on a moving vehicle (land, sea or air) then the gimbal mechanism used to stabilize and point the antenna is bulky and expensive. The image below is actually for communicating “on the pause”. Only then can the antenna deploy, acquire and track the satellite. Vehicle Mounted Satellite Antenna. Source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_Communications_Response_Vehicle Next-generation satellite antennas will capture and form beams of radio waves using flat panels that sense and create (receive and transmit) energy at varying angles. This beamforming and steering alleviates the need for parabolic reflectors and mechanical gimbals and allows designers to integrate antennas into flat, upward-facing surfaces. Mobile phone technology uses these techniques but over relatively short distances today. A great overview of electronic beamforming used in flat panels is given in this short video: [embedded content] The underlying technology for flat panel antennas is evolving quickly. We talked about Kymeta who uses LCD technology (same as in flat-screen TVs and monitors – a great volume driver). Other companies like Anokiwave in southern California are developing silicon for antenna developers to create arrays for various markets. This boutique silicon is much like what companies such as Intel do for smartphone and computer equipment vendors. So flat panel technology exists today that can go on the roof of a car and connect that vehicle via satellite to the internet at impressive data rates (multi Mb/s). It is expensive and not all the assets are up in space to give global LTE like service. When will the surface offered by a motorcycle helmet or gas tank be sufficient to form a beam to send and receive data to these soon to be application hungry LEO constellations? My thinking is we are at least a decade away but I suspect there are ADV inmates closer to this technology than me. It would be great to hear your thoughts! Remember, dream big, it’s free. Finally, designers at Apple, staying true to form, will go it alone on this quest for global access. According to the February 2020 issue of Satellite Mobility World, the Apple approach would offer ubiquitous coverage, albeit at reduced rates, without the need for antenna hardware outside of today’s smartphone package. Is this the winning combination for adventure riders? I for one am quite happy to hear that Apple continues to innovate. iPhone Direct to Satellite.

Even if you prefer to be completely untethered when you are off the grid fellow riders want to know! Vezi sursa

  13. Published on 02.18.2020 Continental continues to expand their TKC line for 2020, offering more choice than ever with the development of the all-new TKC 70 Rocks adventure tire. The popular TKC 80 has been a long-standing favorite among ADV and Dual Sport riders alike, known for their versatility in on-road and off-road settings. Yet the TKC 80s often get criticized for their lack of longevity. On the other hand, Continental’s TKC 70 adventure tires offer improved mileage, but are a bit too road oriented for those who frequent the dirt more than just occasionally. Now Continental is offering something that slots right in between the two popular tires with the TKC 70 Rocks rear tire, giving riders more street grip and longevity than the TKC 80, along with better off-road traction than the TKC 70. Continental claims their new tire offers more traction off-road with the usual road performance of the TKC 70, and says they are pleasantly quiet thanks to an enhanced lug arrangement designed to suppress noise. Compared to the design of the TKC 70 rear tire, the Rocks version gets rid of the uninterrupted strip of rubber down the center in favor of a staggered lug arrangement with cutouts to give it improved off-road grip. And while the new TKC 70 Rocks have a somewhat knobby-style appearance, it’s not quite the open-tread design of the TKC 80. ADVERTISEMENT The new TKC 70 Rocks adventure tires incorporate advanced technology as well, like Continental’s MultiGrip curing process that gives them a harder, more wear-resistant center and softer, grippier side tread for better cornering performance. They also use ZeroDegree steel belt technology for more-precise handling and stability at high speeds, along with improved durability. Additionally, their RainGrip tire compound has a higher silica content that makes it possible to ride safer and faster on wet roads, without a loss of performance in the dry. And all TKC 70 Rocks adventure tires are handmade in Continentals’ Korbach, Germany factory. The TKC 70 Rocks rear tire slots in between the TKC 70 and TKC 80 in terms of on-road/off-road performance and longevity, giving adventure riders more choices.The new TKC 70 Rocks come in rear tires only and are designed to be paired with either a TKC 70 or TKC 80 front tire. With TKC 80 tires typically wearing out at a rate of two rears to one front, swapping to a Rocks rear may provide a more similar front/rear wear pattern. For those adventure riders who prefer optimal traction for asphalt and increased mileage on the highway but want more confidence in the dirt, TKC 70 front matched with the Rocks rear could be an ideal combo. No word yet on whether Continental plans to create a Rocks front tire as well. [embedded content] TKC 70 Rocks Sizes: 130/80-17 140/80-17 150/70-17 170/60-17 150/70-18 Look for the new TKC 70 Rocks at your local dealer soon. We look forward to seeing how these new Conti tires perform and we’ll report back as more details are released. For more information visit continental-tires.com.
  14. Vreau sa ma apuc de enduro.

