ENVE: Building A Faster Wheel

enve

While my CX season was lost to a recurring injury and not being 100% healthy, we did get a set of ENVEs in on test. I didn’t race on them, but for the few spins I did, they sure felt fast. In this feature, ENVE explains how they build a faster wheel.

“FAST” lives at the intersection of stiffness, lightness and durability.

Also see Go-To-Gear: ENVE Wheels in Issue 18 and from last year and the small world department, ENVE uses a product my company makes in their production process. Both are made in the USA.

It’s a propriety process, but Clip-n-Seals keep their resins and carbon fibers fresh.



Taiwanese Animation: Bennett on a BMX Bike


The Taiwanese animation recap of the Seahawks, SuperBowl-winning game has Michael Bennett on a BMX bike doing a wheelie hop on Aaron Rodgers gimpy calf. It’s epic and seen at 1:52.



Seahawks Win: Bennett Rides a Bike

In a Hollywood, storybook ending to a game that returns them to the Superbowl for the second time in a row, Bennett celebrated by taking a cop’s bike and riding around the field. The fans went nuts, we went nuts at the La Ronde bar, all of Seattle celebrated, and for a time, Bennett’s bike ride trended.

He probably could have ridden that bike all the way to Super Bowl XLIX. – Jerry Brewer, Seattle Times.

NYT summed the game up the best

After a 1-yard touchdown run by Wilson cut the Seahawks’ deficit to 19-14 with 2:09 left in the fourth quarter, after Matthews fell on the ball, after Marshawn Lynch scored from 24 yards out to put Seattle ahead, and after Crosby made his fifth field goal of the game to force overtime, Seattle won the coin toss, and that was that.

About the ride Bennett said, “just took it. You go to the Super Bowl you can do anything in this city.”

For his next ride, got to get him a Seahawk’s bike, like this one. He’s got three more at his house.

A City With No Children In It

City with No Children in it

The satisfaction I got from this ride on a stormy day was composing the shot in my head, riding to the scene, and getting it…

I was riding through a city with no children in it.



Who is the Strongest?

The French National Championships…what happens when the 2nd strongest guy in the race treats the strongest guy like the golden goose…or maybe plays it to make him lose.”
