Rohloff Dropbar Shifter

RS_outdoor_3.JPG Several people had asked me if I meant a Hubbub adapter when I said that I’d seen a dropbar shifter for a Rohloff internally-geared hub. But what I saw was this item from Mittelmeyer, a German company. I’ve seen two examples in person, but I have to say that I didn’t care for them myself. The shift effort was high and the knurled aluminium grip is really aggressive, but they were brand-new when I touched them. Maybe they’d break in somewhat. Also, I didn’t install them, so I can’t say if I might have been able to set them up in a manner more satisfactory. Anyone else tried these?

Interacting at SXSW

In these busy interweb times, when there’s a Social Media Expert around every blog corner, bum-rushing the latest beta, reactively dropping names, and ready at will to auto-follow on Twitter, it’s a relief to find another, creative and alternative view from Rhizome.

In engaging the social web we voluntarily fragment our interests, social ties and demographic information in order to make them “machine readable” and allow us to participate in these communities.

Rhizome explores the notion of web inventories – an index of one’s presence online – and profiles artists that are producing works based on the communities they participate in.

Digging this photo because it reminds me of the Tron Light Cycle.