    Salutare, ma gandesc serios de ceva vreme sa ma apuc de enduro , vreau sa subliniez nu prea o sa ma duc deloc pe nu stiu ce vai, munti etc ceva de strada cu pafele si ceva dealuri cu pietre cam asta e ideea , nu stiu ce sa aleg ce motor , am un buget restrans de 1500 de euro cam asa.Si vreau sa specific ca is incepator chiar n am mai pus niciodata fundu pe o motoreta decat fooarte putin si asta de mult titmp.Ce imi recomandati sa fac, poate ma invatati ceva de inceput si nu nu instructor pentru ca aici in zona mea nu este asa ceva =)).Mersi mult si astept ceva raspuns.

  16. R2W (Ready-to-wash) este un concept nou de spălătorie modernă, recomandată motocicletelor și scuterelor. Ori de câte ori mi-am spălat motocicleta la spălătoriile din oraș, am rămas cu pete pe piesele cromate și pe cele din aluminiu eloxat. Asta nu era singura problemă care mă deranja. Când ajungeam la spălătorie, trebuia să aștept până se răcea motorul, căruia nu-i făcea bine apa rece turnată peste motorul fierbinte. Din aceste motive, de ani de zile, îmi spăl motocicletele acasă, dar locuiesc la casă și e mai simplu. Toate aceste inconveniente au fost rezolvate de noile spălătorii apărute, care folosesc apă caldă, tratată și detergenți fără sodă. Motor Team, dealerul Honda și Suzuki din București, a inaugurat recent o astfel de spălătorie modernă, un concept nou, R2W (Ready-to-Wash), model foarte popular în Europa, intrat recent și în țara noastră. Este un sistem self-service, în care clientul cumpără jetoane, adică timp, cele patru programe oferite de instalația de spălare fiind la alegerea clientului. Pentru noi, motocicliștii, nu toate programele sunt utile, dar un scuter sau o motocicletă poate fi spălată foarte repede, fără urme sau pete la final. Un jeton costă 2,5 lei, poate fi cumpărat prin aplicația R2W, care poate fi instalată pe telefon și îți oferă 2 minute de utilizare a instalației cu oricare dintre cele patru programe, apa utilizată fiind filtrată de două ori prin niște filtre de osmoză. Și aici, apropos de apa tratată prin osmoză, am auzit una dintre cele mai stupide și xx întâmplări adevarate, tipică pentru România. desprinsa parca din serialul de comedie Las Fierbinți. La una din spălătoriile de același tip proaspăt deschise în București, auzind că apa este tratată prin osmoză și este pură, chiar dacă nimeni nu a specificat că apa ar fi potabilă, au apărut niște gospodari care au plătit cinstit jetoanele și au umplut niște mari bidoane cu apa din instalație, pentru murături. Așadar, nu dați fuga cu butoaiele pentru murături la spălătorie, dar puteți încerca o spălare pe motocicleta voastră, cred că o să-i placă.

  18. Chiar dacă cei de la Transition se laudă cu cadre mai lungi, mai joase și cu unghiuri mai mici, geometria nouă a modelului Transition Scout 2020 nu e foarte departe de standardele din domeniu. Chiar dacă devine plictisitoare această trecere la noile standarde a tuturor bicicletelor, comportamentul acestora pe trail nu e deloc plictisitor. Scout păstrează roțile de 27.5 dar în afară de acestea, totul este mai mare în 2020 iar detaliile complete au fost făcute publice. [embedded content] Scout se întoarce în 2020, dar de data asta din carbon. Cadrul este complet din carbon, incluzând aici triunghiul față, triunghiul spate și bascula. Toate sunt fabricate din fibre premium japoneze Toray cu un amestec de material 24T și 30T, echilibrat pentru a obține valorile dorite de rigiditate, rezistență și protecție la impact. Metoda de producție cu matrițe EPS învelite cu latex permite Transition să obțină linii foarte clare și unghiuri strânse ale cadrului. Rezultatul e un echilibru perfect între rezistență și greutate și mai puțin material pierdut la fabricație. Construit pentru furci cu cursa de 150 mm, cadrul are cursa pe spate mărită cu 10 mm față de modelul anterior, la 140 mm. Această valoare e obținută folosind un amortizor cu cursa de 57.5 mm. Mai mult, Transition a proiectat cadrul pentru a putea fi folosit și cu amortizor mai lung, de 62.5 mm, ceea ce mărește cursa pe spate la 150 mm. Platforma suspensiei de pe Transitiona Scout oferă o rată de progresie de 25%, aproape liniară, pe toată cursa. Transition spune că asta are ca rezultat o funcționare fină și consistentă, cu mult suport. Amortizorul pe aer are doar un distanțier de volum, ceea ce permite utilizatorilor să modifice rampa. Cadrul funcționează bine și dacă se montează un amortizor cu arc. Modelul 2020 este mai lung decât cel din 2019, fiind oferit în aceleași mărimi între XS și XL, reach-ul fiind mai mare cu 10 mm pentru fiecare, de la 410 mm la XS până la 510 mm la XL. Unghiul furcii scade la 64 de grade și chainstay-ul crește la 430 mm, rezultatul fiind o creștere serioasă a wheelbase-ului de la 1189 la 1217 mm în mărimea M. Offset-ul furcii rămâne mic, la 37 mm, pentru un trail lung. Seat tube-ul însă nu respectă regula, fiind chiar invers. Acesta a ajuns la 77.2 grade în mărimea M, variind între 78.2 grade la XS și 76.4 grade la XL. Seat tube-ul este complet drept, bine proiectat pentru a accepta tije dropper cu cursa foarte lungă. Acestea vin standard cu cursa de 120 mm la XS, 150 mm la S, 180 mm la M și 210 mm la L și XL. Monoblocul e practic cu 2 mm mai sus decât la modelul 2019, la o înălțime de 18 mm. [embedded content] Cadrul Transition Scout are o greutate de 3.2 kg cu amortizor. În spate folosește butuc Boost și are chainstay-uri de 430 mm, valoare egală la toate mărimile, cu spațiu pentru anvelope de 2.6. Cadrul folosește în pivoți rulmenți Enduro Max de mărime standard, cu protecție suplimentară pentru a evita intrarea apei iarna sau la spălare. Cuvetele sunt de 44/56 mm, permițând micșorarea unghiului furcii de 64 de grade dacă se dorește. Rutarea cablurilor este un amestec între intern și extern. Cablul schimbătorului ese rutat intern prin ghidaje în timp ce frâna spate e rutată extern. Triunghiul față are prinderi pentru un bidon pe downtube, sub toptube existând puncte de prindere pentru accesorii. Chainstay-urile au protecții de cauciuc pe partea dreaptă, pentru a evita lovirea cadrului și a păstra zgomotul la minim. Pivotul chainstay-ului a fost lățit special pentru a permite montarea unei protecții mai late. Protecțiile de chainstay, downtube și seat stay sunt montate la nivel cu cadrul, pentru linii continue și pentru a evita lovirea călcâiului la pedalat. Sunt disponibile trei versiuni de Transition Scout Carbon pentru 2020, echipate cu componente superioare SRAM, toate disponibile în culorile Midnight Blue și Olive Green. În varianta inferioară e modelul Scout NX, cu transmisie SRAM 1×11 și furcă RockShox Lyrik. Modelul intermediar Scout GX folosește transmisia SRAM 1×12 GX, amortizor RockShox SuperDeluxe Ultimate și furcă Lyrik Ultimate. Modelul de top folosește transmisia SRAM 1×12 X01, roți DT Swiss M1700, amortizor Fox Float X2 și furcă Fox 36 Performance Elite. Detalii complete despre echipări și prețuri se găsesc pe pagina producătorului. Toate bicicletele Transition din 2020 au garanție pe viață pentru cadru pentru defecte de material sau de fabricație.

