Bike Parts Delivered by Drones?

Results Checkas could benefit from drones

So was that an Amazon informercial on 60 minutes for a fantasy product before cyber Monday or can we expect to get bike parts delivered to our door by drones? Check back in a few years and remember that Bezos exclusively sold Segways (code named Ginger) on Amazon. Bezos and Kamen predicted personal transporters would change how cities were designed and cyclists like us rolled their eyes. Since 03, bikes have had more of an impact on moving people around cities, and Segways are for tourists, and mall security. However, a drone used to rush results from the official’s tent to 40+ Masters racers, so they can see where they finished quicker, sure!

In a media deja vu, we’ve been here before with Bezos and maybe he’ll realize Amazon can get products to shopper’s doors with bikes like this fast cargo instead of drones.

If skeptics are wrong; well, then fly them bike parts and Clip-n-Seals around town Bezos!

The Track

We prefer mud, dirt, road to the boards, but still appreciate track racing for the speed and power.

Finally Fast Fat Bikes For the Snow

An important update to those fans that thought, F you and the Fat Bike you rode for Wired is this bike, lovingly just posted by Guitar Ted. My belief that fat bikes needed to go faster freaked the fans out who mistakenly believe they’re supposed to go slow.

No they’re not and this bike proves it, so does this one from Borealis. As I wrote

Don’t get me wrong; riding in the snow is a hoot, because, well, you’re riding in snow. But trudging along at less than 10 mph wears thin after 45 minutes. Snow biking feels like a sport that hasn’t figured out what it wants to do yet, much like mountain biking in the days when crazy Californians bombed down Mount Tam on bikes they’d built themselves.

I concluded the Wired article with this note

People made the same complaints about mountain biking back in the day, and look where the sport’s gone. The same thing could happen to snow biking as another generation of builders and tinkerers pushes this budding sport forward

and now that builders are figuring out what they want to do with these bikes, go ride one everywhere. We did, had fun, and will again, like we did this Summer on a Fatboy.
