Noticed this week: Motors, Near Miss, Chargers

A quiet week with busted ribs for me …

Mechanical Doping

A term we wished hadn’t got coined, cause it’s not “doping,” it’s using a motor on a bike and a conspiracy theroy was floated that Cancellara accelerated away from Boonen with a Gruber Assist.

Near Miss

Nope the cyclists doesn’t notice he nearly got killed cause crazy shit like that goes down all the time in China. Reminds me of the time we saw a scooter slide into a bus. Dude’s scooter is smashed, he gets up, waves at us and rides on. Bus driver and passengers are unphased.

Bike Charger

Gadget blogs all noticed Nokia’s bike charger. Also see Dahon’s charger and Pedal Power.