  19. Indian is apparently on the attack and has thrown down the motorcycle gauntlet to is “chief” rival, Harley-Davidson. “May the best V-twin win” is the new rally cry from America’s first motorcycle company. Indian believes that its all-new Indian Challenger is more than a match for Harley-Davidson’s Road Glide® category leader. In fact, they think the Challenger bagger is a superior alternative to Harley-Davidson’s category-leading machine. The Indian Challenger. Photo credit: Indian Motorcycles Now, Indian is announcing the “Challenger Challenge.” The challenge is a campaign that invites motorcyclists to test ride the Challenger and the Road Glide® Special back to back in what Indian says is the ultimate head to head competition. The Challenger Challenge will begin at Daytona Bike Week on Friday, March 6. Indian will also bring the Challenger Challenge product demo tour to Indian Motorcycle dealers around the country. The demo tour will also visit select motorcycle rallies and events, including the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August. In addition to the demo tour, select Indian dealers will have a Road Glide® available to ensure that a customer that visits their dealership can take advantage of the Challenger Challenge. A list of dealers that will have a Road Glide® available for back-to-back testing is not yet available. [embedded content] To highlight the Challenger Challenge, Indian is starting a digital media campaign. The campaign will have episodic video series that pits the Indian Challenger against the Harley-Davidson Road Glide®.

  22. Earlier this month, a California woman (Navy veteran and mother of eight) was killed in a hit-and-run crash, when her motorcycle was struck by a car. Now, her husband’s gone to the work of finding a suspect for police, doing the footwork himself. The sad story began when 48-year-old Brenda Jean Richardson was killed while riding her motorcycle in the town of Corona, says NBC News. Following the crash, police said they were looking for a white sedan, but did not announce they’d found any suspects. So the next day, Richardson’s husband Rod went on the lookout himself. Rod, a former police officer himself, started searching near the crash site, and found a white Lexus four-door sedan, with what appeared to be crash damage, in a nearby gated community. He called the authorities, and they took things from there. Now, police have arrested 85-year-old Toshiro Isa for felony hit and run and vehicular manslaughter, according to Twitter. Isa is now out, on $75,000 bail. According to police, they showed Rod Richardson a photo of the vehicle they were searching for, shortly before he located the car they were trying to find. The PD said “Teamwork with our community is essential in our operations, and this case is no exception“—none of the usual boilerplate about citizens not taking the law into their own hands, blah blah blah. And to Richardson’s credit, it seems he was content to leave the police to do their policing, once he’d done what he could. Richardson was a mother of eight children, and had served in the VA for many years after her Navy service. Vezi sursa
